A Chad DeGroot bike company?
Here it is, I can finally say what is going on. The site will still go on, sorry it has been slow. But I have been working a ton on launching my new company called "Deco.". We have t-shirts, amazing hats, stickers, and other unmentionables. Might as well tell you about the name, sounds like Baco. Which is sweet, but it comes from my last name "DeGroot" and "company" put together...Deco. Pretty simple, that is what I like. Expect some good products and some questionable shirts. If you lucky enough to be attending Interbike, come by my booth and check out my new stuff. There will be two hot girls passing out free hats and stickers all 3 days. Feel free to bring me beer anytime, Interbike tends to get long and a cold frosty one will pass the time nicely. Here are some pics of the products. This is the start, so sit tight. Some things are still being worked out. Feel free to click PRODUCTS tab to see more details of products. ESPN did a lil interview as well... Frames: Skatepark meets flatland inspired frames. This is WAY to comfortable and good looking for one person. Go ahead and try two, might need a side cart and a monkey. Who is making the rules? some BMX Succubus? Discover yourself or who you want to be. Be a monkey, make rules, succumb to the Succubus (its only a dream), or just do it cause if feels right. FuBars: People want things that are inspired from the 4 piece handlebar feel, the 2 piece "FuBars" have the look and feel you want. Made from Multi-butted chromoly, these bad boys will let you hold the metal you have needed since you listened to Iron Maiden. Forks: It was a game I have always played. Why pretend it's impossible. Call them Forks, call them necessary on your bike?...Inspired with front brakes in mind, these steep 28mm rake FU-Forks come with with removable 990 tabs. These bad boys will help your nose wheelies, with our without front brakes. Don't be an Embarrassment to front wheel tricks. Do that front wheel boogie. Cables: Unfortunately we all can't rely on the rear brakes. Silly Slick cables designed for front brake use. Not linear. Your not doing bar spins trying to figure out which way to wind up. You can try, but we took the guess work out of knowing which cable to use with front brakes. My spies will tell you, "Slick-ISH Cables in the front Bro." Thanks Spies... Intended for front brake use or mild rear brakes. Doing a million bar spins is never good for any cable. They invented the rotor or the new style, no brakes (which I figured out meant no cables). Do the math. Hats: In the olden days, people were hired to hold a cover over ones head. These days, hats are all hands free. Still a great idea having a partner managing what falls on your head, but a little silly don't you think? Whether your balding, graying, or haven't decided what hair style fits you. These hats will let you think of more important things, like enhancing your mustache.
