North St. took three of their most popular bags back to the drawing board with two new fabrics. Their staple Pioneer joins the Flanders and Davis bags with X-Pac camo and smoke grey finishes. X-Pac is lighter and more water resistant than the proven Cordura, giving you the “cutting” edge. Check the newest from North St. Below and be on the lookout for full reviews to come!

 

X-Pac Pioneer:

 

Made from waterproof X-33 X-Pac™ sailcloth, the limited X-Pac™ Camouflage edition is lightweight, rugged, and safe from the elements. Featuring the US Army Multicam camouflage pattern, this is the same great design as the original Pioneer, but made with lighter, stronger, waterproof fabric. X-Pac™ is made in Connecticut by Dimension Polyant. 

 

 

 

 

X-Pac Flanders:

 

Our best-selling rolltop backpack is now built with the same great X-Pac™ sailcloth we use on the inside of our bag, only now it’s featured as an exterior shell. Lightweight and durable LS-42 in Smoke Grey is a tougher version of our X-21 liner found in our bags with waterproof liners. For more info, check out this blog post about our fabric choices.

 

A special contoured hourglass pattern bring subtlety and shape to the slim profile of this high capacity backpack. High-tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and style puts this pack in a dead heat for the best we make.

 

Featuring compression straps that unbuckle when the load demands or cinch down when keeping it contained, this backpack is a versatile companion that is both comfortable and highly utilitarian. Contoured padded shoulder straps are built to handle all the weight you can carry and a padded mesh back is comfortable and is compatible with a waist belt upgrade.

 

 

X-Pac Davis:

 

 

Our lightest rolltop daypack is now built with the same great X-Pac™ sailcloth we use on the inside of our bag, only now it’s featured as an exterior shell. Lightweight and durable X-33 Camouflage is a tougher version of our X-21 liner found in our bags with waterproof liners. For more info, check out this blog post about our fabric choices.

 

You still get the same great waterproof construction and attention to detail expected from North St. Bags. A special contoured hourglass pattern bring subtlety and shape to the slim profile of this lightweight backpack.

 

This simple daypack is a versatile companion that is both comfortable and highly utilitarian. Contoured shoulder straps are comfortable and lightweight. Nylon mounting tabs are compatible with our Pioneer Daypack waist belt upgrade.

Few days earlier I finally had the chance to snap some shots on this beautiful Cinelli Mash Histogram 2015 of my friend Tom from Kendo Bike Shop again!!

 

There are only few Histogram 2015 framesets in Taiwan and proud to say this is one of the great builds with no doubt! Especially that Rotor crankset makes the whole bike look aggressive on the street! Some shiny green bar tapes to match the colors of the frame and some rad stickers such as Benny Gold, Nabiis, and God & Famous make it feel more street flavors! Good taste always comes from someone who really digs into the culture and track bike knowledge!

A hell of a look at alleycat racing in Berlin from Violet Pictures. Some rad angles and plenty of quick stepping through traffic in the mix. Bummed I missed this when it dropped but definitely still dig it!

Few days earlier on Friday night was our biggest, craziest, and scariest event in Taipei City and in the whole fixie scene. Yes…Halloween ghost night ride! This time the event was organized together by many fixie groups from the north to the south in Taiwan in order to celebrate Halloween! What even crazier was that more than 400 ghosts riding to take over the streets in Taipei City…People were dressed in zombies, spiderman, skeletons, and so on! Anyway, cut the crap and let’s see the photos at that crazy night~~

Last week snapping some shots on one of my favorite bike shops in Taipei City. Kendo Shop always got some stoked goodies that differ themselves from other bike shops. The shop with eight years experience is operated by Ken Su, a knowledgable guy that I’m always glad to talk with. Here they sell Leader Bikes, NJS, Cinelli, Nabiis A2, Look, and their own aluminum sick frame Kendo Orbit! Clothing such as God & Famous, Chari & Co NYC, Rebel 8, Swrve, YNOT Cycle and so forth. However, what always satisfies me is the comfortable atmosphere and a big space!! Never wanna leave the shop as I step in…

Been a while since we’ve seen something new from the Wisconsin’s Eighthinch but they’ve been on the move as of late.  Among the new stuff dropping is their new Dispatch frame. Hand made at the legendary Waterford Cycles these things have to be solid as hell. More pricey than a Scrambler but a sub $700 USA handmade frame is pretty damn good. Swoop here!

Many of you who have been around a while know the name Livery Design Gruppe or LDG and the clean aesthetic that partners the company. Theyv’e always had real innovative ideas that they execute with their Frames/components and always come out killer. I took a stroll to Huntington Beach to check in with head mechanic/shop manager Johnny Coward, FGFS ripper extraordinaire to see how things are going and what’s in store for LDG. more after the jump Read More….

Riding with jball is always real fun, lots of energy and for being so young he knows how to dish out some sarcasm, my kinda dude. Any spot gets murdered by this guy, park, ledge, rail, fucking parking curb it doesn’t matter, he goes in. With that being said, there was no difference when I asked him to shoot some photos on this chunked up, pegless unfriendly ledge. He delivered, check the photos, make em your background, save em to your phone, show your friends by clicking below

Safe to say that Crits are still king right now. When you get to look this pro its easy to understand why. Haven’t heard anything from the RocknRollin dudes for a bit so this is pretty sweet.
