  • Salsa Mukluk Ti Fat Bike

    MJ5L2537

    If there’s one thing that makes me homesick, it’s seeing a happy bike like this Salsa Mukluk Ti out in its natural habitat. I may have sold my fat bike a while back, but that doesn’t mean I’m already scheming to build another in the future. It probably won’t be as blingin’ as this one, but seeing this Mukluk sure is inspiring.

    XTR bits, brakes and rotors, MRP carbon fork and a set of Hope Fatsno hubs help to step-up an already outstanding rig. Big ups to Cycles In Life on the upgrades!

  • best ever commercial


    Kyle Burroughs, another good homie from Vermont, has been working on a new project showcasing the skate scene back home titled Best Ever. I truly believe that it’ll be the best ever too…because what’s better than watching a video of all your best friends skating? Here’s Kyle’s second commercial for the video, hopefully dropping soon.

  • Monster Mash IV – Burlington, Vermont

    A couple of my best buds and co-conspirators back in Vermont are putting on the 4th (nearly) annual Monster Mash race. Being semi-homesick and nostalgic towards Burlington, my home of seven years, seeing the invite to the race this morning has already made my day. Even though I won’t be able to make it as I’m still in Shanghai, I’ll definitely be there in spirit and hope to follow along via Snapchat/Instagram. Anyway, enough about how I miss these guys and good ‘ole VT…here are the vitals:

    All hallows gather on the eve of the eve. After a year on the lam MONSTER MASH is back! And back with a VENGEANCE. 

    Meet: 30 Bright St. in the shadows of the loading docks
    Registration: 6pm – 7pm
    Race: 7:15pm
    Finish and after party @ Artsriot
    $5 or $20
    (Wear a costume)

    RSVP on Facebook

    If you’ve ridden this race in the past you may be familiar with the AlleyCat format we have adhered to. This year we promise you some of the same with a few twists lurking in the shadows. Monster Mash IV will be more about the trick and the treat. Don’t make any assumptions; you won’t know what’s coming around the corner.

    Registration will begin at 6pm with a mass start just after 7pm. Bring $5 to race or $13 if you want a t-shirt and poster. We’re not gonna turn anyone away, but the entry fee will help cover costs of the race, treats and prizes for all. Oh, and there will be an after party at Artsriot with prizes awarded for all your favorite categories. 

    Lets be real, wear an awesome costume. It’s going to be dark and scary, so bring a light, front and rear if you got ’em. A lock is not necessary during the race unless you’re worried about leaving your bike un attended for a short period of time, however you may want to have one at the end of the race. We will have a car at the start, and can shuttle your lock and other nicknacks to the end for you. 

    MARK THE DATE IN YOUR LITTLE BLACK BOOK, INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, AND GET READY TO RIDE N RACE.

    If you’ve come out in the past, you know you’re in for a good time. Check out some photos and whatnot from past years here: Monster Mash Archives

  • MAGENTA Skateboards: Crossing the Perth Dimension


    Magenta Skateboards never disappoints. Just like the TCB and MASH guys get my hyped to ride, the Magenta videos always make me want to skate. Luckily, that’s exactly what I’m about to go do.

  • TCB Courier Celebrates 5 Years by MASH SF


    The guys at TCB Courier just celebrated 5 years of business in San Francisco and MASH SF made this rippin’ video to celebrate. Watching this made me that much more excited to rip my track bike around today. Congrats on the 5 years guys!
