All over the world many are observing the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. For some this means a month long break from spinning at the track while fasting. This proper bit from a day at the track in Jakarta marks the last day of racing for the Jakarta crew…keep up with them in the meantime here!
Best way to beat traffic…follow the cops.
Nothing like traffic in the morning…especially in Jakarta. That’s a whole lotta cars.
Another cool one from Woof with this image you can customize and post on your own. Inspired by a local sticker/saying Woof made this to be posted on instagram with an image of yourself and the has tag #godsavethebicyclerider. Neat-o idea for sure. More here!
As if Fixed Fest isn’t enough to be happening in Jakarta here’s a really sweet short film called “The Courier” from out that way. The video follows messenger Emanuell Rendy as he does his thing on the streets of Jakarta. Pretty crazy how different this looks compared to my job here in Sac. Streets looks way different, packages aren’t nearly the same and the traffic is definitely not like what you see here. Looks like this dude is doing a ton of spread out riding which is actually probably really nice. Also noticed that Emanuell’s frame looks rad with the tube bends…wonder what it is. Dig this no doubt.
Man Fixed Fest is going to be so crazy this year! Here’s a little trailer for the festivities going down this weekend. Hopefully there will be an onslaught of coverage to come and with John over there you can bet on at least some quality stuff. Jealous of all the people that got to head out there…be safe and have fun!
Sean of CBNC is one of the lucky few heading from the states to Jakarta for Fixed Fest this year. I’m sure its going to be more insane than last year so you definitely want to make sure your bike gets around the world in one piece. Here Sean shows us how easily you can keep your whip in tip top shape with the Scicon travel bags. Things looks pretty slick…wonder if you can still check you bike at “art” for $25 with these though haha. Either way these things are sweet!
Jakarta is coming with some heat these days. So many dudes out there getting stuff down super quick. Check this dude Hery out…got some stuff on lock. Dig it.
