Bloody oath we got some new, very special frames coming for 2008.

All our frames for 2008 feature Full Post Heat Treatment giving them an amazing strength to weight ratio. Basically, our frames are Heat Treated after welding & this creates the incredible strength that they possess.

First, we have the Dave Freimuth signature frame called the MVP. It comes in either 20.25 or 20.75 top tube lengths & weighs in at a mere 4.5lbs (2,050grams). Dave’s tech machine will hold up to anything you can throw at it whether you run front brakes or not.

Street Assasins

Liam Fahy-Hampton & Mick Bayzand are both amazing street assasins living in Melbourne, Australia. They are both some of the latest members of the Colony family.

You can now see them on Colony frames loaded with Colony parts. Liam is testing the new 4.0lb Full Post Heat Treated Bloody Oath frame, while Mick is on a Sect. Both are loving their new rides.

If you don’t know of these two then you soon will. Both have been killing the streets for a long time now. Expect big things soon. Thanks to Cooper from www.focalpointbmx.com for the pics.

Welcome to the team guys !!

A Month In The Life Of

Earlier this year we filmed for almost 4 weeks in the life of the entire team. We travelled in Australia from Brisbane to Sydney then over to Wellington in New Zealand & onto the South Island for a roadtrip.

On the trip there was Ryan Guettler, Dave Freimuth, Nick Richardson, Pete Radivo, Kenny Raggett, Haimona Ngata & myself. We also had a very special guest in the way of Dave Osato. The trip is also going to be documented in the next issue of Ride BMX UK.

I have been busy editing the footage from the trip into our first DVD release. It’s getting rather close to being finished now & will be in shops within the next 6 weeks or so. Keep an eye out for ‘A Month In The Life Of’ at all good BMX shops worldwide.

Oh yeah & check here for a possible trailer in the next week or two.

what a buzz!! heellllloooo internet world!!

So I gots this email from Millar that the site is finally up and running, awesome to see! then he sends me another one saying that everyone can do their own updates! (up-dates! ahehehe) So I thought I would log in and say hello to internet world!!

The weather here in NZ is poorah at the moment, hosing down with rain, and just when it looks like it may be dry enough to get out for a peddle, it starts spitting and then KABOOSH!!! a full down pour, make sure you’ve gotten the washing off the clothesline stuff!! So theres been alot of drinking, eating pies, and watching saucy videos on the internet, here’s hoping the weather fines up this weekend, will post some random pictures next time foreshore!

Ryan Guettler’s Official Signature Stem

Ryan’s signature stem, the Official Stem, will also be shipping worldwide with the Transformer Lever. We have worked very tightly with Ryan on this one & its something we are very proud of for sure.

It’s machined from 7057T6 alloy as opposed to most stems which are 6061T6 alloy. Our stem can then be machined out much more than normal making it very light weight. It weighs in at 250 grams or 8.03 oz. It is also very strong as 7075T6 is much stronger & more durable. It features a removable gyro plate as well.

You can have Ryan’s stem on your bike in Pale Red any day soon or in Black, Pale Blue from September. We will also have limited edition colours like Dark Purple & Pale Green.

Yo yo !!

Transformer Lever shipping now…

Yes, finally the Transformer Lever is shipping to all of our distributors right now. Soon it will be available worldwide.

The Transformer Lever is one of our star products & will surely change the way levers are looked at from now onwards. They are a full precesion CNC machined lever from 6061T6 alloy. This eleminates the annoying ‘lever wobble’ all levers have had in the past. They are also incredibly light at 60 grams or 2.11 oz. This is half the weight of any other BMX lever on the market. They feature no threaded barrel adjuster to strip out or bend as your cable fits straight into the body. They will also come with an adaptor piece to suit the twin cable systems out there as well. Also supplied will be spare bushings.

Shipping now are right hand versions in Black only with left hand also available in September as well as a right hand Trigger version. There will also be colours available with Pale Red, Pale Blue & limited edition colours such as Dark Purple & Pale Green.

We hope that you like our lever as we have worked hard on it for over 18 months now.

Yo yo !!

We test our products…

At Colony we test our products in more ways than one well before you put them on your bike. Take our Official & MVP forks for instance. Both of these forks offer a Full Lifetime Warranty & we can do this because we have total confidence in our forks.

Not only do the team test them riding we also test our forks in the factory. The machine showed here has a 170 kg weight pressed down on the forks over 100,000 times to test their strength. They pass this test with full straight A’s.

You can rest assured when you run a Colony fork you are getting some of the lightest & strongest forks on the market.

Yo yo !!
