Mat Olson is living it up doing school shows for awhile. Most people don’t think living it up is doing weird shows for bratty school kids, but if you are getting a few bucks, traveling, and riding your bike for people, I really don’t think that is to bad. So if you know Mat and crew are coming to your school, scream “do a backflip” the whole time they are performing. They really like that shit.

The pics below are all of Mat sessioning the Casselberry trails and around Orlando. It was a must to bring him to the Maitland trannies and witness him doing the highest airs and even more than a few flairs on the steep trannies. Hit this LINK to see the video.

ESPN recently did a story on “the various ways that other BMXers have made the jump from riding into television. Starting with Chad Degroot’s appearance on The Jerry Springer show and ending with Strangers in Danger, this is a small sampling of BMXers turned TV personalities. Enjoy.” HERE is the tab and launch the gallery to see the 1st pic of guess who? Continue reading

Its real hard to write words for someone who passed away. Glad to have known you, ridden with you, and supported  you through Mesh skatepark and MR. B’s. RIP Rickey…and sorry for calling you “turd dick”. I am pretty sure you didn’t give a shit, but maybe we shouldn’t have taken an ad out for that. Either way, you didn’t give a shit. Respect for that…-Chad D

-Hit up the SPOT Roast in Tampa coming up next month. Deco. will be out there showing our shit off and maybe rolling around for a minute. See ya there.

-The Two By Four/Deco. grassroots riders Eugene and Zach threw this edit together with a pretty funny intro. Thanks guys. Holla anytime. Continue reading

Deco. BMX and Profile Racing would like to announce the new US Distribution of Deco. products through Profile headquarters in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Below are a few questions between Chad DeGroot (owner of Deco. BMX) and Matt Coplon (TM and head sales) about the Distribution situation.

Profile has been making some moves the last few years, now with Deco. being distributed by Profile Racing, how do you feel about this?

It’s been ten years now since I came on board to manage Profile Distribution. We have never been in a position where we seek out product to distribute—we actually started the distro here b/c most of our Domestic and International distributors cannot stock all the variations (odds and ends) of the bike products that we manufacture. Through those years, we’ve picked up a very limited number of brands (Country Bikes and Sun Rims) to compliment what we carry here in the shop. For the most part, those brands are close to us on a personal level…picking up Deco falls into the same category. DeGroot has been riding for Profile now for four years…it’s been a strong relationship and anything that Chad does we would like to be in a position to help support him. He’s family, and Deco is quality  Product that we both ride and feel confident in pushing.

You mentioned offering some completes, Profile parts and Deco. rounding it off, this leads into some real high end bikes. Is this more for promo or will these be for sale?

Like we currently offer with Country/Profile, we plan on doing the same with Deco through our Online store. Basically, a higher end Profile complete featuring a Deco frame, fork, bars, grips, and pedals.

There are two very different companies uniting to scratch each others backs, is this a Florida thing?

Less Florida, more family! You’re still a yankee until you reach that 20 year residency mark…that’s coming up, right?

It has been almost 10 years since we have been emptying my pool and riding it in the Florida winters. Its still amazing, new shit has gone down every year, and so many thanks to everyone who has ridden it, stopped by with beer, or partied at the bottom. This night was no different. Keg, tons of food, and Hey Man laying face down with a handle of the cheapest whisky care of Brumlow. The costumes came out and everyone took it to the T-Pain app.

Last night I kissed it good by for the year, the hose is on and running full blast. With the rain the next few days it will be filled in no time and off to the season of swimming.

Thanks everyone who came out and a big hand shake to Dave for the paint job, that shameless Deco. logo is going places son. Another sesh in 2012, the year of the end of the world…get ready. -Chad

Keith Terra was in town a few weeks ago doing a session at Casselberry trails and thought while he was here he would stop by my backyard and do a gallery.

“Having my pool drained almost every year since 2001 has brought many
different riders for a Florida winter session. It’s a waste to keep it
running in the winter cause the water seems to stay pretty cold and cloudy
cause all the leaves are constantly dropping. So with that and we live on
top if a hill, so the water table won’t send the whole pool out of the
ground. So we can leave it empty for most of the winter and get in some
sessions.

Every year once it’s drained and dry it seems like the pool tranny is impossible. But then after a bit, new lines and tricks are still
happening. This year we painted it and added the launch ramp from the
Bargespin trip. It all flows well and those Sunday sessions are getting
better than ever. I would have never guessed the warlock gun shooting maniac Jason Levy would grace our session and throw down some moves and leave everyone laughing while he talks about his dreams, ideas, and way of life.

More sessions to come…”

Anyway, click HERE and check out the pics and what goes on in my backyard paradise. Also, Profile Racing did a little news thing on it as well with a Warlock pic, you ask who that is…click HERE and find out.

Gotta love the 80’s, well if you were born. Screw it, look back and see what really went on. Everyone makes fun of us for dressing up every time we have a party at our house. Shit, we have a closet full of gear like this. Turn down the suck, turn up the good. Go 2 11.

Get Mad crazy son.

Break your new iphone 4, fuck life.
