Kareem is now riding for Hold Fast, the makers of made in the USA components and frames. That’s a decision I can get behind. Here’s his welcoming edit to the team. Check it out as he rips with the 26″ Subverter frame.
Kareem has bid adieu to Leader and is now riding for Hold Fast. Here’s a recent clip of him bombing Dravus street and check out his farewell to Leader edit below. I can’t imagine bombing a big hill like that standing up the whole time. Crazy!
Hold Fast has a few new strap colors in their high-liter series. Have bigger feet? Or like to wear work boots with your straps? These are the ones for you! See more at Hold Fast.
Fixed freestyle’s Johnny Cage, Tyler Johnson is now repping and ripping Hold Fast’s 26″ frame, the Subverter. While I appreciated Tyler’s riding when he was pegless, the few clips at the end are ridiculous! I guess it goes to show that Tyler rips, regardless of bike or setup.
The Balhogs crew shreds the gnar at Hampden skatepark to some classic NIN. How’s that for a one-liner?
Simplicity is key when it comes to tool bags and while there are many options out there already, I commend Hold Fast for producing their own. Made with pride in the USA. Pick one up here for $13.95. My signature FRS are in stock as well, if you’re looking for something else to add to your order.
I awoke this morning to see this article on the NY Times called How to Win: Track Cycling. No less than 30 seconds into the video, the rider slides his foot into a pair of Hold Fast FRS. How cool is that? I know the US team has been using these for some time now. Maybe it’s time for a special edition track racing pair? At any rate, check out the full article on the NY Times Interactive. It’s well worth the watch and read!

I think this is my favorite photo that anyone ever shot at the Peel Sessions. Eisuke, or Sexy Sushi as he’s known, shot Jeremiah from Hold Fast tire-tapping this column, before there was a Hold Fast strap. It’s been years (2008) since people rode 700c with 28c tires and well over two years since Peel Sessions. I really miss those days but I’m glad Eisuke re-upped this photo. Nostalgia dies hard.
