Media black out. . For the next ten days, dead Fred and I will be offline. We will be spending some time with family on our summer vacation. I'll see you all in a bit.
BIKE CHECK! On this episode of #bikecheck , we take a look at a #custom #sworks epic. A speed demon of a full suspension #mtb . Running @rovalcomponents #carbonfiber wheels , a @iamspecialized_mtb #carbon frame , @rockshox brain suspension and @srammtb #srameagle components; this is a build anyone would dool over. Follow me as we walk through every detail. Click the link in my profile to this beauty of a build.
Bike Check! A brand new #bikecheck video is up on my @youtube page! This time we drool over a 2018 #sworks tarmac running @rideshimano #duraace Di2. I’ll put a temporary link in my profile.

This is dead Fred. If you've ever ridden with me, then you've met and ridden with him. He's a G. He's done double centuries, epic mtb rides and been my wing man more than once. #copilot
Sunday morning in the sun. . This mornings ride is dedicated to sunscreen and friends...I only remembered one. . I had the pleasure of spending this morning on mellow climbs through my backyard of #palosverdes . 11 year old #cycling prodigy David and his father Mikko ( @miks08 ) joined me and we later met up with our friend and mechanic Alejandro ( @jandryayala5520 ) It got hot quick but a playful 20miles/2000 feet got us back to the shop in time for coffee in the A/C before I opened up. . I also decided to experiment with an idea for a potential web series I'm calling ' ride along ' which is exactly what it sounds like. I'll put a temporary link I'm my bio. If you like it, please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my new YouTube channel. This series, my product reviews and bike build walk through videos will continue to grow over the coming weeks and months, so get stoked!! . . . . #socal #bikes #bikelife #sworks #baaw #roadslikethese #roadbike #fromwhereiride #iamspecialized #southbay #southerncalifornia #visitcalifornia #hawkracing #ambador #endureandenjoy365 #nowhelmet #sbla #outsideisfree
Memory lane. The Ventura river bike trail leads from the #venturapier east into the hills of #Ojai running directly behind the college I attended . ( Brooks institute of photography) . The campus sits abandoned as the private school has since folded. The city itself, a tiny collection of towns making up thousands of memories of my young adult life. I've taken countless portraits on this bridge as part of work assignments, I sat on this bridge more than once contemplating my life choices and now, I've ridden my bike across it on a #bikepacking adventure with my friends. Life, like the fundamentals of cycling, comes full circle. . . . . . #trailslikethese #roadslikethese #fromwhereiride #bikecamping #bikelife #bike #cyclinglife #cyclist #cycling #venturarivertrail #visitcalifornia #nowhelmet #hawkracing #pearlizumi #ambador #endureandenjoy365 #outsideisfree #ventura #socal
I recently put together a piece for @pearlizumiofficial addressing the mindset and mental barriers associated with an ultra cycle endeavor. 214 miles in one day. LA to Santa Barbara and back. Follow the temporary link in my profile or search my name on the #pearlizumi website. Special thanks to the legend @joshualawton for the support on this adventure. . . . . . #bike #bikelife #bikeporn #cyclinglife #cyclist #cycling #ambador #endureandenjoy365 #adventure #socal #southbay #visitcalifornia #fromwhereiride #roadslikethese #outsideisfree #nowhelmet #hawkracing #health #westside
Long rides down empty country roads , fueld by whiskey and red bull . Where decisions are made based on available daylight hours and good trees for hanging hammoks. #summer #bikepacking 📸 @markpopovich

I need a whole lot more of this in my life. This cushy #bikelife takes A LOT of hard work. Anyone who also works in the industry knows. Especially on the smaller shop level . You're working directly with so many people with so many specific wants and needs it's actually very stressful. Especially on the mechanic side. Did I torque that bolt? The rider could die. Did I order the right part? It's $11k. Over and over and over again. I have dreams of this, daily. I wake up to 2am texts about parts, routes, etc. I can't go anywhere with out being approached by someone who knows me...and has a million bike questions. Don't get me wrong, I totally and completely love the life I've built for myself but just like everyone else, I need a fuggin break every now and again. It's a fine line you have to walk making your passion your career. . . . . . #bikecamping #bikepacking #getlost #outsideisfree #camping #summer #bike #cyclinglife #cycling #ridejahbike #fromwhereiride
