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

For the latest podcast from Snakebite BMX, Shad Johnson caught up with Haro‘s Brand Manager, John Buultjens, who has been running the show for about 3 years now. Shad and John talk a lot of history from the start leading all the way up to present day with all the ups and downs along the way. There’s no denying that Haro has definitely been back on its game lately and it’s safe to say that John had a big part of bringing the brand back to a core level that it lost over the years. Great interview and well worth a listen! Check it!
Snakebite just dropped Jack Maddock‘s section from the “Shola” DVD that came out back in 2008! This section is packed full of Jack’s buttery smooth style and some serious gaps and drops. What’s even crazier is that he was doing all this with a broken wrist! Wow… Talk about some serious desire to make this section happen and to get it done properly.
“What impressed me most about Jack’s section was the fact that he filmed the entire thing injured, very injured. All those drops and gaps were on his checklist, and regardless of his circumstance he came through and destroyed the streets of Seattle with a broken wrist.” – Bruce Crisman
Stoked to see this one surface finally! Snakebite just uploaded Bruce Crisman‘s section from his “Shola” video he produced back in 2008. This section has a mix of footage from the X-Games he crushed to street spots he brought his amazing freecoaster riding to. This is one BMX video you won’t want to pass up on!
“Bruce Crisman’s Shola part just feels so fluid to me. In the same way that Bruce made the move from X-games champion to a ground breaking street rider seem fluid. He has done it all with him just riding his bike the way he feels good about. Bruce makes things that are so hard look so smooth and that’s why he will be remembered for changing the game” – Shad Johnson / Snakebite
Snakebite dropped the Davey Watson section from Bruce Crisman’s “Shola” BMX video that came out back in 2009. This was right around the time Davey was hitting things the hardest, bringing his laid back, but gnarly style to spots. It’s crazy how good he was and unfortunate the path he ended up on later down the road. Either way, hit play and enjoy this!
“I met Davey when he was 15 going on 16 and by the time I had just 2 sessions with him I knew absolutely, without a doubt, that he was going to become something extraordinary within the BMX industry. I can’t say enough good things about him and his riding. I only advise that you watch this section loud and let Davey blow your mind with his style, originality and creativity that we are privileged to witness throughout the effort that he put forth to create this timeless video part.” – Bruce Crisman
