You've probably seen one of Blake's edits with his unforgettable Tron bike, but have you ever wondered what he's like off the bike? Tune in for his interview and riding edit filmed on the roof of the OG in Austin.
Far East Cycles (FEC) is a Chinese bike company. They designed a flatland frame together with Jean William Prevost aka Dub who shared the photos with us so we guess it can be called his signature frame. In the specs we found some 'interesting' things like the CN BB which must the Chinese version of a Euro or Spanish BB. We assume it's compatible with one the two. Furthermore the frame has an integrated seat clamp and some little details like a CNC machined FEC logo. Below are the specs:
Top Tube: 19" Chain Stay: 12.65" and 13" Head Angle: 74° Seat Angle: 69° Weight: 1950g
You'll find some more details and photos in the parts section: FEC - Dub Frame.
We just saw the Hella Sweet Jam poster on One Love BMX. They wrote it's going to take place this sunday (June 16) and there will be a flatland best trick contest. Should be worth a visit if you're in the area!
The Doideira frame by Inside Out Garage from Brazil is Clayton Ferreira's signature frame. We're not quite sure if it is a custom frame or you can actually buy them. But maybe one of the portuguese native speaker's can help us out? Write a comment.
Pretty sweet to see Deco's newest member win Voodoo Jam in what was probably the most stacked contest we've ever seen here. Check out this close up of Tsutomu busting out jam-style to see what made him the best this year. He's got some big bangs in this!
If you're using Twitter or Instagram for example then you know how #hashtags work. You add them to your posts in order to bundle those about certain topics. This week Facebook is finally introducing hashtags as well. Using them is as easy as on Twitter or Instagram.
Ucchie went to India for 3 days to do flatland workshops with the local riders in Pune which is the 9th largest city of the country. The whole project is called Red Bull Street Maharaja. It's really promising to see that Red Bull is supporting flatland in India which could have a very big scene once flatland gets more famous over there. Dipak who is one of the most committed flatlanders in India interviewed Ucchie for the video. Furthermore you get to see his upside down bikeflip again in case you just can't get enough of it (we can't). Check it out!
