Leland Thurman uploaded Ryan Metro’s section from the Shitluck “Against All Odds” video for your viewing pleasure. Ryan’s signature fro is too good to pass up. Check out all 3 minutes and 38 seconds of proper peg use.
This week’s column came about in an interesting way. My good friend Jesse Bower, aka Fisher from back in New York who is part of the FBM Hall of Fame crew hit me up to come down and visit for a few days. While we were talking he happened to mention Ryan’s name saying that he lives out in So Cal and he was going to try and hang with him as well. As soon as I heard that I got the idea to interview Ryan and get him a chance to fill everyone in on the latest with his life and riding. It’s been quite a bit since most people have heard Ryan’s name so it was my goal to spend the day with him and just see what comes of it. The quick version goes a little something like this…We linked up at his house in the morning, hopped on the subway and headed to downtown Los Angeles to cruise around with him and a few friends from back in Louisville where Ryan is from. There was no real plan and no real destination. We simply set out to have some fun on our bikes and leave the bullshit behind. Although it was raining all day we still managed to find a few spots to ride and it was a nice reminder to slow down a bit and take it all in. BMX is an amazing thing and sometimes it’s days like that which put things into perspective and make you really appreciate something so simple as cruising through city streets with no plan but to have fun. Check out the interview below and then hit up the photogallery to see more photos from the day.
Name: Ryan Metro
This is pretty rad. Long time BMX supporters, Lucero finally upgraded from a van to a tour bus, so they figured it would be a good idea to base their latest music video around the destruction of the van. It’s pretty awesome to see Shitluck‘s Leland Thurman and some FBM logos on the side. Plus, the song is pretty damn good too. Gotta love it.
It looks like the long awaited Shitluck video is finally going to drop. I almost forgot Leland was working on this. Awesome.
“The long awaited video from Shitluck Clothing should have been called “Better Late Than Never”. This video features Chester Blacksmith, Cameron Wood, Mike Corts, Chris Wilson, Ryan Metro, Joe Mettile, Bugsy, Tim Bunoa, Brandon Burke (the zebra), Marcas Grubbs, Vince Smith and many more.” – Leland Thurman
