Interview: Chad DeGroot

If you follow BMX and you’re anywhere near 30, you probably know Chad DeGroot as one of the baddest riders ever. Chad has done remarkable and unexpected things – getting corporate sponsorships on the strength of (or in spite of) his R-rated BACO videos, appearing on Jerry Springer, winning major televised competitions without taking any of them seriously, and bringing a lot of attention to flatland riding.

There are some super champion competition BMXers out there with incredible drive and skill, and there are some underground backwoods jokesters out there stirring up hijinx. But how many guys were both, at the same time, and got away with it? Chad was that guy, and he’s still that guy, so just in case anyone started to forget, we did this interview.

John Buultjens’ Haro bike collection

I remember when collecting old BMX bikes seemed a little bit kooky. I always thought it was cool, but I could never quite relate… until people started collecting bikes that I had personally lusted after, saved for, or learned tricks on in my childhood. The very first bike that made me decide that BMX was the best thing ever was the 1988 Haro Sport. I started raking leaves and shoveling snow, and before I knew it it was 1990, the Sport was temporarily gone, and I was buying the world’s first bashguard bike instead — $309 for the complete Haro Master from Frankford BMX mailorder.

John Buultjens is a true Haro loyalist in that his collection spans from the first freestyle bike to the last one Bob Haro designed before selling his company in 1993. And considering how Bob’s bikes are going for multi thousands on eBay these days, I should have raked a few more leaves and bought a few more bikes.

It’s rad to watch how the designs and graphics progress through the years. Take a trip.

22 Minutes of Haro in Australia

Here’s some good Sunday morning viewing. Haro in Australia.

At the end of 2010 a few of the Haro team riders headed to Australia to go down under for an adventure of a lifetime. Sun, sand, skateparks and all the fun you could fit into one trip. Landing in Sydney the guys headed off south through Canberra and Melbourne with a quick stop in Brisbane before checking in and heading home. Thanks to all the shops we were able to stop and visit and everyone we had the chance to ride and hangout with.
