WOW where do I begin? Gotta start somewhere so I guess with a custom deco frame and Matt Coplon. Moving onto Hiroshi and an edit is he real pumped on for good reason. Matt Closson and Blntd video is premiering at Nora cup, his section is going to be nuts. Coplon early mornings. Mannie and TA? Tang Meng checking in from Japan. Chad D on Fat Tonys podcast…sit back and learn something. Cycle Circus. And the crackpacker. -Chad D Continue reading
Here is a split interview and update. First off I want to say I am excited to get Mannie on a TA frame and some fine DecoBMX products. He is a young ripper who is about to start an adventure that will bring him around the world with entertaining people and enabling him to quit his 9 to 5. Maybe a bit weird getting in sessions on a boat but he is very excited and we look forward to his updates…read his interview below and check that whip. Terry has been pulling his hair out with grown up life stuff including his new house he just had built. With a huge focus on his garage for a riding area, he finally let the dust settle, unpacked, and got on his new bike. Enjoy both lil interviews, pics, and scroll down to see a few clips. -Chad D
Caught up with TA and asked him what he is up to and more…check what he says:
WELCOME MANNIE NOGUEIRA
Chad-First off your bike looks insanely clean and crisp and by the look on your face you look pretty excited. How does it feel to be on a Deco frame and parts?
Mannie-Yes i am super stoked on riding a Deco setup! Heard lots of good things about Deco and now that I’m on a frame/parts it feels super solid and all the parts seem to be made extremely well! So dope! ! It does look super clean and can’t wait to really ride hard on this new setup!
Chad-You landed a gig on a boat for about 8 months doing some acting them riding your bike. How did you get this and are you ready for boats n hos?
Mannie-I got this boat gig from Dane Beardsley who had currently been on the boat, he told me about this gig and what it was like so i decided to take the opportunity! I quit my job and was off to Miami, Florida for rehearsals. It was a pretty crazy experience down there learning the show and having to learn to do some acting as well… It was super awkward at first but after 3 weeks you kinda get used to it..kinda. haha. Oh am i ready for boats and hoes! but are boats and hoes ready for me? 😉
Chad-How does the rest of this year and next year look for you?
Mannie-Right now I’m getting ready for these boat shows, i fly to the UK on August 30th and won’t be back home till mid April! Hopefully i can get a few contracts out of this! When I’m back from the boat I’m hoping to hit a few contests and ride hard to keep progressing. Also hoping to do more shows weather its for a show team or starting up my own thing… I worked the 9-5 life for over 2 years out of high school and I’m not planning to go back anytime soon!
Chad-With BMX not having much money unless you do shows or win everything, how does it feel to do something you love and get to travel around the world?
Mannie-Im super stoked to have this opportunity to do these shows and travel around Europe/ the Caribbean riding my bike! Its pretty crazy when i think about it! Insane how riding my bike can take me to all these places and I can’t wait to start this new adventure!
Chad-Where can people find you? @’s, twitter, FB, #’s…
Thanks to my parents/family for all their constant support and keeping me motivated to do what i love! Thanks to all the homies i ride with and friends for the support as well. Thanks Dane Beardsley for hooking me up with this boat gig! Thanks to my sponsors, @questbmx, @bbgbmx, @huck supply co, @quartergood. And BIG thanks to DECO BMX for all the support as well!

Check out TA in his garage with the first sessions of many to come with that sweet glass garage door backdrop and also take a peek at his signature TA frame both him and Mannie are running along with the full line of PRODUCTS.
When you make Terry Adams happy he gives you shout outs in fancy places like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and invites you to be awesome, which is pretty awesome. What is more awesome than awesome? “The TA model has everything I have always wanted in a great solid traditional looking flatland frame. It’s not gimmicky, has a simple design, and its built to last. Its still short but long enough to make you feel like a man. Removable tabs and built in chain tensioners to keep things practical. This frame is everything I want between my legs. This is some quality sh*t that will provide tons of fun and give you a happy ending every time you ride it.” -Terry Adams
Here are some recent videos from TA at his house and Mannie’s first ride on his new whip…check them out and give a follow to them both.

JACKPOT is out in Japan now. Next is the USA, and those frames…are incredible. By far the best we have done so far…so excited for Tsutomu Kitayama. City Walk shows are over but check out the pics and video below. Mr Bikes n Boards went wrong, find out why in the video. Honored to be named one of the top 10 best freecoaster riders of all time. Lee Musselwhite on that show tip. Matt Coplon dried up Tampa and is back bouncing off fences. AND the instaVids for this week are rad, not just biking, but life. -Chad D
Summer over already? Well kids might be going back to school but summer is not over yet. Dodge the rain with Matt Coplon, do demos with Mat Olson, Flow with smooth styles Thomas Noyer, gawk at Wade Lajlar and his lady, and check out PRODUCTS and SHOP here. InstaVids of the week are amazing. Get up and dance. Not the rain dance. Or the tiny dancer…unless your going to hold me closer like Tony Danza…who’s the boss now? -Chad D Continue reading
Update on the JACKPOT frame order and FuForks. Frames are now out in Korea, Japan early next week, and USA first week in September but they are 90% sold. Pretty excited about this release but not enough produced to get everyone excited…sorry about this. To see more GO HERE and check out the pics and specs. About a week before they get here I will put the remainder up for sale so you can get one quickly if any are left. FuForks back in stock is really exciting with a lot of changes including thicker crown area, ED internal coating to prevent rust, and an updated removable tab system with Deco tool included.
