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.
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.
I have always loved going to Critical Mass bike rides but when I got a chance to help out with a local “Kidical Mass” ride in my community of Long Beach, Ca. I could not help but want to get involved with a awesome event like this for kids. I must give a special thank you to one of the MASHAFIX.com sponsors that donated over $1000 in brand new bicycle HELMETS for these young kids. So from all the kids and parents you helped out and THE WORKSHOP LB we give a HUGE THANK YOU to PRO-TEC HELMETS.

On Sunday August 19, 2012 a large group of parents and their children got together at Los Cerritos Park which is located in Bixby Knolls, Ca.(long beach). This was not just any ordinary bicycle ride. In fact, this is something very special that is put on every month to help young bicycle riders learn to ride as a group while also learning all of the laws of the road to help keep them safe. Kids from all ages showed up on this particular Sunday afternoon to take part in this group bike ride. The Workshop LB has been taking part in this event by offering free bike tune ups and maintenance tips to all parents and kids that come out to Kidical Mass, but this time was even more special because PRO-TEC Helmets has teamed up with The Workshop LB and Mashafix.com to provide free helmets to these young riders. PRO-TEC believes in tradition and so many many adults have grown up wearing PRO-TEC helmets that it is why we pass along this tradition to the kids that come out for this event. We encourage anyone in the LA County and Long Beach, Ca. area to come out and take part in Kidical Mass. If you would like more information on Kidical Mass in Bixby Knolls, Ca. please visit bixbyknollsinfo.com/kidicalmass.html or call 1-(562)-595-0081
The next Kidical Mass will take place on Sunday September 23, 2012 at 1:00 pm pst

I think the first thing that stood out to me with the STRAPS was the color purple. I have yet to see very many companies use such a deep color purple like FAMLI STRAPS does. Besides that I like how the straps are reinforced with metal at the ends of the straps to keep them from fraying over time. The straps are also fairly stiff yet not to stiff so for some it may be a more comfortable strap for everyday use as well as tricking. After 2 weeks of vigorous testing these straps look pretty good for the abuse they were put threw. So if you are looking for a good Fixed Freestyle strap that is not only affordable but comes in many different color options then I suggest you check these out. I will have them down at THE WORKSHOP LB on display for a few days so if you are in the area be sure to come by and check them out…. and did I mention they are HAND MADE RIGHT HERE IN LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA !
The top tube pad is definitely longer than most top tube pads I have seen or have used before. For those of you that are doing tricks this is definitely going to cover the entire top tube so if you are looking for a new top tube pad FAMLI STRAPS has got you covered their and they have many different color options to choose from as well.
The HIP POUCH is very spacious and also has a hidden pocket built in that if there was not a note attached to the hip pouch when they sent it to me I would have never found it hahahahah ! Besides the secret pocket I really like that this bag has plenty of space to fit all my tools, tube, and bike pump for when I want to go for a ride and not have to lug around a huge bag. One thing I noticed about this pouch was that it did not have a U-Lock holster built in to it as many other hip pouches on the mark have built in. However despite this I could really care lees because the size of the pouch makes up for that and I have always been one to put my U-Lock in my belt as I ride.
So if you missed out on yesterdays garage sale at the Fixie Factory in downtown Long Beach, Ca. then you missed out on some great deals and some good times. I stopped by the sale while I was downtown yesterday afternoon and saw bikes piled high on the front porch of the Fixie Factory with kids all over swapping parts and installing new parts and accessories on their bikes. I myself swooped up a new UNKNOWN BIKE CO. hat and some WOLF DRAWN stickers and patches. I hope they have more sales like this because it is great for the community and gives kids a chance to buy parts they could normally not afford when at regular price.
Omar Sebai and Johnathan Ball have been working hard on this Young Guns Fixed Freestyle video and I can not tell you how excited I am to see this when it is finished. Rumor has it that this will be released in about a month or so. There is going to be so much good young talent all throughout this video. So in the mean time #SMC and get ready for YOUNG GUNS.
