It’s that time of year again ARTCRANK LAX will feature hand-made, bike-inspire posters created by the best Street Artists LA has to offer. This year ARTCRANK invited our in-house designer LEEN to be a part of the event, creating a remarkable design inspired by his latest Sugimon Attack water bottle. These Limited Edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each. That’s a pretty fair price to lace up your pad with some original art from LA’s finest.
Come hang out with the TRAFIK crew and have a beer with us courtesy of Widmer Brothers Brewing. Take home some original bicycle-inspired poster artwork from local artists including SWANK ONE, CACHE, SEIZER and EYEONE.
SWANK ONE – A true graf OG, Swank has been repping Wolfpack for years and was the designer behind the sick cover art for the To Live & Ride in LA DVD. He is premiering a new piece at Artcrank that really jumps off the page at you. For realz 3D, it even comes with old skool glasses.
EYEONE – If you have ridden anywhere around LA, you’ve seen some of Eyeone’s mural collab’s with CACHE. His immediately recognizable characters have been part of this city for awhile. Now make it part of your apartment.
It’s going off TOMORROW, Saturday Nov. 9th at Space 15 Twenty, 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood. See you there!
The annual LOG race took place over the weekend in beautiful Griffith Park. Although the man tried to keep it down the race went off. Rangers blocked the road during the first lap but were eventually overrun by riders. It was a beautiful day to sit in a fold-out chair and watch a bunch of crazy f**ks battle it out, brakeless, on the mountain. The winners of this years LOG are:
1st Tyler Coplea (State Bike) center, 2nd Alex Barcenas (Mobbin Mondays) left , 3rd Michael Dziedzic (State Bike) right.
Check out the TRAFIK FLICKR PAGE for all the photos and maybe you can pick yourself out. Thanks to Oscar from .elohssa for jumping on the back of the sketch Ruckus with that drunk dude to get us some shots.

This past Sunday Engine No. 11 hosted a crit race in the LBC as a benefit for Luis Avina who was recently injured. The race brought out some of the toughest riders in Los Angeles to put it down and help out the homie. It was great to see so many familiar faces and new ones come together to support a rider down. With State Champions and alley cat competitors alongside each other, this was by far one of the cleanest races in LA thus far.
Roadies went first. It was a good solid group leading the pack including some of our riders from GSS: Felipe Castillo and Anthony Zelaya, the 16 year-old beast. The sun was going down when the fixed gear group took the course with at least 35+ racers. It was for sure a fast paced race. In the first lap riders were already getting dropped by the front pack trying to make a breakaway. With just 3 laps in GSS team member NeuYork got a flat, but thanks to quick action by his teammates he was able to swap out wheels allowing him to continue the race and place a solid 3rd place.
Tony Z was racing smart and made his move on the final lap. Check out the video below for Tony’s Go Pro and peep the strategy. As he sprinted to the finish line, he just barely passed Alvin Escajeda from Mobbin Mondays/CNBC who finished 2nd place overall. Congrats Tony! Geat race. Great vibe. Great Sunday night with friends.
