BROOKLYN - The Big Baller Bike Club is aiming to help out the city's youth through creativity.

The club's president, Forchell Garrett – also known as B Fresh – says he fell in love with bikes when he was just a boy.

"When I was younger, my aunt's boyfriend had a tricked-out mountain bike. He had everything in that bike. He had rims, lights, fur," says Garrett.

For the past ten years, the Big Baller Bike Club has been designing, fixing and building bikes.

"When clubs or the police department throw any event, they invite our team," says Garrett.

They even started a youth club with the hopes of keeping the youth out of trouble. They welcome people to join.
