Teamed up with Concept Bikes for this months Instagram giveaway. This month you could have a Concept fork, Titan bars or some tees headed your way. All you have to do is follow the details below:
I posted up a few camera shots of my new Concept Assassin last week until I get could it dialed to shoot some real flicks. Rolled by Pedal Hard a couple days ago to swap my pedals out to finish the build. Took the opportunity to shoot some fun photos of my bike in front of the neighboring corner store’s neon lights and signs. This is first time I’ve put straps on one of my trick bikes in yearsss but thanks to Zontrac I get the opportunity to see what’s good. I’ve pulled the right strap off to see how I like running just one. Still have to get used to it before I decide how I feel on being strapped in but I will say these Zontrac straps are damn comfy. As for the frameset I couldn’t be happier so far. Concept came with something solid (heat treated 4130) and the geo is real nice for throwing the bike around. Peep a pretty good sized gallery after the click and see more on the Concept goodies here!

I’m finally getting up some of the stuff I got at interbike this year. For this year I tried to shoot some little supplement video interviews to accompany the photos of the products. Here’s the first one up from Concept bikes with some photos of their initial FGFS frame the Assassin. I hung out at the concept booth a bit during the event and had a damn good time getting to know everyone. As far as the Assassin I was pretty impressed with it. A lot of companies that dive into fixed freestyle take a shot in the dark initially before getting things right and having a solid product. The Concept crew seems to have skipped most of that and have an almost finished FGFS frame that just needs a few little tweaks that are apparently already in the process of being completed.
Things I liked about the frame? Steep head tube and seat tube angles for an aggressive ride. The wishbone chain stays looks pretty unique as well. There’s mad tire clearance and once they clean them up (as planned) I’m sure its going to be killer. There’s also going to be a complete bike build option from Concept in a way quite different from other companies. They’re going to give customers the option to take advantage of some deals on parts from other companies and allow you to pick out parts for your whip. If they can get you what you want at a discount then you save some deniro and get exactly what you want from the get go rather than replacing parts down the line. Anywho, check the interview below and a full set of the Assassin below after the click!
Concept seems to be picking up a good bit of people as of late. Denis is part of the Rat Shit crew and a dude who loves to ride. Peep this fun one from up north to get you in the mood for some riding. I like that he manages to ride a lot of these spots with traffic and pedestrians all around while none of them seem to mind. Dig it.
