I’m out on vacation until the end of the week but I’ve enjoyed this one from Turf Bikes and Mike Schmitt. This was filmed over the Prickly Pear Jam week and features a good 14 minutes of the best. With so many spots, styles and tricks this one has just about everything current in FGFS. Has me wanting to get out on mine…
There hasn’t been epic fixed freestyle jam for some time now and the Prickly Pear jam hit this one on the head. Awesome to see the amount of time and work from everyone that went into bringing back a staple of the freestyle scene to the heart of the desert. With the support and progression seen at Prickly you can bet there will be a push for more events like these over the summer. Props to Mike at Turf for chopping this one down into a proper edit…
It’s been some time since we’ve seen something new from Congo so this one is certainly a treat. He’s been shacked up in Arizona for the past year and stacking clips with Matt Spencer all the while. Some new stuff from him in here and an overall proper production from two of the best OG’s in the game. Feeble to fakie feeble at 1:58 was too sick…more on Wolfdrawn!
Nothing short or awesomeness from Matt Spencer and this welcome to Hold Fast. Starting it off with a crazy slider in the desert and finishing off with a proper toboggan gap and a few other goodies. Arizona looks to be treating him well…this move should too!
Desert Polo Invite is coming this weekend in AZ. Every year this looks like a solid time. Brews, bikes and food in the desert. Like a bike Burning Man haha. Really though…worth checking out if your that way. I see a Sac player on the details so perhaps we’ll even have a few more out there. I know the dudes at Eighthinch are stoked to be a part of it again too.
Always stoked on some shop visits! PHX Bike in Phoenix Arizona is looking like a pretty spiffy joint to grab some parts. Well done video here from A 1986 Project.
“PHX BIKE is a full service independent bicycle shop located in the heart of downtown Phoenix. We are right on the light rail. Into fixed gear, single speeds, custom builds, BMX, road bikes, commuter, urban, ect.. We specialized in boutique items that you may not find in other shops as well as being your friendly neighborhood bike store. Expect same day service. We can also track down any part or accessory you may want.”
Whoa. I really like this. Such a mellow vibe but still makes you want to get out and ride. Some pretty good camera work and editing on this too with some nice artsy type shots tossed in there. State Bicycle Co. doin it right. Gotta love the way that weather looks too. Perfect.
