First off, I've had a crush on Monica for years. Don't tell her. Secondly, regardless of the drama, I would have to save them. Couldn't let anyone get hurt....but then I would feed them some tofurky subs with vegenaise. From there, they would never go ... more »

I think that is a kick ass idea. Let's get Brumlow on that...I think it would get the kids real stoked. We ran into Jason Levy in Gainesville back in 2009 (of gun toting/firing fame circa the Aspire Contest videos). He took us back to his apartment where ... more »

Agreed. So awesome man. Don't think that era of music could ever be re-done. Back when everyone wrote letters to each other via real mail, and set up tours by a rotary phone. Crazy. Please do keep in touch and if you have any other questions, hit me ... more »

That is awesome man. Small world. Yes, I did do vocals. Was/am a fan of Still Life, Moss Icon, and Yage. We actually got to play with Yage in Germany. My friend Meghan plays bass for Ampere. She's an old friend of mine and they're still kicking it. I ... more »

Born and raised my dude! Plain and simple, he was interested in riding for us, was really into it, flew here, met with myself, Mulville, Jim (the owner) and Charlie (our promotions manager), and after the meeting we thought, "This dude rules, we need ... more »

The name dates back to Central Skatepark, Mark Mulville and Jeff Harrington circa 01.' That's as far as I can go with an appropriate explanation. If you want the real reason, ask Mark: His phone number is 8-6-7-5-3-0-9. But Jenny might answer.

Like one of my most favorite scenes in the US (Providence/Pawtucket), its filled with riders who are super motivated and super positive. Positivity is key... I love Florida because of the riders who live here...loving something makes it super easy to ... more »

Funniest thing I've seen Crandall do: Treat everyone to icecream from an icecream truck, while in his socks, in Pittsburgh. Favorite spot in Richmond? How about I go even further and say, its ONE of my most favorite cities in the US. Running into you? ... more »

Awesome. Yea, I do! I was in a band called Reversal of Man and we got to play several shows with Orchid and Saetia in the late 90's. Good era of music. We were actually on the same label as orchid: Ebullition. On the cranks, do you mean that once tightened, ... more »

That's a pretty kind statement. I think the basic philosophy is treat others like you'd want to be treated. No one wants to be attacked, or criticized. Success in bmx? I'm happy doing what I do. I love riding, I love my job, and I've got a great support ... more »

If I had to choose a barn yard entity, I'd roll a pig. Have you read Orwell's "Animal Farm?" Good read...pigs are pretty smart little fells.

I am, but I do keep it personal and would never judge someone else for what they do. The reasoning is quite personal: the environment I grew up in was a bit harsh when it came to "partaking." I'm also prone to an addictive personality. Luckily, bmx filled ... more »

Day for sure. The earlier the better. That is a good question. In all honesty, flatland. It takes the most mental strength. Trying times arise when you sit in a parking lot for 8 hours trying to pull one trick. That could cause serious argument. ha! ... more »

Have or create a personal connection within the industry. Our industry is unfortunately pretty small, so knowing someone who can help you get your foot in the door is pretty important. I know many people are pulled from having jobs at bike shops too. ... more »

Sorry to hear about the hubs but as I've mentioned below, I take/direct most of the calls here at the shop. Pretty positive I (for sure) nor our warranty guy would have said that. I'd be glad to help you out or direct you to warranty if you'd like. Give ... more »

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm one of the main people who answers the phone here. I'm here to help. If you have an issue, give me or Shane in warranty a call: 727-391-7370

Thanks. Appreciate it. Still one of my favorite bands. Ha! I think a lot of the questions are valid though. As far as price goes, I can see the reservation, but I think in time, the performance of the hub will weigh in support of the price. I think what ... more »
