Fixed Gear Freestyle’s Top 10 Web Edits of 2010 Dec 22, 2010

Last year’s Fixed Gear Freestyle’s Top 10 Web Edits of 2009 list was such a hit, I brought it back for another run. This year showed a huge leap in the progression of fixed freestyle. I counted over 1,000 videos here on Prolly is not Probably, with about 70% of those being fixed freestyle web edits. In order to judge these fairly, I based the ranking on comments and overall Vimeo or Youtube views. All I’m trying to say is don’t be butt-hurt if your video didn’t make it! Without further adieu, here’s Fixed Gear Freestyle’s Top 10 Web Edits of 2010!

#10 Slumworm: Wheel Talk Series. From their debut Wheel Talk edit to their second and third, the Slum Worm and WT crew made their mark on the fixed freestyle community. I wonder how much influence these videos had on them landing the P-Fixed deal with Specialized?

Check out the rest of my Fixed Gear Freestyle’s Top 10 Web Edits of 2010 below!

#09 Josh Boothby: 11 Before Almost 24 Hours. As I was looking through these edits one thing became apparent. The most hated on videos were not only the most controversial but they were also the most influential. Take Josh Boothby’s introduction edit. Flat 3’s!

#08 Keo Rock. One of the OG’s of the scene returns with some classic moves.

#07 Revoked: New York Movie. This 15-minute long clusterfuck of riding and shenanigans took place before and after the 2010 Bicycle Film Festival.

#06 Wrahw Welcomes Nasty. Even though this one didn’t reach the 10-comment minimum, it’s one of my personal favorites.

#05 Zlog Crew: Wham. I love the Seattle crew and the Wham! edit was right up there with the best.

#04 Wrahw Welcomes Tom LaMarche. The end banger clip was one of the best moments captured on tape this year. Holy shit!

#03 Chris Akrigg: The Maurice.0. Can you really argue with this edit making it to the top 10? Dude has total control, no matter what kind of bike he’s on! While he may not be a part of this “scene”, his style is unique and clean.

#02 Steven Jensen: New Rims Edit. If one thing’s for sure, people loved to hate on Steven Jensen’s edits! I have no idea why, his riding is where this whole thing seems to be levitating to and my best guess is that no one is willing to admit that. The bikes, wheels and ratios have gotten smaller and that means the tricks and tech will get closer to BMX. All of Steven’s edits from this year had a unique flavor and it’s easy to see why (don’t miss his Thrasher edit either)!

#01 Grime Bikes: 420. If any crew in the fixed freestyle community embodies the raw and rugged style of NYC BMX, it’s Grime. Wonka and Mike show us how to spend your 4.20.

Honorable Mentions:
Wolf Drawn: Trippin’
Elevated Engineering: Miles Mathia Edit
Skitch Clothing: Two Days in Toronto
WRAHW Welcomes Antonyo Wothe

There ya have it. What do you guys think of the list?

  • Jay

    good list even though I dont agree with the order all my favs from this year are on it. good looks on the honerable mentions.

  • slum

    That video was the reason they hit us up.

  • rogmaraton

    the first four all deserve spot one.

  • ZLOG

    Nice! Zlog crew loves you back. Happy Holidays

  • Coop

    I think the first Wheel Talk was the last “new” FGFS vid I’ve really liked.

    Oh, and LaMarche is always amazing. I wanna see more of that dude, fixed, bmx or otherwise.

  • Michael

    That list is cool but I think you should show more european videos !
    I’m american and I want to see more stuff of Europe!

  • Jack Stewart-Castner

    agreed on the #1.

  • matt

    i think antonyos edit and boothbys edit by lingo and one of congos edits def should of pushed some of these out (; js

  • prolly

    I had to base the rankings on individual post traffic, comments and Vimeo views. Otherwise there would be a lot more pegless, 700c edits.


  • Matt

    No Bikes 13k+ 15 comments. im calling you out! :P

  • Finn

    you overlooked so many great edits and listed some fairly lame ones, why did you base it of views and comments? why not just put the best edits that came out this year and make it that simple?

  • Sean

    Tom’s edit deserves #1 by a landslide. Had like 18k views in 2 days.

  • prolly

    Matt, Trippin’ had 21 comments and twice the traffic on this site as No Bikes.

    Sean, Yeah, it had the most vimeo views but the traffic on this site was in the exact order as it’s posted with 420 having more traffic on PiNP even though Tom’s had more comments.

  • Ian

    Hell yeah, I love lists. Good job, John. The only glaring omission (IMO) is the [email protected]! Hamabike 2010 edit. That shit blew my mind.

  • Matt Lingo

    +1 on Tom’s edit being #1 spot material. i back the views+comments+traffic idea though, there’s no way absolutely everyone’s going to be satisfied with the list and it’s a good way to keep bias out.

  • Corey San Agustin

    I honestly think the 420 grime edit shouldnt even be in the top 10. there was so many other videos with better riding. the coolest thing in the vid was a 360 and an x-up grind. jensen’s thrasher edit, antonyos recent edit,welcome to grime st and congoxwolfdrawn all should of made this list in my opinion.

  • prolly

    If I offered up very slanted and biased list, it’d be close to that but I wanted to try it based off site analytics, not opinion!

  • jordan

    I also agree toms could easily have been number 1.Regardless big thanks to prolly for always being on top of posting these videos to ensure they are seen by the public. Merry Christmas to all!!!!!

  • Markee

    John although you tried to be diplomatic, we all probably would have liked your opinion more.
    Either way thanx for having one place where we can check on everything FGFS and not have to wade thru teenagers talkin crap on a forum.
    Happy New Year from The Land Downunder.

  • agi

    Antonyo should be top 3 if not top 1.

  • Tom

    could the Macaframa welcomes Matt Montoya be #11? I like the song they used and he breaks his crank arm off at the end
