Tim "Fuzzy" Hall

The Fuzz has invented more tricks than you can imagine, has inspired countless throngs of young trail riders, and hasn’t gone a minute of his life without having a smile on his face. Fact.

I Cut ¾" off each side of my bars, cut front axle, and I have a zip-tie holding the cable to my frame.
The paintjob is pretty awesome on your frame, tell us about it.
Our Art director Evan Moss is great and is always on the hunt for great ideas for colors that suit the Device frame, and this will be a color run for 2009. It reminds me of the early 90's… The color run will be called "Trick Star".
You cut your front axles, but not your rear. What's going on there?
The Hack-saw at 50/50 got so dull I had to give up and haven't had time to go get a new blade!
How do you set up your bars? They look like they're back a bit.
I have always run my bars back a slight bit from the fork angle.
What PSI do you usually run?
Super low…I run 60 PSI.
Do you do all the work on your bike?
Were these the cranks you had on your white bike? The black paint needs a touch-up…
Redline can't keep Device cranks in stock—best cranks out! So I just painted my old ones.
Who does Imperial and why do you like their sprockets?
It's a rider from Idaho that comes down to 50/50 all the time. He has his own machine shop and sells them at 50/50.
What's up with the gold bottom bracket?
It was at 50/50 and I needed a spacer. It worked perfect.
What was the last major thing you switched up on your bike (or your bike's style) and why?
The only thing that I really do is cut my bar length ¾-inch on each side. Other than that, it's pretty simple.
