The King of Vegas is easily one of the most notorious of street races of the year. With everyone in town for Interbike and the already congested strip this one can get a bit hairy. From experience it seems like every bad driver in America decided to go party for the weekend…looks too damn fun!
After getting a proper camera setup a couple years back this was the first “real” bit I uploaded. Having spent a handful of years in the desert looking at bikes this trip was easily one of my favorites. Words wouldn’t event do it justice. Grabbed these clips as we literally we’re headed for the freeway…still one of my favorites!
I was pretty bummed to have to skip this year’s Interbike a couple weeks but luckily a few recap edits have hit the web. This one from SPF has a few clips form the show, a couple of races and a bot of the daily mixed in. After seeing this you can bet I’ll be back at it next year!
I’ve already said it but I’ll say it again…Chrome owned the floor at Interbike this year. From going above and beyond with their booth setup to making sure everyone was entertained day in day out they definitely brought it. That being said they have a solid recap of the event from their perspective up complete with a handful of photos and a link to the little #ForgedRubber video I put together. Hop over for the full read and all the flicks. See you dudes in 2014!
Jereme got his recap of our roadtrip to Vegas for interbike together. Have to say this was one solid group of dudes to travel with and the #2BLOGS1BRAND1DUDETOUR was more than a success. He got a good mix of shenanigans and show stuff in here so sit back and enjoy a look at interbike from the eyes of BHSK. Good shit J!
It was no surprise that Chrome was once again the place to be at this year’s Interbike…and it wasn’t even because of the free booze. Live music, the best booth in the building and cool stuff like the Forged Rubber machine made it the place to be. I spent a little time getting shots of the process that results in Chrome’s upcoming line of footwear for this little flick. Though these were just samples being played around with the process was in my opinion the best thing to get lost in watching at the show. Recycled machines, glue less soles and rad idea. I dig it. Look for the official line to be dropping from the homies at Chrome soon!
The homie Alex has been coming out to events in Sac for some time now and killing it at others all over. He took first (fixed) at this year’s Vegas Drag, muscled his way into Ride and Style and and still shows up to just about everything he can. He’s here to ride and for a young dude he’s pretty damn motivated. After spending what felt like an eternity in the car to and from Interbike we got to talking about him posting on the blog. He turned me down a while back but jumped at the opportunity to share his race exploits and adventures with everyone. Look for some stuff on the site from him here and there.
Theres was so much stuff going on at the Chrome area this year it was hard to miss. Tricycle races, videos on the wall, live dj on the Chrome truck and plenty or free beer. Was super sick. I took a few minutes to chat with Steve and sadly only got part of it since my card filled. Lots of new stuff coming from the Chrome camp on the regular so there was a lot to look at. I did the bags in the video a lot. Classy yet functional. Peep a few other things in the photo set as well…including a roll top duffle and some dope shoes.
I was pretty pumped to see that the one and only Tom Mosher was at interbike yet again running the YNOT booth. Tom is more OG than most people in the sport and still pushing the limits. I hadn’t seen him in some time so it was nice to catch up and peep the new goodies. New bags and accessories galore and a really nice display for the event. I still remember when I prank called Tom a couple years back at BFF NY, being the first time we ever talked, telling him he better shut down YNOT because there was already too many strap companies around. It was obvious I was kidding and its obvious that YNOT is still growing on the daily. Peep the little interview below and more photos beyond Tom eating his lunch haha. This was actually the first of the interviews I did this year so its a little more improvisational that the other but I really feel it fits the vibe of the site. Peep it!
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!
