The Inside Line Podcast - John Hall, Aaron Gwin's Mechanic 9

How do you go from racing BMX in South Dakota to becoming the mechanic of Aaron Gwin? Fresh off a win in Croatia, Mr. Cool John Hall of the YT Mob tells us in this Inside Line.

The Inside Line Podcast - John Hall, Aaron Gwin's Mechanic

There's an Outkast song with a quote describing Teddy Pendergrass as cooler than Freddie Jackson sipping a milkshake in a snowstorm. That quote could easily be attached to the one and only, John Hall, mechanic for Aaron Gwin and the YT Mob. From his South Dakota roots racing BMX to New World Disorder-inspired hucking, John landed in Southern California when he served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Not wanting to return home after his service, he worked construction and eventually landed a job as a bike mechanic at a shop in Hemet, California. Combine a willingness to work with a little bit of timing, luck and friendships and eventually John found his way to working with Aaron. Fast-forward to today and he's helped earn boatload of World Cup DH wins and provided design input on the new YT TUES. Get inspired by a steady demeanor and strong work ethic and enjoy this Inside Line with Mr. Cool John Hall.
