Richo Batman & piss stain Hampton

Yeah, we’re bringing our first night in the states with a bang here… $4.00 bottles of Jim Beam are quite the ticket. Bwrahahahaha.




Yo yo !!

We finally made it… kinda.

Well we finally made it to the states but we’re not in Orlando yet. We had plenty of flight delays & now are spending the night in LA. We went for a walk from our hotel for about 5 mins & saw so much good stuff to ride right by our hotel. Pitty we’re all too jet lagged to ride but it was a good welcome sign to the states.

We dropped into a servo, oh I mean ‘gas station’ & picked up some 40’s, yeah! Cold chillen’ in the court yard of the hotel. We also saw a Dave Mirra poster in the servo… so bigtime, it’s awsome. Yo, Dan if you’re reading this… Schapel.

Tomorrow we head to Orlando to hang out at the last Dew Tour.

Yesterday we did the mad dash from Melbourne to Sydney & got in rather late to the Central Coast to Triplesix HQ We will hang here for a few days now before we go back to good old Brisbane.

Along the way we stopped at a cool submarine in Holbrook, NSW & stretched our legs. We snapped a few tourist pics & then went on our way.




Yo yo !!

In Melbourne now

We arrived into Melbourne on Sunday & have been riding around checking out some cool spots the last few days. We checked out the famous Flemington Banks on Sunday which was great to finally ride. We then had a quick session at Kensington Spine after Liam & Mick showed us their street skills. Pretty impressive.

Today we went to Strictly BMX & checked out there new shop… very cool to see. We then went to Werribee & rode an awesome street style park… very fun indeed.

Tomorrow we going riding more & I will post more news when I get time…

Bendigo Jam

Sorry it’s a few days late but on Saturday just gone we were all at the Bendigo Jam. It was a pretty wild time for sure. Some good riding went down & some wild times. Not much to write here but here are a couple pics from the jam.




Yo yo !!

Checking in from the road.

We dropped into a small town called Warwick late yesterday & checked out the local park. Matt King had ridden it before for some demos & said it was really bad. So that just made us want to check it out even more! We wepleasantly surprised that it wasn’t as bad as first thought. Well, good enough to stretch our legs at anyway. Richo spotted some quarter that he wanted to flair & we laughed at him. Lately he has been flairing all kinds of weird ramps & the smaller the better. This one was his smallest. 4 feet & mellow & then right after he did a 3 feet quarter as well. It was pretty damn awesome. The locals were impressed & we then headed to the bottle shop for some roadies. Word.


Excuse my poor photo expertise… Richo & a flair.



Yo yo !!

On the road again…

Myself, Richo & Matt King are about to drive down to Bendigo for the jam down there this weekend then head down to Melbourne. Should be a fun trip for sure. We will also meet Liam Fahy-Hampton, Mick Bayzand, Kenny Raggett & Pete Radivo down there. Colony will be in the house. Yeah !!

I will post reports as we go…

Anyways, not too sure weather this Bad Boy wil go into production, gotta wait and see if BMX Plus will do a bike shootout on it first, heres hoping, bwahahaha!!! Mwwaarrffwwaarkkkaa!!

My new bike…

Today I arrived back from the states & put together a nice new MVP frame & MVP forks.

What is so special about this frame you ask? Well, I had Robert Lewis from, Lewis & Sons Purest Finishes, powder coat my new frame a nice Baby Blue. One of my favourite bikes of recent years was my old WTP Thrillseeker in Baby Blue with Silver forks & Black bars. I wanted to re-create that old bike in my new set up & I like how it turned out.

Contact Robert Lewis (as seen in Rebelyell BMX Magazine) on 07 3899 1277 for all your powder coating excellence needs. Robert specialises in old school restorations & new school creations.

Flatland Jam today…


Shane Badman in Portugal

Shane just dropped me a report from his recent trip…

Hey Clint,

Just got back from the Remax Fieldcontrol contest in Portugal. It was held in Portimao in the far south of the country where the worlds and other big contests have been over the years. The guys put a lot of effort into the weekend constructing a massive tent over the riding area and putting down about 30m2 of ply floor. Picked up and dropped off at the airport, crazy parties and good friends and that’s not to mention how awesome the beaches are…

I got The Cube built just a day before leaving for the contest and didn’t really get a chance to ride it properly until the day of the qualifiers. Rode it like crazy and got used to it really quick. The frame is sharp and responsive, but also really stiff and with plenty of room in all the right places. Being light-weight, it’s super easy to move around and takes little effort to get this bad boy moving. It got a lot of really positive comments from the other riders and people were really stoked on its simplicity and function.

Qualifiers went well. Pulled most of my stuff during my run and even some new stuff that I’ve just learnt. I wasn’t around for the results, but Frank Lucas told me I got third – stoked!

Results were only scored down to 5th place so I’m not sure where I placed. Despite all this, had a really good time, got to ride at an awesome spot hung out with friends and made some new ones. The Cube did it’s job super well, people were psyched on it and now it’s time to go think up some new tricks to learn.






Pics from Interbike

Interbike 2007 started today in full force here in Vegas. Here are some pics of our stuff for 2008 on display at the Tip Plus booth # 5151.

Check back tomorrow for more pics…

Full heat treated crmo arms & spindle.
Super hollowed out 19mm 48 splined spindle with crank bolt to match.

Matt King on Colony flow

I have been helping out Matt King now for a while ever since he had a bike stolen a few years ago. When it came time to have someone test one of the first Bloody Oath frames I flowed one to Matt to test & it’s still going fine today.

Matt is now officially a part of the flow team for Colony & has just put together a Hell Stallion prototype frame to test for us. It looks pretty good we think… but check the pics yourself.

Matt also has a small section in the bonus footage of our new roadtrip DVD, ‘A Month In The Life Of’ I love watching Matt ride… such an awesome style. Check it out in stores everywhere in the coming weeks.
