Sierra in Love

Here's a video of some members of the Manila Fixed Gear and WeFXD, collectively known as TheDirtyDozen.

Feature: Marvi's Fixum Machina

Marvi Gatus sent me pictures of his Ave Maldea bike in Singapore four weeks ago and, guess what, I'm only posting it now. Ha.

He spent his vacation home here in the Philippines three weeks ago, joined the Pusakalye 7 Master Class two weeks ago, then joined us for the 70 kilometer Jala-Jala loop last Saturday. Now that's a two-week vacation well spent.

Still, Marvi should have brought this home with him. I would love to see this build in person.

Check out more pictures and complete bike check after the jump.

Portrait: Kalki and the Ultraman Tags

Here's Kalki wearing the Ultraman Tags, right before the 2nd Ultraman Challenge held last June 5.

Come out on July 3, win the challenge, strip the tags from Sok, and wear it proud for a month. We know you want it.

Feature Friday: Orville's Mean Green

You really shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

At first glance, it looks like your run-of-the-mill built bike you get from your local dealer. But if you look at it closely you'd really appreciate how every part of this bike complements each other, not just by looks, but also of quality.

The stealthy military green paint on this really does its job, hiding a gold mine in plain sight.

This is definitely in my list of my favorite Ave Maldea frames built-up.

Feature Friday: Denver's Dodici Gara

It's been over a month since our friend Denver has gone back to Korea, and this post was supposed to be up right after he boarded the plane (I know, I'm busy. Don't judge me.)

A couple of points why I like this build:
  • It's super light
  • Great parts
  • It's a daily commuter
  • Geometry's just right
  • That color
Denver actually focused more on function over form. It just happened to look good.
