I simply love what Torey has done with Wrahw over the past few years. He’s established a family of riders that are all like-minded and ride with a similar style, the latest being Colin Foster. Colin’s riding in Baltimore and NYC is far from what you’d call the norm in FGFS today. Unfortunately, this will be the last Wrahw project, as released this statement with the video:
“fter four years of weird fun it is time for WRAHW to come to a close. This project has grown to a level way beyond my expectations and I am highly thankful for that, but it is time to move on. I really appreciate all the friends and family of ours that have been down since the beginning, and anyone who has helped support us in any and all ways. Thanks a lot. Stay wild.”
While none of these clips are recent, almost all of them are still relevant. Torey‘s crank arm slides are some of the best in the game and you can always expect weird lines. Keep at it man.
Digging this new design by Wrahw:
“This shirt has been in the works for way too long but we are all proud of how it came out. Ive been a nerd for sleeve print shirts for so long now and its sick to have one that I can wear everyday until it looks like a rained on newspaper. My boy is wearing a size medium in the photo above. There is the video that we put together to give a little more insight as to how the shirt looks and fits, and you know that riding had to go off in there.”
Pick one up here!
We’ll start off with the latest Wrahw Witchtape.

Torey has been working on his edit for Breakbrake 17 for a bit and like all good things, it’s worth the wait! His style is honed like an ax waiting for battle, so expect the big, fire crackin gaps, long nose mannies and all the techy tire lines he’s known for. This one’s dialed man!
Don’t miss out on this exclusive for PiNP.
Torey over at WRAHW posted up an in-depth write up on fixed freestyle that had me feeling a bit nostalgic. It’s crazy to me that kids would own a FGFS bike before they’d own a track bike and that a lot of people might not even remember when Tracko was into the fledging “sport”.
Check out more at WRAHW. It’s well worth a Sunday afternoon read.
I am pumped on both of these photos. The first being Torey doing a double tire slide, shot by Matt Spencer of Wolf Drawn and the second is of Osaka Funny’s BB17 Serpent, by Bob Woods. This company has a great roster of very creative riders.

All of Rick’s photos from this trip look great, including these two. I already commented on Rick’s Flickr that the second photo would be even better if the horizon and the shadow edge aligned. Regardless, these are great photos.

Torey was on the road in Toronto, filming for his BB17 edit last month. This nose mannie to nollie out was caught by Rick one afternoon during the trip. Looks dialed. He’s got more coming in for Breakbrake 17, so keep an eye out.
When I see bikes like this, all I hear is “KABOOOOOOOOM” “CRUUUUSHHHHH” “CLANNNNG”. The sounds of a big-boy bike. 29′rs will always look more bad ass than 26″, sorry! Check out more of this mother fuckin’ beast at the Breakbrake 17 blog. Torey, this shit looks raw as hell.
