On Location: Sea Otter Classic.

Posted by: kris

Was down in Monterey over the weekend for the Sea Otter Classic. Doesn’t get much better than bikes and camping so it was for sure a good time hanging with the Destroy dudes. Despite the MTB focus of the event there were some fixed/urban cycling vendors with some cool stuff on display. Spotted Plant X who had some newer carbon track setups, Phil Wood with the usual mix of hubs/cogs and the god dudes of Fyxation. A few photos from the weekend after the click…

Sleeping Giant

Posted by: Phillip

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….

Testing Testing: State Bicycle Black Label.

Posted by: kris

It’s been a while since a fresh bike review popped up on the site so when State asked about giving one of their new Black Label rides a whirl I couldn’t pass it up. These things come delivered to your door mostly assembled with a decent build out of parts to get it rolling. Pop the seat/pedals/bars on, air up the tires and slide the front wheel in and you’re ready to roll. I had the bike on the road in about 25 minutes after checking that everything was tight and dialed in just right. Hit State for their whole lineup and check back for the real deal here in a few weeks. More photos after the jump!

TURF: Slingshot Stem.

Posted by: kris

Headed down to Alameda with the Gnarlos yesterday to knock out a quick Can’t Fool The Youth commercial. Met up at the Turf house before heading out and got a chance to peep Matt Reyes’ new Sling Shot stems up close. The design on these is killer and built up with the integrated topcaps it’s got to be the best fixed freestyle stem on the market. USA made too so you know its built to last. Click through for some detail shots and hit Turf to swoop]!


PS: Shout out to Matt for snapping some pics on my camera while wrapped things up!
