15 Dec Canadian BMX Company History – Andrew MacLeod & System BMX (2003 to 2019)

Back in 2018 I was on a No Bikes trip visiting Matt Thomas’s compound in Alberta. As we were warming up on the garage mini ramp, one guy really caught my eye – mohawk haircut, splatter painted bike with a bunch of unique parts and most importantly a front brake. Oh, and he could ride the crap out of the mini. He clearly had his own style and I struck up a conversation. His name was Andrew MacLeod and it turned out he was also a machinist. Andrew had been making BMX parts in Edmonton for years. The paint job was done by a friend, but all the unique-looking parts on his bike were of his own design and make. Andrew has been dreaming up unconventional designs since middle school; just look at his notebook sketches. As part of our series on the history of Canadian BMX companies, Justin Schwanke and I sent Andrew some questions to learn about his brand, System. Without further ado, I present to you the guy that learned flairs in his mid-thirties, Andrew MacLeod!   -Kostya Chimkovitch

Constantly putting in work, Connor was stoked to take on a Recruits section for us with pal and legendary Calgary filmer, Austin Odegnal. We chatted with Connor about a bunch of things including his summer, filming for this video, and currently being in Barcelona. Photos by Austin Odegnal and Matthew Macleod.

21 Oct Canadian BMX Company History: Jason Fisher & Wasted Life Cycles

For the next installment of Canadian BMX company history, I briefly got a hold of an enigmatic and elusive individual from Calgary by the name of Jason Fisher. He was somewhat reluctant to talk about his undertaking, Wasted Life Cycles. However, we managed to exchange a few questions and answers before Jason disappeared off of social media. I would consider this the ethos of an underground BMX brand. Read on for a short interview with Jason.
