The latest episode of Snakebite‘s Podcast series that Shad Johnson produces catches up with Keith Treanor to talk a TON of history. Keith has been riding BMX longer than most of you guys reading this probably have been alive, and he rode for, and worked for a number of brands in this industry of ours. Needless to say, this interview covers a TON of ground and there’s a TON of hilarious stories from start to finish. Hit play and enjoy!
“Keith Treanor has been around. From being a team rider on S&M in the early nineties to his involvement with Menstural Cycles (one of the first spin-off brands from a core bike company). From stand out parts in legendary videos like Dirty Deeds and S&M BMX Inferno (a part which he hated). From being a visitor to an early Backyard Jam in the UK (a trip which had a huge impact on him and those he met along the way) to being a regular focus of UK based print mags the time. From eventually moving from Southern California to Florida and working with UGP, and then at a much later stage moving to OKC and working with Hoffman Bikes and then eventually back to So Cal to work with Volume/Demolition and eventually Colony Bikes where he is today. And somewhere in between all of this he’s battled with some serious addiction issues. Yep, Keith Treanor has been around and knows more about our world of BMX than most.
Late in 2015 we sat down with a full room of friends including ,Vince Kroff, Evan Lane, Paul Covey and more and got Keith to tell some stories after a long weekend of riding. We go in to his early days on S&M, filming with Dave Parrick, being a Sprocket Jockey, his battle with alcohol, and how he found his way back to BMX. This is a great listen.” – DIG
