In order to celebrate the move, we threw a grand opening party on April 14th. About a hundred people showed up on a sunny Saturday afternoon to check out the new shop. We had free drinks/snacks, a ton of special offers and there was also a 50€ gift certificate up for grabs for whoever could guess the exact weight of our infamous tandem BMX-bike. Stephan Goetz out of Regensburg came out as the lucky winner. Congratulations! Later in the afternoon everyone ventured over to the Lohhof skate park, which is a mere five minute bike-ride away from the shop. The park got pretty crowded, but the sesh still had a nice chill atmosphere and everyone found enough room to ride. The riding that went down was awesome and it was good to see a lot of younger kids shred the course together with all the locals from Munich (Perry Petermueller, the Wildner bros, Flotho, Daniel Tinhof, Ed Steen and Philip Koelsch). The day ended with a free bar-b-q and more free drinks. Thanks to everyone for coming out and making a grand opening a fun day! It’s greatly appreciated!

For the first time in 18 years, freestyle BMX legend TIM “FUZZY” HALL is preparing to ride a different brand of bike.And loving it.“I received my new sublimated Redline Device a week ago and have been so excited to ride it,” says Fuzzy. “It’s a feeling I haven't had since I was 9-years-old. I’ll admit I was a little worried about getting used to a new bike after being on the same one for so long, but as soon as I hopped on the Redline, I knew it was dialed.”
