Founder of BMX Products and Mongoose Bicycles. Skip first created the Motomag in 1974, a cast aluminum mag wheel.  It withstood everything that the then new sport of BMX could dish out.  In 1975, he was the first to produce a complete BMX-specific bike, the Mongoose, equipped with Motomags. After growing the Mongoose line to be one of the largest names in the bike industry, Skip sold the company in 1986. Today, Skip continues to be involved in innovation of wheeled products.
