Brian Tunney has stepped down from TM duties…
Some big changes are happening at éclat. First up, Brian Tunney is stepping down as team manager for the brand. After taking a job with ESPN, Brian simply didn’t have enough time to juggle both tasks. “I deeply appreciate the opportunity to work with everyone at éclat and wethepeople over the past few years, but the honest truth is, I just don’t have time to do both jobs,” he said.
Effective immediately, Boston area photographer/BMXer Jeff Allen (http://www.jeffphoto.net) will be handling team manager duties for éclat BMX products. A graduate of the Art Institute of Boston, Allen’s photos have been featured extensively in éclat advertisements and catalogs since the company’s inception. Allen will handle TM duties for Sean Burns, Chester Blacksmith. Ashley Charles and Darryl Tocco, in addition to team photography, Web site upkeep and the random happenings that come with being a BMX team manager.
And if that’s not enough big news, éclat’s brand new line of components is now available worldwide. We know it’s been a while since éclat has been available in the U.S., but interested dealers can get in touch with Seattle Bike Supply for the latest from éclat, including the new Hannibal stem, integrated headsets, Gonzo Pivotal seat and more.
And finally, we’ve got a new team rider in the works. We can’t say who just yet, but sit tight for an announcement. He is awesome.
