          When I saw How at the Chicago End Of Summer Jam, I had no clue who he was. I just knew he did some gnarly stuff on a bike. What intrigued me to find out who Joe is was when he did a 180 fufanu to 360. I haven’t seen that trick done in any video in a while let alone in  person. I found out who he was through Austin Augie YouTube channel. Once I found out who he was I hit him up immediately for a interview. While we were exchanging information of the interview he visited the Nowear Compound and did some gnarly tricks on Karls ramps! Go check it out on Instagram (@nowearbmx & @joey15bagz)
