C.A.T.T. (Cycle Agency Three Thousand)
I am a 1980’s BMX bike and Michael’s best friend. No one else has awesome gadgets like me. I am nearly indestructible – I have rocket boosters, and, most importantly, communicate quite well. Michael is my partner in the fight against elementary school injustice.

Stephon Sinclair
Age: 11-years-old
My dad is a U.S. Senator and has always sent me to the best schools. Because of this I know several languages, have studied martial arts, and network with America’s most elite grade-schoolers.
I am the Chief of Operations for S.P.O.K.E.S. (the Special Protection Of Kids in Education Systems)

Connie Carlow
Age: 10-years-old
I am an only child and I know all there is to know about bipedal mechanics. That’s why I developed the most high-tech, and self-aware BMX bike the world has ever known! S.P.O.K.E.S. wouldn’t be where it is today without me.
