2 years ago somebody on Facebook probably asked you about this Tim Knoll guy. That's usually how it goes when a BMX rider goes outlandishly viral these days anyway. Tim has racked up an astonishing number of views with his unique breed of flatland, street and performance art. Despite having one of the most popular BMX videos in the history of YouTube, most people don't know much about Tim, myself included. He mentioned that he would be in town for a flatland jam and so of course I had to get him over the OSS store for an interview. I learned a lot and we had a great conversation about BMX, The Internet and everything in between. Enjoy!
