I just wanted to call attention to my awesome buddy Brad Downie’s accomplishment of landing the gig of running the forthcoming site at 26fixed.com. Phil Rinthalukay, who co-runs Cultur, put out an open audition of sorts for the job of running what could become a really awesome site. He was offering free hosting and the URL he just needed the right person/people to take it on. When I heard about it from Phil my first thoughts were of both Brad and Swoo, but since Swoo already has a pretty successful thing going and since Brad is about to have a year off I suggested they have a chat.
Brad is a mechanic at a cool bike shop in Hamilton, a suburb of Toronto, and knows *everything* about bikes and tricks and 26″ specific nerdery. His bike is always so dialed and tricked out and he also happens to slay on his bike. The first day I met him he was doing hop bars out of nowhere and he’s been cool and rock solid ever since. I’m glad this has happened for him!
