A big thanks to all who came out to the opening reception for the MASH exhibition at Project Space. It was a beautiful, sunny L.A. day and the fixed gear community represented in full to see and celebrate the accomplishments of the MASH team during the 2009 Tour of California.
MASH rider Walton Brush came in first in the fixed-gear only race from Echo Park to Project Space that preceded the event. The short jaunt was a proverbial walk in the park compared to the 750-mile course he journeyed as a barely-legal rider with MASH on the 2009 Tour.
The event also hosted the premiere of a new 12-minute video short of footage and reflections from the MASH team during the 2009 Tour. The crowd grew steadily over the course of the evening, taking time to socialize, revisit the MASH journey through the photographs and displays and enjoy giveaways courtesy of MASH, Incase and Arkitip.
All in all, it was a night of good times filled with a true sense of community. We hope you all enjoyed the event as much as we did. Check out all the photos in this Flickr set.
The MASH installation will be on display at Project Space through June 6.

Gallery hopping in Miami is a trip—dare we say a difficult endeavor when having to venture to all parts of the city while getting stuck in massive amounts of traffic in 85 degree weather. We made it to a few of the more worthwhile galleries to ooh and ahh (and sometimes ogle) the profound (and not so profound) pieces of artwork, contemplating the inspiration and meaning and sometimes questioning the value. ‘Art is in the eye of the beholder’, right?
The favored, as we’re sure many would agree, would be the Beg Borrow and Steal exhibition at the Rubell Family Collection, featuring 260 works by 74 renown artists including Damien Hirst, Richard Prince, Barbara Kruger and many others.
Here are some of our personal favs, including an edible Dunkin’ Donuts Old Fashioned donut installation—amazing!
Don’t look so serious Tracko!

BFF is visiting Portland this weekend. Make sure to see some of the movies that are being shown. Specially the portrait of the legendary Italian Frame Builder Giovanni Pelizzoli aka “Ciocc”. Amazing film.
