This image is rad on so many levels. I’m thankful for two things: shops like GSC and my parents for giving me all their Dead albums to listen to when I was a kid. Unfortunately, these top caps aren’t available online, you’ll have to head to Golden Saddle Cyclery to score one.
What is Langtown? This is Langtown! This backyard venue was made famous when it used to facilitate motocross races in the late 90’s. If you like to party, then Langtown is easily Southern California’s best race.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to take part this year because of a stupid wedding (just kidding Jesse/Ariel and congratulations!) so I asked Matt Irwin to shoot “a few” images for the Team Dream Tumblr page. The gallery he created looked so fun and was larger then a Tumblr can facilatate so we thought it would be better suited here on The Radavist. Primarily because Matt’s images are awesome and realistically only my mother views the Team Dream site (I know this because I now have Google analytics).
Anyway, it’s a party. Or it’s a race. Actually, it’s both. It’s Langtown….
Golden Saddle Rides: Yeti Pro F.R.O (For Rockin’ Only!)
Photos and words by Kyle Kelley
This bike is pretty damn old and you’d think that the stem and fork were too, but they’re not. Anybody wanna try and guess who built them?
Everything else on the bike is very period correct, my favorite part is the NOS Onza Racing Porcs though. Those guys are probably the best looking tires ever made!
The owner of this bike is probably one of the funnest customers to work with here at Golden Saddle Cyclery, because all the bikes we build for him are BANGERS!
This looks like a jammin’ time!
Man, there have been some great videos as of late!
“Tracko is for the children! Starring Andrew, Alberto, and Dermy. Watch Kyle take these kids through his old stomping grounds.”
Nice one Ace!
Ride hard, party hard and have a great weekend, you’ve earned it.
After the Mavic 125ANS photoshoot and press weekend, I kicked around Los Angeles for a few days, where I met Sanso, who was visiting town for a few days. She was riding this neon pink Dosnoventa track machine, which Kyle had just photographed for Tracko.
Well, who knows when Kyle is going to post those photos, so maybe me posting this will motivate him to.
Check out a few more below and it was a pleasure to meet you Itchy!
Here’s some more of that community building the dudes at Golden Saddle were talking about in that last video. Amoeba Hollywood will have two new GSC shirts for sale tomorrow.
“Bike riding is awesome: no released pollutants, one less car on the road, it’s good for your community and good for YOU. Amoeba Hollywood and Amoeba San Francisco are celebrating bike culture in partnership with the Bicycle Coalitions of L.A. & S.F. and want you to join us Sunday, August 17 12-5pm. Free treats, DJs, and a chance to win cool bike gear and prizes—all while raising funds for the Coalitions!”
Seriously, support your local record shop, buy vinyl, not MP3s!
Here’s a little insight into why I love the dudes at Golden Saddle Cyclery so much. See much more at More than Stores.
The idea of “free” these days usually comes with a catch, yet when the Levi’s Commuter Workshops popped up in Brooklyn, LA and London, free really does mean free. A free desk to work at, free bike repair / wash areas, free coffee, free wifi and yes, free tailoring. So what’s the catch? No, really, there isn’t one.
