The Rivival

Last sunday i hit up the most genuine Fixed Gear Shop in Brisbane, if not Australia - GEAR and bought myself a copy of "The Rivival".

started by two fixed gear enthusiast Wayne Morhart and Tom Briggs from Vancouver, and collaborating riders from all over North America, they present the most in depth and beautiful fixed gear film.

recruited riders such as the pioneer of the new Fixed Trick 700cmx scene - Tyler Johnson of ZLOG, Prolly of Prolly is not Probably, Tom Mosher, Torey Thornton of Wrawh and GRIMES and off course the most amazing dude on the Fixed Trick - Ed "Wonka" LaForte.

after watching it with my fixie partner Kelvin, we both ended with a fire burning inside us, wanting to jump on our bike and start thrashing on the streets and jumping over 7 stairs and on top of a water fountain. but sadly, when we cleared our mind, the fact that it's 12:30 am and probably only around 12 degree outside, we realised we can only jump over a can of coke and barely go up a hill.

ps: while i was at gear, i was deciding whether to get the rivival or the film by the GRIMES crew "Death Pedal 2". As the owner Erik can obviously tell by my face impression that i was having a hard time choosing which one to get, he kindly helped me by telling me that "they are both pretty good films about tricks on fixed". thanks for helping Erik.
