Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Scraper Bikes is on the Scene
Scrapertown from California is a place. on Vimeo.
The latest bike phenomenon isn't about fixed gear hipsters, carbon coveting spandex boys or rail riding street BMXers. Scraper bikes are on the scene. Born in East Oakland, scraper bikes are about self expression, community and just plain representing, on a budget.
But my favorite part about scraper bikes is the parade. There's something inclusive AND competitive about riding around in packs, showing off your scraper bikes. Its East Oakland's second line.
