The San Jose bike shop iMinusD is celebrating 3 years this weekend. iMinusD have been supporters of this site since they opened their doors and I wish them all the best for the forthcoming years. Head over to their blog to see what else is going down this weekend!
Fixie Famous, the blog that’s piggy-backing on a fun hashtag that Jonathan Davis coined, posted the first and maybe only video coverage we’re going to see from Midwest Mayhem 3. It’s really quick and to the point, focusing on some bangers from Antonyo (Warhol?) and Boothby.
All the major trick comps going down these days have a lot to owe to Midwest Mayhem. It was really the first big competition and the pivotal moment in fixed freestyle. After RideNStyle and other events went down this year, it’s easy to get hung up on the small turnout for MWM3, but I kind of like that.
I’m bummed I couldn’t make it out but it looks like people had a blast and a lot of these dudes are hanging out in Chicago for the rest of the month. Now the media blitz that will come from that trip will be off the wall. And even though I’m giving Fixie Famous a hard time about their name, I greatly appreciate this video…
What I would consider the originator of the fixed freestyle competitions is back for its third year. Midwest Mayhem returns! Don’t miss out! Unless a magical bird flies me to Milwaukee and then directly to LA for free, I can’t make it again this year. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to make it out, especially with those prizes on the line.
Shiokaze is the longest-running fixed freestyle competition in the world and it’s really rad to see Japan holding on to that tradition. This year, Chacon went out and took 1st place.
Gus did an incredible job on the Midwest Mayhem 3 flier. I can’t wait to finally make it out to Milwaukee again for this. Stoked!
Here’s a video put out by the non-stop FGFS crew in London known as Ninja Cats. These guys put new videos up weekly and the latest edit, featuring Sol and Oscar is not to be missed. Excuse the shaky camera throughout most of it and catch some of that creativity these two are known for as they shred spots in Paris. Some of this video is from a pegless jam where Oscar took first place, reppin Breakbrake 17 and Spike.
