New kid on the blog - Mark Westlake!


Ok, you may have noticed the a new name attached to most of the recent blog posts. Yes, we have a new blogger! Welcome Mr Mark Westlake, of Dissrm fame and contributor to many other articles/pictures scattered over the interweb! I can't actually remember how I got to know Mark. I seem to remember being introduced to him by James Noyce like almost 2 years ago...

Anyways, if theres something new in BMX, chances are Mark will know about it. And now we've managed to get him to share his knowledge on the Pijin blog! This of course means the Pijin blog gets updated a bit more regularly (me being a bit erratic on my updates and the rest of the Pijin staff can't be arsed. LoL)

Being from the Westlake clan, he's just a little bit of a street rider too!

Welcome to the Pijin blog Mark!


Mark obviously loves his bike very much... so much so that it gets its very own bed to sleep in!

I seem to remember it was either that meeting, or from when I first spoke to you about getting an Odyssey wheel off you? Back in the day either way, kudos to Mr. Noyce for introducing me to the joys of Pijin anyway ;-)
