We receive some crazy mails here at FATBMX. When we received info about the Robbo bike, we weren't sure what to think. It's easy to throw these mails in the bin but then you don't know what you're missing out on. Did Rob-O come up with a new FITness bike? That could be a yes, or could be a no.
Well this is now my 3rd time out of the country. This one isn’t too bad though. I flew to Woodward from Florida, then the next day drove to Canada with my friend Mike Fede. We got there pretty early at 9 am so we were pretty tired, but a few hours later we got to ride the course. But when we rode, so did 50 other people. It was pretty wild but so busy. It was fun though. Everybody was doing trains and stuff going really high on the wedge wall thingy.

Have priorities changed now that you have become a dad? Mike: A little, I still ride just as much I just look forward to coming home and seeing what new thing Owen has learned. I see it as a positive affect on my life.
Is the baby stylin' through the house yet? Mike: If by stylin' you mean ripping it apart, I couldn't be more proud of the way he breaks shit.

More and more artists are being asked to do designs for BMX related companies. When you are designing 4 complete lines of shoes per year, you can use some outside help too.

Son of a Burmese mother and a Lithuanian father his diverse upbringing has lead to different techniques that strive for a spirit of all that he loves in each work.

Something's cooking over at the SE camp. They've teamed up with DC Shoe Co. to celebrate their 30 years of BMX involvement. The second photo shows just a little more than their first one a few months ago. The release date is June 2007, for whatever it is. Keep checking.
Rob Wise has been added to the Mirraco team. This is what team manager Gator had to say about it when he found the words:“I sat here and tried to think of a million different ways I could introduce Rob Wise to the team, so I decided on the first. I was on a road trip with Rob and got to see firsthand how talented this guy is on his bike."
