Massan for Chrome

I love watching Massan ride a track bike!

Chrome Industries worked with Kamp Grizzly to document Chrome Familia member Massan Fluker riding his bike and our Barrage in the hills and on the bridges of Portland. The film includes some of the best riding Portland has to offer including a gnarly descent of Burnside at 40+ mph.”

…and he’s a not a bad photographer either. Check out his URRRIE Zines for sale at Tracko!

Massan for Chrome

Do I even need to write anything here? Two legends getting together for some real radness! Expect the full video soon!

“Chrome Industries announces the live screening of its first short film this Friday, December 13th at noon west coast time. Chrome will temporarily take over its website for the screening from 12:00 to 12:30 pm. The Chrome Crew worked with Portland natives Kamp Grizzly to document Massan Fluker taking his track bike and Chrome’s new Barrage Rolltop to the hills and bridges of Portland. The final 3 minute short includes some of the best riding Portland has to offer including an epic decent of Burnside at +40 mph. Set your phone alarms for noon this Friday to catch the live screening. Spread the word.”

Matt’s Samson Basket Track
FlatTrackSamson-COVER

If you were around in the mid-2000’s, rode a track bike on the streets and still have that frame, chances are, it might look like this. I love seeing friend’s zippy, fast, track-drop equipped bikes get swapped out for a spinny gear, risers and a Wald basket. When Matt wanted something more lively to ride to work each day, he bought his friend’s old Samson track bike and quickly made the transition to basket track.

Matt is co-owner at Flat Track Coffee, my local shop and every day he rides to work in Vans, with his made in the USA, Austin-based, Helm boots in the basket and a few bags of coffee for customers. This bike is always parked inside the shop and finally I got around to photographing it. Personally, I love this bike so much, as I’m sure Matt does.
