More Classic Bike Jerks

Two things I am almost always guilt of are self indulgence and nostalgia and I just can’t resist posting another classic BJ joint.

This edit was the first to feature the crew of kids that I started riding with from hanging around Vince’s track bike boutique V.S. Social Standard.  It was a really cool time as the scene had a real focal point in the Uptown V.S. location.  You could pretty much show up whenever and find dudes to ride with.

This video is from the fall of 2008 and was the first time we had a full crew edit.  This was also the video that earned us our invite to film for Bootleg Sessions  and I still think it’s pretty rad.  A bunch of unique tricks, and Kane’s sick no handed Keo skills. Still super stoked on it after all these years.

Classic Bike Jerks

Between making that flyer the other day and the sMc Classic video I got all nostalgic about doing tricks on actual track bikes which lead me to watch a few of the old Bike Jerks edits from 2008.

This one is from the Spring of 2008 and features Connor and myself in a promo for the trick comp at the upcoming All City Championships that year.

I know the tricks are pretty goofy, but man was it fun going out and skidding all day.

What’s crazy is that because of our ingenious plan to title it “Fixed Gear Tricks” it has racked up over 1 million views

I totally have to get out my old 650 wheel one of these days.

Friday Funday with B.Ridget

Classic Style


Off to the U.P.

I just got back from Vegas and today it’s off once more with the dudes for a weekend of mountain biking and boozing in Copper Harbor Michigan.  That’s way up there in the Northern most part of the Upper Peninsula and about an 8 hour drive from the cities.

Don’t worry though as I’ve left a few posts to keep you entertained and B.Ridge has Friday Funday coming your way.

I should be back at the controls Tuesday with stories and photos to share.  In the meantime check out this video and get jealous.

the music in the video is terrible, so hit play on this before watching

Lee’s Peacock Groove SSCX

IMG_5873Today I’m proud to bring you the second half of the bikes from the FTP post, Lee’s own Peacock Groove Single Speed Cross racer.

This thing has disc brakes, a black paint job, and stealth bomber status.  You could easily overlook the PG hallmarks because of the understated paint, but if you look a little longer the craftsmanship punches you right in the eye.
