Aaron Ross House Check
Inside Aaron's House
"For the last few years, I've saved my old bikes, thinking I wanted to buy a house one day and display them. At the old house, they were always around, and people hated looking at them," he says.
This is the bike's eye view of Aaron Ross' living room, kitchen and skateboard deck wall. "The blue/yellow Sunday is just one of my older bikes," says Aaron.
Aaron Ross and Bas Keep
Aaron Ross and soon-to-roommate Sebastian Keep relax in Aaron's living room under Aaron's collection of former Sunday Bikes. A recent UK transplant, Bas settled on Texas and Aaron had an extra room.
The Ross Family
When Aaron moved into the new house, he started exploring the ideas of art outside of unique bike color ways. "These two piece of artwork are by me," says Aaron. And that's Aaron with mom, dad and dog.
Bar B Q Sauce
"I have 6 or 8 jars of this sauce in my pantry, and they get used frequently. Any time we cook, it's the go-to sauce. If you're ever in Texas, and you happen to eat meat, you have to go to Rudy's Bar-B-Q," says Aaron.
Because both Aaron and Bas Keep are featured on Fuel from time to time, it's easy for them to turn the television on, freeze an image of themselves riding, and then shoot a photo of it. This is Bas riding a ditch in Europe.
A sampling of Aaron's artwork covers his somewhat new art studio. "I've only been doing artwork since I moved into this house. I'm not really good at drawing," he says.
Aaron's friend and former roommate Adam Roye designed these two pieces of artwork. On the left is original artwork for Empire BMX, and on the right is Saved By The Bell influenced artwork from Aaron's first signature frame with FBM.
Aaron Ross and Eric Koston
An assortment of odds and ends from the wall of Aaron Ross, including an X Games Medal from the 2008 Mexico X Games, and a shot of Ross with professional skateboarder Eric Koston at the ESPY's.
"I painted one of the shoe print pieces, and my girlfriend did the other one. She used the sole of my signature shoe. I just copied hers cause it was too small on that wall and I needed something else," says Aaron.
Original artwork by Aaron Ross. "I'm in the process of doing one now with Lego people," he adds. In case you were wondering, Aaron is indeed a good human.
An assortment of bikes line Aaron's bedroom wall. "The etnies/Sunday/Odyssey bike has never been ridden, the red one is a project bike I built up, and the rest are just my old bikes. I'm stoked cause I finally stop saving bikes," says Aaron.
Aaron's signature etnies/Odyssey collab shoe sits atop Aaron's signature Odyssey grip, which features a keyboard print in honor of Aaron's texting and Twitter abilities.
Aaron's 2007 NORA Cup Number one street rider of the year award sits close to Aaron's signature Sunday Funday frame.
Aaron Ross Juice?
Check out the Aaron Ross juice box. "It's actually a peach apple juice, it was really gross. I got it in Brazil. I showed up for the X Games, and I was on the juice carton. I had no idea, so ESPN sent me a box back," says Aaron.
Bronzed Aaron Ross Shoe
"My dad was so stoked that I got a shoe. He actually had it bronzed sitting on the cranks and sprocket, and made one for me, one for Jim Bauer at Odyssey and one for John Povah at etnies as a thank you to them," says Aaron.
"A bunch of kids sent drawings for bike ideas to my sponsors, and this was one of my favorite pieces of fan mail. It was sent to Odyssey, but it's about me and I stole it cause I thought it was the coolest one," says Aaron.
