It looks like Taj Mihelich has finally got his new Fairdale 26 bike all dialed in for everyone to get their hands on. Hit this link to learn all about this bike if you’re looking to get yourself another set of wheels that are a little bit bigger. I want one!
In the last 5 years I don’t think I’ve ever covered anything that wasn’t a “BMX bike” but I think we all consider Fairdale a BMX brand since it’s owned by Taj Mihelich and run by a bunch of BMX riders. That’s more than enough for me to support it. I finally made my way over to their booth to take a few photos. Let’s take a peek.
Looking back over the years, it’s kind of crazy how things happen. I was probably around 14 or 15 the first time I met Sandy Carson. It was at an Etnies Demo if I remember right. After that I some how ended up emailing him and to my surprise he responded and was always really friendly to this random kid for reasons I never understood. Over the years, I’ve stayed in touch with Sandy for different things and it’s always awesome catching up with him since he’s always getting into something completely different and unique whether it’s bikes, photos or music. It had been a little while since I hit him up and figured with the release of his revamped portfolio website, SandyCarson.com, a little while back that it would be a good time to see if he would be up for answering a few questions and sending through some photos for you to check out. Let’s see what he had to say, then check out a quick Photogallery…
Name: Sandy Carson
The first round of Taj Mihelich’s Fairdale bikes have hit Full Factory. These single speed commuter bikes are ready right out of the box as an alternate to trying to ride across town on your BMX. You can get a closer look at the bikes by hitting these links – Parser Black and Parser Express. If you’re a shop looking to get one, hit the Full Factory Store.
(New Aaron Ross Colorway. Orange everything.)
I was a little caught off guard when I saw the Odyssey booth everyone knows and loves wasn’t on the floor. That’s because they have a new booth (without benches!) that is mixed with Sunday, Flatware, and the new Taj project Fairdale all combined into one booth as the Full Factory Distribution booth. So let’s take a peek, there’s a few new goodies in here…
