Do you feel there is a need for BMX products to survive for history's sake?
Christophe Detandt: Yes, it's one of my aims! Several times, young new school riders have seen my collections at events and they were amazed... they need to know where and when BMX started!
What's one of your oldest BMX products in your collection?
Christophe Detandt: 1979 Thruster Vanishing Point BMX
When you started riding what bike was the dream bike for you?
Christophe Detandt: It was the GT Pro, I finally got it and I still have it!
Do you have decent mechanical skills?
Christophe Detandt: Yes many! I do all the resto myself, I love to get a new life to broken, bent, or abused parts.
How often do you look on eBay/Craigslist/BMX Museum to shop for old BMX stuff?
Christophe Detandt: Every day, but the prices have become totaly crazy and more again since the Covid... New "collectors" appear again...
Do you have a man-cave where your bikes are displayed?
Christophe Detandt: Yes, you can see some pics on my FB page "Church Bmx Museum"
Do you always have room for "one more bike"?
Christophe Detandt: Yes but it becomes harder and harder... My dream is a new industrial building with a mezzanine for my bikes near my office.
What's a bike (part) you have been looking for but haven't been able to locate?
Christophe Detandt: Not one in particular really, I'm very patient to find parts at the good price or with trades. I'm not in a rush but at the moment I'm looking for a Torker and Vector frameset.
Where can people reach you when they have that part available?
Thanks to: You because it's an honor for me to be reached for this interview! And all my old BMX friends who offered as a gift their old bikes for my collection. These bikes are my prefered ones because I know their stories!
