Bike Expo 2011

Just in off the twitter feed.  It was awesome to be apart of this event.  I don't know were the filmer was all day, but our flatland demo was slightly larger than the box demo.  Anyway enjoy watchin dirty spin for the masses.

Christmas In The Trap

I should've dropped this like 4 days ago.  Smoke Dza released SweetBabyKushedGod on Christmas Day.  Then he followed up by releasing 'Christmas in the Trap'.   I'm been blasting SWV for the last couple of days myself.  If you want it click here SweetBabyKushGod and make sure you have a fatty ready.

Flatland Manifesto: Effraim Catlow interview

Right about a year ago I met Effraim in Studio City Ca. He was escaping his winter/rain season.  Awesome guy, and dude has mad tricks.  I wanted to put this up cause I still don't know anyone doing g-string to backwards half-packer.

Friday, December 9, 2011


The one thing I like about this time of the season is the music that comes out right before the new year.  Last year we got hit in the face with Kanye West's album and this year we get The Roots newest studio release Undun.

I gotta tell you, that this is probably there best work put together.  I feel a little dark tones in the music, but overall it is diffidently an album you must have.  So download it or buy it on iTunes, you wont be disappointed.

Flyer Update

With a little over a month left, One Love Jam is already looking like it will be the biggest event of the year.  Here is an updated flyer, also we would like to say a big thanks to all of our sponsors and supporters. We out here!

Mauth Ka Kuan

Back in August I witnesses a bunch of drunk guys riding bicycles in a smaller version of 'Well of Death' they called it the 'Whiskeydrome'.  This looks like something serious.  Check out how close one of the guys get to the edge.

Monday, December 5, 2011


Why just ride one aspect of BMX, never limit yourself, because you never know what doors you might open.  They don't call it freestylin' for nothing.

Posse Up: Video Contest

A new concept on video contest.  Posse Up coming soon.  Rep your city and scene....Posse Up!
Posse UP Video Contest


I have been a Wu-Head since day one.  I remember my homie Fresh picking up 'Protect yo Neck' on one of his summer visits to NYC.  This track feels like that ole Wu shit. BONG!

Friday, December 2, 2011


The other day while at the movies, I saw a trailer for Premium Rush, while my eye where focus on this action pack movie, I started to remember a movie similar to this from the 80's called Quicksilver.  Living in the bay you see hundreds of fixies, but I never saw any of them do this.

Brand Names

S/O the sponsors that didnt fit on the flyer
Primo,Sidual,Game of Bike
Some people just can't get facts straight.  One Love Jam has not been renamed to 'Zuma Jam', One Love Jam has no ties with the old Hollywood Jam that were held at Zuma Beach, even though we like to ride with our Hollyhood homies there, this is not there event.

One Love Jam is a brand name.  Brand names mean something.  Customers rely on them to know what they're getting.  Changing the name and information to make it fit how you feel is not right, it's wrong.  The information is very clear and has been floating around the web for a month.  One Love is a brand name please do not forget this.

Because of this I will once again repost all the info on here again.  I will post the press release which has been posted to Ride BMX  for almost a month on here also.

Dear Riders,

This is an open invitation to the 2nd Annual One Love Jam . . . held at Zuma Beach, in Malibu on January 14th, 2012!

Zuma Beach has history and is where most of the famous Hollywood Jams were held. 

This year's One Love Jam will be holding its first bunny-hop contest and is offering a $300 cash prize to the rider with the highest hop.  

This is not just a flatland jam, this is a BMX jam.  Last year's jam was one of the biggest jams since the Intrikt and Hollywood Jams.  Riders from all over North America came to have fun on bikes.  Let's see what this year brings.

For more info please join us on our Facebook page and you can also follow One Love BMX on Twitter!/OneLoveBMX

Bring your hops and a good beach chair.  See you soon.

Pralex: Uncensored

If you haven’t heard of the infamous Team Pralex or their hipster founding fathers Prasheel Gopal and Alex Poirier, you either haven’t been hanging out at the swankiest of Ontario’s clubs, don’t ride flatland, or just don’t like cookies n cream.  Your loss.

A duo of fashion-conscious kids from the streets of Ontario have been making headway in the world of flat bmx as well as the international club scene.  When not downing Cuba Libre’s and Shirly Temples and grinding butts (not necessarily each others’) on the dancefloor, flatland homies Alex and Prasheel tear shit up on their flatland bikes and represent a rag-tag group of friends coined “Team Pralex.”

The warlords presiding over Team Pralex have agreed to an interview.  It is time to clear up the mysteries of Team Pralex, brakeless riding, unorthodox dance moves, Pralex underwear, and much more.

Shayne Khajehnoori: How old are you guys, where do you live, occupations?
Alex Poirier:  I am 23 years old, I live in Petrolia, Ontario, Canada, and I work at a GM dealership doing inventory stuff (aka, reading books, doing school work, surfing the internet).
Prasheel Gopal: Twenty seven.  The small boring town of Brantford, Ontario.  Mechanical engineer/product designer.

SK: During an average week, how many nights do you hit the clubs?
AP:  On average its probably somewhere around 1.7 nights a week.  Sometimes its two, and theres the odd long weekends that I go out three nights...When I am on vacation I try to go out every night, or at least get drunk everyday.  Most of the time I go out on either Friday or Saturday and take the other day off.  I work Monday-Friday 9-5 type job, so that keeps me busy during the week.
PG: Not as often as Alex. Just once every couple of weeks I guess, most usually when I meet up with Alex.

SK: Who is the better wing-man?  Who is the pussy-repellant?
AP:  I am definitely the better wing-man.  I have never cared about picking up broads at the bar, while Prasheel has definitely concerned himself with this.  If I ever needed Prasheel to be my wing-man he would be too busy in the corner wooing some girl talking her ear off.  That being said we've both been known to scare girls off too.
PG: lol@ the truth in Alex's response. Although I do recall multiple times that Alex has yelled at me to stop talking to girls, once because he didn't want to have to cab home alone, because he didn't want to the cab driver to think he was a loser...good times. 

SK: What is Team Pralex?  Who is part of it?  Do you have any weird initiation rites?
AP:  My mom coined the word Pralex, and we jokingly made a FB page out of it and then it got way out of hand with the blog, clothes, and just us being idiots.  We are definitely fully aware that it is dumb as hell.  I don't even know who is apart of it now.  The main guys are Prasheel, Mark Kuhlmann and myself.  Bo Wade is involved(?) although we don't get to see him as often as we like.  It's basically just guys we get along with really well, and love to party with.  Anyone can be apart of team Pralex, just come party with us and we'll force to become apart of it.
PG: Basically everything Alex said. It's just us and a few others that we enjoy riding and partying with. No weird initiations or anything.

SK: What is up with Team Pralex underwear?  Is it sold in stores?  Are you kicked out of Team Pralex if you do not show off your underwear at contests?
AP:  We made some underwear awhile ago, and to be honest, I think I am down to one pair, and rarely ever wear it at contest because I just never think of it.  We kick people off and add people to the team so often, I can't keep track of our reasonings.
PG: I guess the underwear is just sort of the pinnacle of ridiculousness in terms of team branding/apparel. Every company has shirts (and there's some "bike companies" that all they do is make shitty shirts), so we thought we'd do something else, and also not make it readily available. I can't keep track of how many times Terry Adams has bugged me to get in some Pralex undies.

SK: What does fashion mean to you?
AP:  Fashion means a lot to me actually.  At contests and riding in general I definitely have a very “hipster” look, as its comfortable and I also like the way it looks.  In everyday life I'm usually a little more dressed up, in button-down dress shirts and a blazer.  I follow way more fashion blogs than flatland blogs, I regularly read GQ, Vogue, and really enjoy shopping.  It goes a lot further then me looking like a hipster at contests.  I'd also like to squash the fact that I did not copy Matthias wearing skinny jeans, I started wearing them before I even knew he existed.  I straight up copied Travis Collier, haha.
PG: Not much, just whatever I'm comfortable in really. Like Alex, for work purposes, I'm generally a lot more dressed up than the cutoffs and (deep) v necks I wear while riding. That stuff just doesn't work in an office environment, although I do arrive to work in my spandex bike shorts.

SK: Why’d you take off the brakes, do you ever see them going back on?
AP:  I HATE working on my bike, and I always have trouble setting up brakes.  I've been brakeless for about two years now, and right now, I am planning on putting them back on this coming spring and I am really excited about it.  My contest placings have suffered a lot ever since I took off my brakes, but I've had a lot of fun, and it helped me get away from doing the same old stuff.  Now I feel like I'm stuck in a rut with no brakes, so I am going to put them on in the Spring, and see how I feel, but I predict I'll keep them on for at least 8 months or so.
PG: I took them off...8 or 9 years ago I think now.  I was just stuck in a rut of squeakers and side squeaks and all that type of stuff, so I originally took them off to motivate myself to learn some rolling stuff. I did put them on again every year or so, but I usually couldn't deal with them for more than a week. Doubt I'll ever really how to use them.

SK: Who gets laid most?
AP:  Prasheel and I are waiting for our marriage to get it on.  We both still have our v-cards and don't want to upset Jesus with premarital sex, hopefully that makes up for the whole gay marriage thing.
PG: No comment?

SK: Who is the Lil Wayne fan?
AP:  I liked Carter 3.  Prasheel made me listen to 12 hours of Lil Wayne straight one time.
PG: Best. Rapper. Alive.

SK: Worst U.S. state visited?
AP: Ohio.  Kentucky was pretty stupid too.
PG: Definitely Ohio.  Although I don't remember visiting Kentucky, so maybe it was so bad that I blocked it out of my memory. But in Ohio, a bum threatened my life over a hot dog, so yeah, pretty bad.

SK: Dubstep?
AP:  Hahaha, I don't really listen to much dubstep.  I listen to way more electro-house, techno, disco-house, dancehall, moombahton.  I like the occasional dubstep song, but two hours of it is far too much dubstep for me.
PG: All Weezy, all day.

SK: Will you come to Cali and smoke a blunt with the One Love Crew?
AP:  I don't really smoke the marijuana, but I will get plastered.  Honestly though I have been craving a road trip to Cali (will probably end up flying) but I really hope it happens in the next...Lets say 16 months.  I would like to just add that the One Love Crew kills it on twitter, keep it up!
PG: I don't smoke, but will definitely try to come out to Cali when I can.  I haven't been yet, and its on my to do list.

By the way, I just want to apologize to anyone that wasted their time reading this interview.

Sneaking n' Movies

October was declared as Black Movie Month.  This week movie, Hollywood Shuffle, directed by Robert Townsend.   I have to say, the satire and parody of negative stereotypes makes this one of my favorite flicks.  I give it a serious high five.   The Hollywood Black Film Festival will be held in LA from Oct 27-30th.

I Love The 80's

One of my all time favorite spoof tracks.  Roaches by Bobby Jimmy and the Critters.  Bobby Jimmy aka Russ Parr and his band made a few hits in the 80's mostly parody tracks like "one glove" which is about the late Mike Jackson.  This track is from Timex Social Club's "rumors".  Russ Parr is also credited for being one of the "posse" in N.W.A. first album N.W.A and the Posse

Flyer Update

As you can see we got some more love for you trifling m'fers. East County BMX, Animal, Kink, and Deco BMX have joined in for the cause.  And also we have a cash purse for the Bunny - Hop contest.  We will keep you posted. See you soon.

Been Around The World

Ok, I know I said I won't put up other web edits cause theres enough "blogs" doing it.  But this is another awesome skill that most modern riders can't or won't do, I guess cause most riders ride in such small areas.

Around the Worlds seem to be a dying technique , but a few guys keep it alive.  As we found out, up here in Norcal, Its more of  standard trick, and of course every one at One Love has embraced this style of riding cause our spots are huge.  

Brian Tunney is no stranger to this style of flow.  A few months ago he dropped some heavy links from this technique.  Sad-lander and emo rider Louis Orth filmed a short clip of Brian, which happens to be the same date of the One Love Jam and hipster rider Joe Temple birthday.  Enjoy.

The Trifling Tour Revisited

8000 miles.  7 states.  Coast to coast.  110 degree temperatures.  No A/C.  Trifling.

This past summer, despite any clear or logical thinking, myself, Darin Wright, and our good friend Antonio Marrache from Peru loaded up a 20-year-old Toyota and journeyed across the USA in search of good times and great sessions.

From L.A. to N.Y.C. to ATL and back, the One Love Crew shows once again, that we are no stranger to the epic road trip.  Subsisting on a diet of funyuns, donuts, cookies, and energy drinks, we blazed our trail, zig-zagging across the USA without a care in the world.

With our trunk filled to the brim with Primo, Deco, S&M, Revenge, Diversion, Innertwine, Flowstyle, and Quamen gear, we tore through the states reminiscent of a multi-cultural BMX Santa, passing out tires, pedals, bars, shirts, DVDs and other gifts to the BMX shredders we met along the way.

3 weeks later, we find ourselves back in Califonia, relieved to be home, and still glowing from the journey.

We made it.

Now here is a look at the Trifling Tour, straight off the iPhone...

Interview with Paula Callery

Paula is awesome. I ran into her again a couple weekends ago at the Van City Flat Jam, and shot some photos during our hung-over Sunday riding session. Here are the words that go with them...

Shayne Khajehnoori: Age, years riding?
Paula Callery: 28, 7 years

SK: East Coast or West Coast?
PC: West Coast, hands down.

SK: Brakes or brakeless?
PC: Brakeless. I have a front brake on my bike, but I don't do a single trick that involves braking. I like riding to my spot, and there's just too many steep hills around Vancouver and sketchy drivers to not have a brake. I was going through my shoes at an alarming rate when I first arrived in town, so the brake went on and my wallet is a bit fatter. But when it comes to flatland I prefer the style, smoothness and discipline that comes with riding brakeless.

SK: Front wheel or backwheel?
PC: Both are important. Right now I'm really into combos that go from front wheel to back wheel tricks, or vice versa.

SK: How did you get into flatland?
PC: I've always been active. I played hockey for 10 years growing up (in Canada), but eventually I out grew the league and needed to find something else to move on to. I also tried skateboarding when I was 15, but it never really felt right. Several years later my boyfriend at that time rode flatland and I was really attracted to it, it was definitely something I could get into. There was also something nostalgic about it. When I was much younger I used to go on epic bike rides with my brothers, on a single geared 18 inch BMX, it was difficult to keep up. When I was 8 I somehow came into possession of some type of road bike with faulty gears. I got tossed over the handle bars going downhill and landed on my forehead and somersaulted onto my back. I gashed my head open pretty good and there was blood everywhere. I wound up in the ER with a head full of sutures. Sometimes I laugh about how my passion for bikes came to be. Maybe it was the concussion? Anyways, after I was introduced to flatland in my 20's, through my ex boyfriend, I thought about taking it up for a few years before I finally built up a bike to ride. I've never looked back.

SK: More girls riding flat in the future? You think yes or no?
PC: I'm an optimist, so I have to say Yes, more girls riding flatland in the future. I never knew what it was until I was 20, so exposing flatland to the general public will be the catalyst that drives more girls into riding flatland. I went up to Whistler recently for a day trip and checked out the mountain biking scene there. At the bottom of Blackcombe a few small groups of riders were resting/waiting for other riders. At least a quarter of them were women. So you can cross "dangerous" as a reason why girls aren't riding flat. It's a matter of awareness.

SK: Girl categories at contests? good idea or bad?
PC: It depends where the contest is. If you have less than 5 girls in close competition with each other I wouldn't recommend a girls class. Even if you have 15 riders with 2 girls, people are going to automatically compare the girls to each other. When it comes to competition, it's not a matter of gender; it's a matter of practice. Coincidently, girls are more motivated to ride when other girls are involved. I enjoy watching a video of a girl riding more than a guy, even if the guy has superior skills, it's just human nature. So if you have the makings for a girls' class then go ahead, cause that's entertainment, and will probably spawn other girls into the sport.

SK: Best thing about the Van flat scene?
PC: We have about 6 local riders that actively ride, and we range in age and style. Vancouver is also a popular place for Asians taking ESL to stay for extended periods of time, so we usually end up with a few additional riders for the summer seasons. In general Vancouver is popular for tourist and we're lucky in that perspective because we inherit honorary crew members and new friends.

SK: What is Team Kush?
PC: Hahahah. Team Kush, the Ganji Tribe of the North West. Billy coined the term shortly after I arrived on the scene. The summer earlier Troy moved to town. The three of us were riding at the Indy Track one day, talking about organizing a jam, when Billy blurted it out during a pre-session session. I think Billy was stoked that the Vancouver scene was once again gaining momentum in permanent riders, who love the ganga, and that was it, we were a team. Initially I didn't like it, but then it grew on me. It makes me feel young, and I know there will always be a part of me that rejects professionalism, 9-5, and the rat race. It added that element of rebellion, trifling as it would seem....

SK: Name someone or something that is Trifling...
PC: Flatland is just bikes, no matter which way you look at it. People get too serious about it, cut other riders up for anything and everything, and lay too much pressure on competitions. That’s trifling. Just ride your bike, encourage others, and have fun. One time I read something on a forum about how competition is what drives flatland progression. Give me a break. I got two words for you; Travis Collier. He rides his bike, rides it well and hasn’t entered a contest for years. He is super progressive and probably my favourite pro rider, and a good friend. There are many other pros along the West Coast that do shows, not competitions and stay progressive, Travis is an example of a something I’ve seen firsthand.

What can I say....I like Kung-Fu flicks.

Bike Check - Bob on Bikes

Thats right a bike check. The best bike check ever!

Bob on Bikes Deco Succubus V2 

In the middle of a hot and sweaty Florida Summer,

after some crazy weather and too much time indoors, I was shocked today to awake,

and find my Succubus V2 pleasuring herself in the bathroom,

with Shadow ads and rideBMX mags everywhere,

sometime during the hurricane party-ing she got all worked up showing off her 19TT and sexy DECO stuff,

new grip color, alienskinned seat, dope purps seat shaft and

she was bragging about her flatland fuel gear to help finish her off. Moaned about:
sequence foot things, deja vu assuie freshness and switch levers for bi-brake-ing options.

 I'm glad MrBikes&Boards does good work, cause this dirty girl needs a tune-up she says,

 WTF all this from a flatland frame and nasty set-up!

I do personally like her Madera stem,

 Nankia bamboo back end with a Fly rim built to handle hard lashing!

 WOW Bob On Bikes is one lucky rider to be on a piece like that!

San Buenaventura SB

San Buenaventura SB slab
Talk about being on a extended vacation. I've been hanging out in Ventura for the last few days. But it hasn't been all that bad considering the place is a old folks tourist trap. I found a spot to ride at the San Buenaventura SB, it kinda reminded me of the Hilton Head Island. Huge dunes, big beaches and mini golf.
Plastic man
B. Carter Flow'n

B. Carter, Ahmed, and Antonio came up yesterday for a nice little session at the slab.
