Another new ride…

Well, since it seems to be the week of making up new bikes, here is another very new set up… courtesy of Cooper Brownlee & Scott Greentree of Focalpoint Check over on the Focalpoint site for a better quality image of my new bike.

Something very different for me that’s for certain… perhaps even some kind of mid-life crisis? Either way… it’s going to be a challenge that I welcome.

Peta & her new colour bike (for this week)

I saw Peta the other day down at Crosser’s & she had her bike in the new colour for that week (she paints her bike every few weeks !!) I hooked her up a few new parts like our Mid Pivotal Seat & Official Sprocket as well as some Unlucky13 Tall bars. Peta is a light weight freak so you know it’s a light bike… that’s how we roll at Colony.

New Colony advert…

Here is the new advert featuring Ryan Guettler & his line of signature products as well as our ground breaking Oneway Pegs.

Ryan’s Unlucky13 Bars, Official Forks, Sprocket & Stem are available worldwide right now. The stem has even been popping up on a few pro’s bike checks of late too, proving it is one of the most sought after stems on the market today.

This advert will feature in Ride BMX USA, 2020 BMX as well as Focalpoint BMX magazines.

Our Oneway pegs feature a unique internal design which makes them very light. They are basically thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on top where you don’t. See the pic below for what I mean. Simple. Another Colony original design.

Richo loving the states.

Richo just sent me a quick email to say that he is having a blast hanging at Ryan’s place in Greenville & has extended his trip now another few weeks. So we wont be seeing Nick at Beenleigh anytime soon just yet.

Richo also sent me a pic of himself getting tattooed… pretty crazy sleeve work.

Weekend in Tasmania

I just spent the weekend in Tasmania chilling with family without my bike. For those that don’t know where Tasmania is check a map of Australia & see that little Island at the bottom? Well, that’s Tassie as us Aussies affectionately know it as.

It was great to relax without my bike for once & just do the tourist things that ‘normal’ people do. I checked out a few cool spots like Brady’s Lookout where we saw an Echidna going about his daily routine. Pretty cool to see. While driving back from there I saw this cool little park in a small town called, Beaconsfield.

I also checked out Tassie’s only BMX shop in Launceston called, Highroller BMX. It’s ran by a local rider named Brad & was really cool to see. If your ever there you HAVE to drop in & buy something or die. haha.

All in all it was a nice relaxed weekend & now I head home to turn around & go to Taiwan tomorrow… my travel never ends it seems !!

Frames will now be delayed now until March 2008.

We have had some very stressfull days here working on a problem that has hit us this week.

I am very sad to report that we encountered a problem with our 2008 frames recently shipped worldwide. There has been a manufacturing fault discovered in that the BB shells are ovalised on all Bloody Oath, MVP & Sect frames for 2008. This in turn would make the BB bearings sieze up & not turn freely. This does NOT affect any 2007 model Sect frames out there.

As these frames were not up to our strict quality standards, I made the decision to have them re-called before they hit the markets around the world. I don’t want Colony products out there unless they are absolutely 100% perfect.

This problem does not affect the 2008 Sect Limited Edition complete bike I am happy to report.

I am sorry for the delay this will cause but in March it will be worth the wait. We are having them all made again & making sure this rare problem never occurs again.

I thank everyone out there who has supported Colony from day one. We here at Colony always strive to offer you the best possible products & we will continue to do so.

Vans / Colony collaboration Whip 2 shoe in the works…

vans.jpg

The last few days I have been hanging out with Jerry Badders the BMX team manager for Vans. Today he showed me around the Vans offices in California & I gotta say it’s a pretty cool set up. It’s a huge place with so much cool stuff to check out. They even have a nice mini ramp set-up as well. Definately BMX friendly too. I also got to check out Guettler’s new Whip 2 shoe in the flesh & it looks pretty damn cool to say the least.

We have been working with Vans now for a few months on a collaboration Whip 2 shoe with Colony & Vans. Expect to see it available Spring 2009 which means available January 2009. So yeah you will have to wait a while but it will be worth the wait.

I will post more info here once it becomes available.

A little late… but better than never.

Last week we visted the Orchid / Littledevil offices in Philly. Liam & Nick wanted to go ‘shopping’ & get some new clothes & shoes. So we all tagged along & checked out the place. We got to see the infamous bowl & yes it looks just as good as you can imagine. Pitty we didn’t have time to ride it at all but was a good tease for sure.

It was cool to see a copy of Focalpoint in the front office on the coffee table. Focalpoint rules & good to see it on the other side of the planet.

Product highlight – Oneway Pegs.

Our Oneway Pegs are growing in popularity the world over & for few good reasons…

1. They are light weight due to their special design & construction. So much so, that some companies feel the need to ‘copy’ our special internal offset design with them being thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on the top where you don’t grind. See the diagram for details.

colonyonewaypeg1.jpg

2. They come with the optional built-in chain tensioner that is also removable. Giving you complete freedom on how you run your pegs. See picture below.

3. They come in a great range of colours.

onewaypegs.jpg

4. They grind just as fast if not faster than traditional crmo or titanium pegs. They also hold up to street use as Liam Fahy-Hampton & Mick Bayzand inform me.

Bruno Faucon & his new ride.

Bruno Faucon from France sent me a pic of his new ride. His nice new 2008 Bloody Oath Frame with Full Post Heat Treatment technology in 21 inch with Bloody Oath bars, MVP Forks with Official Stem & Sprocket. Looks like a pretty sweet ride to me… I am sure Bruno will be killing it as always on his new beast.

For all your Colony needs in France contact Unleaded BMX they will sort you with the best Colony has to offer at a price you cannot beat in France.
