I love watching Massan ride a track bike!
“Chrome Industries worked with Kamp Grizzly to document Chrome Familia member Massan Fluker riding his bike and our Barrage in the hills and on the bridges of Portland. The film includes some of the best riding Portland has to offer including a gnarly descent of Burnside at 40+ mph.”
…and he’s a not a bad photographer either. Check out his URRRIE Zines for sale at Tracko!
Do I even need to write anything here? Two legends getting together for some real radness! Expect the full video soon!
“Chrome Industries announces the live screening of its first short film this Friday, December 13th at noon west coast time. Chrome will temporarily take over its website for the screening from 12:00 to 12:30 pm. The Chrome Crew worked with Portland natives Kamp Grizzly to document Massan Fluker taking his track bike and Chrome’s new Barrage Rolltop to the hills and bridges of Portland. The final 3 minute short includes some of the best riding Portland has to offer including an epic decent of Burnside at +40 mph. Set your phone alarms for noon this Friday to catch the live screening. Spread the word.”

Chrome introduces the De Haro Windbreaker, a lightweight packable jacket that looks great on and off the bike.
“We made the De Haro for bombing hills and crashing parties. On the bike, it provides passive and active venting. Full-length side vents let heat out naturally. The two-way zip allows you to unzip the bottom and increase wind flow. Reflective cuffs also function as cinches. It features a back cargo-pocket that doubles as a stuff sack.”

There’s nothing better than to finish a ride, see a video like this, and immediately wanting to ride again. Massan for Maca!

I’m sure, like most of you, I love seeing photos of Massan smashing on a track bike. Especially on that LOW.
Macaframa has been working on this commercial for LOW Bicycles in SF for some time now. Watch as Massan shreds his LOW on the streets of San Francisco.
Since their first models dropped two years ago, Chrome has been working on improving them. Introducing the Truk, as modeled here by Massan.
About a year ago, a man named Andrew Low came onto the track bike scene. Based in SF, Andrew builds handmade aluminum track frames in a small and tidy workshop in the Mission. San Francisco is widely responsible for the aluminum track bike hype and LOW has the made in the USA market cornered. When Massan caught wind of Andrew, he had to support a builder from his home town…
Just recently, Andrew completed a low pro model in a MUNI livery for Massan and I had the chance to photograph it in the Embarcadero on Saturday. With Massan’s recent induction into the Chrome Familia, this bike will be getting a lot of press-love, but for now, here’s my lens-love.

Massan just posted up a few shots from a recent interview he did with Western Civ Magazine. Head over there for the rest. Looking good man!
