My sister and I got some new caps from Killa Kyle over at Tracko this week and I thought I would review them. First we both love them. So comfy, and feels like they shape to your head right off the bat. Breaks in really fast, forms to you. Great for those cold nights, but also so breathable in the heat. It has become my new favorite and strongly recommend you pick one up. I get nothing but compliments when I rock it. Great work from Tracko and the homie Yanco.
Get em here!!!

The guys over at Livery, gave me a set of the camo straps. I've ran for a lil over two weeks now, smashed on em, rode in the hardcore rain we've been having in LA as of late, and I'm impressed. Through the rains, the didn't slip, they dried pretty fast, didn't shrink, or stretch, maintained the color. I also have a new training route which consits of two major hill climbs in Griffith Park, and one long decent. I've gone up and down several times in the last two weeks and the straps have not needed any adjusting, they stayed in place from day one. I'll while continue to update as the weeks progress, but I see these lasting on my bike for awhile.
Pick em up here for 49.99, which is a pretty damn good price.

1976 Richard Sachs Pistamo! I love Richard's work... one man shop who's been building frames since 1972! I really wish I could get one of these puppies. The only thing is It would get the shit kicked out of it on the street.. Rich, If you read this PLEASE let me do an extended TEST on one to prove that last statement wrong ;)

Got this post from a homie, thanks Justin aka Mr. Quick! Good looking out. Hopefully this will be the start of the end of major bike crime in LA. I'm sick of hearing about friends shit getting jacked. Everyone, just lock up smart, (two ulocks, and maybe a cable for your seat) watch your shit, and your friends shit too.

I saw this at lockedcog, and had to repost. I lived at the top of these hills in Oahu, Hawaii after high school. They really are no joke, steep and curvy as fuck. Thanks guys, you really brought back some memories of my youth. Instead of bombing them on track bikes, my boy Jon and I would smash down em on skateboards, so much fun.

This is amazing. For traveling, riding, and most of all, alleycats and street racing. For those of us who prefer analog technology
(or can't afford a smart phone) I hope this catches on, and most major cities get a map. Great idea, might be a little too late, but good none the less.

This is good history lesson for ya'll. I love Ftc, and it was my shop vist on my many trips to SF, while my sister lived there.
They continue to put out dope shit in the realm of skateboarding and fashion, and I pretty stoked for all their new contributions to track bikes...

I mean, wow. That is so cool, and so far ahead of its time. We can't even get bike lanes on most major streets in most american cities. Copenhagen ups the ante once more with bike handrails and footrests at lights. The footrest reads “Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here… and thank you for cycling in the city.” Bewm, good job Denmark!

Iconic saddle company Brooks has collaborated with Vans Vault on the Era LX. The Era LX comes in a premium black leather colorway with a few brown accents. As part of the same series Vans has worked with Filson and Pendleton, so you can look out for another two interesting collaborations.
Oh snap! Here we go! Lets make this a night, we'll never forget! Here are the deets....
The place is an open space work studio but if anyone decides to ride their bike there, they will have a room inside where bikes can be stored. The building is super safe and which is why the RSVP is required. Since we plan to have a good amount of people (capacity is 150) the security needs to admit each person in with name on list. So please send an email with your full name and we will be reserving in the order we received. The place will have a cash bar with plenty of cold drinks to enjoy the night.
Really stoked for this, it was our first race and the start of the TOLA! movement! We're so happy that Victor and his crew came out to film this, they put in a ton work and we expect big things from them this year! Thanks a lot guys, and hope to see everybody there!!!

@stonesthrow To celebrate the release of his latest album, "Echo Party", the MC/DJ known as Edan -- one of the masters of elevating the genre of hip-hop into sonic art -- will appear in-person for an epic DJ set, as well as to present the L.A. premiere of the film Echo Party, the half-hour found footage mashup companion piece to the album (directed by Cinefamily's own Mondo maharajah Tom Fitzgerald!) For the album, Edan was granted full access to the Traffic Entertainment Group's extensive back catalogue of old-school beats 'n breaks, and after layering them with his own instrumental work, "Echo Party" emerges as an astounding, obsessive pastiche of dance, rap and punk that utilizes everything from turntables to tape echo, glockenspiel to guitar, and Moog to kazoo. Tom's accompaning film is no less dizzy, mixing Bollywood, B-boys and a barrage of abstractions á la Brakhage into an addictive full-on psychedelic brainslayer that begs for repeat viewings. As well, on the same bill is the evening's opener, photographer Ricky Powell's legendary hip-hop slideshow! Powell (author of "Public Access", "Frozade Moments" and "Oh Snap!") will present a personally curated slideshow, a journey through his archives that spans his entire career documenting stars like the Beastie Boys, Run DMC and Method Man.

I'm really stoked for these shoes. I think they look great and they will be fun to ride in. I trust Dustin's
ability to create something that will stand up to the rigors of street riding. June cannot come fast enough for me.

WTF? I just saw this on Prolly's Blog and had to re-post this. It's pretty ridiculous that this kid got a ticket for doing a wheelie. Is that even legal? Really? F those cops, seriously..What's next, a ticket for wearing a black shirt at night?
the ticket says " Tricks/fancy Riding"
