Rumors were flying about where JJ Palmere would end up after parting ways with Mongoose around a week ago. Today it was announced that JJ has re-joined the Premium team. We asked JJ a few questions to get some details.
PhotoSo you're back on Premium, huh?
Yes I am.

How did this come about?
Well, things at Mongoose have been good over the past months, but everyone at the office is leaving after October of this year. When I heard this news I wasn't psyched on it. I like having a good relationship with my sponsors. I would have to meet all new people there. I was tight with the team manager at Mongoose and I didn't feel right knowing all of this was coming in the future. The people at Premium are some of my really good friends. It just felt right to be on a team with my best friend again. After talking to Garrett (Reynolds) and the people at the office, I decided Premium is where I belong.

Has anything changed at Premium since you originally left?
Yes, the team manager has changed, which is a BIG difference.

What is your current bike set up?
It's a Premium 21" Deathtrap frame with Premium lite forks, Premium wheels, Premium cranks, a Premium Subten stem, Premium 8.25 bars, Premium comfort grips, a Premium fat seat with a pivotal post, etc.

Do you have anything else in the works with Premium?
As of right now just to make web videos for them and do trips together.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

Anything else you'd like to add?
Life's great. Must be nice!
