1979 DOB: june 1st, 1979.

early years Bruce: My first bike was a Huffy. I was really into Flatland riding for the first two years and I always wanted to be the raddest flatlander. I was pretty competitive as a kid, so my friends and I were competitive between ourselves. Unfortunately, my friends were more jumpers so I kinda got out of flatland and started jumping and riding street.

They understand the fact that I like to ride a custom bike... basically what I'm comfortable with, because I'm not just going to run anything that I don't trust my life with.
