Two of my favorite Golden Saddle Cyclery tees are available online. One of which, for the first time. I love a good Sabbath flip!
Is the riding in LA the best in the country, or did a group of my close friends make it that way and present me with a great time, every time I’m in town? Who knows. I enjoy riding in LA, be it MTB, road or cross and while I love to ride road here, I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the real dirty Los Angeles.
Oh and Ty can really boost his Surly Pugsley!
When I found out that London’s Tokyo Fixed Gear reached out to Death Spray Custom to design the paint job on one of their new track frames, dubbed the Ono, I couldn’t wait to see what the outcome would be. It wasn’t until seeing Kyle’s built up in person earlier this year that I could finally geek out on all the little details.
This bike slays and not just in the ride, but the overall presentation. The paint just pops! Kyle’s build ain’t too shabby either. The purple Chris King headset and that AARN track ring really set it off for me. Mixed in with the vintage Shimano post and Cinelli Unicanitor…
Kyle says this is his favorite track bike to date and I can see why! See more photos in the Gallery…

Yesterday morning, Ty, Kyle, Sean, Moi and myself went out on a MTB ride. On the agenda: up to the top of Brown and down El Preito. I’d never done the full Brown climb before, the last time my rental bike broke down half way up the climb, so I was ready to see what all the fuss was.
We climbed up around 2,000′ from the trail head, soaked in the views of the Angeles Forest and bombed back down the double track to the El Preito entrance. On the way down, Ty found the elusive fatbike air!
El Preito was a lot of fun, especially on the Tallboy LTC. Tight switchbacks, rocky, technical descents down to stream crossings and lots of areas with “consequence” if you’re not paying attention. Basically, yes, it is an exceptional ride and worth doing if you haven’t!
Even though I’ve barely scratched the surface of all that Los Angeles has to offer on a MTB, I can say that what I’ve seen so far has me wanting more!
Check out a few more of Kyle’s photos below!

To party tomorrow night, then to ride some mountain bikes with the dudes from Golden Saddle, Mission Workshop and Team Dream Team. Hopefully, I’ll get to see something like this in person.
Great photo Sean! See the rest of the Full 36 here!
Mission Workshop is going to have a holiday collection showcase at Golden Saddle Cyclery, beginning this Friday with the opening party. This looks like it’ll be fun. So much fun that I’m flying out for this party and soak in some SoCal Cross!

These go fast, so you know the drill. This stock will be the last re-up of the year, so swoop at Golden Saddle Cyclery!
I’ve been working with Sean from Team Dream on a few products that we’ll be releasing over the next few months. From yet another run of socks, an ENDO vest, a jersey and yes, these caps.
I’m stoked on how they came out!
Sean from Team Dream has one of the sickest vans and he knows how to live!
“I always wondered what a bike rack on top of my VW van would look like, so my friend James McClung created this reference image for me. The boys at Golden Saddle Cyclery and I liked the drawing so much we decided it would be best to make it a t-shirt for Team Dream & GSC!”
Pick up one of these awesome tees at Golden Saddle Cyclery! My LA homies are killing it!
You’ve gotta see more photos here.

Sorry to be re-blogging so much of Fyxo’s content these days but he keeps posting photos of some of my best friends, including this lovely lady. Adria is arguably the brains behind Trackosaurus Rex. She’s helped Kyle out with various things over the years, including designing the Golden Saddle Cyclery kits. While I wouldn’t say she has a style, she definitely has a touch and that spills over into all aspects of her life.
