Product highlight – Hell Stallion & Forks

Liam Fahy-Hampton is the kind of rider who always surprises me with something different every time I see him ride. He definately looks outside the square & comes up with some really original ideas on & off the bike.

His signature frame & fork were designed with that same principal in mind. His frame is low, super responsive & super tough. His forks are built to withstand the torture that his brand of riding produces on a daily basis.

Check them out at a shop near you now or check our products section here & here for more info.

Greetings from Taipei

I am over in Taipei right now for the trade show here & thought I would share a couple random pics with you all.

In a parking lot full of scooters & the worlds tallest building, the Taipei 101.

Rhysty, myself, Niki, Ashoal & his girl friend. Also saw this sign warning not to pull cows horns or they may fart? haha.

Yo yo !!


Guettler took a bunch of product pics for me a few weeks ago. This is one of my favourites of them, it’s so very tempting to put a new bike together with all these new colours. All these parts & more are available at a store near you now.

Alex Hiam gets promoted

13 year old Alex Hiam has been promoted up to the rankings of our pro team & is being graced with his very first international Colony advert. Expect to see this in magazines such as Ride BMX, 2020, Dig & Focalpoint. In the months ahead expect some more big news about Colony & Alex… more on that one later.

Oh, by the way. We will finally have our team section of the website over hauled real soon too… been way over due on this one.

Product highlight – Pivotal Seats

These days with the many Pivotal seats available on the market it’s kinda hard to come out with anything new or different. Well, we have done our bit to try to do something a little different & have come out with a coloured plastic base seat using the Pivotal patented technology. Check one out at a store near you now. Available in both Slim & Mid styles.


Yo yo !!

Product highlight – Official Stem

Ryan Guettler’s Official stem is still one of my favourite products we have put out since we started as a company a few years ago. I guess it’s just the mixture of it’s unique look, clean design, light weight & overall finish of the stem that I like so much. Many other riders out there must feel the same since our stem is one of the most popular stems on the market. Check one out at a store near you now & see what you think yourself.

Guettler at the race track?

Ryan just sent me a cool email about him going racing… what? Read on below.

I just got done with the ’09 Winter Nationals in Phoenix, AZ. I arrived back from Australia on Monday and Jerry Badders (Vans team manager) asked if I wanted to watch him race in Phoenix on the weekend and then fly to Greenville after.

I was down but as soon as I heard Nasty was going to race I wanted too also. Jerry got me a bike and full face and even went to Vans and got all matching long sleeves Tees. Jerry drove the Vans bus on Thursday and I stayed behind in Cali and rode Sheephills and got my berm and race sprints on then got a flight that night. On Friday we got to the race track, did a few starts but I soon realised I suck at gate starts. I was getting waxed by every man and his dog, even a little girl on a pink bike smoked me off the line!

Once I got going it was smooth racing though. Saturday might of been the funniest and fun day I’ve ever had. I never knew Nasty used to race and he is fast as, jumping the triples and easy won his class. My class was harder for me too win but I came through with a win and I’m pumped as.

Racing is super fun and I’m going to try and go to a lot more races. Thanks to every one who gave me pointers about gate starts and to Jerry, Vans shoes, Monster Energy and Mirra co for getting me a bike, helmet and loads of fun. Dig deep and pedal like you stole it hahahahha.




Yo yo !!

From Russia…

Our Russian team rider Oleg, (Bibu is his nickname) just sent me this cool web edit he put out recently. It has an artistic feel to it which is refreshing to see. Pretty cool stuff in there & good to see BMX is alive & well over there. Oleg also runs a really cool Russian BMX website, so if you can read Russian check it out here.

NYRM promo video

The guys over at NYRM have posted a cool promo video up on their blog. A pain the ass format to download but worth the hassle for sure.

Product highlight – Teddy Bars

Mick Bayzand is a street killer, there is no denying that fact. He takes more hard slams than almost anyone & still gets back up for more.

Mick rules & that one of the reasons we gave him his own signature bars late last year. Check them out in the new Bloody Black limited colour way below. These are available now while stocks last all over the planet.

Fantastic Plastic Pedals highlight

Our Fantastic Plastic pedals are available now in all good BMX stores near you & have already started to be on many bike shops best sellers lists. We wanted to make a pedal that was light weight, inexpensive & have a good grip. I think we achieved it but make your own decision on that fact. Check them out at a store near you now.

Colonial Cranks highlight

Our Colonial cranks have been out for a while now & have been getting a bit of a following out there, partly due to their simple light weight design. Our cranks feature a 2.5 piece design utilising one bolt to hold them all together. Check out our products section for full details by clicking here.
