Lifetime Warranty on our frames.

Finally… after many many months (almost seems like years now) of waiting our range of 2008 frames are almost ready to ship out soon. The Sect, MVP & Bloody Oath frames are all getting heat treated right now & then soon will be painted ready to ship out. For all those we have been waiting patiently it will soon be over. Thanks for everyones support & understanding on these delays.

The big news on our 2008 range of frames is our revised warranty. We will now offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY against breakage to the original purchaser. This means if you snap or crack your frame & you’re the original purchaser, you will receive a new frame, no questions asked. We wont however warrant your frame if you bend or twist it as any frame will bend eventually after years of hard riding. I will update the warranty section of the website here with full details of our LIFETIME WARRANTY soon.

Check out the products page for full details on these frames including weights etc.

Welcome to the flow team…

I would like to formally welcome Oleg ‘Bibu’ Alexandrov from Russia to the flow team. Bibu, as he is known as over there, is a 23 year old street killer who has been riding for 6 years. I am sure we will be seeing more of Bibu in the near future & maybe even a Colony trip over in Russia might be on the cards? Only time will tell.

Bibu also runs his own website at called InsideBMX. Check it out here if you can read Russian that is.

Peta hits up Gladstone

Peta sent me some cool pics from her recent trip to Gladstone, QLD. While up there she rode heaps of cool parks & basically had a great time. She got to hang out with the all the cool locals up in the Gladstone area. It’s good to see the girls out there having fun with bmx just like the rest of us. Look out for a story in the next 2020BMX magazine as well.

Hell Stallion Forks

It’s been a while since I have posted news about new products but expect more & more in the coming months.

Here we have the first sneak peaks of Liam Fahy-Hampton’s Hell Stallion forks to go along with his signature frame due out mid this year. These forks feature full heat treated Colonized tubing with weight saving drop outs. They are CNC’d from 6mm down to 5mm with an offset of 30mm. Making all those nose wheelie tricks that much easier. 10mm or 14mm drop outs will be on offer. 

The fork legs are tapered from 31.8mm down to 25.4mm & use extra thick tubing for strength around the drop outs for all the peg tricks Liam likes to do. Weight of these ones are 895grams & they will come with our no questions asked LIFETIME warranty. 

Expect them out in kit form with the Hell Stallion frame, Official stem & one of our headsets in June this year. You will be able to get them seperately in August.

Matt King… prototype tester

I caught up with Matt King today & thought it would be a good chance to get some pics of his current bike.

Matt has been testing the Hell Stallion frame now for about 6 months or so. He says it’s the best frame he has ridden.

Matt is also testing the Oneway CrMo pegs for us at the moment too. They will be out in August this year & weigh in at 150grams. Another new item Matt is testing for us is the Clone cassette with the ceramic bushing driver. These will be out June this year.

Transformer Lever product highlight

We were first to take the humble brake lever as we all know them to new heights when we introduced precision CNC machined quality with our Transformer Levers. We were also the first to introduce the lack of a need for the useless barrel adjuster.

Our levers are half the weight of any other lever on the market today. Sure, they are more expensive but like anything these days, you get what you pay for.

Expect to see other levers on the market soon that are inspired by our pioneering work. Always insist on the original though… the Colony Transformer Lever, available in normal & Trigger versions in a variety of colours.

Fantastic Plastic Pedals

We have been working on these for a while now & I thought it was time to release some teaser details to everyone out there. 

Our ‘Fantastic Plastic’ pedals will feature a very light weight & inexpensive design. They will also feature 8 steel fully replaceable pins per pedal. You can choose to run these steel pins or not. Totally up to you.

The computer images shown don’t show the logo or unique grip pattern that will be all over them. They will be available in a wide variety of colours.

More details will be released soon including pics of the first samples.

Expect these to be available August this year.
