The Come Up TV: Sam Schulte of Tree Bikes @ Interbike 2012.

We sat down with Sam Schulte from Tree Bikes on the the final day of Interbike 2012 to talk about the history of the brand and their plans for the future. Topics covered:

  • Sam runs through some of Tree’s new products
  • We talk about why Tree stopped making frames and their recent team additions
  • Derek Nelson
  • I ask Sam about learning to be a businessman (as opposed to just being a BMX rider and an artist) over the years in order to keep Tree afloat
  • Sam talks about the switch from American made to Taiwanese manufacturing
  • We discuss the legendary Tree sprocket and it’s long history
  • We talk more about the challenges in running a BMX company
  • I talk a little about how getting Alfredo involved changed The Come Up and opened the doors for us to grow and get better

  4. On ne les portera sans doute qu’un seul été, mais qu’importe, c’est aujourd’hui qu’on en a envie. Toujours en tête des ventes, le haut triangle, d’esprit seventies, ultra confortable pour les petites poitrines. Le modèle Swan d’Etam, couleur bleu jean, coulissé sur un lien et galonné de crochet écru affiche en outre l’argument d’un petit prix (30 euros). [.] Encore plus baba cool, le deux pièces Cancun d’Antik Batik en coton crocheté (42 euros) fera merveille à Ibiza. Spécial petite poitrine, le deux pièces triangle Cap Ferret non coulissant, à rayures marinière ciel et blanc de Princesse Tam Tam (39 euros le haut, 29 euros le bas) qu’on croirait tout droit sorti de la valise de Jane Birkin dans La Piscine. [.] Moins confortable que les matières stretch, mais tellement irrésistible. On peut aussi craquer pour un une pièce. Celui d’Ella Luna, blanc rayé géranium à bretelle cordage, évoque une allure années 1930 à la Jacques Henri Lartigue. porter avec une grande capeline de toile et des espadrilles. [.]

  5. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your site. It seems like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks

  6. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  7. This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  8. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  9. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Good blog!

  10. Hey! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  11. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  12. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  13. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
