Andy Smith Interview

Andy Portrait_600x

Over the past two years or so, we have been becoming increasingly familiar with a new brand from Arizona called Freed Bikes. For those of you that don’t know, Freed is a brand that focuses on U.S made products like frames, bars and sprockets, which in an industry like BMX has been increasingly difficult to make happen. One of the questions we hear pretty frequently is “who owns Freed?”, so we figured it was due time to get to know the guy who is in charge of the reigns of this brand who, thanks to a little help from his family, currently runs the company while going to college full-time… Let’s find out a little bit more about just what Andy is all about!

Name: Andy Smith

Photogallery: 2014 New England Jam Chowda

22_600x

Every year there are hundreds of BMX jams and events that happen all over the place. Out of all of those events, there are only a handful that have grown into something much bigger. This past weekend, the 3rd annual New England Jam Chowda went down and, much like the previous two, there was a lot of hype going into it because of how good of an event it really is and you know it didn’t disappoint. We heard rumors last year that this jam was the final one, so we wanted to make sure it was documented! Our friend and photographer, Nick Nogueira, made his way to the jam where he spent the day taking photos of everything from the riding on the ramps to the flatland jam that went down and ended up with a ton of great photos. We pieced together 30 of his best shots featuring the likes of Trey Jones, Paul Barnum, Chad DeGroot, Jake Seeley, Brett Tocco, John Mayo, Eric Hennessey and many more into a photogallery for you guys to enjoy! Take a peek because this might be the last time (we hope not) that this jam happens!
