    TRAFIK presents The Official Trailer for To Live & Ride In L.A. (http://www.toliveandrideinla.com)

    Over a year in the making, To Live & Ride In L.A. is the first feature-length film about L.A.’s underground fixed-gear culture. Directed by David Rowe (Fast Friday), the documentary explores a side of Los Angeles few outsiders have ever seen.

    To Live & Ride In L.A. features talented local riders tearing up the streets with first-time visitor Keo Curry (Fast Friday, Macaframa), one of the living legends of the sport. From races through rush-hour traffic to midnight loft parties, To Live & Ride In L.A. is a fast-paced trip through the busy streets and back-alleys of one of the world’s largest cities.

    The second feature film from David Rowe, To Live & Ride In L.A. will challenge viewers’ perceptions of a city better known for its paparazzi, fake breasts, and traffic jams.

    The soundtrack for To Live & Ride in L.A. highlights top artists from record labels such as Dangerbird Records(http://www.dangerbirdrecords.com), Dim Mak Records, Anticon, SWTBRDS, and I Heart Comix and includes music by Silversun Pickups, Hot Hot Heat, Bad Veins, The Willowz, Minus The Bear, Bambu, DaVinci, Crown City Rockers, Datarock, Kid Infinity, Sea Wolf, From Monument To Masses, Darker My Love... and more!

    TRAFIK is a group of creatives who love biking the streets of L.A. and the world. From Japan to Australia, Europe to South America, urban fixed-gear cycling has become a symbol of a new generation that isn't afraid to bomb hills, split lanes, and defy norms.

    TRAFIK is Global Fixed Gear Culture.

  2. This teaser is featuring Hugo Rocha, a fixed gear rider from Porto, Portugal. Covered with cobblestones and hills, Porto is definitly not the place to ride a bike without brakes, still Hugo is commuting with his bike every day.

    The final project "The use of Space" is going to be architecture Master Thesis - about how to use urban space, with bikes, skateboards or just simple with your body.

    Thanks to:
    Hugo Rocha - The Rider

  3. Fixed On Fixed is a short film clip profiling five female bicycle riders and their love of riding fixed gear.

    Riding fixed gear is not only about the bike but also the community that comes with it and this particular fixed gear community is a small, passionate collection of riders who all share a love of riding slightly differently from one another.

    Fixed On Fixed profiles each rider, along with the group as a whole, to share their individual story and collective experience in what riding means to them.
