DREAM JOBS: LIVING WHAT YOU LOVE

SUBSCRIBEINTERNAL_AN14480JAMES CURRY
SADDLE TUBES OWNER

STARTING POINT: “I have been racing and riding offroad for 30 years. I have a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering, went to Law School and became a Patent and Trademark Attorney. Bottom line, I have become sick and tired of running heavy-duty tubes and high tire pressures. Six years ago, I experimented in solving the pinch flat problem with something simple and effective. After five years of running 8-10 psi with soft to intermediate tires, I knew I was on to something.”

THE JOB: “This year I got motivated to develop my ‘proof of concept’ experiments into a product. I have been through three generations of prototypes with eight riders involved in developing my product–including myself. I am ‘Saddle Tube,’ from concept, to development, to prototype testing, to manufacturing, shipping and sales. I really believe my product has motocross applications. With standard duty tubes you can run lower pressures for optimal traction.”
