Merry Christmas from the TRAFIK Crew! Let’s hope Santa gave you that new frame you wanted. We’re just kicking back, sippin’ on some gin, waiting for Santa to come through with the Dura-Ace hubs.
This Sunday, Kushtown Society and Willo have teamed up with a bunch of awesome sponsors to throw the last great fixed gear race of 2013! The KUSTOWN HOLIDAY SCRATCH RACE! SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22nd! TOMORROW! 8PM.
This is a unique race, the first time we’ve heard of a scratch race being thrown in the street and not in a velo. Basically, the entire group of racers circle around Shatto park in K-town, the last person to cross the finish line on each lap is eliminated. So if there are 50 racers, they will be doing 50 laps, until the last man (or woman) is left standing. This is a thinking man’s race, you don’t have to beat everyone, just don’t be last. Oh, and FIXED GEAR ONLY! Sorry roadies.
This is going to be an ill holiday event, with premium lap give-a-ways, spectators prizes, high-grade THC, yo momma, Latino Santa, and tons of other surprises.
Kushtown is asking for a $10 donation to race in order to support the medical bills of local racer Edgar “Willo” Juarez, who was involved in an accident in 2013 and is still paying. If you don’t have the funds, that cool, no one will be turned away.
Thanks to all the sponsors who made this event possible:
Unknown Bike Company
El Maestro Bicycle Shop
God & Famous
The Seventh Letter
Crank La Clothing
See you all at 8pm tomorrow!
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.
