We’ve seen a lot of new kids out on rides recently, and we’ve helped a bunch with flats. If you are new to the game, check out this video from Pure Fix TV that breaks down the essential tools you need to carry with you when out riding. The homie George is a local rider and expert mechanic, you might recognize him from To Live & Ride in L.A.
We would also add a patch kit, some cash, and a CO2 inflator (smaller and stronger than a handpump). Ride safe.
Every year at this time, Las Vegas becomes the focus of the Bike Universe for INTERBIKE, the end all, be all of bike conventions. And you know what that means…masses of cyclists leaving home to test their strength and endurance against riders from across the globe. This year TRAFIK and Jetforce are proud to present THE KING OF VEGAS RACE!
Thursday, September 20th, 10pm
START & FINISH at the Sands Expo Center (Interbike)
Las Vegas, Nevada
Fixed & Road – Men & Women’s Divisions
FREE TO ENTER
The title of KING & QUEEN of Vegas will be given to the 1st Male and 1st Female who cross the line and present their completed manifest, regardless of bike type. They will split the CASH PRIZE!
1st Fixed (Men’s & Women’s) wins a $50 BONUS! Word.
This will be a challenging yet fun race through the streets and back alleys of Las Vegas. Get ready to hit some popular spots, out of the way stretches and the fabulous Las Vegas Strip. Jetforce won the race last year and, by tradition, has designed a course worthy of the crown.
The checkpoints will be announced before the start. Racers must return to the finish with each checkpoint marked off their manifest in order to place. There is no set route. Checkpoints will be manned by race marshals. A commemorative manifest/map will be provided to each racer, but they are limited so get there early.

Our friend Addison Zawada is a bike renaissance man. He’s a respected FGFS rider, fixed gear street racer, and BMX rider. Keep an eye out for this guy! Great video!
Fixed Gear is Global, and the homies in Sibera, Russia are catching on. Check out the whip skid gone wrong at 2:10.
TRAFIK spent our Labor Day weekend chillin at the Lord of Griffith IV race in Griffith Park. Great day, hot as fu*k . The 105 guys and girls who competed in this race really had their work cut out for them. Three killer laps of the park, which means three killer climbs and descents. Fixed gear only – you know how is goes.
Check out all the pics on TRAFIK’s FLICKR page, we’ve been shooting photos at races for the past couple years, lots of good stuff on our FLICKR.
