First up one of the best videos I’ve seen in a while, and it’s just spare clips apparently.
Whatever Tyler gets mad tech in here, I’m stoked to see people busting more of those
nosie barspins and he’s bought it to a whole new level. Proper stoked on this one
next up we have some dope shots of Rick Anderson by Shakes O’Meara, clean, good tricks, nicely composed – good stuff!

and finally a creative little BMX edit from Mike Mastroni – inspiration if you need some in this dull weather!
I love the music to this edit, and the rest is cool too. I’m not sure if it’s documenting anything
in particular other than the Singaporean fixed gear scene but it’s a pleasing watch
a bike polo and tricks jam to be held at the skiskate amadora complex in Lisbon, Portugal on the 19th March 2011.
Apparently some grime and wheel talk peeps want to get over, I mean damn I wanna go, this is going to be siiiick.
More information at the WEST JAM site and of course the facebook event page
nice little video documenting parts of the Manchester Bike Polo scene – I think generally
bike polo doesn’t get as much attention as it should relative to the amount of people
that do it, whether that’s because it’s not documented enough or in the right way I don’t
know, but this is a sweet little video
the big freeze of 1962/63 from guardian.co.uk – guy coming hard pedalbike on ice, I want to ride on the Thames!
Andy of Fixedgearlondon just upped this footage from april this year, the second of his bike
camera mounting videos – I reckon he should be talking on a topical issue at the same time in
the next video, that’d be rad. Soundtrack is excellent and weather is droolworthy, roll on spring
This is Tanner Monmaney’s part from ALOHA FIXED‘s “290ed” video, featuring some solid
riding from Tanner, great shots and nice vibe. Crankarm 180 was cool and the ender’s dope
another fabulous video reposted from the Council of Doom blog, which is actually worth
watching solely to laugh at dorky kids on bikes’ youtube videos if nothing else. I think we’ve
been spoilt by this one in particular, I mean MIA soundtrack, gnarling over a broken spoke
(BROKEN_SPOKE!) horrendous stairset landings and more jayde grenade skids than you
could shake a broken spoke at. It’s a wonderful world
we had a beautiful dinner the other week at St. Johns courtesy of Duncan and John for Christmas (not
particularly suitable for vegetarians but Aidan was still fed). It was one of the best meals I have ever
had – taters, piggie, salad and cider, bloody lovely. Word of warning, never eat pig brain (things got a
bit rad) om nom nom nom

THANK YOU JOHN AND DUNCAN!
Prolly had this and I thought it was pretty awesome. Weirdly I posted a photo of Leo’s
the other day and yesterday I found myself thinking about his name a lot, like at
random points throughout the day… Leo Furmansky, nice name right? Anyway this is
a cool little video, well worth checking out
