Upgrades: 6x Ti stem bolts, GDH Ti crank spindle, Ti button bolts on front and rear hubs, Ti 9t cog, Ti female 10mm rear axle, hacked off 6mm on pivotal seatpost, front Sun rim on the rear for nice hand comfort and rear envy on the front for the machined sidewalls for braking, Deco logo grip flange cut for pressure on the sprocket to frame, sprocket milled down to 3/32 one off to match chain and rear cog, hockey tape extra thick on my lever for kushness, REM oil inside cable and moving parts of brake, filed down brake pivots so they set loose and pull smoother, Kevlar bead tires to reduce weight, 10-14mm alloy spacers for rear end, grips sat in the Florida sun for one day in 90 degree weather to soften, 110 psi carefully pressurized with hand pump.

Real cool how the through the drop out chain tensioners put pressure on the 10mm-14mm adaptor so it does not mess up the threads of the Profile 10mm button bolt. Also I can slam my wheel closest to the dropout back so my rear end is short. Another great thing is with female axle I take off the stud and it makes removing my chain to change my tire or work on my wheel real easy and I don’t bend my sprocket forcing my chain off.

Total weight: 21lbs.

MSRP: $2099.00

BMX – TOM VILLARREAL MADERA 2015 VIDEO

Hiking and Biking on the Oregon Trail with Tom Villarreal. Click here to Like us on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1HOEepQ

Tom Villarreal is all about the vibe and this edit gives off the best of vibes. While heading north and avoiding the dangers of the Oregon Trail, Tom was able to see some beautiful sites as well as film some beautiful clips. There are some classic spots in here and some new ones, but Tom uses all of them in the way he knows best: like a badass.

“When I was in high school, the urban legend of the local asylum Floated around in the gossip ether. If you had a drug addiction. If you were baker acted. There was always someone who knew someone that supposedly ended up here. Fast forward a couple decades and I meet “Batman,” the caretaker of the closed down sanitarium. He invites us in and lets us creep through the many cavernous hallways, abandoned bedrooms, gym and cafeteria. The place is prime for a Steven King novel. After cleaning up some raccoon shit to make a path, Batman helps us set up this desk to ride and asks if he could get in the picture. Manual between a weekend of monsoon storms. Thanks for the tour, Batman.” -MATT COPLON  Pic by @scgsteve #profileracing @profile_racing #decobmx @decobmx #etniesbmx @etniesbmx @f0lklore #folklorebrand #bmx #choosetampa #tampa #asylum #haunted #sanitarium @matt_coplon

Profile – Interbike 2015 – More BMX Videos

Deco – Interbike 2015 – More BMX Videos

It’s hot as fuck in California so I can only imagine it’s even worse out in Vegas, where Matt Closson calls home and where much of the BMX industry will be gathering over the next few days at Interbike. In this new video Matt braved the scorching temps at various skateparks and put down some heat of his own. Matt’s section in the Blunted DVD “Forever Rolling” will be dropping at Nora Cup in just a few days so get ready for much more from this guy.

HIROSHI TALKS 430/DECADE

Back in July Tom Lammerse and I went to Tokyo, Japan to film for a video project for Vans. Besides riding we wanted to meet as many people as possible and we wanted to really see what the Tokyo/Japanese culture was like. Lahsaan kobza told us to go to Decade bmx shop and meet up with owner Hiroshi Uehara. Meeting Hiroshi was inspiring to say the least. From the Decade store we went to Meiji Jungu and while walking through this peaceful place we asked him some questions for this Orange Juice exclusive interview.

Chad DeGroot Labor Day Daytona

“Labor Day vacation in Daytona Beach with the family. With all the Free parks to ride it was a must to load up the bike rack with all our bikes and even a new one given to my shop Mr. B’s now turned into a beach bike to scare the birds with my son. 14 floors up or if you do the math unlucky 13th floor made for a good top view shot of the beach and just a few flatland spins. Enjoy everything you do and never get old.” -Chad DeGroot

Nora Cup voting is over. 2015 awards are here next week. Persuasion and bribes were taken from @footprints_in_the_spam for @johnyull. A t-shirt and stickers arrived so I decided to do a decade and end it with some schlepping. Guess this style won me a few Nora cups and world titles (not sure what that means). Schlepping PSA t-shirt still available at Flatland Fuel for $5.00.

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:

Chad-What is good bubs? What have you been up to?
TA-Everything has been rad, just returned home from a weekend of shows at Moto GB in Indianapolis. Other than that, just trying to get moved into the new crib. When I get completely settled in. I plan to ride like there is no tomorrow.
 IMG_5968
Chad-How is the new bike, you choose the shiny look with chrome and put back on a front brake…why?
TA-I chose the shinny look because my homie Scott O’brien told me what’s in style and how I should set it up, so I trusted him. As far as putting  the back on the brake, I realized keeping the brake off was really holding me back from what I stand for as a rider. I always preached to do your own thing and not follow trends. So I guess it was time to take my own advise.
IMG_9054
Chad-What is going on the rest of the year, can you tell me?
TA-Rest of the year will be a mixture of appearances around the US for RedBull, filming my 3rd joint edit with Aaron Ross, riding my balls off,  and then plan on ending the year with a Profile trip with DeGroot and Matt Coplon. Things should get spicy.
 IMG_4852
Chad-Seeing your new house and your bonus size garage is pretty amazing, does your cars even park in there or is it going to stay pristine?
TA-Plan is to keep that thing clean as bean and ride like I’m 16. I’m ready.. The cars can sit in the rain, it’s time to ride.

WELCOME MANNIE NOGUEIRA

Chad-Caught up with Mannie Nogueira as he just make a few changes to his bike and we discuss what is going on for the remainder or this year and what is in store for 2016. 
Mannie-Had my first ride on the new bike yesterday! Feels SUPER good! a little getting used to the shorter frame and ill be good to go!
image1

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!

image2

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? 😉

image5

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!

image3

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…

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. 

TA TERRY ADAMS 2015 BLACK

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.
