After leaving Mirraco over a year ago, Nigel Sylvester has been pretty tight lipped about what he’s been up to. Last night he broke the silence in serious baller fashion. I am at a loss for words here, I’ll let Animal founder and CEO Ralph Sinisi do the talking:

“Nigel Sylvester announced in his usual style last night about the bike company he is starting with Pharrell. It is going to be Brooklyn Machine Works complete BMX bikes. Watch the video above to see how he rolled in last night live on MTV at the VMA’s red carpet with the whole crew including Rone, Ralphy, Oba, Marlon, and Hoder just to name a few. Of course, Nigel will continue to be one of our main team riders and run all our products with his frames. The Brooklyn completes will also feature components from Animal. Look for those at bicycle shops in the near future. Everyone knows Nigel has big plans and this is just a preview of what to expect.” – Ralph Sinisi

And here is Nigel and Pharrell at the MTV VMA’s last night:
