Ramon Antonio a.k.a. “MON” has been bringing non stop flicks ! Antonyo Wothe is known for his tech and bike control but that bank ledge was taller than his bars … white boy got hops ! hahaha !
I have become a huge fan of MISHA FROLOV’S work. His filming and editing is on point and I always learn something from his videos.

This is one of my all time favorite songs and has to take me back to the days of High School hahahhaha !! The iMiNUSD TEAM holds it down and from the looks of these guys riding; well I will just say this. I have a VERY GOOD feeling that this years RED BULL RIDE + STYLE WINNER may just be featured in this edit. #SLUMWORMALLDAY KILLING IT !!! Not to mention the sick bike control by Matt Montoya … SOOOOO SICK !!!
JAKOB SANTOS has been going hard lately getting his practice in for next weeks RED BULL COMP in SF and its riding and dedication like this that will hopefully give him an edge at this years RIDE + STYLE. I do notice his bars are getting way way cleaner … even though he always had them on lock I can still see a difference in his riding and am stoked to see him compete in SF.
I am sure many of you out there that live in the Southern California have heard of the website MIDNIGHTRIDAZZ.com but for those of you that don’t … well then I suggest you check out this article by RED BULL. I am a huge fan of group rides and fun cycling activities and “ROADBLOCK” has been a huge part of the ever growing cycling community here in LA. Although this video is not packed with much excitement nor does it show any fixed gear riding I encourage all of you to watch it and check out the ARTICLE that goes along with it and educate yourselves.
This had to be one of the best times of my life last year and I can not wait to be back in SF for this event next week. This is the biggest race/competition for fixed gear riding in the world that will showcase the best riders in the world. Be sure to make it out for this event and if you are interested in competing in then be sure to read below for how to make that possible. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE RIDERS !
Red Bull has announced the riders for the 2012 Ride + Style Fixed Freestyle competition. Check out the list below.
San Francisco, CA (April 11, 2012) — On April 28, Red Bull Ride + Style will put the world’s fastest and most stylish fixed gear riders on center stage in Justin Herman Plaza for the second year in a row. Red Bull Ride + Style, a collision of fixed gear biking and urban contemporary art, features riders facing off in both track and freestyle competitions with the obstacles designed and decorated by local San Francisco artists. A fixed-gear bicycle is a bicycle that has no freewheel, meaning it cannot coast — the pedals are always in motion when the bicycle is moving. This allows a cyclist to stop without using a brake and also to ride in reverse. In 2011 the event brought together more than 50 invited riders from both coasts, including riders from fixed gear meccas San Francisco, Portland, New York, and Japan. This year non-invited riders will have a chance to qualify for the track portion of the event at the Red Bull Minidrome.
The 2012 event boasts a redesigned course for both racers and fixed freestyle riders, featuring artwork from the area’s top artists: Chor Boogie, APEX, Max Ehrman and Jet Martinez. The artists will be collaborating to bring the ramps to life by adding their own style to each feature, utilizing their fine art, graffiti and mural styles to give the course a new look. Each artist is individually established – such as Jet Martinez, the first “artist in residence” at Facebook – but for Red Bull Ride + Style, they will be collaborating to create something that represents their collective creativity. More information about both the artists and the riders can be found at:
Riders interested in participating in the track portion of the Red Bull Ride + Style will have an opportunity to qualify on Thursday, April 26th at Mezzanine (444 Jessie Street) on the Red Bull Minidrome. The fastest 15 times will be invited to face off in Saturday’s event against the top ten racers from 2011. The Red Bull Minidrome is a shrunken version of a velodrome, a traditional arena for track cycling. Consisting of a steeply banked oval track with two 180-degree circular bends connected by two straight sections, the Red Bull Minidrome delivers velodrome racing conditions in the smallest possible dimensions.
Due to the expected volume of qualifying riders, a pre-registration sheet will be available at the Chrome retail store (580 4th Street). Riders will be able to sign up for a qualifying time slot and fill out the appropriate paperwork starting on April 20. There is no entry fee for the qualifier (or Red Bull Ride + Style).
Invited riders for the freestyle category for Red Bull Ride + Style are as follows:
Fixed Freestyle: Invited Riders
Ed “Wonka” Laforte
Justin “Congo” Mitchell
Simon “Gomok” Andraca
I am really exited to see DESTROY BIKES ready to drop their all new frame and bars. With a name like 4.666 UNHOLY BARS and the “MASOCHIST” you can not think anything but DESTROY. I know for a fact that DESTROY makes quality parts and their riders surely push their products to the limits and still they hold up like a BOSS. Made in the USA !! DESTROY knows whats good !
“The Masochists are nearly done! We will be having a presale going on until next Monday, frames will be $400 and Destroys new 4.666 bars will be $50. We have 30 pairs of the 4.666 Unholy Bars and will be also releasing 20 pairs of the 4.666 Holy Bars, with vertically drilled out cross bar.
Also the long awaited Megalodon bars are finally here. These bars are super limited run and they will be $70. We are also offering 5 pairs with vertically drilled cross bars. These are Phillip Williams signature bars. Get them while supplies last.” -DESTROY BIKES
