Chrome has set up shop in LA! Orange 20 is hosting a Chrome pop-up shop at their gallery space at 4357 Melrose, right next to the bike shop. Chrome will be here for the next month, offering deals on bags, shoes, and clothes and throwing a bunch of events you should get involved in. On their opening night they hosted a #FOORACE thrown by Alvin from Mobbin Mondays. Although the weather was shitty, riders came out to hustle. Check the pics below. Congrats to the podium: 1st HERN, 2nd DEG, 3rd ANGEL. Check out the TRAFIKPIX FLICKR for more pics…
The Chrome shop will only be open for the month, so make sure to stop by. The art exhibit on the inside has some dope photo work by Van Styles and a huge map of LA that you can become a part of. Just snap a photo on Instagram of one of your favorite chill spots in LA and tag it #WRENCHED_LA and they will pin your photo to the wall.
Art Crank in LA was a huge success, held this year at Space15Twenty in Hollywood. It was a night filled with beer, amazing art, and bikes. Sounds like something you would go to right? The TRAFIK crew was out there and @trikxpikx1 caught some shots of the poster art and afterparty, check the TRAFIKPIX FLIKR for more pics.

Behind the scenes at the shoot for the new Boombotix X TRAFIK video for our new product, the Sugimon REX. It was an awesome night of racing and filming in Los Angeles under a full moon.

Don’t miss the big race in Pomona this Saturday from 1-5pm or you will miss out. No gears, No brakes mixed with climbing, switchbacks and a very technical decent should make for a good race. And it promises to be a spectator friendly event, so bring out the cooler! See you there.

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.
