Rampfest video

Here is a cool introduction to the brand new park in Melbourne called, Rampfest. It gives you a really good overview of this amazing place. I was down here for the opening night & it was a treat to be here for it. This is going to be a great thing for the riding scene in Melbourne & a huge shout out goes to Brett for stepping up with such a huge project. Everyone should get to the park & show some support.

Off to Rampfest in Melbourne

Yo… I am off to Melbourne today to check out the opening night of Rampfest. Should be a great time indeed. I will also do some riding in & around Melbourne & hang out with Pete Radivo. Fun times ahead !!

If you’re in Melbourne this weekend make sure you get out there for the first official BMX day on Saturday.

Richo web edit

A few weeks ago I met Nick at Beenleigh to film one last time before his pending knee surgery. We got some footage clocked in an afternoon & this is the result. Nick is now out for 8 months with his knee recon & we wish him the best & fastest recovery.

Click here to check out his efforts that one afternoon a few weeks ago.

Check back in the next week or two for info on how you can make a bid for Nick’s personal bike, as seen above, to help him pay off his medical bills.

The Stallion is coming…

The first batch of 2009 Hell Stallion frames are getting painted right now & ready to be shipped out.

Liam’s frame has been refined even further now & will feature removable brake hardware & an improved built-in seat clamp with replaceable nut & bolt. We also refined the drop outs with a cleaner shape & lighter design.

His final production frame weighs in at 4.76lbs of full post heat treated beauty.

Expect it to be available from mid to late September in most countries.

Custom bike simulator

The guys over at Strictly BMX have a pretty cool simulator where you can get an idea of what your custom colour co-ordinated bike could look like. Try it out with our White Limited Edition parts in mind perhaps?

Mick Bayzand checks in.

Cover boy, Mick Bayzand, sent me a bunch of random pics from his times in Vancouver so far. He has been having a blast & riding heaps which is awesome to see. Plenty of good times by the looks of things & we certainly miss him here back in Oz.

A huge shout-out go to the guys at Tenpack for looking after Mick while he is there. Thanks !!

Bayzand gets the cover of 2020

That’s right !! Our own Mick has been graced with the cover of the latest 2020 mag due out end of the month. I am so stoked for him. He also has a huge interview within the pages of the magazine. We also have a huge story on our trip to Canberra a few months ago as well as a giveaway on a Hell Stallion frame. Check it out below & get the mag when it’s available.

Colony in Brisbane.

Yo… Liam Fahy-Hampton & Zac Miner are in town for the weekend to get some riding in, clock some clips & have a good time. Cooper Brownlee from Focalpoint is also in town to document the action for his next issue of the magazine.

Liam hurt his already wrecked ankles but could be good for the rest of the trip, only time will tell. Zac did some cool shit today, as always. Tomorrow we plan to hit a few more spots & Richo should be around too before his delayed knee operation due this coming Wednesday. Expect a brief web edit from the action this weekend soon.

Thanks to Cooper for the pics today.

Hell Stallion Kits… no more.

We had to make a hard decision recently & we have pulled delivery of the much anticipated Hell Stallion kits.

This will NOT affect the Hell Stallion frame or fork delivery in any way, just the planned kits consisting of Hell Stallion frame, fork, Official stem & our headset.

We pulled the kits due to them not being finished 110% to our high quality standards. Rest assured you will be able to get Liam’s frame & fork separately soon enough. We’re sorry for the delay on his frame but it will be well worth the wait.

You can expect the frames to be available after they start shipping in the first week of September. For the mean time you can get Liam’s signature forks in some countries now (Germany & France) with others very soon.

Steve Woodward’s bike

Steve sent me some pics of his current bike set up for you all to check out. He is riding a Bloody Oath Limited complete straight out of the box. Pretty much shows that they really are a pro level bike right out of the box ready to shred.
