Ed Ferri - Owner
Started racing in 1980, and has been hooked on BMX ever since. Raced for Skyway, RAD RACING, and Bonzai Cycles during the early years. Worked in a few really great bicycle shops since the mid-80's, and worked at MCS Bicycles (Custom Cycle Supply) as a sales rep in the early 2000's, as well as FMF Bicycles. Started PlanetBMX in 2005 with a few different models of Skyway Tuff Wheels as our main product. It's grown from there!
Screamin' Steve Schaefer- Warehouse and shipping manager, Customer Service
Steve is a BMX bike lover, and has rode across the state of Florida on his BMX bike TWICE over the last few years. Steve keeps the warehouse here at PlanetBMX beautiful, and organized. If you place an order with us, there's a 80% chance that Steve packed it up! He puts a little bit of love in each package, which will show when you open up a box that he packed up.
Steve's other passion is Japanese military firearms, so if you're looking for a Japanese rifle, Steve's your guy! Steve is also the guy who spawned Remi, our BMX street product tester. Remi's rad, and he's that way because Steve made him.
Scott Venuti- Shipping / Comic relief
Scott has been with us at PlanetBMX for many years now, and somehow we still manage to laugh at all of his jokes. He is a master voice impersonator, and is always fun to be around. He is scary tall, and full of tattoos. But don't let his appearance fool you. He's a teddy-bear.
Scott is also a tattoo artist, which is his main job these days. (Not here at PlanetBMX, but in a real Tattoo shop down in St Augustine) He's starring in his own television show later this year- "ST. AUGUSTINE INK", which will showcase his skills. Nah, we're totally kidding there. There's no tv show. But I'd watch it if there was...!
By that way, ladies- He's single!
Florida Von- Customer Service
This is Von. Von is one silly guy, and is a GREAT asset to the PlanetBMX crew. He is one of our customer service guys, and if you ever send an email to us, this guy may be the one sending a reply back to ya!
Von LOVES anything by S&M Bikes, and that's his bike brand of choice, even though you are looking at him on a PK Ripper right now. He loves tacos and beer and LOVES spending all of his free time riding many, many miles on his S&M Widowmaker. Von, along with our guy Steve, made the trek across the state of Florida twice in recent years, and if you ever find yourself in St Augustine, Florida, this is the guy that you need to give you the guided tour by bike!
Wonder Woman- PlanetBMX blogger
This is Ed's wife.... but she is known as "Wonder Woman" in the Tumblr realm. She takes care of all of the blogging that happens daily!
