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.
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.
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.
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. night,

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.

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.
