If you don’t know…now you know.

If you’re a late comer to the site…you may want to read something before proceeding any further…

Although it may not seem like it, due to Tracko never posting freestyle stuff anymore, Kyle Kelley owner and creator of Trackosaurus Rex was the first dude to post a video of my riding back in like 08. Even before that, I was a loyal follower of the blog and posted in the comments section on the daily. I know that some of you definitely remember that insane photo that was on the splash page for a few years of Sean Callahan (R.I.P.) carving that bowl on a Bianchi Pista Concept. Wild.

Things might not get posted on Tracko anymore but that site still had a HUGE influence on fixed gear freestyle and how it morphed into its current stage. Kyle even shredded himself for a while and was pushing it for sure. There was a photo of him jumping down some stairs with his EAI Bare Knuckle. If I remember correctly Keo Curry modeled Tracko Ts for the web store and always had photos and footage posted on the site and all of that material was clearly way ahead of its time.

There aren’t that many people I like to watch rip it up on fixed gear freestyle bikes but anytime Torey drops a new edit, I’m at least 30 of those views you see in the statistics(that’s about how many views you need to figure out what the hell he’s actually doing).¬† I’m a huge fan of individual style and that is something Torey definitely has!

p.s. I was doing a pop-up, to a one handed wheelie down the steps!

The times they are a-changin’

I would like to thank everyone who has followed Tracko over the years and for all the kind words on my last post. A lot of things have changed since I began this blog in 2006 and a lot of things have stayed the same. I still ride a track bike, but now it has a brake. I still race singlespeed cyclocross, but do most of my riding on a geared bicycle. I still sit behind a computer most of the day, but now its at the register of the successful bike shop I opened with two of my friends. Tracko is still a blog about bicycles, but the content has matured. The look of Tracko was just about the only thing that hadn’t changed in the last 6 years and I felt like it was finally time for a makeover!

I liked the simplicity of the old Tracko blog, but wanted to update the look and add some of the new features that my friend John said would really help improve my SEO and visit duration. I have no idea what he was talking about, but I think the finished product looks pretty damn good!

Don’t expect 100s of posts daily (you should check out my friend John’s site for that) but what you will see is all quality.¬†Like everything I do there may be some kinks to work through with the launch of this new site, but in the long run I think it will be better for everyone. Keep an eye on the store – the redesign will be rolling through there soon along with new Ramblin’ Rolls and Workmen’s caps.
