This is a great video showing how a cyclist is able to recover his stolen bike and also capture this experience on video to share with everyone in the world. So to break down what had happened here, the guy who made this video had got his bike stolen about a week prior to this video. When he saw his bike reposted for sale on Craigslist he decided to take action with a group of friends and confront the thief and try and recover his stolen bike. When arriving to their meeting spot the original bike owner was greeted by the thief and his girlfriend. After the thief is called out for stealing the bike and was told that the police where on their way he began to run away from the scene and later gets caught by a cop while he was throwing bike parts so he was not caught with anything. The story even gets better. The thief is arrested and booked with a felony charge of “trafficking stolen property” and his car was also impounded in a result of is arrest. This is something that rarely happen but we all need to watch stuff like this and learn from other peoples mistakes and experiences. I definitely can not stand anyone who steals bikes so I hope we can come together to help prevent more people like this from continuing to steal or bikes !
KNOWN BIKE THIEF FROM THE PORTLAND/SEATTLE AREA
Now out of all the bikes I own this has to be one of my all time favorites for sure. Master painter JOSH HARRIS did an amazing paint job on my LDG AERO FRAME. When you hear the term “candy paint”, well here it is ! When the sun hits this paint job it is almost blinding with all metallic red flake in the paint. What really surprised me was the overall weight of this bike. I was expecting it to be a bit heavier because of the paint however it is still easily under 16 pounds. I was able to shave quite a bit of weight by using all carbon fiber components. The LDG FRAMES were specifically designed around the EASTON EC90 products so if you are in the market for one of these FRAMES then I suggest using these parts as well for they are readily available at the LDG storefront in Huntington beach, Ca. I would like to give a special thanks to all the guys at LDG for helping me build this bike up.

For many of you out there that did not know about this movie called “REEFER MADNESS” let me educate you some. First of all if you have never “SMOKED POT” before than please believe me when I tell you that in no way shape or form does anyone act like or do any of the things that these characters portray in this movie that smoke. This movie was released in 1936 but was originally titled “TELL YOUR CHILDREN” and also referred to as “THE BURNING QUESTION”,”DOPE ADDICT”,”DOPED YOUTH”, and “LOVE MADNESS”. This film was used as propaganda to make people believe “MARIJUANA IS A DANGEROUS DRUG”. Now why would they do such a thing like this ? ….. It is because back when prohibition ended in the United States in 1933 textile industries such as oil, gas, clothing, paint, and pretty much anything “HEMP” could be used for realized that “HEMP” was basically taking money out of their pockets so the Rockefeller, Dupont, and Coors families teamed up and donated money to the United States Government to help create this film ‘REEFER MADNESS”. So I just say NO to COORS Beer hahahha !
I caught this picture posted up on STEVEN JENSEN’S instagram of his new SKYLMT SIGNATURE FRAME. Than I saw a sick video that was uploaded via FB by frame builder BRAD HODGES of a phone video taken by professional fixed freestyle rider STEVEN JENSEN of him doing some fakie wheelie circles on his new SIGNATURE FRAME. This guy has mad bike control and I can not wait to see when these FRAMES are released to the public. That integrated pivotal seat post is soooo sick !
I can not believe I missed this video Steven Dunnnuck posted up via FB of him hitting up this local 17 stair in Long Beach, Ca. I ride by this spot all the time and never see anyone ever attempt this. Looks like FIXIE GOD knows whats good when it comes to visualizing something out of nothing hahahha ! SO SICK !!!
