The guys over in Brazil seem to be having a blast going off the Instagram photos they’ve been posting. That being said Chris did dislocate his shoulder on the first day which is shitty but otherwise good times are being had.

Bottom Brackets might be a small part on your bike but they keep your cranks running smooth and looking good. We’ve had our own BB’s out for many years now and they’ve always been popular, probably because of the unique CNC detail that gives them that different look to many other options out there. Add in some dope looking colours and you have some dialed looking Bottom Brackets.
Marnold shot over an update of what’s happening for him right now…
“Sup everyone, not much happening down my way, I pulled 2 muscles in my back last Monday so I’m out of action on the bike for a while which sucks a lot but I gotta rest up to get better, so in the mean time I’ve just been hanging around working on my car and chilling out, recently brought a tattoo gun which is probably not the best idea I’ve had but who cares, gotta have fun some way or another!!”
Badman seems to travel more then me which is a good thing!
“Checking in from Europe! So for the past couple of months I’ve been living in Budapest, Hungary out in eastern Europe. Got an awesome apartment in downtown and have just been spending each day riding and having a good time on my bike learning old tricks and working on a bunch of new stuff.
It’s been summer over here so have been making the most of it with a few trips to the UK and Czech Republic along the way. One of the best things about BMX is having friends all over the world and having the opportunity to travel and visit them.
So I’ve got another few weeks here and then back to Australia for the summer there. One of my good mates from Hungary, Andras Pentek who runs a massive shop over here OG Bike Shop, is coming with me so we’re gonna spend a month doing a west coast to east coast trip with a heap of riding along the way. Good times ahead!
Ride on good peoples and will check in again soon…!”
Ryan Guettler, Chris Courtenay & Clint Millar are off to Brazil this week to meet up with Valvo & ride a mini ramp contest organised with our good mates at Dream BMX. Should be a blast for the guys with a small road trip planned after the event for a few days as well. Look out for updates here while the guys are there.
We had a pretty solid weekend here in Melbourne with the sun shining both days. Jack as always went in hard and came out with a few solids but paid the price on multiple occasions for doing so.
Seems like a good time to watch this again…
Zac shot through an update from down in Canberra…
Hey y’all.. So not much has been happening at my end, the weather in Canberra has only just kinda come good. With all the shit weather we’ve had before spring we made the most of the climate and went up to the snow for two days for a friends birthday. Couldn’t wipe the smile off my face up an down the slops all day, ate shit a heap of times but had ball. I’ve been rolling around a little at some of the local little parks near my house, but I get my license back in two weeks so i’ll be definitely doing some trips once I get it back, not sure where but yet? Other then that I’ve just been Laying low passing the time.
Tom is such a delight to film with, sure his clips may sometimes take forever to get but standing out in the freezing cold late at night is well worth it when he comes through with something special. We collected some great footage for this video, most of which was on roadtrips throughout Australia enjoying the sunshine and the places we came across along the way.
Have a watch then watch again!
Valvo sent in an update from Brazil…
This week I’m out of São Paulo (my city). I decided going to Belo Horizonte-MG, for a little trip and make a visit to my friend André Delgado, He’s local and know’s all the spots. So good because after recovering from a hand injury he’s back in the game again.
Our Freecoaster Hubs are proving to be quite popular right now & will be back in full supply around the planet in the coming weeks ahead.
Available in RHD & LHD version with a male axle we also have our own specific hub guard to suit for the non-drive side as well. You will also be able to buy them in a pre-built wheel laced to our Contour Rims in the weeks ahead.
Check them out at a Colony dealer near you.

Paddy shot through an update of the latest happenings over in portland…
G’Day everyone, hope you all are happy and healthy. Here’s a little something of what I’ve been up to in the last few months. I’ve recovered very well from my broken ankle and got the official OK from my surgeon to go ahead and do my thing with riding. I’ve had a good chance to do that on our Colony trip to Woodward and thanks again for having me there. So now back in Portland I am working in a bike shop, running the BMX section. I’ll be going to California in a few days to visit Clint, check out the new Colony distro and have a riding sesh with the guys down there. That’s pretty much it, thanks for reading, enjoy yourselves and stay healthy. Much love, Paddy.

With Troy Charlesworth in Melbourne, Marnold came out to film a few clips with him for the 2020 dvd. We came up on this spot which was such an amazing rail setup, for anyone that searches schools you would most likely come across dream rails at the end of school buildings with no run up, well on this occasion we just got lucky.
Our very popular freecoaster has been out for a few months now and they are seriously dope! I am still running the original prototype from 18 months ago and it’s going strong. We made this how-to video a couple months back on how to adjust the slack of the hubs so we hope it helps anyone out there wondering how to do so.
Valvo is the man in Brazil. He is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet & a gun on a bike. Check out his latest edit filmed in Brazil by Felipe Correa. Stoked on this one.
Dream BMX in Brazil hold things down for us down there & are BMX through & through. Much love as always to Marcelo & Andre.

Whilst in California Chris hooked up with JC Pieri for the day and came through with a stupid amount of good footage.
