Scott Campbell


Scott was born in NorCal in the heart of the Huffy era. Growing up in Folsom riding bikes was the thing to do. Bright orange Paper Boy Schwinn, Mongoose BMX, hand-me-down 10-speed. Building and modifying bikes is what he digs. 10 years ago when he got the opportunity to purchase a Redline "Pit Boss", his boy's first "real" bike...the love, passion, and pure joy of bikes and biking came rushing back. The last two years of riding and being around bike racing has made this old man youthful again! If you are on a bike, you're a friend of mine.
