I've always wanted to try and start my own company so I was wondering if you had any advice or tips on doing so? Also this might be kinda the same thing but how exactly do you start company like if i wanted to start my own parts company what's some things I should check out or look for if that makes sense. Sorry for the long question.

What's up with Paul B.? Will he have a part in the new video, if there is one.? Your part in Grounded was amazing! Just proves you don't have to do the lastest freecoasting trick to put out an amazing part. That is truley what BMX is.

Joe, thanks for everything. I sent you an email regarding my brand new Barcode. I love it, my question is, will you be making any changes to it for 08? If so, book me for an all black one, 20.6. I will be buying a Barcode every year from now on....T-1 4 life...

why did it take so long for t-1 stuff to be sold on dans? support your local bike shop CIRCUITBMX.COM
any way t1 frames are the best been running them since 04. 21 barcode, 20.3 ruben(witch was the best size ever.) and this year 20.6 hickerson/moody love the frame but want a smaller size.

Its because he is in the middle of airing out a quarter. It will take a while for him to come down. Keep going high Joe!

I was actually talking about that with Stu the other day. I'm not filming a full part or anything like that, but I believe there is to be a section full of the dudes from the first one. A few tricks each. Good times !

Wow, that's amazing ! Better yet, you pretty much summed up my whole vision with doing that video. There is so much that can come with riding a bike. Stuff that people who don't ride would never think of when they see a kid on a bmx. Little do they know . . . that was one hell of a time man . . . thanks for the cool words.

The world tour was a dream come true. I can remember when I was actually buying all the plane tickets and thinking, " what the fuck, this is really going to happen ?! " It was the right timing for it all. We all could make it happen at that time in our lives, and we seized the moment so to say. I wouldn't trade those 200 days for anything. yeah, it was 200 ! Seeing something brand new every day for that long will change your entire life. You can't help but see life differently.

South Africa was probably the country that had the most impact on me. It was amazing. Almost impossible to put into words. But the people there are incredible and the country is so beautiful. They have one hell of a riding scene there these days as well. You will be so happy that you booked that ticket for yourself. I'd say try to see as much of the country as possible. Do everything ! But then again, that last sentence is something i try and do as much as possible. Ryan Worcester however, is the definition of those words !

All that I know is that if you are putting your time in, you can do things however you want to. I don't feel right to judge someone on that. Because how can you criticize how someone wants to ride their bikes? . . . Personally, I'm a fan of the tranny these days more than anything. But I think that the longer you are riding for, the more natural it is to get into different aspects of what you are riding. In the end though, it feels so good to be able to go anywhere and not think, " I don't ride this, I only ride this ! " To me, being well rounded with riding, will make for some better days for everyone.

Yep, that's my plan. But once again, don't expect it to be like the norm. Its not going to be a "rider section" vid or a random montage either. This one is going to be pretty out there, and fun,but I think many will be able to relate to it.
I haven't really started on it yet, still getting ideas with what I want to do.

In my opinion, the most positive part of anything is "change" in itself. Even though the best times in your mind may have passed, I think change is necessary for you to even realize that those times were the best. Its hard to really wrap yourself entirely around the best of times as they are happening. Looking back on them, always makes them better. As for the most negative, that would be tough to answer. If anything, I feel that people are more worried about what everyone else is doing more these days. They base their decisions on their reaction to others. Rather than just thinking along their own path. Maybe the internet is at fault for that. It brings too much of the "now" to the table. And it puts everyone in a frenzy. There is nothing left to wonder about . . . and to me that's sad.

I don't even know what to say to this . . . I think thanks though !Ha ha ha, maybe that's why the girl jean trend never appealed to me. Function before fashion . . . . isn't that what they say ?

in my eyes you're the original "consistently go big" guy .. quarter pipes, spines, hips especially. whats it like looking at all the younger riders (chase hawk ect.) kind of molding a recognizable style and trend thats largely influenced by you?

The first person I ever saw that I was amazed by was a guy named Gabriel that rode for Kuwahara. I went to their summer tour in 87 and saw him roasting a quarter pipe. Right then and there is what made me want to start riding. As I got into it more, I looked up to Jay Longergan the most. He was a guy from my neighborhood that was a super good racer but could ride anything. Today he is someone I still look up to, hang out with, and am grateful to have as a friend. Then came Ron Wilkerson and Matt Hoffman. God Damn is all I have to say. I had those 2 plastered all over the walls in my room.

The era that surrounded the first Road Fools was nothing short of amazing. There was alot of progression around that time and we weren't really sure even what we were doing. Just having fun and being like, " I guess I'll try this now ! " I had only lived in Austin about 2 months before going on that trip. Me and Taj had just got done filming for Anthem and were still in that mode. We would go riding every day and trade off every other day with who was going to be primarily riding that day, and who was filming. It was a good way to stay motivated. Road Fools just felt like a continuation of that. It was good times from start to finish. But it seemed more like we were all just having a session without thinking so much that it was actually being filmed. Because there was nothing prior for us to base it on. If we drove all day, cool, if we rode street, cool, if we wanted to ride jumps all day and the biggest tricks were 270's, turndowns, and x-ups, then fuck yeah it was a good day. Looking back on it all now seems nuts. To have been a part of it all . . . I can remember so much of it like yesterday.

These days, I like watching people smile when they ride. People that do stuff because it really feels good. I got a pretty long list, but here are just a few that come to mind . . . Ruben (probably my favorite of all time), Chase Hawk, Logan Balbirona, Coco Zurita, Jay Lonergan, Mr Byrnes, Russell Brindley, Chris Hallman, BF, Aitken. Yeah . . . those dudes rule.
