Through The Lens: Eating Raw with Sam Schulte
Sam Schulte owns Tree Bikes which most of you have certainly heard of before and has quite the history in the BMX industry as an innovator and incredible product designer. Sam started Tree with the intent of creating parts that have solid thought behind them and builds products that are meant to last. He always has the consumer in mind and doesn’t feel right if he has to “sell” his products. Anyone that knows Tree knows that the stuff they make is 100% quality based and completely BMX to the core. On that note, anyone that knows Sam, knows that he has always had a unique outlook on life and truly lives according to his own rules and what he feels is right for his own life. There are a few people out there these days blazing their own path and making their own personal life choices and Sam Schulte is certainly one of them. He maintains a positive state of mind, carefully chooses what goes into his body and has a specific reason and purpose for doing so. Check out what motivates Sam to eat a fully raw diet and maybe learn a thing or two in the process.

Tree Bicycle Co. – Staycation / Vacation STL / NY Flipbook
Now this looks like it was a proper BMX road trip.

After the first week we loaded up the van in rout to good times at the Postapocoly,pics in New York, set to pick up a few more guys and explore upper Ny State. Everyones phones were documenting every step of our journey on Instagram, and this flipbook is a congolmeration of many of those images chronicling the journey.” – Tree Bicycle Co.
Tree – Fat Ergo Seat Preview
I’ve always been a big fan of how Tree does things. This video of Tree’s owner, Sam Schulte, giving you all the info about their new Fat Ergo seat they are working on with a look at just how they went about making it is real interesting. Take a peek!
“After we managed to make the average slim seat more comfortable with the slim version of the Ergo seat, we thought we would fatten it up to make it a better seat with fatter foam for everyone out there who needs it for no handers, bar spins, or just sitting on it. The process was more involved than just scaling up the idea to get it right. We hand shaped this seat to be the most comfortable seat out there for street ramp or whatever you want. The seat will be available around Christmas, so keep an eye out for the final look at the production version in action!”
