The craziest BMX story (riding/party/anything)?

Some of the LUX trips from when the shop first opened were pretty wild, we had a real good time.

If you could do one trick only for the rest of time, what would it be?

Thats a tough one, I think just ripping around a bowl as fast as possible would keep me going.

If you had to listen to 3 albums for the rest of your life what would the soundtrack be?

The war on drugs

What’s the most influential BMX DVD you have watched?

Props 61

What was your favorite section on that DVD?

Brandon Hoerres bio, what a weapon!

Ride a bike just like Justy with LUXBMX's Sunday bikes pro bike builder!

Finally, Did you ever think picking up that bike all those years ago would have turned into a life long obsession?

Definitely not, I owe a lot to my BMX, places traveled, people met, some life long friendships I’ll cherish forever.
