In 2001 I was working in London as a bike courier by day, barman by night and bike shop salesperson both Saturday / Sundays.
Pretty Boy came into Evans Cycles where I worked and bought a pair of bull horn bars from me - ditching the brake from his bike and into the brakeless arena. It seemed daft to remove what seemed like such critical apparatus from a bicycle, but his style on a bike had allure like nothing else. No long after I had my first track bike.
To this day I can still remember riding down Gt Suffolk Street on it, and the feeling of being strapped to a rocket, and from that point on perfecting my skills much like Jonathan Livingstone Seagull.
Pretty Boy has always been about BMX and looking back it explains why he was so good on a track bike.
This is just one of his current little bikes. Frame by S&M, lots of titanium and some juice from Hell on Wheels.
When he's not riding and playing Dad, Pretty Boy makes custom bags, toe straps and other accesories under the skin grows back name. All made Down Under in Ulladulla.
