Sorry to be re-blogging so much of Fyxo’s content these days but he keeps posting photos of some of my best friends, including this lovely lady. Adria is arguably the brains behind Trackosaurus Rex. She’s helped Kyle out with various things over the years, including designing the Golden Saddle Cyclery kits. While I wouldn’t say she has a style, she definitely has a touch and that spills over into all aspects of her life.
Fyxo shot some great photos of Adria and her Landshark cruiser. Check them out here and if you would like to hire Adria for design work, holler here.

Man, it don’t get much betta’ then this. When Sean from Team Dream Bicycling Team took Andy from FYXO and me on a ride in the Topanga hills, we were lead to believe it would be an easy spin. Actually, come to think of it, I’m pretty sure I said I would only ride if it were an easy spin… Andy and I had just done a big ride the day before, I was very sunburnt and had sand in my crotch.
That didn’t stop Sean, who was amped to show us his home trails…
… and a little sand in the crotch didn’t stop FYXO from bringing his DSLR on the ride to capture some radness. Head over to FYXO to see the full scoop!

California is the place to be and even some Portland scalawags like team Speedvagen know that. Ok, so they’re not scalawags, but they sure know how to have fun! Check out the amazing photos by Jeff Curtes over at the Speedbloggen!
The guys from Ritte posted up a little video of them riding their favorite trails in Santa Monica. #LASucksForCycling
This is the first video I’ve seen from last weekend’s Lord of Griffith race in Los Angeles. Any others floating around that I missed?
Whether you’re a jet-setter or just a person who appreciates good design (and socks), the Athletic’s new LAX Airpot socks might be in your terminal. Scoop up a bundle of three socks here. Special note: this is a three-pack of socks, meaning you get three socks total. If you want three pairs, I’d order two sets. They’ve also re-upped the PDX socks too.
Here’s the reference for the design, in case you were wondering!
Here’s a great video recap from Wolfpack Hustle‘s HP Gran Prix. The sprint shots are amazing. Well done Rafael!
The homies in Los Angeles are always up to some good:
“The Department of Art and Design at Azusa Pacific University presents High Water,a solo exhibition and large scale screen-printing workshop by Devon Tsuno. In his first body of work using risograph and screen-printing processes, High Water is an educational exhibition, inaugurating the first in a series of new Windgate Workshops hosted by the Department of Art and Design.
For over a decade, Tsuno has wandered the San Gabriel River drainage system, a stone’s throw from the APU campus, documenting the disjunctive economic and topographic relationship between streams and rock quarries. The product of this disjunctive relationship has created an area of “hard-rock” quarry mining water flowing through a “managed” natural landscape.
Tsuno will collaborate and create works with students, using a large-scale format 60 x 84 inch screen print, on handmade Japanese Kochi Mashi Washi paper. This will provide students the opportunity to learn through real world work experience. The new workshop is made possible with generous support from the Windgate Foundation and presents students with the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with professional artists like Tsuno, by collaborating, discussing and creating tangible works.”
We all ride bikes but it’s what we do to occupy ourselves in the meantime that defines us. Love this video!

I landed in ‘Straya and am not as jetlagged as I thought I’d be. While I figure out why the toilet bowl isn’t flushing correctly (what gives?) and what the hell a “long black” is, you should check out the newest from Fyxo!
Andy from Fyxo has been working with my good friend and site developer Jon on his latest and greatest web presence: FYXO.co… The new site already looks great and what better way to spend your boss’ billable hours than dicking around on the internet.
Visit the new FYXO and check out FYXO’s Mt Wilson Ride!
Man. I wish I could be in Cali for this event. The Speedvagen Family will be in SF and LA. There’s so much going on that it’s best if you just head to the Speedbloggen to see the details!
