Post Card

I'm enjoying vacation. I surfed Sunday from morning to noon then the waves started dying out. I then went to a local bowl to skate. Sorry for no action shots of surfing. I do have footage but I left my firewire cable at home. I will try to borrow one from the local Apple store. I left the Outer Banks, NC and am now in Charleston, SC. There are fixies all over the place. People are skating and riding bikes all over. It seems to be allowed here to ride/skate in the middle of the street. In fact I skated down a couple of blocks to the Apple store last night. It was fun to get my shred on. I miss my bike though.....have a good week guys.

What the?

I'm bored...

Kinda like the others.

OBEY is jumping on board with a collaboration with FUJI.

Eff Why Eye

I copied this out of the July issue of ONB Synergy Newsletter. Looks like this is what's going on in the Glass Elevators. I wonder if they will be able to catch some footage for us and upload it to youtube?

City Parking Decks Now Even Safer:
The Birmingham Parking Authority is installing new, color, digital camera equipment in all City-owned parking decks. The new equipment replaces aging, analog, black and white technology which can no longer be maintained. The new systems offer expanded video archival and retrieval capabilities designed to enhance security in the decks.
The funding for the refit was included in the same City bond issue for the expansion of City Parking Deck #3.

Tube Pads

Not everyone is going to be into these but I dig em and you might too. Matt linked one of these sites in a comment and I wanted to put it where everyone could see it.

Behold Yancopads and Bici Concepts.

little driftle

Sometimes MACAFRAMA videos will knock me down and other times the skill level of their videos will induce yawning. That said they never let down when it comes to riding style, music choices, nice rides but most of all filming style and quality. Here's their latest beautifully exemplifying some basic fixed gear riding. Unlike most fixed gear videos I get the impression that their commercials don't give away the best parts of their finished product.

Enjoy and happy Tuesday...

What's going on here.

I've read most of the FIXED magazine that just came out and I'm clueless as to how I missed this? I have no Idea how this is possible but I'm going to try it. Loving what's happening at CHARGE.

And this is for Mark.

Confession Time


Clint and I were thirsty so we went to Milo's w/o you. It came back around on me though when my back tire suffered the same fate as yours. I gotta invest in some gator skins. Ever since I started the short seated drifts I've been chewing up some tires.

Thanks everyone for coming out tonight. There were 11 fixed gear bikes if I'm counting correctly and 4-5 others. Seth's Aerospokes and Terry's all white Velocity's looked good.

You know the drill....2nd Ave. Gallery Lofts/FAITH

This is the tire I removed Sunday right before we rode. I put a new $9.99 special on there and it's down to the threads already.

Thanks everyone that rode Sunday night. I'm loving seeing new people come out. More fun next week.

Stay bodacious,

New Macaframa Commercial


Fixed + Skating = ?

Pretty funny.


Blast From the Past - RAD

I used to watch this movie nearly everyday the summer between my 6th and 7th grade year (1986). Afterwards, we would jump on our BMX/Freestyle bikes and rip up the neighborhood.

Sunday Night Pedal Jam

Come early if your ride needs love.

I wish I could say that I have ridden these shoes but I've been a pretty protective parent. That needs to change Sunday night.

Sick New Clip

Grumblers and Complainers

We complain about a certain bridge we have to ride over...I thought I'd post this in regards to said bridge.


Because I wanted!

Most of us that read this blog skate or have a skateboarding background. So I found this and decided to post it.

Besides, it's a slow news day...

Dream Riding

Some of you guys have seen Pedal Mafia before and some might not. It's a fun way to blow 10 min.

Here's the stats on my latest.
Leader frame stripped and powdered matte white
Same wheels
Soma 4 gate cages
green King headset
Riser bars to match the frame w/ some green Oury's
BMX stem
and same cranks powdered to match.

If you build a ride post a link...

I could use one of these about now.

So I'm heading to Boston tomorrow for work. I have way too much to get ready for that trip to be messing around on the blog but yeah. I was just telling someone about how bad I wanted to take a bike and ride the city. If I only had a Freeman it'd be possible.

Freeman Transport just finished their first batch and they look perfect.

More after the click.

Just like Alan's

U Lock Holster

Found this in Fixed Magazine. Not a bad deal for $8.
The other stuff they are putting out is way strange. Take a look at all of their products and think about someone wearing them all at the same time. Now picture that person being Chewbacca.


I don't even know...

another for your consideration...
