More softgoods and creative than part design, but there's a Rich Hirsch video interview up on Defgrip and he actually comes across as a level headed and humble guy. I always just assumed he was on himself with all the Lotek and Fremont hype and the whole Fit, Mosh, Baygame scene, but there you go... That there is exactly the problem with assumptions about total strangers.
The interview was cool, but is Rich sponsored by Diet Coke or does he just like that shit? Plenty of label at the camera action going on - I'm making no assumptions about that.
If you're into the opinions of total strangers, there's a huge thread full of love and hate for Rich on BMX board
