Theres so many sick clips in this. Sick to see joe still rocking the 700c Dont Limit Me tee even if hes on 26′. And was that Corey back on 7′s?
So epic. Joe has crazy bike control on that new bike.
Matt Spencer pulling out his bag of tricks for Collared Shirt Krew and it is killer. I am really digging that nollie X up at Ghetto…that was sooo clean. Matt still holding true to the 7s and you gotta give the man respect for that alone! Beastly.
Let it be noted that this was a solid 2 years ago. March 13, 2010 at Bixby Park (AKA Chery Park) to be exact. Many of the names that we all know today are riding at this comp. There were few competitions back in the early days of fixed gear freestyle so this one was important. We see many of the tricks that these riders have more than mastered today and they continue to push the game. Riders like Jakob Antone Santos, Matt Spencer, Marwin Ou, Sean Coats, Congo, and many more.
As you could probably tell the bikes were still more reminiscent of track bikes with positive bottom brackets, straight top tubes, and 700c wheels (you even see some cats with 650s in the front). All has changed now with sloping top tubes, tighter geometry, wider bars, better bar spin clearance, and 26″ wheels (there is even talk about 24″ wheels).
Enjoy the video, and behold the progress that this sport has achieved.
I’m also glad to be on camera at 6:18 on the stage if you care (gray shirt with red and gray pants).
