We woke to some very sad news today, Christopher Contreras (Cono) was involved in a serious accident during a bike race over the weekend and has passed away from his injuries. Christopher was a local fixture at bike events and alley-cat races in LA and beyond. This is really shocking news right now. Chris left behind a wife and young family. He will be missed.

Chris was a member of Velo Pasadena and the organizer of the popular Fortune 700 race in Pasadena. Chris was a dedicated advocate for the sport and has mentored many a young rider. This was a good dude, who passed away doing what he loved. More details on the incident can be found here…http://bikinginla.wordpress.com/

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chris’ family and friends. RIP Cono.

3D printed bikes, really? In ten years most people will have a 3D printer just like we have regular printers now. And then you could print as many as you want! So now the question is, do you save up for a new bike or a printer? It may be a ways off, but check out the video and full article by clicking HERE!

We Ride Together, We Die Together…No Rider Left Behind.
It’s our motto, our message, our pact. Fixed Gear Culture is a global brotherhood of #TRUERIDERS and this new tee-shirt release by TRAFIK x YEAH! is a celebration of our shared culture that transcends race, politics, and language.

The TRUE RIDERS SOCIETY Tee-shirt package is the result of months of work with our international partner YEAH! BDG all the way from Bandung, Indonesia. YEAH! is a group of riders and designers who feel the same way we do about Fixed Gear Culture. Although we didn’t speak the same language, it was obvious we were on the same page. We worked with Boncu, their in house graf artist, to create something truly unique to celebrate this global culture. The original font we incorporated is based off ancient Indonesian text (Sundanese for you language geeks out there), and the front graphic is dedicated to our friends and fellow riders who have left it all on the street, doing what they love.

We wanted to make this the best product we have ever released, so we only used super high quality material – a difference you can really feel, and we wanted to include as many cool details as possible. Not only is there a front and rear graphic on this shirt, but two hidden logo hits on the sleeves and a printed size label. You’ll also find TRAFIK and YEAH! woven labels sewn in to finish off this piece of wearable art. But we didn’t stop there…

We added a printed TRUE RIDERS SOCIETY Hangtag and chain that explains the idea of the collaboration, and we had some special stickers made that only come with this package. You’ll get some TRAFIK x YEAH! reflective decals and a sticker version of the front skull & helmet graphic. Plus, everyone’s favorite TRAFIK Bike Decals are thrown in too. Everything is packaged all nice and neat in a custom printed True Riders Society envelope that you’re not gonna want to throw away.

So we are stoked on this international collab and we hope you are too! To sweeten the deal, if you are one of the first orders we will include a limited YEAH! sticker pack AND if you order TWO shirts, we will throw in a branded YEAH! Canvas Tote bag as a thank you gift (while supplies last). We already sent out a couple samples of this product, so we were glad to hear the nice things Folly had to say.

So stop by the TRAFIK SHOP and check it out for yourself. Did we mention these are Limited Edition? Yup, when they are gone, that’s it. So to all you #TRUERIDERS out there, thanks for supporting Global Fixed Gear Culture.
