My life has been greatly influenced by the world of BMX since I was a young boy. The BMX scene provided me with an alternative social and athletic outlet from traditional team sports and has helped form me into the driven individual I am today. I vividly recall the lighthearted and euphoric mood that enveloped the local skate park, the feeling of adrenaline surging after a particularly daring session, and the simple pleasure of riding the trails in the early morning mist. But the greatest of these recollections most certainly is the distinct joy that came from building bikes.
The geometric and symmetrical patterns of the various handmade and machined parts have been the driving force for my love of BMX since day one. Constructing a bike from the ground up with these individual parts has given me a deeper appreciation for the precisely fabricated metal and their incredibly durable designs. Each with their own place in the puzzle, these parts come together to make a functional piece of art that is worthy of artistic recognition. From the radial geometry of the sprocket, hubs or wheels, to the repetition of the chain and spoke pattern, the BMX bike is both a beautiful piece of art still, or in motion.
