Today was “bike to work day” in many places, and the turn outs were good. We were in LA and there was a lot of cool stuff going on like free bike tuning and free Water bottles. But enjoy one of the more off the wall photos from today! p.s. You better have ridden your bike today!
TRAFIK is gearing up for an awesome summer and is preparing to release a bunch of products designed especially for fixed gear riders!

But don’t take our word for it, we gave FOLLY an advanced copy and this is what they had to say… - Click To Read Full FOLLY Article -
YEAH! is an international design firm that creates high quality wear for urban peeps. They are made up of graffiti artists, skaters, cyclists, and other cool people…sounds like a match made in heaven to us! We spent a lot of time on Skype working with them to create this one-of-a-kind package with custom stickers, packaging, and other bells and whistles to make this product something you are going to want to hang on your wall.
We know you will love this new venture so watch for the TRUE RIDERS SOCIETY Tee to hit the TRAFIK Shop SOON!
VeloLove’s “Hell Of The Northeast” was another awesome race TRAFIK sponsored last weekend!

Plus everyone was given free admission to the dope after party that included an outdoor screening of “Pee Wee’s big adventure”!
Thanks to everyone for coming out, it was an awesome day for racing and chillin! The weather was perfect, the prizes were piled high, and if you missed it then you missed out! Our congrats to the winners! See you at the next TRAFIK sponsored race!
This past weekend the TRAFIK team drove across the border to Tecate, Mexico to participate in the 2nd annual Tecate Madness event. It was an awesome weekend right from the start…
Packed into a couple cars we came up on the border rolling deep… JOHNNY from LDG and SKYLMT, JAKOB SANTOS from LDG and Burro, JOSH BOOTHBY from Leader, and of course the homies NEU YORK from Unknown/Maestros and MIKE CHACON from Leader. The Tecate Fixed crew set up the event in an abandoned supermarket. Great space to just be ourselves without having to worry about cleaning up really. There were some ramps and stairs that made it like a street course for the FGFS riders too.
It got packed quick and the turnout was more than last year… dudes from LEADER Mexico came out all the way from D.F. Christian, Charlie from theawarewolfs from SD, the dudes from MEXICOFIXED, it was also great to see familiar faces from last trip; Bolas, Omar, Hector, Jesus “the Helper” from the TJ fixed gear scene….@achemele and Kilolibra, a lot of locals from SD came out too including Marcus and owner of Leaderbike, SAL! Big ups!
There was a bunch of events scheduled that day, first off was the alleycat. This race was no joke, racing through the streets of Mexico, gnarly terrain at times, plus drivers didn’t give 1 fuck, but neither did we. The advantage here went to the locals and it showed as they placed 1, 2 and 3. They brought the heat and knew their city well.
Johnny, Jakob, Mike and Boothby were killing the trick event busting 360’s and barspins over 8ft gap ramps and a set of stairs. The crowd was really feeling it. The footdown comp was won by Jakob and Boothby and they shared their winnings with all the riders that came out to support… but first they had to win an arm wrestling match. The rest of the goodies were tossed to the crowd. Unfortunately no ghettodrome for the lack of the wood, really wanted to get a picture of that, but we still had mad fun. No doubt they know how to party in a city named after our favorite beer.
Big thanks to WICHI and LAURA from TECATE FIXED for the hospitality and showing us a great time. To our Sponsors ERGON, WHITE LIGHTING, OURY, DVS and THOMSON for helping out with the prize bags. Thanks to johnny_coward for hooking it up with the ride even though it was cramped as hell. We appreciate him putting up with us, 5 bikes, 5 peeps in a Corolla with 5 traveling bags. lol.
It was awesome to have an international fixed gear event like this so close to home. Great work Tecate Fixed, see you next year!
