Yesterday I met up with Dave Thompson, Van Homan, Garrett Reeves, Randy Brown and Andrew Jackson, who are in Cali filming for an upcoming G-Sport Props segment. Stew Johnson was manning the camera and Andrew White was getting all the proper action shots for DIG.
I met up with the dudes at the hotel they were staying at, and then we proceeded to bounce around various spots in L.A. A bunch of good stuff went down.
As always, I snapped some photos throughout the day, so click below to check them out.
My buddy Tim approached me like 1.5 years ago to create a cool looking bike to display at his shop UNIV in Encinitas. I made very lazy progress, enlisting the help of friends whenever the thought crossed my mind… a seat cover here, a headtube badge there, until we were done. All my favorite companies contributed (see who after the jump) among which was our friend Matt at The Laboratory who handcrafted a multi-layered textured paint finish that looks exactly like something that just spent a few decades at the bottom of the ocean.
In the end though, it’s just a BMX bike so Jim and I took a morning drive down to UNIV to test it out on the world’s smallest quarterpipe. Click below to see all the photos and read UNIV’s press release.
