This is something I would like to see more of for sure, so ladies get inspired and get on your bikes and ride but be sure to capture every moment on video to share with the world. Props to the VOLCANO CLUB and Fast Co. SF for putting this video together.
Yesterday I saw a picture of some Phil Wood seat clamps that were going up for sale soon on the MASH SF website as of today. When then homepage popped up I could not help but watch the Tour of California video they had posted. I had just got done watching the LUCAS BRUNELLE movie called “Line of Sight” so I was already amped on some fast paced riding so I just had to watch this video again. This had to be one of the funnest rides to ever go on for all of these guys. I really like the commentary through out the video and what they say about how MASH is just another excuse to hang out with your friends and ride. I have been a huge fan of these guys since the original MASH movie back in 2007. I can not wait until this years inter bike and see who win this years MASH drag race.
Now this story right here really means a whole lot me. As we all know last Friday there was a terrible accident at the Los Angeles Critical Mass bike ride that took the life of 18 year old Jerico Vivar Colata. It was said that he died after crashing into a concrete wall near the UCLA campus. Apparently he lost control of his bike during a left turn which caused him to crash which ultimately took his life. Young Jerico was not wearing a helmet which more than likely would have saved his life in this crash. Since Friday I have thought about this tragedy many times and I have been encouraging many young riders to start wearing a helmet.
Right now I am calling out to every cyclist in help to get back Jerico’s bike back. It really sickens me to think that some asshole out there would actually steal this kids bike ! I mean who really has the nerve to steal a bike at the scene where this kid just lost his life !!! THIS IS BULLSHIT ! I personally will reward anyone who can help get this bike back for his family in time for his funeral. I can not begin to tell all of you out there how much this really pisses me off. Whoever you are who took Jerico’s bike just know this, YOU ARE THE NASTIEST SCUM THAT ANYONE WILL EVER FIND ON THIS PLANET AND I REALLY HOPE KARMA TAKES ITS TURN ON YOU ! I EVEN HOPE YOU DIE RIDING THIS KIDS BIKE BECAUSE NOBODY DESERVES TO RIDE THAT BIKE EXCEPT JERICO ! I did not know Jerico personally but I for sure will be on the look out for his bike. So I beg all of you out there if you know anything at all to please contact me via facebook or email at email@example.com

Tomorrow is gearing up to be quite an event after watching this video from Kenny Arimoto showing off some of the epic street spots they are going to hit up in tomorrows competition. I really can not wait to see the footage from this event. I was planning on going but because of other reasons I am not going to be able to make it out to the event. So if you are in the Palo Alto, Ca. area be sure to get out and show some support if not compete yourself.
Now this HIP POUCH by ROAD RUNNER is just way to awesome to pass up. I know I have been a Pabst Blue Ribbon drinker for quite some time and I know many of you out there have been as well. So if you are in the market for a new HIP POUCH then I suggest you check out the ROAD RUNNER STORE and pick yourself up one of these before they are all gone.
As Concept Bikes is still technically a “Concept”, I do know that Jordan has been enjoying his Concept prototype which was HAND MADE IN THE U.S.A. by DESTROY which is a GRASSROOTS company based out of Northern California. Now enough talk about the frame and more talk about Jordan’s riding. If you were to go back and watch each video Jordan has made since he started making videos you will see a huge progression over a short time. So I hope he keeps up the hard work and somehow fixes his sweat problem soon hahahaha jk !
After watching this video there is not much more to say except this 17 year old kid Chase LaRue is truly gifted. Steven Jensen posted this video up saying that after only a week Chase has been able to throw truckdrivers with ease. That is incredible just in itself because there is not many people that can throws trucks as it is including pros. I really hope Chase keeps on riding because it this pace he is going to be better than any rider out there.
Addison Zawada quickly became one of my favorite riders after meeting him at this year 2012 Red Bull ride + style 2. This young rider is not only fast but one of the most humble down to earth people you will ever meet. Recently Addison took a trip to San Diego, Ca. to do a photo shoot with MATT LINGO for his website called REC FAIL. I know both MATT LINGO and LEADER BIKES were more than stoked to see Addison come to Southern California. Be sure to check out the FULL STORY at REC FAIL.
