Tom LaMarche and his Track Bike Aug 25, 2010

Even the world’s best fixed freestyle rider (well my opinion anyway) rides a legit track bike. Wilis snapped this photo of Tom and his Vigorelli earlier this summer. I’d totally dig a series of these photos. The guys known for fixed freestyle with their track bikes. Hrmmmm.

    What ever happened to “these are the same track bikes we commute on / ride daily etc”?

  • Paul

    World’s best? ‘Cause of his hops?

  • prolly

    Sage, I still commute on mine and so does Tom. Doesn’t mean we don’t like fast bikes too!

    Paul its because he is the best. Tom put this sport on the map and paved the way for other fixed gear freestyle riders. Hes a trend setter.

    worlds best, what about nasty or jensen? nah, he no worlds best…

  • wilis

    Clever idea John…

  • Seth

    Fuck you Mike. Jensons bike is like 2 time to small and his style is wack. I saw la marche ride at Mayhem he is heads above others. No trendy tricks just balls out riding. Nasty is good but is a one trick pony

    LaMarche eats tailwhips for breakfast.

  • noah

    Theres no worlds best. We all have our own styles. YA FAGGOTS

    Haha, I’m not a fan of when people type “in my opinion” in their posts, but I guess it clears it up because it sounded like you made him the official “best rider.”

    Although, I do agree with you about how he “put the sport the map and paved the way for other fixed gear freestyle riders.” I remember watching those “Fixed” videos for Charge and even when he rode his past bikes on Bootleg Sessions.

    Don’t get me wrong, LaMarche is my favorite rider :).
