Fail...

やっぱりマジェやっちゃったね~
ずっと時間の問題だと思ってた。
ロールとかもやるしね・・
あ・・そういえば今日一郎さんと話したらビアンキに合いそうなフォークがあるみたい。
マジェこのブログ読んでるかどうか分かんないけど。

Good friend Maje of mine broke his fork the other day.
Not surprising at all since he rides pretty rough.
Wheelies, rolls, fakies, you name it.
I was more surprised that his carbon fork held up this long.
Anyway, heres the aftermath.
The fork didnt actually break where youd think it would, it broke within the head tube.

あとは最近流行りの「ねじり」。
マッチ君が相当頑張ってるみたい!
僕のもよろしくお願いします!

Seems like the big trend nowadays, Im not sure what you guys out there in the english speaking world call it, but its called "Nejiri" in japan.
Among the trick fixed riders, this seem to be the popular choice.
My friend and Everee staff, Machi-kun has been pumpin these out like theres no tomorrow.
Anyhow, here are some slight variations of it.

マジェの1回ねじり。
1 "twist".

個人的に好きな2回ねじり。
2 "twists"..my personal favorite.

3回ねじり。
けっこう派手だね。
3 "twists".
A bit too much for me...but i can see it being pulled off.
Ammo.

Fail #2.

yo, that lacing is often called 'snowflake', for obvious reasons. ;)

looks a lil' wack to me, though.
