SEBASTIAN KEEP

SEBASTIAN KEEP

Born and raised in a run down fishing town in the South of England my friends and I spent most of our youth playing football and trying our best to get chased by anybody older than us. Until one Sunday we came across 2 adults on BMX bikes seemingly with the same attitudes as us, capitalising on the quiet industrial estate by seeing it as their playground, these guys were grinding handrails jumping stairs and having fun. Our lives changed within an instant and we spent every waking minute riding ramps, building trails and travelling to skateparks.

I’ve been very lucky to have had a long career as a pro bmx rider and so like most choices when the time is right the right decision is easy to make, so starting my own range of BMX frames felt like a natural transition for me.

We have seen BMX evolve naturally into street riding being the predominant style of freestyle BMX but for me although I enjoy riding street and using my pegs I have always had a bigger passion for riding transitions whether indoors, outdoors, wood, dirt, cement or brick the feeling of trying to go faster, higher and land smoother has always been my thing, you like what you like I guess.

For this reason ‘tall order’ frames and parts will be designed and engineered specifically to be ridden at the highest level on transitions of all types and sizes. – Sebastian Keep

COREY BOHAN

COREY BOHAN

In 2002 at the Vans triple crown in Oceanside California I saw Bohan ride for the first time. I’d never ever seen style like his before and it changed the way I looked at a bike forever….Seeing Bohan ride in person is truly a beautiful thing and there only a tiny handful of bike riders in the history of the sport that possess this gift. Bohan went on to own BMX dirt winning every contest and award along the way. Seemingly never taking anything too seriously, Bohan is a humble bloke, a true inspiration and an icon of the sport. – Sebastian Keep

DAVID GILCHRIST

DAVID GILCHRIST

I met David during a session at Viccy park the same day I met Kaz. I remember pointing out a wild line in the bowl that Kriss Kyle had previously done and joked with Dave that we should try it, moments later Dave was taking a run up at it! I couldn’t believe it. Kaz, Matt, Dave and myself all spent the next 30 minutes pedalling across the park in a train trying to jump this big ass gap. Dave was the only one that cleared it smooth. Dave has that fire inside him to go a crank faster when it’s scary! – Sebastian keep

MATT HARRIS

MATT HARRIS

Last year we put on a jam at Frontside Gardens in London. I’d never met Matt before or seen him ride. Matt really stood out with his smooth style, enthusiasm and orange bike. I’ve ridden with Matt a few times since then and it’s always a good time as the session benefits from his enthusiasm. – Sebastian keep

KAZ CAMPBELL

KAZ CAMPBELL

A couple years ago Matt Priest told me about a kid that roasts big airs at the gnarly Saffron Walden cement bowl, “this kid rides like Hawk” he said. That next summer I arranged to meet Matt Harris at Viccy park for a session. Matt came along with Kaz and David (also from Cambridge) and we rode all afternoon training lines and carving the cradle. Years later and starting my own company I’m excited to include Kaz. The kid is a ripper! – Sebastian keep

KIERAN REILLY

KIERAN REILLY

A few years ago Ben Hennon had told me about a lad up his way that he’d been riding with that could do all the lines at his private skatepark. I remember thinking that if this kid is riding with Hennon and already doing his lines then he must be an amazing bike rider. I’m excited to see how far Kierans’ bike will take him. – Sebastian keep

MATTY CRANMER

MATTY CRANMER

I met Matty Cranmer 2 years ago in California at the Vans U.S open. Matty came along to the contest with his brother Scotty. He must of only been 17 years old at the time but he ripped around the bowl all weekend looking like he was having the time of his life. This year at the same contest Matty was ripping around the bowl again and the first thing I thought was how much better he had got since I saw him ride last year. We spent some time hanging out at the event and one day whilst we were all eating lunch it suddenly clicked and I thought it would be amazing to have Matty join ‘tall order’. I spoke to his friend Big Boy and his brother Scotty to try to find out whether Matty would be interested. A couple days later after he had killed finals at the U.S open we spoke for a while about ‘tall order’ and I had a gut feeling right there that we were on the same page! 

When I got back to England Matty and I spoke some more and we both realised we were stoked to officially make it happen! I sent him a box of ‘tall order parts and some clothing and all was left to do was to officially announce joining the team. 

Matty is a humble down to earth kid that rip’s and I’m beyond excited and proud to welcome him to ‘tall order’. – Sebastian Keep

TOM GRAVES

TOM GRAVES

The first time I met Tom I was at the level skatepark in Brighton. Id heard Tom could rip and so I asked him if I could film him take a run in the bowl. Tom agreed  and rolled into the bowl with plenty of speed and proceeded to glide around the whole bowl using all the hips and quarters and diving into the corners with ease making it all look too easy and a lot of fun. I knew right there that he had a talent for bike riding. Recently I saw a clip of him flying around a skatepark and so I decided to get out and go riding with him.. Im stoked on Tom and can’t wait to see how he progress’s in the coming years! – Sebastian Keep

Few riders posses masses of style when they are young. Its a trait that comes with years and years of bike riding and experience.Tom is one of the lucky few that has been gifted with a unique style and at 20 years old he has many years to progress and mature. Based in Holland and constantly Riding one of the gnarliest parks in Europe has been a huge factor in Toms progression and I’m excited to see how far Toms bike will take him and I’m very proud that bike is a tall order. – Sebastian Keep
