Clint Millar 41st birthday video

This was a nice surprise to see in my emails the other day…

“It’s become a bit of a tradition the last few years now for me to spend my birthday riding & film an edit from it. This year, my 41st birthday was spent doing exactly that. I wanted to ride as many varied spots as I could & make a true “freestyle” edit as such, with a bit of everything thrown in for good measure. Alex Hiam came along & we had a blast riding, even though it was the windiest day ever with gail force cyclonic winds. @hardythepuppy even makes a cameo appearance as in video’s past as well. Pretty stoked with the end result & a big thanks to Troy Charlesworth for making me look better than I really am.” – Clint Millar.

Millar in Melbourne

Millar was in town for a couple days so we got out for a ride in the sun one day and snapped a few photos…

Canberra trip Flipbook

With the biggest jam of the year going down in Canberra we knew we had to make the trip out with a good chunk of the crew. The following is a collection of images from the cold days we spent in the capital territory…

Thanks to LC for the additional photos.

#oldmentrip in New Zealand

I just got back from the second #oldmentrip over in New Zealand with some good long term mates from over there. Kenny Raggett also came along which was awesome. We travelled around a fair chunk of the South Island & had a blast on & off the bikes. We rode so much awesome stuff, explored, & basically enjoyed life on the road. Looking forward to the next one already. Check out some of my pics taken a long the way. Thanks to Dave, Phil, Jonno, Mario, Bruce & Kenny for an awesome week. Good times !! – Millar.

Clint Millar’s 40th birthday weekend

Last July was my 40th birthday & I wanted to do something special for it. So we headed over to Stradebroke Island just off the coast of Brisbane for a few days. There are a few cool parks over there & an old bowl that I hadn’t ridden for at least 20 years. The weather was amazing & it was a great way to see my 40th birthday in with great mates & family. I couldn’t ask for a better day, thanks to all that came over.

A little late but better than never, here is the video from the day. Thanks again to all those that came over, rode, hung out & partied the day/night away.

Thanks to Jesse Breen & Glen McLaughlin for filming & Cooper Brownlee for editing.

On the Road – Victoria

Here is the final raw video from our recent trip. Thanks to all the shops and crew that came out for a roll, we had a blast…

On the Road – ACT

Here is part 3 of our recent trip down the east coast. A sort of behind the scenes look into the 2 days of the trip throughout the ACT, hanging out at Backbone BMX (and Yass).

Riders featured: Chris Courtenay, Bobbie Altiser, Zac Miner, Tom Stretton, Clint Millar, Ricky Cantanzariti and Luke Parker.

On the Road – NSW

Part 2 of the trip from a video perspective. We spent 3 days travelling south through New South Wales and this video is packed full of riding footage and some good times we had along the way…

On the Road – Brisbane

As you would have seen if you follow us on Instagram, we are currently doing a 2 week trip between Brisbane and Melbourne hitting up a bunch of parks, shops and anything else along the way with some of the crew.

Here is a sort of behind the scenes look into the first 5 days of the trip along with some clips we didn’t keep for other projects.

Riders featured: Chris Courtenay, Bobbie Altiser, Zac Miner, Tom Stretton, Clint Millar, Ricky Cantanzariti, Polly, Dean Anderson, Keith Treanor and Luke Parker.

If you are in Sydney today, head out to the Bass Hill park around 3pm for a session…

10 years of Young Guns

10 years ago our warehouse manager Glen McLaughlin put out a DVD called Young Guns which featured a good chunk of the Queensland BMX scene including Millar and Glen himself. Check this out for a good history lesson…

Happy New Year

From all of us at Colony we would like to thank you for all of the support and good times in 2014. I gathered some of my favourite shots from the year for a bit of a recap… Let’s do it all again this year!

D.I.Y in Melbourne (leftovers)

We had a bunch of footage leftover from the D.I.Y project so we put them together with some B-Roll to give you a little more insight into the 3 days in the heat…

Original video…

D.I.Y in Melbourne video

I knew of a few drain spots that already existed here in Melbourne so I spent some time fixing up a few along with creating some new spots and then invited some of the guys to come down, stay at my place and ride the spots for 3 days. We had to do this during the middle of summer so that we didn’t get washed away and to be able to build at the spots. This all worked well besides the temperatures going above 40 every day we were out but everyone made it work and had a blast doing so. Here is the video (and photos) from the project, hopefully we get to do another one next summer.

Prody Frames are arriving…

The 20 year anniversary Prody Frames have arrived in the USA & will be here in Australia early May. The UK will also land these later in May. These frames are a special throwback to a very small run of frames Clint Millar had built back in the early ’90’s under the name of Prody.

2020 BMX Magazine did an interview with Clint about the release of these & you can read it online here now. Check it out.

Set Ups with Clint Millar

Clint has been running the Prody Frame prototype for a while now with no problems. Along with the 4 piece Hardy Bars he has some fresh products stacked on his current ride. Hit the flip book below for a detailed look at his set up.

Escondido park

Earlier in the week we were looking into parks to ride in the San Diego area and this park popped up via Google which caught our eye. It happened to be a bike only night that night so we hit it up and there was only 2 other people there. The Esondido park was super fun and no doubt we will be heading back many more times. Here are a few quick shots from the session.

Forks with mounts

We’re one of the few brands who still make forks with brake mounts these days, always have, always will.

To celebrate this fact we compiled a bunch of front brake clips from Clint, Polly & Bobbie. Some new, some older but all showing good use of the front brake. It’s something we feel very strongly about & will always offer within our product range. Forks with brake mounts are here to stay & we’re helping that one bike at a time. #colonybmxbrand #frontbrakebrethren

Millar’s Coppin’ It Sweet DVD part

Stewart Munro, who filmed & edited our 2011 team DVD release, dropped his own full length DVD late last year called, Coppin’ It Sweet. It’s been out since October & he has started to drop some of the sections online for all to enjoy. The first one up is our own Clint Millar’s & here it is below.

I know Clint put in a lot of effort on this section & it has to feature some of the best riding he has ever done. Not bad for someone pushing 40 years old. It also has a cool intro with old footage & photos along with words from some legends like Ryan Nyquist, Dave Osato & Chad Degroot.

Sit back & enjoy some good old technical front brake ramp riding with a few world firsts thrown in the mix.

Clint Millar 39th birthday session

Millar and Glen teamed up a few months ago to film a session in his backyard on his 39th birthday. Being 39 and still progressing is pretty damn impressive and motivational in my eyes.

Advert – Clint Millar

How many BMX brand owners who are 39 years old are still out there killing it? Not that many I would say but I can honestly say Millar is riding better now then I have ever seen him ride in the past 6 or 7 years that I’ve known him. He features in our current 2020 advert with thanks to Brian Castillo for shooting this. That makes it even better that “technically” competing brands can put everything aside and work together and enjoy BMX for what it truly is.

Antipodes – Full video

The full video of the French Ride Sessions who came over to Australia in january for a month just went online. Both Clint and Tom have a couple clips throughout.

Brazil trip updates

So every day or 2 I have been getting sent photos from the guys in Brazil documenting their trip and I must say I am very jealous. It really does look like they are having such a good time along with the locals, just seeing how stoked everyone is in these shots makes me love BMX more and more. Go ride.

Thanks to Renan Souza for the photos.
