We have a winner!

Richo’s bike has been bought up after a pretty successful auction. We had many bid’s & I thank everyone who placed one. But it went in the end to a friend of Nick’s for $700. We even had one bid for $1,500 after the auction had ended! However, the bike will be put to good use as it’s the way for his friend to get back into riding after a few years off, so all is good.

Thanks again for all those that placed bids the cash raised will help pay off Nick’s medical debts. His operation by the way went very well & is on the long road to recovery very well.

Alex’s new bike…

Alex Hiam was down at Crossley Cycles today building up a new bike, well actually giving his new ride a custom paint job courtesy of Mick Lav. They did a pretty good job & it looks the goods.

Alex rides our 2009 Bloody Oath frame in the special ‘kids’ size. It features a 19.8″ TT with a 13.5″ rear end & weighs in at 4.2lbs. It’s aimed at the younger riders out there that want a high quality, light weight frame that also has the geometry to suit them.

They are shipping to selected countries now & will be available over the coming weeks depending where you live.

Old school pic…

I was looking through some old photos & came across this beauty of a pic. It’s features from left to right, Michael Canfield (one of the guys that introduced me to riding back in 1988), myself, Ryan Guettler (at around 8 years old) & Tim Wood. We had our own show team called, Wheels Entertainment & we did shows in & around Brisbane. This pic would have been taken around 1992. Pretty funny stuff.

Weekend up north report…

As reported myself, Alex Hiam & Peta Shepherd went up north for the weekend, namely for Tuckfest in Rockhampton. A great time was had by all & some riding was done. Both Alex & Peta ended up 3rd in the comp with Alex in pro & Peta in expert. Some great riding was seen from all the locals & there were plenty of riders from the surrounding towns like Mackay & Hervey Bay. It was a good day for sure.

On our travels we also hit up a few other parks along the way & had some sessions. We meet up with two sisters who ride by the names of Tahlia & Natalya Diehm. They both ride Colony Sect frames with Natalya on her Sect frame with many thanks to Chris Courtneay. He gave her the frame he won from the comp in Rocky, damn straight up awesome to see. In fact, everyone from the trip who won some prizes gave them back out to others who needed them more than themselves. So good to see. Alex even made some more fans & was asked for his first autographs… a star in the making for sure.



Calliope is like a mini version of Alex’s favourite park, Kuraby.

A sad goodbye to Freimuth

It’s one of those things that are on the horrible side of running a bike company. Having to make hard decisions that you just don’t want to have to do.

I recently had to make the call on a few changes within Colony & some of these are to do with the team. After being on Colony from close to the beginning I had to let Dave go. It was the hardest decision I have had to make & one that I did not take lightly.

Dave is no longer an official part of the team as such but will still ride Colony products until he decides not to do so. Even Dave’s son, Thompson, will have an MVP frame waiting for him when it comes time as we are sending Dave two extra frames while they last. One for his son to ride in years to come & another for Dave to hang on his wall as a momento of his signature frame with Colony. So the split is definately on the very best of terms.

I must thank Dave for all his efforts these last two years & I will look back on the days when I was lucky enough to have one of my all time favourite riders on my own team. Good times for sure & I am very grateful to have been able to have Dave an integral part of Colony.

Thank you for everything Dave & good luck with everything in the future.

If you’re in the area then make sure you get yourself to Rockhampton on Saturday for Tuckfest 08. Proudly supported by Tuckers Cycle Inn, wethepeople & of course us here at Colony.

Mick Bayzand update

Mick just sent me an email to say that he went up to Whistler on the weekend to ride & had a blast until he smashed his arm really bad trying superman seat grab backies into the foam. His fingers turned all purple & he had thought he had broken his arm. It turns out he just smashed it really good & will be off the bike for a while. I am sure Mick will be back on it sooner than later being the tough mother that he is.

Weekend in Melbourne

I just got back from my weekend in Melbourne & I am so sore. Had a great time riding & haven’t ridden that much in a while. First we hit up the opening of Rampfest & all I can say is that place is amazing.

The next day we hit up a the new Knox park as well as a local school & the old Knox park, good times. Myself, John B, Pete Radivo, Luke Barling, Josh Mete met up with the Focalpoint crew & good times were had by all.

We hit up Flemington banks on Sunday which is always a treat. That new little ghetto quarter there is amazing. Exactly my kind of stuff to ride.

A big shout out goes to John B & the Radivo family for looking after me. Thanks go to John B & Cooper Brownlee for the pics. I am already looking forward to coming down again soon.

Richo web edit

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.
