One of the items on our Christmas list was a new FRAME and I think Santa might have come early this year. The friendly people over at THRONE have just come out with a brand new fixed gear frame, the SUPREME LO and it looks like we’ll be able to get our hands on one for a test ride.
The SUPREME LO is a completely re-designed frame from the bottom up. To start with, THRONE used 6061-T6 (tempered) aluminum for the frame which is hydro-formed, not stamped. Had to look it up on Wiki, but this is a high-end process which creates a stronger, more durable bike. They also started from scratch with the geometry. They listened to riders who wanted a high performance bike that is aggressive and responsive, so they designed the SUPREME LO as a true track pursuit frame.
Finish it off with polished welds and some nice paint jobs, especially their LIMITED GOLD EDITION, and you have yourselves another street champ.
We’ve seen a bunch of riders rocking THRONE bikes around LA, which makes sense since the company is based out of here. It’s good to see local companies growing and listening to rider feedback when they release new products. So go on over and check out their website HERE to get a look at the SUPREME LO and their other frame, the TRACK LORD II. Come back once we have put some miles on the new frame for a full review.

It finally rained in LA and while everyone was inside staying dry this guy was flying down a wet mountain, backwards!
FixieCross & FixieCrit went down in Los Angeles last Saturday and racers from all over made it out to LA Historic China Town Park to compete. It was a major CX event thrown by So-Cal Cross, they were nice enough to let the fixed gear riders on the course after the Pro’s. Fixed gear cyclocross may not be very well known, but it is hilarious. Most of the racers had never raced fixed gear on a course like this and everyone had their own guess of what was the best gear ratio. Some were doing nothing but spinning while others were stuck on a heavy gear that kept them from going up and over the bridge and maneuvering at slow speeds in dirt. Needless to say it was one of the spectators favorite events of the night and we hope to see more FixieCross events in the future.
The Crit was a short course around Chinatown that got off to a fast start and left many of the racers behind with no hope of catching up. Those in the front pack included riders from Track Hard, Mobin Mondays, Emortal and dog tag winner Willo from Unknown Bikes, but control was in the hands of the large GSS team who protected a breakaway and worked together to come in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Check the TRAFIK Flickr for more pics.
Everyone knows that BOOMBOTIX makes the best bluetooth speakers that really BUMP! TRAFIK had the chance to create our own custom BOOMBOTIX with two different faceplates so you can switch up the design depending on your mood. Los Angeles street artist LEEN designed the first faceplate with his popular SUGIMON character and Purple colorway, while the second faceplate has the TRAFIK logo in minimal Black and White. The SUGIMON REX also comes with custom belt clips in purple and B/W colorways.
Music is the center of every group ride or kick-back and this speaker is always on deck. You never need to buy batteries for it, it’s basically weather proof, you can use it to answer your phone, and we’ve even used it as a megaphone at races. No shit. It does all that…And no WIRES!
So head on over to the TRAFIK SHOP where you can pick up a SUGIMON REX and a whole bunch of other presents for the fixed-gear rider on your Christmas list. The SUGIMON REX is a limited printing and once they are sold out, that’s it man. Get on it.
Each SUGIMON REX comes with:
- SUGIMON Faceplate and Belt Clip
- TRAFIK Faceplate and Belt Clip
- Mini stereo cable
- USB charging cable
- TRAFIK bike decals
- SUGIMON cell stickers
- A lot of BASS
- Street cred
