Here's a pretty cool QuickTime VR movie of a sprocket I made (the Simple Bikes Stockholm sprocket).
If you click and drag up/down you'll see it from different angles.

Jim Cielencki left KinkBMX and started a BMX/Skate shop called Sunday. Now Jim has started a bike company called Sunday so we had to fire off some questions to learn more about it all.
FATBMX: You recently started a BMX/skate shop. Was it always a dream to have your own shop?Jim Cielencki: Well, my partner J.P. and I have been talking about doing a shop for almost 8 years now, so I guess it was a dream. I have always hated going to shops where you couldn't find exactly what you wanted, the people were not riders and they were trying to nickel and dime you for the products. We all want instant gratification, so it is the best to be able to go and get a new video when you are bored. So yeah it was a dream, it is great and my video collection is getting bigger.
You've probably noticed we are running a poll on the FATBMX site. It's the first one we've ever done and we plan on doing new polls from time to time. You can't win anything by voting but you can make your vote count. You can find the poll in the left column. Just scroll down far enough. To avoid people voting 100 times on their favorite item, the voting system is set up to only enter your choice once. Enjoy this new feature and check back for new polls in the next couple of weeks.
The current FATBMX poll is: This is what I ride
Your answers can be: Street, vert, race, dirt, park, flatland. It's possible to hit more than one box if you ride dirt and park for instance.

Last year Fly Bikes' owner David Quesada closed his office and started running FlyBikes from the road. Spending time on the bike and directly with the riders was the best way to get feedback and work on new products. With the help of Alvaro's camper the Fly Bikes team spent some serious time on the road. Then when the winter arrived, the crew flew over to New-Zealand to do some filming and lots of riding. With the help of a laptop computer and internet access, you can work from anywhere, even from the NZ beach. In the picture you see David taking a break and getting his surf on. Now throw a shakka!
