with both, but our destiny after lunch was S&M bikes. Since it was raining, a lot of their racks were placed inside the workshop creating less space to move around. As you can witness each Friday in their 'Factory Friday' videos you can see that products are being made on the daily at S&M. They keep pumping them out. Jason "Timmy" Ball has been running that workshop forever and recently got a signature frame that were sold immediately with the last ones going to 4Down in England. So if you are after one of Jason's frames, try them. James Murphy filled us in on the things that happen upstairs and even BMX film guru Stew Johnson peeked in for a quick high 5. Always good to put a face to a name. It was nice to meet you James.
We spotted ENZO Supspension tuning around the corner of S&M and peeked in. Another MX company visited and you now have a visual of the company every time you see an Enzo sticker on the forks at Star Racing's 250 team. The Costa Mesa skatepark was closed (it rained). We can report that Anthony Napolitan isn't stuck on the fence any longer. It's a nice little concrete park which has plenty to offer. Cheap Goods BMX shop was close, and closed on Mondays. Too bad we couldn't check in with Gabe Weed and see the inside of his shop. At this point Andy Zeiss was on his way to Mike de Wit's so we headed to Mike's place and welcomed Andy to rainy California when he arrived from Germany. Dinner? We weren't allowed to go to Taco Bell another time so some REAL Mexican food was consumed. Almost as delicious as Taco Bell we had to admit, haha. What a day.
