Name: Rachel Jones Sponsors: Remix BMX Mechanic: Myself
Remix, for those who have no clue, can you tell us a little about that brand? Rachel Jones: Remix BMX is a wheel company that is owned out in Reno by Dale Robsinson. However, it is a little different to your standard carbon wheel brands. They’re complete carbon wheel sets, fixed with a 32h Remix carbon rim, a Remix straitpull sealed bearing hub and aero blades spokes, weighing in at around 3lbs. The idea behind Remix is bringing the current innovation from MTB and Road into BMX Race (That is essentially where the name Remix comes from). If you really take a look into it, the engineering is pretty awesome.
So for a frame, could you choose whatever you wanted to ride on? Rachel Jones: I can choose whatever frame I would like to ride on, this season I went for a Speedco Pro (white/black)
Did you really want to race on a carbon frame, or would aluminium work just as well, you think?
Name: Emilio Falla Sponsors: J &R Bicycles, Speedco, Avían, Odi, Tioga, TroyLeeDesigns. Mechanic: I try to do everything myself, I still have to learn how to build a wheel.
How long have you been riding the SpeedCo frame that you are currently on? Emilio Falla: I’ve had this bike since February
How many BMX bikes do you think you've had during your career? Emilio Falla: That’s a good question, so I’m going to say around 30 to 35. I started young in the sport.
You have probably gone from Cro-Moly to Aluminium to Carbon. Does weight matter much to you? Emilio Falla: I believe weight matters the most when you are a kid, now for me the most important thing is trying to get comfortable and the right setup.
