Number one isn’t too exciting. Like many kids, my first bike was a department store Huffy BMX bike. For a bicycle enthusiast, I actually learned to ride a lot later than most kids—it’s actually embarrassing. That said, when I did learn to ride I didn’t stop. I remember seeing the BMX movie, Rad and realizing I wasn’t going to get anywhere with a coaster brake! It wasn’t long before I tried to remove it myself. As a young kid I obviously didn’t know what I was doing and ended up with a back hub that randomly slipped. To be honest, I am impressed I actually got it back together!
