There are lots of cyclists on San Francisco streets, but this time they're not the helmeted business commuters or the bobbing-and-weaving messengers -- nor are they tattooed and bearded fixie hipsters. No, these are bike parkour daredevils who've declared they've conquered San Francisco.

An installment of the #OneTankAdventure video series, director Devin Super Tramp and several of these bike parkour riders recently made a stop in San Francisco to see what challenges our streets could provide. Extreme riders took to 16-inch BMX bikes and seatless mountain bikes to defy gravity with strength, flexibility, and balance in a way that makes anxiety fun.

Check out the video of their rides through San Francisco:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
