Laszlo was riding a brakeless fixed gear wearing flipflops and no foot retention. We were impressed, he had crazy control. He said he typically rides 100 miles a day and just rode from NY in less than two months with only a 40 pound backpack that he considers “small”.
He carries only the most important essentials like a tent and clothes and we were surprised to hear he carries no spare tire OR Tube. He just patches a lot of flats and buys a new back tire when he needs it. He’s on his third and had to walk 100 miles after a complete blowout one time on the trip.
We hope he had a fun time. There was deer at Griffith park which kinda scared the crap out of everyone on the descent. Then the ride went down Sunset and we stopped for burritos, tacos and Tecate! Laszlo talked most positively about his time at the Grand Canyon and said his favorite food on the trip was Texas steak. He also mentioned that of all the cities he has ridden through, LA is by far the craziest.
We hope to catch up with him again before he goes back to Hungary. You can check out his travel log at this page

Saturday 8/2 TRAFIK and elohssa. are hosting the second annual PEDAL FEST SUMMER SESSION at Space 15 Twenty! There is going to be an Alleycat race, Gold Sprint race, Art gallery and more. It’s going to be awesome again this year so we hope we see you you there! Click Here for Pedal Fest 2013 video and wrap up!
Racers came from around the globe to compete for the coveted Wolfpack Hustle dog tags last week at the Civic Center Crit. Cyclists raced round and round LA City Hall over and over again, a total of 25 times. This year TRAFIK sponsored one of the 5 prime laps worth $100 each, which aided in making this year’s blinding fast speeds and stiff competition!
This year marked a major shift in power from years past. Leader Bikes came out in full force and took victories in both the Mens Road and Mens Track. Other big teams that usually dominated were almost non factors in this year’s main event. Everyone was surprised to see State Bicycle and Engine 11 finishing at the back of the pack for the first time. The Italian Cinelli teams best place was 7th, right behind TRAFIK sponsored locals DEG & Neu York. And even Wolfpack rider Willo was taken out in a crash on the 2nd to last lap. In the end Safa from Leader Bikes broke away for the first place finish! If you didn’t come out you missed a great event but rest assured there will be plenty more great events to come from Wolfpack Hustle and there is a nice video put together by Samuel. Enjoy!
TRAFIK is supporting the Wolfpack Civic Center Crit by Sponsoring the 13th Lap Prime. The first man and woman to cross the line in 1st place on the 13th lap will win $100 courtesy of your friends at TRAFIK.
We’ll be there this Saturday joining the crowd and hundreds of fixed gear racers right in front of City Hall. Take a look at our video from last years Crit…
