Welcome Michal Mycek

With many thanks to our distributor in Poland, BMX Forever, we would like to welcome to the flow team Michal Mycek. Check out some pics of his new Bloody Oath below & the quick video of him riding an indoor park in his city, Wroclaw. It’s raining all the time over there right now so not much chance to ride outside.



Mick Bayzand is freezing

Mick sent me a cool email with a bunch of random pics. It’s snowing over there in Vancouver right now & he seems to be enjoying it as well. He also sent me the first pics of his prototype Teddy frame as well, looking good. Mick also moved into a new house complete with a resident cat named, Millar. Awesome.

Liam is at it again…

Another amazing web edit from Liam Fahy-Hampton, this time with his long time supporter, Backbone BMX. The last clip is a banger for sure.

Product highlight – Konka Bar ends

Our Konka bar ends were one of our first ever products developed & they have stood the test of time. I guess what else is a bar end meant to do hey? Available in all our colours & named after a good friends brand of TV set, Konka! Click here if you need more details.

Blast from the past…

Check this out from 1991, top left is myself while top right is Ryan Guettler.

This was at the FlatAmp Comp Series held at Nunawading & featured in the August/September issue of BMX National. I ended up winning 16 years flatland & Masters flatland while getting 3rd in 16 years ramp while Ryan won the 14 & under ramp class at a mere age of 8 years old.

Thanks to Matt Holmes from 2020 BMX magazine for the bringing back the cool memories that seem so long ago.

Fantastic Plastic pedals update

OK… it’s been more than a while since we started working on these but they are ready to ship now, finally. Please click here for full details on these babies. Expect them in stores all around the world, early in the new year. Good things do come to those who wait & thanks for those who have been waiting patiently.

Epic Invasion

The other day I picked myself up a copy of Epic Invasion while I was at Ride On BMX. I forgot that I even bought it after the Corona’s at Steve’s shop & today I got around to watching it for the first time. I was rather impressed & gotta say it lived up to the hype around it. Troy did a great job on the overall DVD & was stoked to see Zac Miner’s killer section & even an appearance from Alex Hiam. Stoked. Do yourself a favour & pick yourself up a copy now, you wont be disappointed.


Yo yo !!

Product highlight – Bloody Oath frame

Our 2009 model Bloody Oath frame has been out for a few months now & it’s much improved over the 2008 model. It’s lighter, stronger & refined. Weighing in at a mere 4.4lbs or 1,936grams for the 21″ version, it’s one of the lighter frames out there today. Check out the specs here for the full scoop or check one out at a bike shop near you now.

Fresh ride for Mark

Mark Mathews-Frederick is the guy who does all my CAD drawings for Colony & recently put together a swag of new parts on his Sect. Mark loves to play around with different paint jobs & colour schemes & I think this is one of his best yet. Check it out below. Plus we got an action pic of him putting his bike to good use… Yo yo !!

Poker night at Toby’s

The other night we had a poker night at Toby Mathews’ house with one of the new poker sets we have out now. Toby even had a cool table made with felt complete with a Colony logo. It was a fun night except that I was the second to be out in the game & then had to watch all night, I suck at poker. In the end, it came down to Matt King & Toby Mathews, with Toby taking the win & the $400 pot. Matt scored himself the poker kit we played on. Good times.

Jonny Devine update

Jonny sent me a little update from over in the UK today & it seems he had a little mishap with his ankle… see the pic below. He will be back on the bike in no time but still looks rather painful. The weather has gone to shit over there as Jonny put it & said that it’s all just indoor park riding right now. All good though as he has a few to choose from which he will be back riding soon enough. Jonny also just put our new Colonial Cranks & Teddy Bars on his bike from Alans BMX & loves them. Thanks Jonny!

Mick Bayzand in Vancouver

Mick had this edit made up from his footage collected in Vancouver so far. He says this is the stuff he doesn’t want in the Colony team DVD that we are working on. Damn… can’t wait to see what he produces for the real deal. Check it.
