CHAD PHAIRE


WHAT CITY WERE YOU BORN IN? DESCRIBE HOME LIFE.
I was born in East New Jersey, home life is chill.

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP AND WHAT WAS IT LIKE THERE?
I grew up in jersey, later moved to Bethlehem, P.A and now living in Harlem, NYC. Growing up in Jersey was rough, there was no way you could ride your bike without having a group of kids chase you or someone wanting to fight, so street smarts came quick living out there.
Living in the BETH was fun! The scene is on point, from being the only bike rider in East Orange, NJ, living in PA was a new experience. Riding with other riders was new for me and not having to watch my back was a bonus. Every rider is into their own thing out there. I think the coolest thing living in the BETH was the fact that my English teacher was related to Chris Stauffer.
I'm currently living in Harlem, NYC, I wouldn't want to live any place else. The scene is amazing,the spots are on point and NY is on top of the game.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING BESIDES RIDING THE BIKE? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OUTDOOR ACTIVITY?
I'm into music, so you can catch me downloading music for my iPod and chilling with my NY crew on a regular. I’m into tennis so you can find me at the US Open every year, possibly getting the ball over the net. I’m also into the city and art, so it’s not unusual to find me strolling downtown looking at things.

HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU NOTICED BMX RIDING?
My father taught me how to ride a bike at the age of four. Since that day I always had a bike. When I turned 9, I started to do little things like take one foot off the pedal when I would go down a hill or I would stand on my top tube just to see if it was possible and I loved it. I thought I was the only one in the world doing what I was doing. It wasn't until I turned 14, my uncle told me to check out a magazine that had guys doing the craziest tricks on bikes. I read it and here I am today.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I like to spend time with my baby sis, Leilani Achoe, customize my bike (I’m always doing something to it) and chill.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FONDEST MEMORIES WHEN THE CREW IS IN NYC?
Chill, crack jokes, SCRUMPTIOUS and have the best time.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITES?(color, food, book, movie, song, etc.)
The best color is GREEN. Chinese. Anything having to do with the world and Illuminati. Can't pick a song, only music, which is Neo soul and hip hop anything that sounds good. Nikes, v necks, denim jeans.

TELL ME ABOUT A MEMORABLE MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE; A TIME YOU WILL NEVER FORGET.
I was 15 years old, I’m leaving Mullaly, my local park in the Bronx. I hop over a chain, next thing I know I’m knocked out in the street, with skin missing from my four head, brand new Nastazio Vans are stolen off my feet and my girlfriend passing my teeth to the medic.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHANGES IN OUR SOCIETY THAT YOU HAVE SEEN IN YOUR LIFETIME?
Being more open-minded.

WHAT ARE SOME HISTORICAL EVENTS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED IN YOUR LIFETIME?
Barack Obama, oil spill and the recession.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS IN LIFE?
Drake said it the best "Do right and kill everything"

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST MINI CULT TRIP LIKE AND HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE A PART OF SUCH A WAVY CREW?
The mini trip was a great experience and the beginning of something new. To be a part of a company that Robbie Morales founded is nothing more than a blessing and unbelievable opportunity. Cheers to Rob O.
