Mike is a BMX professional, a welder, a machinist, a father, and a heavy metal music enthusiast. Regardless of what roll he’s playing he is the man behind building one of the best custom frames in BMX. Built from a simple idea, his frames are one of the most sought after products in BMX. Mike walks us through his beginnings in BMX, to turning Professional and how that has transitioned him into crafting his custom frames.

I also did a post a few years back recommending using a golf bag. I’m not sure if it really matters these days but golf bags used to be the favourite for travelling BMXers. The reason being is to avoid any extra charges, for some retarded reason air lines will often charge for extra bags but let golf clubs on for free (which is bullshit).. so packing your bike into a golf bag is a nice little loop hole to avoid any extra charges.
Definitely check out Joe’s guide, it has some good pointers for sure.
Time for some sweet videos!
