I saw this video posted up by JBall and after laughing uncontrollably I just had to re post this video up. I think it is awesome that this lady eats shit while she tries to yell at a kid skateboarding. Even if this kid was out of line for skateboarding on a private property it still does not make it this ladies business to say anything to the skateboarder at all. I guess she got what she deserved ! hahahaha !
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

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.
It is seriously so awesome to see videos of people catching bike thieves in action. When I first saw this I could not stop laughing at the fact that this bike thief gets taken down by a girl half his size, but not only does she stop him from taking off with what appears to be her bike, but she takes him down ! SO SICK !!
Now this little experiment is something I have thought about doing before but have never gotten to it yet. I am surprised how nobody ever tried to question what it was that he was doing while he stole his own bike time after time. I think it was really shocking that the only person that stopped and talked to him just showed him a better way to break the lock and chain to steal the bike. What is even more shocking is that in at least 3 of these different scenarios you see a police officer near by or even in the background …. “to protect and to serve?” … my ass ! Well I hope this vide is a wake up call for many of you out there to invest in a good U-lock because not ont time did he try and break open a U-lock. Remember if you do purchase a U-lock device be sure to get the smallest one possible so it does not allow enough space between your frame and the pole you lock it too for a car jack to fit. Yes I said it, a CAR JACK ! Most U-locks that are broken into are popped open by using a car scissor jack that is typically found to come with any car that has a spare tire and jack. So stay smart and think about where you lock your bike and think about it … a bike can be replaced but it is usually the memories of good times you miss most when losing a bike. I know I love every one of my bikes !
Now when I first saw this I could not decide if it was fake or real. I think until the day I see these items in person and for sale I can not trust that this is for real. The concept is very creative although it may a bit cumbersome to wear a neck piece like that in hot climates even opposed to wearing a helmet. I wish these airbags were also installed in the helmets we ride with today however we may see those too in the near future. Now there is rumor that these have gone for sale already in Europe but I can not find any info on that to back it up. No matter what these helmets are super sick but what would happen if you hit something with sharp edge … will that puncture these “invisible helmets” and cause them to fail ? Or will the inflation of a bag full of air be enough to prevent head trauma or even pressure that may be applied to your head following a crash or even worse multiple impacts ? ….. I guess I need more proof of these being safe or real. #realtalk
“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”
Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

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 !

So this past Saturday was a blast !! I had so much fun out there with everybody that came out to the event. I remember showing up to the Staples Center to see hundreds of riders having fun and ready for a fun filled day of riding. I will be making a video of this event so be prepared for that. I want to thank all my cameramen that came out to help film this event because without all of your help I would not have been able to do this to the scale I wanted to. I want to encourage anyone who was at this event to email me their photos and or video clips to firstname.lastname@example.org along with their information so I may credit you for your work if it is used. I also want to thank all of the Sponsors that helped make this day happen. My intent was to make this day dedicated to all the kids out there that support Mashafix.com and everything I do. Without all of you out there showing your support for the blog this past year I do not think I could have kept it going so I thank all of my fans out there. I plan on throwing more and more events so be prepared for that because it is all about giving back to the cycling community in which I love so much. So stay tuned to Mashafix.com for more updates and photos ! #YOUKNOWWAZGOOD
CHROME has been going hard with the video advertisements lately. This new video is more than just a commercial for their SOUTHSIDE SHOE it is some sick riding and a great glimpse of what had taken place at Midwest Mayhem 3. As much as I love Boothby’s backflips I have to say Antonyo “WARHOL” #LOL has one of the most sickest tech games out there. Props to all the riders that competed.
