Mark Potoczny is a rad dude. There’s plenty of good times that I’ve had because of him and his brother, and I’m sure a lot of other people can say the same. When I found out he was working on a signature frame from Deluxe, I hit up Mark to see if he would be into talking a little bit about the frame and the process for creating his first signature frame with Deluxe. Check out what he had to say along with some photos that I shot during the Welcome Jam this past summer, then let him know what you think in the comments!
Well, 2010 is over and 2011 is already underway. Starting the year off right with a fresh new interview for you. A week or so ago I was talking to Mark Noble about what has been going on with Deluxe these days and he mentioned that he was working on a new frame with Max. I’ll admit that I don’t know a lot about the scene in France, so I figured that it was a perfect excuse to ask Max some questions and find out more about him. It turns out Max had quite a bit to say and I did my best to clean up his english a little bit. Check out what he had to say, along with some real good photos and a few edits. We’re off to a good start for 2011…

Alright, today got off to a quick/rough start after last night. Had a few issues like leaving my cable for my camera to plug into my computer in my room to slow me down! However, I’m on it now. My first stop of the morning was to say hey to Mark Noble and check out what Deluxe has going on for this year. Take a peek…
“We test our stuff for a long time before we bring them out, and Davros’s bike has a few prototype parts on it – all the blue stuff you see here is prototype and on test now…”
It’s crazy how if you stay in BMX long enough, you get to watch brands start out and grow. Deluxe is one of those newer brands that has seen some growth since its start just a few short years ago. I figured it was due time to catch up with Mark Noble to see what he has going on with the brand these days, and where he sees things going. Give it a read and let us know what you think in the comments…
A few months back I was talking to Mark Noble about what he had going on with Deluxe these days… well, those days. He mentioned that he was having the team get together for a little UK trails tour that they were going to be filming for a DVD. There’s a few reasons I was stoked about that news. The first was that Deluxe was making an all trails edit, and the second was that I’m well aware of how dialed some of the trails are in the U.K.
About a week ago a copy of the DVD showed up in my mail box, and this is what I thought of “Welcome to Deluxe”…
I got the chance to check these Deluxe grips out at Interbike two months back and was into the idea of running some thicker grips. I got an email shortly after the convention from Mark saying he had them in stock and I was lucky enough to get a pair off him. So I’ve been riding the grips for a few weeks now and I think I got a solid idea of how these grips are….
