Colin Winkleman has started a bmx parts/components company called Circus. His plan is to make parts that are of the highest quality that is in his power to design and produce. With past experience designing parts for DK, Colin thinks he has a good grasp on what it takes to make some advancements in BMX tech.
Colin: "I also realize that being injured for 6 months now, with the rapid pace of innovation in the industry, it's not entirely possible for me to keep a fresh perspective without being on my bike traveling and seeing all the aspects of bmx I'm usually exposed to on a daily basis.
SO, all that rambling basically means that I need some input from riders. Despite not having so much as t-shirts produced yet (they're close) I've got a team together to help me bring Circus out with their input."
The Circus team as it stands right now is:
> Stephen Lilly
> Colin Mackay
> Will Love
> Ian Schwartz
Colin's really excited about these guys being a part of Circus: "They all have very unique styles of riding and that's important to me because I want Circus to be a company that takes consideration of all types of riding when designing parts. I'll be taking input from these guys to design the first line of Circus parts instead of just coming out with an array of copycat parts with a different logo."
P.S. Did you guys hear about the fire at the Circus?
-It was intense.P.P.S. I'm still healing and trying to get my ankles back in shape from the van ramp wreck. I've been up and able to walk for a while now, at first only with crutches but, it wasn't long 'till I could walk without them. My main problems now are a chunk of bone on the bottom of my right foot that makes it feel like I'm standing on a piece of gravel, and the lack of flexibility in my left one. I'm doin' good enough now to walk without people wondering...What's he got stuck up his ass? That is, just without limping. hehe. But it'll still be a while before I can ride properly.
