Jim Bauer seemed to come out of nowhere in the early 2000’s, after moving to LA from his hometown NY and bringing his wild and unpredictable riding style with him. But Jim’s BMX roots go way back, from expert BMX racing at age 12 to front flips and backflips on dirt at age 15. He’s still one of the most exciting riders out.
Introducing a new monthly series for Quintin, Story Time is a look behind our brand and our friends brands as well as everyone that makes up the Quintin Family. Jim is the Art director at Odyssey BMX, as well as being a rider, family man and car guy. Meet a man behind the scenes of BMX, with many talents, Jim Bauer is our featured person on the first episode of a series we call Story Time.
