We’re stoked that so many people participated in our #BIKECHECK contest. We received entries from all over the world. Good looks planet Earth! The winner of the #BIKECHECK Contest will be taking home a TRAFIK Prize Pack, DVS shoes, Ergon racing gloves, and a bunch of sponsored prizes!
Here are some of our favorite entries:
Countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, United Kingdom, Italy, Puerto Rico, France, Greece, Germany and many more joined in on the fun. Thanks for the support! Fixed Gear Culture is GLOBAL!
And now…….drum roll please…. the winner of the #BIKECHECK Contest is…….. Mei Zhao.
Mei put in some work this past week and was able to get 600+ likes on her photo. We weren’t going to base it on Likes primarily, but we couldn’t ignore all the love her photo got… she took it by a landslide.
Since there were so many entries, we decided to award 2nd and 3rd place too. BONUS! So 2nd place goes to Nico Lasuardi from Indonesia! His bike stood out to us as unique.. plus it’s hand made! He will take home our new Break Away Tee and stickerpack!
And lastly, 3rd place. Nathan Chavez from Detroit, Michigan is taking home a TRAFIK Sticker pack! His was one of the last photos to be submitted but it definitely stood out – maybe because of the lights. TRON-style, but dope regardless. Good job Nathan!
We want to give a huge thanks to everyone who entered! Stay tuned for more contests on our Facebook page! Follow us on Twitter (@TRAFIK_LA) and Instagram (@TRAFIK_LA)!

We usually don’t mess with the IE, but when there is a race to be won and money on the line, the TRAFIK Team is there. Load up the car, we’re going to Pomona! This past weekend the fellas from Mobbin Mondays hosted another great event, a 4 lap Criterium around a park-like course with an after party at Gallery 611.
When we pulled into the spot we knew it was going to be a tough day. The Crit started with a pretty large hill and the finish line was at the top. Racers from all over came to this one, about 50 riders in all, time to bring the A-game.
It was a puke filled afternoon. We lost count of how many dudes had their nice jerseys ruined by Energy Goo vomit. It takes a certain skill set to puke and continue to ride your bike. Congrats to all the guys who accomplished that.
The LA contingent came with the desire to win, and pulled off an upset victory on the IE’s home turf. Crossing the line together for 1st and 2nd was Ivan “The Terrible” Delgado and Steven “New York” Bonilla. They were followed by Pomona local Alex Barcenas in 3rd. 1st place under 18 went to Willis “Henry’s Brother” Grijalva, congrats Lil’ Homie!

Yesterday was one hella busy Sunday for LA cyclists. All day long we had to enjoyment of riding the city streets for miles without a car in sight – just one huge cluster fuck of bikes (it can be a good or bad thing). Mad props to CicLAvia for making that happen yet again. But amidst all the commotion and F.U.N…..
…there was serious competition. Yesterday was the last race for the Fortune 700 Summer Race series which, very much like the Tour de France, consists of several stages; ranging from time-trials, to mountainous climbing, to endurance, and finally a Criterium.
The Crit was based in the much favored part of Chinatown where many races have been held. The winner of the crit was our homie N.Y. from El Maestro’s Race Team and G.S.S.
But we gotta give credit where credit is due. Felipe Castillo raced in each series and scored big. His efforts have put him at the top of the food chain, crushing the competition with his overall G.C. score. Felipe also rides for El Maestro’s Race Team and G.S.S.
Although the official results haven’t been posted. Felipe’s Strava records should speak for themselves. Team Maestro’s and G.S.S. should be going home with the Sprinter Jersey, KOM Jersey, and the highly sought after Yellow Jersey.
Great work guys!
