Justin Earl of PorkChop BMX has been more than giving, more than helpful, and just an all around great friend to The Link Foundation. In the beginning of all this I simply asked him if he could help us with a little guidance. Instead he created an ad for the homepage of his website PorkChopBMX.com and overnight we were sending Links all over the country and internationally. He also donates tons and tons of awesome high end bike parts that we use to build up the bicycles we donate to kids who might not have the chance to get one on their own. Thanks Justin for being so great in so many ways.
Jonny rock Bikes is our #1 recycled chain donor, great great friend. He has donated every single bike chain The Link Foundation has used to date. Over 200 and counting… The selection at Jonny Rock Bikes is across the board. And I’m not saying from good to bad, everything there is of quality. Jon is rescuing, recycling, and selling great bikes at unreal prices. He also has a great selection of new and old parts. Stop by his store or check out his website. Thanks so much Jon, your help keeps us going.
Tad Saddoris at Tad Saddoris Photography is the genius behind all the studio shots of our Link products. Tad has been a great friend and a great mentor to me ever since I entered the professional world. Tad’s work is so precise and crazy, inviting and intimidating. He has does everything from children’s portraits like no other, to detailed table top product photography, the kind you think you can pick up the subject. Please be sure to check out his website and all the great work. Thanks for everything Tad.
Bob Reed At United Surface Preparation has been saving the day and all the Links. United Surface Preparation is Cleaning and prepping the links down to their bare original metal. Perfect for the next part of the process, powder-coating.
Mike Hamnan at Powder Specialties Ins. is The Man behind the bullet proof paint jobs each link gets as a base coat of color. Mike was introduced to us through Dustin and we can’t thank both of them enough for all they have done and keep doing. Thanks So Much Mike! From My Family to yours.
Chad Hardie has been printing our display cards out of the Kindness of his big Ol’ heart. My family and The Link Foundation Thank Chad dearly and deeply for all he has done for my family, and being everything and more of the true definition of a friend. Thanks Chad, may the good Karma one day bring you all your wishes in launching Yeti Enterprises Inc..
