What got me started.


I can still remember the moment roughly three years ago. These were the first few fixed gear videos that surfaced back in the day. Colin riding a steel frame, Keo with his beautiful barspins. Even spotted Yim with a long hair-do! It somehow made me wanna ride a bike & accomplish something. I didn’t know anything about horizontal dropouts or fixed hubs, drop bars, toe straps or what so ever. I got so excited, I got Idris stoked on setting up as well! All I wanted to do was just go out there and ride. It got me excited to the max the first time I bought myself a bike. It didn’t matter if it was a road bike with gears and brakes, even a conversion. I don’t know about you guys but when you’re out there riding, you just feel free. And nothing beats the feeling of riding on a good day with great company of friends.

To this day, I thank the peeps from MASH & Macaframa for inspiring me to ride & push myself hard.
