Shipping & Handling Specialist Jojo Hepler Is one of the newest member of the Powers BMX family officially, but we've loved him long before that. He grew up riding street in the Mountain town of Staunton, Virginia, and his riding reflects it. Big crusty ledges/rails & high speed hill bombs are just a few of his specialties. Another one is getting you your order, fast as shit.
