The OS-BMX Interviews - Chris Moeller ~ S&M BMX

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Chris Moeller for his time and patience with this interview process. Thanks to Jake (Spur) for initiating this very enlightening project and keeping it on track throughout. Thanks to Ryan Partridge for his contributions to the interview (be sure to check Ryan's excellent blog devoted completely to S&M). Thanks to all the guys who posted S&M stuff on the site and who have been discussing it all in the mid-school forum - Nbl 49a and kcmobmx, Da G Ryde, Dingobmxer and others as well, we didn't have space and time to work all the great material available into a mere 10 pages... but, Jake and I both appreciate the dedication and effort some of you have been contributing to the S&M thread and the mid-school forum in general.

 

This was a very enjoyable project for me. Moeller is cool. A very gracious and accomodating guy. S&M freakin' rules... recognize!

Big ups again to Jake for asking good questions to draw the collecting science out into the open. We haven't really had an interview with that component before. Good to have.

Gahh! The words are so tiny. If I try t omake it through another paragraph my mind is going to explode. Anyway we can do something about that?

Judging by the first sentence I read it outta be a good interview.

Hm. Did you click on the pages? They should open up to 800 px wide or roughly 40% larger than they appear in the condensed form, which is pretty big.

After you click on them and they open you need to click a second time to blow them up at least that's what I have to do for mine...

Otherwise I have the same problem

I suddenly feel like I need an early Dirt Bike or Challenger.

 

Steve, I think I know how much you like S&M bikes and it really shows in this article. The intro has to be your best so far. Keep it up! I enjoy these greatly.

What are you talking about, Lee? That is totally unbiased and neutral old school journalism there! :wink:

 

 

I know a lot of the Old School guys don't take interest in S&M because they only began in 87 or so... but I'm telling you, you are missing out by not not taking a look at this S&M phenomenon. It's one of the great BMX stories.

 

American made goodness, offered by our kind of people... I just have a lot of respect for them.

The interview turned out rad!

 

My only questions were about porn. :)

 

 

Yes, but important questions about porn.

Damn if only we could obtain that much info on each and every company! Glad he took the time to answer all those questions, even the tedious ones. Much respect for S&M.

 

On another note the late 80s, into the early 90s were an end for many things, and a beginning for many more. Think about how skateboarding, BMX, Hip Hop, all these things had almost revolutions, or atleast big changes paving the way for new styles and companies. Very interesting times indeed. I think people will look back in 10, 20 years and still feel these specific years were key in these aspects.

This has been an extremely popular interview. The interesting thing is... most of the readers have been non-members, people who came to the site specifically to read this interview. The only interview that has more views is the Jeff Utterback interview, and it has been up for a long time. But this one has been kindly mentioned in a couple of bmx blogs and on the S&M site, so it piqued some additional interest. (edit: this has long since become the most read interview on the site).

 

I just wanted to say hello to the visitors, who clearly know what time it is, and invite you guys to join us here... discerning people are always welcome.

 

:cheers:

Cool interview! I just picked up an S&M .38 special replete with all Profile components off of craigslist. If I told you how much I paid for it, you'd hate me. This bike handles like a dream and in my first race on it, I kicked all the mens' asses in 40-44 cruiser. ;)
