Sponsor-me videos have been out since, well since sponsors have been sponsoring people or things. Fuck it, CDC wants to ride for DECO. do I let him? His video is below…watch it, watch it twice. Then watch the skate video that Adam Baker sent to me…holy balls, which one do I sponsor, the skater or the CDC. Touchy decisions being a Bike company owner. Please help me. Continue reading
Interbike 2009 was the unvailing of my new brand Deco. The show was OK, feet hurt, but that is what beer is for. Vegas isn’t vegas unless you do some wild shit. This year it wasn’t that wild, but I did get a tattoo while McGoo talked for an hour…dam he be funny shit. Mainly talking about gays and bangin Katt von D.
This was the first year for Virgin James, so we tried to show him a good time. Locked him in a bathroom with the entire room. Sorry james, guess he hit his head trying to break free. Actually got his underwear snagged and torn off while he was bangin his head on the tile. That sucks.
There were a lot of mustache representation and some good times at Nora cup. Some tears and some beers. Some got kicked out for life and others motor boated some cleavage. Video is coming soon… Continue reading
Here it is, I can finally say what is going on. The site will still go on, sorry it has been slow. But I have been working a ton on launching my new company called “Deco.”. We have t-shirts, amazing hats, stickers, and other unmentionables.
Might as well tell you about the name, sounds like Baco. Which is sweet, but it comes from my last name “DeGroot” and “company” put together…Deco. Pretty simple, that is what I like.
Expect some good products and some questionable shirts. If you lucky enough to be attending Interbike, come by my booth and check out my new stuff. There will be two hot girls passing out free hats and stickers all 3 days. Feel free to bring me beer anytime, Interbike tends to get long and a cold frosty one will pass the time nicely.
Here are some pics of the products. This is the start, so sit tight. Some things are still being worked out.
Skatepark meets flatland inspired frames. This is WAY to comfortable and good looking for one person. Go ahead and try two, might need a side cart and a monkey. Who is making the rules? some BMX Succubus? Discover yourself or who you want to be. Be a monkey, make rules, succumb to the Succubus (its only a dream), or just do it cause if feels right.
People want things that are inspired from the 4 piece handlebar feel, the 2 piece “FuBars” have the look and feel you want. Made from Multi-butted chromoly, these bad boys will let you hold the metal you have needed since you listened to Iron Maiden.
It was a game I have always played. Why pretend it’s impossible. Call them Forks, call them necessary on your bike?…Inspired with front brakes in mind, these steep 28mm rake FU-Forks come with with removable 990 tabs. These bad boys will help your nose wheelies, with our without front brakes. Don’t be an Embarrassment to front wheel tricks. Do that front wheel boogie.
Unfortunately we all can’t rely on the rear brakes. Silly Slick cables designed for front brake use. Not linear. Your not doing bar spins trying to figure out which way to wind up. You can try, but we took the guess work out of knowing which cable to use with front brakes. My spies will tell you, “Slick-ISH Cables in the front Bro.” Thanks Spies…
Intended for front brake use or mild rear brakes. Doing a million bar spins is never good for any cable. They invented the rotor or the new style, no brakes (which I figured out meant no cables). Do the math.
In the olden days, people were hired to hold a cover over ones head. These days, hats are all hands free. Still a great idea having a partner managing what falls on your head, but a little silly don’t you think? Whether your balding, graying, or haven’t decided what hair style fits you. These hats will let you think of more important things, like enhancing your mustache.
Have you ever been out riding around when you need a coffee? Pop? Run into a store for some candy? A beer? Well I have decided to spend the day coming up with a ton of ideas that will work in most situations when you don’t have a bike lock. No bushes, trees, signs, bears, palletts, bikes, or Bums were hurt in this experiment. What did happen was during this process I had to shit really bad, so I threw my bike in the bushes and ran like hell to the bathroom of the Boston Market (Dang gravy). When i came out my bike was gone.
If you don’t know, now you do. These are not my words, but they are pretty fucking kind regardless. Thanks to 23mag.com for the brief history lesson on BACO. What more do you need to learn, pick up all 10 of the Baco series and drop out of school. Baco is all you need to know. Click on the covers below to see full shots.
Also, this site did the history of Chad DeGroot, the PG rated version. That’s me!!! Not to bad, thanks 23mag.com
Sorry this post is slacking in the R rated content, but Interbike is on my mind, and I had to throw some BMX in here Continue reading
Best video ever. Were gonna play this on loop the entire weekend of Baco-a-NO-NO jam at Mesh Skatepark…
Come on out for Baco this year, Halloween. Will have the flyer done soon. No contest, No jam, No prizes, Nothing. But we sure as shit are having a party all friday and saturday. Bring mega phones, turn up your bass in your low rider, and tell the slutts…well, to be slutts n dress the part.
Greg has a good site, HFK, it recently was shut down and he claims he is going “.com”. Not sure why it didn’t happen already? Get your shit done son. This video below has Greg talking a little bit about his site and what to look forward to. He also talks about not being gay. He does have a lisp and that is one sign of being gay. But then again my kid loves to pronounce the shit out of “S’s”. So maybe they just really appreciate the beauty of the “S”?
If your sponsored, good. If not and you want to be, read this very carefully, this guy could be on any team with info like this. He has the looks that most big companies are lacking. I lost the video of him riding, but I will get it up asap. Continue reading
This video below is pretty amazing and I can really appreciate the time that went into this edit. Front brakes are the shit, get one, get some shit done. What ever happened to the Front Brake Revolution? No tuck no handers, no turn bars or let downs, just front wheel the way it should be. Continue reading
