Whether you’ve been reminiscing about your beloved childhood bike or are looking for an excuse to cycle around town, you’re in luck. Atlanta-based Marshall Thomas, aka DJ Mars, will debut his unique custom bike experience, Made by Mars The Pull Up, on Apr. 1 at Atlantic Station. The personalized bike pop-up will be open throughout May between LUSH Nail Bar and Forever21.
DJ Mars began his career in the music industry touring with many popular artists including Usher, NEYO, Ciara and Keri Hilson, but he always had a passion for sneakers and bikes. In the fall of 2019, Thomas unknowingly became his own first client when he took his DMX 29-inch Big Ripper from a powder blue exterior to a black, gold and white vision representing his high school colors. Thus, Made by Mars was born – a concept centered entirely around designing personalized bikes.
Bike enthusiasts can visit the pop-up every day throughout the month of May from 11am to 7pm. Each Saturday, an Atlanta-based DJ will perform as part of a “Block Party” series from 2 to 5pm. For more info, follow @madebymars and @atlantainfluenceseverything on Instagram.
