1974 DOB: 14 novembre 1974
Nate Hanson: I'm originally from Bellflower, California.
early years Nate Hanson: I started riding BMX around age twelve or thirteen. I learned to ride a bike kind of late--like around nine--so it didn't take long.
My first bike ever was a nickel plated Mongoose with Motomags.

Nate Hanson: I started out just jumping curbs in front of my house, and that led into dabbling with flatland.
At the beginning, I just rode by myself. After a while, Day Smith started coming over after school, then it became an everyday thing.

Nate Hanson: My first sponsor was probably Primo, me and Day worked in the warehouse there and helped get them into the freestyle side of the sport. They were just a race component company at the time.

Robbie Morales hooked up Nate to do Fit.
Nate Hanson: Robbie just asked me one night. We were at a bar and he proposed the idea. I went in and talked to Chris Moeller and Robbie about it, and it happened.
I handle all of the technical aspects of the parts. I deal with the frame builder and I do the drawings for all the parts we make. It keeps me busy along with the other stuff I do.
