Bye Kie

Custom mods for the Aussie.

Not sure if our down under buddy Kie Ashworth has departed the country quite yet, but he’s no longer in our area. The dudes out back whipped up a custom frame for him that we’ll be shipping out to him as soon as it gets back from paint. It features brazed removable mounts, integrated seat clamp and the first frame we’ve ever made with a built in Pivotal post. Trick mods.

I think Interbike was last week, what a blur. The amount of people I ran into that I’ve known for 20 plus years is staggering. Friends for life.

Johnny Corts fabricated the seat stay bridge that will eventually hold a coin that Kie picked up somewhere in North America. Jamie Bestwick was hanging in our booth when this young man asked him what the best bike was, he proceeded to sell him a purple Marauder. If the TV career doesn't pan out he's got a job as a sales rep at Last Call. Ugh. Set up sucks. Weird big bikes from the Take for the scarf wearers out there. The most powerful woman in BMX, Sherry Hsu is a legend. Mental Jimmy's founder Harold McGruther. Pistol Pete Loncarevich, one of the greatest BMX racers of all time.
