If you’ve been following me through Instagram, Twitter or Facebook then you might’ve noticed that I’ve moved back to my hometown of Buffalo, NY. Seems sort of weird since Sunday Bikes headquarters are in Austin, TX, right? Well, with modern technologies, I’m able to do all of my Sunday work away from Austin. I spend a good portion of my year on the road anyway, so living in Buffalo won’t be much different. My move is based around being closer to my family and friends. Nothing has changed with my role at Sunday. It’s great being back on the east coast, so don’t be surprised if I show up at more east coast events.
Recently, we hooked up Will Lueth with a brand new Rooster frame and Octave forks. Will’s from the Buffalo, NY area and as you might be able to see has an amazing trail set up in his backyard. Can’t wait to ride it this spring!

The end of May is a great time to be in Buffalo, this pool in the photo is mostly drained and is totally ridable! You can pretty much go as fast as you want and carve the whole main wall. You are able to air it and pocket air the corners along with so much other stuff. Don’t fall because it might as well be covered with sandpaper. In the photo, I’m hopping over the diving board thing and into the vert. Right after we shot this photo, the cops booted us out. I’ll be back next May!
We are presenting the world premiere for our new video Up, Up and Away in Buffalo tonight! Hope you can join us, but if not scroll down and look to the right. There’s a whole big list of premieres that you might be able to make it to!
This is sort of old news around Buffalo, but I’ve parted ways (on good terms) from the Sunday SkateBMX shop that I help co-found back in 2005. Go over to RideBMX and read the interview I did with Jeff Z about moving on. I’ve been trying to settle into a new office, so look for a photo tour soon.
