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?

Sometimes when you see to many words it looks like a chore to read it all. We used the right wording and inspiration and posted it on all our packaging. Its a product description that makes sense. Click on each one to unleash our secrets. -Chad D Continue reading
Mat Olson doing:
“360 Flip Dude or 360 flip dawg…shit”
Mat is from Lake Havasu. His skatepark is rinky dinky but he makes it worth while. The city asked him to build some trails next to the park. So he did. The video below isn’t about the riding or the trails, its about the man behind the camera and us getting an interview with him. Continue reading
Here are those couple pics of Tom I took on Tuesday. We went out and started to film for the next Madera edit, got a couple clips that were pretty bad ass.
Snapped this shot of a brand new spot we found. It used to be an old wallride—someone lopped it off and made it a stem high ledge. Tom jumped it once then nose bonk 180’d it. Fucking ape. -Matt Coplon
Mat Olson had the privilege of teaching at Woodward camp this year. It was only for a short period but if you know Mat you know he lived it up, learned a ton of new tricks, and made the trip the best it could be. Here is a play by play on his trip out and then back to Denver. Continue reading
Who doesn’t take pics with their phones? Idiots? Probably…
Well this is pretty sweet, I submitted 15 pics of myself nude and they are going to show them off one night only. So if you want to see it, check it. Actually there are more than a few names you would notice showing off their shit, like Ron Bonner, Ryan Sher, and Chipp Riggs. If your in this area or rich as hell get a plane tic and stop by August 27th. We will be there with our beer exhaust faces rummaging around acting cool.
Next, we have the Red Bull Mini Drome. This is going to be nuts as it gets. They asked me to compete, but I think just taking a few hot laps around while drinking a beer and in a thong would be more appropriate. If you want to check the video hit it up HERE. When you mess up you fall off the edge of the world. Soo good… Continue reading
Mike Meister is always up to something. His edits are always a treat to see, and you never know what is going to happen in them. Plus the music. This time he hit it good with some old clothing company track that was amazing. Get up on that ass and slide down, sweet ass grind.
Next is a vid from our distributor in Japan holding it down in Tokyo. They are making some moves with Crocs, seems like they are doing some kind of real shoes now? Either way, these guys rule and you need to know this.
This is truly the calm before the storm. Our huge shipment is arriving here in less than two weeks, so we are twiddling our thumbs. Sorry there has been an overload of bmx on these posts, it has been all good and our riders are amazing. So for this post were gonna step back, give you a few pics to ponder, wrap them up with a few stories, then hit you where it hurts. Enjoy…
