This post has a lot going on, starting with why Baco 11 is taking so long. Then it goes right into two videos Chad has good reason to post again. The whole FLEER trading card reasoning. Lastly the long awaited Oprah tee which is going to limited cause Oprah’s staff found out about this already and is putting it to rest. So get them HERE while they last.

This is a little interview about why Baco 11 has been taking so long. Continue reading

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

Interbike usually is a blur from no sleep, tons of alcohol, and just plain on-the-go format. This year I decided to show up late and leave early which proved to be the way to go. Rumors were flying about this year being really small and a lot of companies backing out. Truthfully it was still pretty big but YES a few big boys were not in attendance. Otherwise it was amazing, non stop laughing, drinking, and a little bit of bmx made it one of the best so far. -Chad D

Here are a few pics and some videos from Interbike 2011

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?

Longtime friend Mike Altz decided to throw a photo show with featured artist like Ron Bonner, Ryan Sher, Chipp Riggs, and numerous other local talents in SpaceBar which during the week is called Covert skate shop. Deal was these pics had to be taken by a cell phone and editing done solely in the cell phone. Great turn out, amazing pics, and finally got out of the house to chill with local homies in the Milk district near downtown Orlando. Happened on the Fix gear crew that was at the Red Bull Mini Drome as well. Guess PBR does a pub crawl every month, $1 tall boys at each stop. Who hates that? I have to get on that and I suggest you get on your bike and come out and meet us for the next one. Also, the SpaceBar photo gallery is going to happen 4 times a year. So get on that tip. Thanks to Tommy Mott, Mike Altz, and the crew of photographers to make it all happen. Good times as  you can see from the  pics below. It starts with the photo gallery, leads into the night, then ends with all my pics I submitted. Chickty check it son… -Chad
