… if you’ve ever wondered what makes this dude tick, then you’ve gotta read this interview over at Folly for gems like this:

“The name Tytanium actually first came from an old friend of mine Brian Terada. He made a sticker that said Tytanium and put it on my BMX bike when we used to ride. I always kind of thought it was a cool play on my name and was a fan of Titanium parts.

And Matt, I’ve been supporting GSC for way longer than a year and a half!
