All-City Dropout

All-City Dropout’s are here. We have the Limited all black/brakeless Dropout’s in stock in both Small and Medium. Get these limited framesets while you can.


There has been all kinds of talk about this whole 700cmx/FGFS/Tarck whatever you wanna call it category of fixed gear cycling. Tarck bikes are taking over the industry. I see more and more “core” members wanting to build up tarck bikes with huge 38c-47c tires. I know some of these riders are still embarrassed to admit they tarck or want to, but you gotta admit, its FUCKIN fun! These core members were the ones building up bikes with drops and boxed section rims to be “Proper.” Nothing over 23c tires for speed.

Now, It seems we are at the crest of a major shift in the paradigm of our industry. Yes, it’s a big sentence but it’s true. More and more people are looking to build a bike you can run into a wall and not have to worry. I think one thing is important though that we embrace all types of riding styles whether it be track or tarck. I personally love it all.

I think one should have both. One to trick and one to just ride fast.

What about you? Track or tarck?

NBD: Donghoh

NBD: New Bike Day for iMD rider Donghoh. Check out his Pista that he finally retired. That frame has gone through 4 surgeries and has still managed to crack over the spots that have been reinforced. His new cutter will be able to withstand anything he throws at it. If something does happen to it, luckily, Volume backs their frames up with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

iMD Spotlight: Dan Karl

You’ve seen the tricks. You’ve seen the pictures and videos. Now meet the man behind the tarck. Dan Karl of San Jose.

Dan burst onto the fixed scene about a year ago, and has quickly garnered attention for his brazen balls out style.

Most tarckstars are just tarckstars. One dimensional riders who have no endurance or speed when it comes to just plain ol’ riding. Not true with Dan.

Dan has placed in several different alleycats, proving that it is possible to tarck and ride. In fact, his primary gear is 49×17 (currently on his Leader Trick Star frame), which he uses to trick and ride.

His backyard (the setting of his infamous nighttime jump) has a variety of different ramps and jumps. He started building ramps for bmx, which eventually led to quarter pipes and box jumps.

While he enjoys doing jumps, Dan also says, “Ground tricks are still king. I would rather see a smooth keo with a combo than a high jump.”

Some advice that Dan has for people starting out: “Keep at it, it’s not easy to just get tricks right away. Start with one trick at a time. Learn to ride backwards and wheelie.

“It took me two weeks of really trying to land a keospin, whirlie or whatever you want to call it.”

And there you have it ladies and gents, straight from the mouth of Dan Karl. Keep at it.
