mmm, I like spots!


So anyways, over on Zombie Mike’s site, there’s a whole bunch of pics from what is probably one of NZ’s most best kept secrets…Just this big alleyway of giant walls, myself, Mr Mike and The Wazman went up there the other weekend and buzzed out like crazy for a few hours, then we went and got as drunk as skunks. We like drinking Heineken mini kegs and Jim Beam’s on the beach in front of the womens public toilets. ha, fun friggin times! Got some more funny and/or interesting news in the next few days, ha! and it will involve drinking booze and bikes.

Alans BMX to distribute Colony in the UK

After many months of having no source for Colony in the UK we have hooked up a deal with Alans BMX to become the main place to get Colony from in the future.

For all you riders out there hanging for some Colony products you will soon be able to get direct from Alans. They will receive their first 2008 order including our long awaited frames in about 6-8 weeks.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience & appreciate your support for Colony.

Pete Radivo back from China

Pete recently went over to China for a comp over there held in Shenzen, in the south of China. It’s held at a theme park every few years where they have a park set up all year for demos.
I was there a few years ago & it’s plenty of fun. Pete rode well enough for 7th with Mark Webb from the UK winning the comp. Seems Pete got up to his favourite past time & got in some serious drinking time while there.

Vintage Show & Shine

The 18th of May marks the day for a vintage BMX show & shine in Brisbane. Should be a great day for sure & I will be there to check out the masterpieces from a BMX era before even my time. Check the flyer for full details. Rumour has it, that John Buultjens is making a guest appearance? Only time will tell.

Angela Dobbie sent me a reminder about her girls video comp that she is organising. It’s a great chance for the girls from all over the world to win some great prizes from Colony. Get out there filming & send in your section to Angela. The comp finishes the end of the month. Check her flyer below for full details & message her myspace if you want more info.

Hooking up your mates…

We just flowed one of Ryan Guettler’s good friends a 2008 Sect frame, complete with a whole bunch of our parts. Josh Boatright has been riding Colony stuff for a while now out of Ryan’s personal stock pile. Josh needed a new frame & we hooked him up. It looks pretty damn good too. Enjoy your new ride Josh.

Product highlight – Oneway Pegs.

Our unique Oneway pegs have given birth to a slew of imitators. But that’s cool, as they say imitation is the best form of flattery. Our pioneering internal offset machining (meaning thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on the top where you don’t) makes our pegs some of the lightest around while still looking normal.

You can also get our pegs with or without an optional built-in chain tensioner to save you even more weight. Top that off with a large array of colours available & you have a a very popular peg. 

For those that are dubious to the grindability of our heat treated 7075T6 alloy, just ask Liam or Mick next time you see them sliding some crazy rails.

2008 Frames shipping very soon.

Our complete range of 2008 frames including the Sect, MVP & long awaited Bloody Oath are getting painted now & soon will be shipped out.

Thanks for all those who have pledged support for Colony & your patience for these frames to be available, we appreciate it.

Kenny Raggett is in Brisbane for the weekend to ride & hang out. We’re going to be hitting up all what Brisbane has to offer in the way of riding places. I will post some pics after today & tomorrow. I captured Kenny here early morning just a few minutes ago while still sleeping on my lounge room floor. So excuse the weird look he has on his face. Off to ride soon… yeah!

To match will be Matt Black painted parts like our forks, bars & frames. These are strictly limited so be quick. Shipping now, so available in most countries very soon.

For those in the UK, hang in there as we may have finally secured ourselves a new distributor. Full details soon enough.

New bike for James.

James Steele, our rider in Canada recently sent me some new pics of his freshly built-up MVP frame. Seems James has lost his brakes & loving it from what he tells me. He recently was in Montreal for a riding trip with John Heaton & Ben Kaufmann (photo credits due) & is heading out to Vancouver in little under a month. The weather is finally getting better over there he tells me, so more riding is just around the corner. 





Yo yo !! 

Custom Chrome anyone?

We recently made Ryan some very custom chrome Unlucky13 bars & Official forks. Ryan wanted to have some to keep for a show piece in his house so we of course got them made for him. He also built up yet another new bike with these on them too. Check it out. Old school look for sure.


I also just received a very cool email from a rider in Australia by the name of Grant Armessen, who had his own Unlucky13 bars chromed out. Shown here with Kenny Raggett (yes, those knee pads are huge! haha) also check the Sect Ltd complete bike in the pic on the right as well. 


Long live chrome… I know Ross Lavender will love that some Colony parts actually exist in chrome. Note… don’t expect any productions of chrome parts from us anytime soon.

However, if you do hunt around you may be able to find some of the chrome Bloody Oath bars that were released last year. If you’re lucky that is.

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.

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.


Welcome to the team Bibu !!

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.
