congo just shot these photos over to me of his current setup. so fucking sick. just laced up some new woodgrain P35's and wrapped that front one with a massive 2.1. i didnt even realize the fu fork could fit a tire that size. i dig the chrome/silver/clear pedals drive setup, and that saddle looks rad with the woodgrain wheels. he's always pushin a mean whip, this shit looks sick. huge fucking shout out to congo for sending these through.
more colin fiske. this guy kills it... theres a million fucking cookie cutter skate flicks on youtube these days, but fiske is one of a kind.
this shit goes waaayyyy back... im not claiming this to be the first, but this was real early fixed freestyle footage; gaps, hop up wheelies, hopping down stairs... this edit fucked me up when i first saw it, i was so psyched on this style of riding. check the hop up skids at the end 3:59... i still think thats sick today. glad we've moved past this, but its rad to look back on.

here's a closer look at that x-life scorpio frame. theres a few details i didnt catch at first look. check that top tube, some crazy shit. i dig the x cutout on the dropouts. doesnt look like theres crimps on the chainstays, i definitely dig that after bending some rear triangles. cruise over to XLIFE for more colors, more info, or click the pic below to buy one on ebay.
