6 questions for Chester Blacksmith

I found out a lot of interesting and unexpected things by asking 6 questions to Chester Blacksmith over on IPath BMX. Turns out Chester learned how to survive in the outdoors way before it was cool.

New Merit Site

Our boy Jason Eichhorst has revived his Merit Compatibles website with a new focus on original content. For one of his first features he was kind enough to do a feature on my old bike and car, a sort of throwback to three Summers ago when we did the exact same thing for the same site (different bike, different car).  There’s also a cool feature on photographer Jeff Brown and a long-term product test/review of the IPath Gall shoe.

IPATH BMX

My longtime friend Tim Swart has been working with IPATH, and recently asked me to assemble and manage a BMX team for them. So here we are. Joining me on the IPATH BMX program are Jim Bauer, Andrew Jackson, Brian Yeagle and Dave Thompson, who is pictured above wearing the Gall shoe (photo by Jason Eichhorst).

I’ve always been impressed by their use of sustainable materials and business practices, and by the way IPATH stays IPATH with an unmistakable look. For those reasons I was excited for the opportunity to get involved and hook up some deserving riders. Stay tuned for more.
