In the end of 2013 i started riding for Destroy Bikes
Since day one i knew what i wanted on a Frame:
a non grind sided frame where i could do every single grind trick regular and switch without breaking chains and sprockets.
Over the past 6 months i have been testing the frame,
This video is a result of the test and if you want to see how the frame handled it, make sure you meet meet me Next Saturday , May 10th at Redbull Ride + Style in San Francisco, California.
Destroy bikes will be there selling the all new BRAINIAC , ZEROSEN and the 2014 UNICORN KILLER frames.
Follow @destroybikes and @ricardolino on Instagram for more updates on the brainiac frame
A couple of months ago i got a message from a friend asking if i wanted to ride some portuguese straps, i told him right away i would love to support a portuguese company but im on ZONTRAC and im really really happy with it.
BUT it happens, this portuguese company which is called MALABINA main thing are the bags. we got to a deal and here it is THE LINO BAG.
now go check www.malabina.com and order your lino bag the color you want.
Last weekend Pedro José Oliveira was in Lisbon shooting an interview Stoked on fixed Bikes with Mr. Duarte Lima. i wasn't in town Saturday but managed a way to have a morning sesh with them.
Heres 2 shots from this session at Expo skatepark. a new episode of IN THA video series called "in tha bridge park #2" coming in the next few days.
Here a compilation with some of my best clips, some from 2012 and others from late 2011.
about 2 weeks ago i mailed Kris Fay asking when would the next 3:30 would be online, he answered me saying he didn't had anyone for it yet! i also told him i would love to film a 3:30 one day... that day came one week later!
i had so much shit planed, but like most of times plans suck, and with my 7 broken spoke wheel mixed with the dead lights turned real sick in my opinion. Thanks Kris Fay and LOCKECOG for the opportunity, im pretty sure a lot more projects like this will happen..

'' Ricardo Lino... he's portuguese, so it's impossible not to like him with his constantly happy attitude and warm smile at his face. he is humble and hard working guy and most of all a lovely husban to his gorgeous wife,,, but when he rides bike, he changes into a demon! if he only made a smallest vision of a stunt is his crazy mind, than nothing will stop him to make it real!
his experience, skill and mental strengh are making ricardo one of the best and most progressive freestyle fixed gear rider ever...''
Szymon Nieborak - Photographer
"Ricardo Lino possesses an endless positive vibe and general good nature that should serve as an inspiration to riders everywhere. Constantly upping his game, A day does not pass where Lino doesnt hit the streets and 'shredwell'. If we all take one thing from him, it should be to constantly test your own limits and learn to both ride as well as slam with a smile."
Joe Krillz - Grime Bikes Co-owner
"Lino is a reference when it comes to extreme sports, not only as a rider, ut also as a teacher. you gotta come and check thelinolife because you will find videos, photos, etc. from one of the craziest dudes ever!"
Martim B. Teixeira - Videographer
"This is my husbands website! He´s the most creative, determined and passionate person that i know, so i´m sure you'll find the reflection of all this in here... i hope you enjoy it, because he'll be here for a while and not with me.. ;) enjoy!"
