Day 4 in our 'Twelve days of Aitken’, which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, delves into Mike’s section in Square One’s first video “Up In Arms.” Closing out 2001 with another extended stay in Erie, Pennsylvania and enjoying all the newer indoor parks in the area like Section 8 and Shebang, as well as the expanded Buck’s trails, Mike casually filmed his second part of the year.
The Jersey Boy! We’ve been fans of this guy for years ever since he blessed the pages of DIG Magazine with his all black bike setup and East Coast chiller style. Watching Jeff Kocsis build his Still United section piece by piece was a pleasure and I’m sure you’ll agree he makes everything he does look just so. And you can’t beat that level of jive talk with many people - he’s your man for a hilarious time on the road.

Next up in our 'Twelve days of Aitken’, which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, is Mikey’s section in FIT’s inaugural video “F-It.” Mike kicked off 2001 with a new frame sponsor, which was a freshly-formed bike company that was spawned via S&M Bikes with fellow teammates and heavy hitters Brian Foster, Nate Hanson, Robbo, Justin Inman, and Edwin De La Rosa; him and the crew set FIT into full swing with the release of “F-It.” Mike blessed the video with a well-deserved closing section; one that helped put FIT on the map and set the bar for a soon-to-be legendary team in the coming years.

MIke Aitken Day 2 'The Beginning' (2000).

After 18 years my skate park, The Incline Club is officially closing down. I am sad to see it go but I can't help but smile when I think about all the amazing memories this place has given me and thousands of other people around the world! In this video I decided to find some old video of the amazing moments that I have had because of this skate park and relive them again with my YouTube channel!
Entertainment value is high. Kohl Denny has been pretty much killing the instagram game with his makeshift ramps and all around fucking awesome riding. So we're hyped to drop three minutes of him doing the same. "Grab your beers, grab your bikes, KEEP IT CORE."
