Woke up a lil hung over with all my clothes on, not sure what time warp I hit last night but it seems like I went back in time but woke up and it was the future. Brushed my teeth with sand. Then ate the ass out of a plant. Now I’m rambling trying to take up space for this weeks intro. YAYA, you heard it here first. Then PHX got some mad Deco from MR. filth himself. Taggin and shaggin. Tequila. Tremaine is back on it with a knee brace, that shit isn’t gonna slow him down. Meister does wallrides better than anyone, the new BMX PLUS shows that off as well Mat Olson doing a tuck flip at some X-thang. Pick up a copy and put it on your wall like us kids use to do. Japan seems to have mad Deco as well, Tang Meng hits you with his edit flowing flat and park sessions. Hit up everyone on the TEAM PAGE if you don’t know now you do do. Trails are getting support for Mat Olson and Deco. Hit that Jam.Whisky. Matt Coplon is a weekend warrior hitting you with some walls and balls. No meat. Lastly Chad attempts the new school pogo stick. -Chad D Continue reading

Tom Villarreal, 1st member of Deco. BMX in 2009. Holding it down in LA. His signature frame “Lifted” will be out in 2012, all brakeless no threads on the frame, simple, strong, and clean.
What lifted means to Tom Villarreal…. It means being lifted away from the fucked society we live in today. From the bullshit the government feeds you to the wasted years spent believing in something you have no control over. Do you and what you love, your time will be up before you know it then your stuck in the ground where your feet stayed planted when you had the chance to be LIFTED

My name is Mat and i’m up to bat! I ride my bike as much as possible, specially when it involves traveling to new places and check out new spots. I like to ride street and park, but my heart is home at the trails. Go high and fast, that’s the recipe for fun. I ride in BMX stunt shows for work and I ride after for fun. I don’t need much in life. Good times, good friends, and good times.Remember this…BMX is only limited to your own creativity and Deco. is the shit!

This is my cover shot of FREEDOM magazine in Germany. Was on a Standard trip and while at a skatepark I blew up my back tire so I had to borrow Dave Freimuth’s bike, all virgin white. Chico clothing style, baggy as hell shorts, stupid face hair…but doing the pedal boogie for a cover.

This pic I had to look at a few times. I wasn’t into it at first but then I noticed my feet and hand situation and I’m pumped James Covington got this pic…enjoy. -Chad D
Ohh the darkside. This trick to this day is fun. When I am 50 I will still be doing this. It started as an accident then led into the transition from front wheel to back or vice versa. This pic by James Covington captures it at the best point, one hand on the front tire, one on the back, both feet off, and in motion. Good times, go packers, ra ra 2013 shocka. -Chad D
