These days BMX contains a small, but growing doomsday cult who have made it perfectly clear that they aren’t happy with the current state of things. Although they rarely specify exactly what is wrong, these people seem convinced that some combination of flat ledges, iPhones and social media have unalterably changed our little thing for the worse.
Charlie Crumlish on the other hand isn’t so convinced that the apocalypse is coming. Why would he be? His signature Tallboy frame means that he is now one of the select few riders to have been honored by BMX’s foremost institution, S&M Bikes. He continues to progress his own brand of technical street riding beyond what anyone once thought possible and the decade or so he has spent burrowing deeper and deeper into his audiovisual wormhole has earned him not just an entirely unique style of video editing (what else would you compare this to?) but an unexpected foray into music production with some assistance from DJ Smokey. People spend a lot of time talking about positivity and creativity, but Crumlish is living it. He’s doing his own thing, having fun and progressing in his own way, on his own time, and as of late he’s been doing it on his own bike too. So what’s all this fire and brimstone talk for?
