Yeah! It’s been too long. Coming in strong from Wolf Drawn is KVLT Klips XII.

Matt‘s saying bye to Volume to pursue other opportunities and as a thank you, he put up a rather slick edit. Spine tire slide, ledge roll, t-bog, one-handed table and whip skid drop looked balleur. Along with just general, fast riding. I think FGFS needs to not have rules and just be fast and fun. This shit looks good. If and when Matt Spencer goes to 26″, It’ll be just as fun to watch though. Style is style, regardless of wheel size.
I mentioned yesterday that Cody Nutter gave me a little tutorial on color-correction recently. In 5 minutes, I began the process of learning curves. In the past, I’ve messed around with color curves but looking back at some of the photos, I cringe. They’re either too blue or too red and ultimately, they just look like a photo lab mixed the wrong chemicals when processing film. Andy from Fyxomatosis gave me the best advice anyone could give: the photo should look like it was taken with your eyes. With digital photography at an all-time high and apps like Instagram going viral, people love the nostalgia associated with a high-contrast, cross-processed image. But I’m not sure that’s where I want to go with my photos. Sure, this isn’t a rule but it’s a direction I want to stay clear of.
Back to the learning curves. The photo on the right is the original photo I posted of Matt Spencer during the LBC in ATX trip. The photo on the left is after balancing out the blacks and whites. Quite a difference huh?

I worked with Tzu Sing on the design for the new Todestrieb rim. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my photos of the rim in time for this video to drop, but expect a little review in the coming weeks. In the meantime, this new video by Wolf Drawn, featuring Tyler Johnson should hold you over just fine. Loving the bump jumps man.
I will say that these rims are completely bad-ass.
Weight: 600 grams
Material: G609 Alloy
Height: 23 mm
Width: 32 mm
Size: 26″ 29″
The Fixie Factory Wolf Drawn tees are in stock. Pick one up! Digging the fabric treatment on these, Matt.
By now, you should know what CSK is and even if you haven’t bought stickers from them (which you should do), you can appreciate their riding. Here’s Matt Spencer‘s new video, filled with full cabs, nollie x-ups, switch 180s and general street tech. If I woulda known this was gonna drop, I would have held off on putting up the LBC in ATX re-up!
With the new Photosets formatting, I’ll be periodically re-upping older content. While some will just get filed back in the stacks, others, from multiple entries, will be dumped into a new post. The first Photoset Re-Up is from when Long Beach came to Austin to ride and film. It was a week of thrills and spills and these are still, to date, some of my favorite FGFS photos. I picked about 30 from the hundreds I shot that week. Enjoy.
