I have a couple friends in town and they’ll be top priority until I can get rid of them! But the good news is…I’d guess my Instagram’s going to be pretty killer!
Shortly after moving to Los Angeles I met Steven Nereo. That’s a funny story, but I’ll let him tell it. Back in 2006, in between riding our bikes around LA, pounding beers at the Little Joy and trolling the Singlespeed & Fixed Gear thread on Bike Forums, Steven and I realized there wasn’t a blog dedicated to track bike culture. So, we took it upon ourselves to capture that culture. To do so we drank more beers, worked on our bikes in Steven’s basement and eventually he came up with a little something that looked like this…
From the original look, to the name, this site has always had a playful spirit and Steven is largely to thank for that. Since helping me to start Tracko in 2006 Steven has been busy working on many other notable projects. He composes music, shoots pictures, published a few books, and offers up his whimsical writing via Single Ape, The Straight Nope and The Huffington Post… to name just a few. And now you can see a little bit of everything Steven does, including his illustrations at his show “Paper Friends” at the Rapha Cycle Club in San Francisco. The show opens tonight at 7pm. Don’t miss it!
