In 1989, Hal Brindley started 2B Homecooked Garments with his friend Steve Buddendeck. Three years later, according to a Ride BMX reader survey, it was the top clothing brand in BMX. Leigh Ramsdell was one of 2B’s first pro riders. He also became Hal’s employee and roommate. In 1995 Hal started PLAY clothes and Leigh started his own line called Useless. Together they again became two of the best selling rider-owned brands.
In 1999, Hal sold PLAY clothes to become a traveling wildlife photographer (and PLAY went under 6 months later). Leigh became a team manager and graphic designer in the BMX industry.
Now, twenty five years after 2B was born, they decided it would be fun to re-print some old tee shirt designs. That’s how Oldscool BMX was born.
