BMX – TCU TV – Tony Neyer Interview. Tony talks his new shop, his career in BMX and more. Subscribe! http://bit.ly/1gYdZLu
You could basically split this interview into two parts, although it’s not particularly structured. The first part focuses on Thee Block, Tony’s new shop he just opened along with Aaron Brenner, Eben Fischer and Morgan Long. The second, his illustrious riding career dating from the Shine days all the way up to Tony’s Ride cover from last year. Along the way we discussed the intricacies of Ohio BMX culture, I quizzed Neyer on some of his most notable bangers and we told some truly tasteless tales about our time spent together as roommates a few years back.
