Matt Lingo is one of the most accomplished fixed-freestyle photographers out there and I love seeing the event photos he takes because they always embody the spirit of the time. He gave Prolly is Not Probably the exclusive look so go over and view the whole set.
Josh Boothby took first place and this one one of his best tricks of the day.
Steven Jensen’s tailwhip was the highlight of the competition. The crowd erupted when he came out the gate with the whip.
Rory McDermott is Redline bicycles newest rider and here he is busting a long slider.
Joe McKeag took 3rd place and was a really great rider to watch. He even brought his own obstacles.
Matt Montoya has the biggest boosts in the game. He got mad air on his Leader Pharaoh prototype.
London’s own, Oscar Kahn showed up and threw down a massive toboggan. It was great to finally meet him.
Matt Lingo has been photographing the fixed gear bike scene for some time and has just released some candid photos of the various riders he has met. I picked out a few photos of the Zlog crew that were highlighted. Too bad he didn’t dig up ones of me or Chris Clappe, he would’ve captured the whole lot of us.
The project was titled “What This Means”, as I saw these images as what fixed gear meant to me. This has always been about the people, because without them the bikes mean very little. Some shots are of just people, some shots are of just bikes, but together they paint the picture of how I feel about this “scene”. It’s in such an early stage that there’s no commercial or monetary support, and it thrives purely on the passion of those who participate in it. The people I’ve met are absolutely enthralled with it, and believe it will continue go to places in the future that they could have never foreseen. It’s with that thought in mind, that I constructed the edit behind the cut

While Tyler was in L.A. he met up with Congo and Matt Lingo. I am really stoked to see some photos of the new Sizemore frame that TJ is riding. Head over to Matt Lingo’s blog to see more photos of the two.
SE bikes has such a diverse crew of fixed riders. Each person has their own style and you can tell by the video that they all get along. There are so many noteworthy bangers, but I gotta say the truck driver from Boothby takes the cake!
Matt Lingo did a great job with the whole series of videos.
Some driving and fire and headbanging.
The SE Team makes their way from Phoenix to Las Vegas and hit up a skate park on the way.
Matt Lingo will be releasing these video shorts every day for the next five days. Friday he will be releasing the final documentary edit. I’m hyped on this week already!
So sick! It’s good to see Boothby’s riding skill matched with Lingo’s filming abilities.
