More About Joe and Matt Rodriquez:

Our Festival celebrates and promotes the art form of custom, lowrider, vintage and cruiser bicycles. San Josè is considered to be an epicenter of this art and cousins Joe and Matt Rodriquez belong to one of the Bay Area’s first families of lowrider bicycle builders. As pre-teens they began designing and building bicycles under the tutelage of Matt’s beloved grandfather, William “Pops” Camacho.

Joe is a now a professional photographer, a bike builder, a founding member of the LuxuriouS Bike Club and is the publisher of Gooseneck Bicycles Magazine. His photographs and on-line magazine showcase this art form and the culture that creates it. Instagram: gooseneckmagazine

Marrying modern design, functionality and the San Francisco Bay Area’s hot rod, motorcycle, lowrider and graffiti urban cultures, Matt is a veteran bicycle designer, fabricator and builder. His Shorty Fatz and  Pops Fabrication Series 8’s have sold world-wide and have been featured in the Los Angeles Times and exhibited at the Oakland Museum of California and San Jose’s Museum of Art.

Both Matt and Joe’s bicycles were exhibited at History San Josè’s 2014-2015 exhibition, Silicon Valley Bikes! Passion, Innovation and Politics Since 1880.
