This one has been sitting in my file for too long. Sorry it too so long to get some photos out Jakob!
One of the best riders on fixed wheels! Gotta love it when Matt Reyes drops a new edit.
I almost forgot about these photos I took when the Can’t Fool the Youth tour was in Seattle getting wild with the Chrome van. Good times!
Chrome is on the hunt for the next great street photographer. Hit em up with your photos here, and win some bags from their new Camera Bag line
I am stoked about this contest, I hope some new talent gets discovered.
more details after the jump.
Jake sent over some photos he took when the Can’t Fool The Youth tour was jamming at Beacon Hill skate park. This one of JD blasting a one footed table out of the park is my favorite of the set. See the rest after the jump.
Ever since I got a whiff of fixed gear bikes I have been reading zlogblog and today is the proud day where I share my own first post with the world.
Some of you might know me already from various events and of course Cal Anderson.
I’m Nelson for all of you that don’t know, and Zach recently asked me (and two other lazy butts that haven’t done anything about it yet) to help add more content to the site.
I’ll do my best to keep y’all entertained.
For now I have some pictures I took while the crew from cali was in town filming for Can’t Fool the Youth II

Went out to a rad hip yesterday with the dudes and grabbed a couple of pics with the iphone. I liked the juxtaposition of these two photos.
Neal Poland of Alleycatlife.com showed up for the ZLOGCAT eager to race and also eager to capture the action with his helmet cam. He’s posted the vid up on his site and shared these photos with me. Check it!
Another Red Bull Mini Drome event took place in Scotland recently. Here are some photos from the event. Hopefully this thing will make it to Seattle one day. Looks fun!
Red Bull Mini Drome took the high road this weekend and headed to Scotland for its second outing of 2012 at Edinburgh’s College of Art. Scotland welcomed the return of the world’s smallest velodrome this weekend as 32 of the world’s top fixed gear riders competed to become the Red Bull Mini Drome Champion at Edinburgh’s College of Art. The event also introduced a female final, a first in Red Bull Mini Drome’s history!

I visited frame builder Taylor Sizemore’s site today and was pleased to see some really sweet shots of the SS Cyclocross bikes that he is working on. There are many more photos over at his flickr so check them out.
I was able to make my way down to San Francisco for the 2012 Red Bull Ride and Style last month. I was really impressed by how huge the obstacles were and even more surprised the skill level of everyone riding them. I captured some video of the top 10 riders as well as photos of most of the freestyle participants. Take a look & enjoy!
Joe “My Name Isn’t Couch” Mckeag showed up prepared for the Ride & Style with an arsenal of huge tricks. His truckdriver was the first one I’ve seen landed in a fixed gear competition, and his 540 was a real showstopper. He is easily one of the best young riders out there, and will surely be a favorite to watch in future competitions.
You gotta hand it to Josh Boothby, he sure is a showman. He got the crowd hyped and fed off their energy the whole day through. His backflips were dialed and they solidified his win despite loads of stiff competition. Congrats Boothby!
Tyler took second at the Red Bull Ride & Style event and I am super stoked for him considering the intense level of competition that he faced. Tyler’s pedal feeble to 180 bar was, without a doubt, one of the most exciting tricks of the day. It is especially awesome if you know that it was the very first time that he had attempted the trick, let alone land it first try! Great work Tyler!
Thanks Eden for sending these through!
Check the whole set over at the Future Tense flickr group.
JD has joined the SE bikes ranks and is shredding on the Showtime frame. Good to see this dude is getting some coverage cause he kills it.

I decided to race in the Stairmaster 6000 alleycat on Saturday and took photos along the way. Congrats to Mike Duggan who took home the 1st place Mr. Goldencalves trophy!
The next race is on April 20th! 420 race Come out!
The race consisted of 12 checkpoints and each one was at a gigantic stair set. Participants needed to keep track of each step the went up or down along the way to get the maximum amount of points.
Here is a pretty dope setup that one of our readers submitted. I want to see what it looks like with the seatpost slammed for tricks.
