Ballerina Black, this what I would have in my headphones for LOG lll this Sunday. Driving music to get you up those climbs. The kind of music that gets you moving around ever corner, picking the correct line through Traffic without even thinking about it. The kind of music that we are proud to have featured on TL&R. Relentless and thought provoking. Ballerina Black, get some here! Don’t forget 6/21/11, get your copy, so you can see how Ballerina Black makes us move!
Yanco is the Homie. He makes some of the best hats to wear under helmets in the Business, and look great when not wearing a helmet.
So stylish, very functional. I have a huge collection of Yanco Caps, and recently have been stocking up on the Tracko x Yanco Colab caps.
That’s right, one of our riders has a colab going on with one of our Sponsors! That’s how we do it here in LA, we all work together to make this a huge community. Think Global, work Local! Thanks to Yanco for suppling the goods to keep our head covered! Be sure to check out what other soft goods Yanco has got for guys. Great stuff made here in LA by a solid rider.
