Ok this is taking fakie riding to a new level. Mosher was trying this out at T.O. Track Tricks here in Toronto on Tuesday and it was working out pretty good. Video footage I have been told will be available soon.Here's another shot from the same night.

Torey has just launched his new blog called WRAHW (pronounced RAW!!!) and it's awesome. All about the gritty real side of fixed gear freestyle. There is already a great interview up with Tyler Johnson as well as some of Torey's other thoughts on the sport. Head over now and check it out here.Here's Torey trying a frame grind of some sort? Keepin' it real!

Seattle Summer Edit

Here's a new fantastic edit out of Seattle by Chris "The Butcher" Clappe. This is probably one of the most entertaining web videos I've seen in quite a while. Great job guys. Also keep an eye out for this whole crew to be featured in The Revival.
Spotted at Zlog

Tyler Johnson

Spotted some great pics of Tyler Johnson over at the Bootleg Sessions Blog. Tyler is one of the great riders who will be featured in upcoming Revival video that we're currently working on.

No Cassettes Premier

No Cassettes is premiering in San Diego on August 1st so if you're in town check it out. If not pre-order the video here. Also look for some clips of our boy Tom Mosher crushing it as usual.

Loop Magazine

Our boy Torey got some coverage in the latest issue of Loop Magazine out of Japan. The magazine looks really awesome and I'm definitely going to try and track down a copy for myself, maybe you should as well.

Torey on The Take

Torey just got hooked up with The Take. Here are some pictures of his prototype that he'll be testing out over the next little while. The bike looks fantastic. While you're here you can check out a new video of Torey putting in work on some nose manual skills.

Down and Out

So our good friend and western Canadian sales rep, Ryan is out of commission for a while. I know what you're thinking, did he take a spill on his bike? No my friends this is what happens when you decide to trip over a soccer ball. Ouch! This is apparently Ryan's first broken bone but at least he did it in style and is the proud owner of a plate and two screws that will be supporting him for the rest of his life. I can say from personal experience that rehabbing from surgery like that sucks so I would like to send my best wishes to Ryan and hope he has a speedy recovery.

Tom Mosher Grindin'

Mosher just put out a 100% grind video! Tom has been running these mini pegs on in bike for a few weeks now and it looks like he's pretty much learned every grind you can possibly do. The Smith grind is epic!

No Cassettes

My apologies to Chris Fonseca who e-mailed me about this a few days ago and I totally forgot about posting it until right now. Get a copy of No Cassettes, featuring our boy Tom Mosher, and possibly win a SE/DC PK Ripper!

Rose City Fixed Book Release

This looks like it's going to be an awesome evening so if you're anywhere near Portland Oregon I suggest you make it out and win some Skitch t-shirts.

GOrilla in Paris

Here's the final edit of Wonka's trip to Paris with GOrilla bikes. Some seriously impressive lines in here especially the one handed wheelies through tight gaps.

Duncan has been riding hard in Montreal over the past little while and last I heard he's back out on the streets working as a messenger again. This wasn't a delivery but it sure shows some creative carrying skills for his new dinning room set.

Come Out and Play at The Warriors Race!

Best promo trailer for a race, ever!!! If you are even remotely near Vancouver at the beginning of September you have to go, it is going to be epic.

Wonka Tailwhip?

Anima D'Acciaio Trailer

Here is our boy Wonka in a trailer for a film about Ciocc and the GOrilla frame that he has been riding. The film looks at legendary Italian Frame Builder Giovanni Pelizzoli aka "Ciocc" and his views on the changes and progressions in cycling. The film is currently touring on the Bicycle Film Festival and judging from the trailer it looks quite impressive. I'll be sure to check it out in August when the BFF's arrive here in Toronto.

Wonka Six Set

Here is a really cool sequence by Austin Paz of Wonka 180ing a six stair set in NYC.

July Future Tense

Future Tense happened in Seattle last Friday and it looks like the action was awesome. We here at Skitch helped sponsor this months event and have to thank Zach for throwing such an outstanding event; we wish we could have been there. Here are a few photos from the Future Tense Flickr Pool.

Wonka and Puckett BFF Edit

Chris Wielk put together an edit of our boy Wonka shredding with Eric Puckett in Queens during the Bicycle Film Fest in NYC. The riding is great but I think they should have renamed the edit to "Bunnyhop Barspin Tutorial." These two have that trick so dialed that they can throw it over anything it seems.

Peel Sessions in the New York Times

Peel Sessions got a write up in the New York Times. Our boys Torey and Wonka are both present in the Audio Slideshow and the Article is also a great read. I have got to give huge props to John Prolly for pushing this sport so far. It's sites like his and personality like his that is really defining our sport and making sure that fixed gear freestyle is seen in a good light by both the fixed gear community as well as the general public. Great job John!

Wonka X Peel Sessions X Andrew Temkin

It looks like Wonka had a good time at this weeks Peel Sessions in Brooklyn New York. Thankfully Andrew Temkin was there to capture some of the action. Wonka I think has the biggest boost of anyone on a fixed gear, unbelievable.

The video features a whole cast of amazing riders and includes Skitch team rider Tom Mosher. This is the only place to see Mosher slide Hub Hideout in San Francisco and if that isn't enough reason to buy this dvd I don't know what is. Get your copy today!

Tyler Johnson's Bike Check or Wreck?

Wayne just sent me a link to this video of Tyler Johnson going through all the parts he's busted while riding. I'm amazed that frame even lasted as long as it did. Tyler can be seen in our upcoming Revival video.

Seattle Summer

Zach put together an edit for the Zlog Blog and it looks awesome. All these dudes will be appearing in the Revival video that we are currently working on. The west coast is always doing it up with style.

New Hfwido Web Video

Torey has been working on this web edit for a while now and it has some serious bangers in it. Very very impressive. Some of these lines are so technical while others are just burly. The 9 stair gap at the Brooklyn Banks is unbelievable. Incredible job Torey. You can see Torey in the upcoming Revival video as well as Death Pedal 2.

Welcome To The Team Wonka

We would like to announce that we have a new team rider here at Skitch and I'm sure most of you already know all about him. Wonka is currently pushing the sport of fixed gear riding to new and uncharted levels. You can barely look at a fixed gear website without finding pictures and videos of the kid plastered everywhere. One of the hardest and most aggressive riders out there, it is a privilege to have him on board to join the rest of our team. You can expect to see Wonka in the upcoming Revival project along with many web videos that you'll be able to catch here at the Skitch blog. Welcome to the team Wonka.

Wonka's latest web edit for Gorilla Bikes.

Mosher's New Cutter

Mosher just got his Gen3 Volume Cutter in glow in the dark green. He's also rocking the new Fu Manchu Fork and it looks awesome. One new addition is his 2" mini pegs. I've been resisting this idea for a long time but who's to stand in the way of progression? It will be cool to see what tricks Mosher is able to come up with on those things.

A Murder of Couriers Trailer 2

The second trailer for the Murder of Couriers project has dropped and it looks like Vancouver is holding it down as always. Great work guys, I can't wait to see this.

Torey Bunnyhop Barspins

Torey is spending the summer back in his home in Georgia but don't expect that to slow him down at all. Here's a video of him dialing in his bunnyhop barspins. Looking good there dude!

The Revival presents Keep On Keepin' On

THE REVIVAL/KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON from morehartfilms on Vimeo.

With the fallout of what was supposed to be The Revival tour last month, Wayne has taken it upon himself to put together a precurser to the Revival video. The video will be completed in early November and is title The Revival presents Keep On Keepin' On. The riders in this video are based both in Seattle and Vancouver. The video documents the contrast in styles while also showing the most progressive riding in both places. Keep your eye here on the Skitch blog for more info and trailers coming soon.

A big thank you goes out to Super Champion, Red Bull, Strike Cycles, Fixed Mag and Zlog for all their support.
