Ryan checks in…

Guettler sent in a quick email on what he has been up to of late & a few pics…

I’ve been on the road for about 3 weeks now havin a blast went to Germany and Amsterdam. Just got done with the ASA box jump comp now I’m in Cali tonight and fly to Japan tomorrow. The box jump comp was a super fun comp I can’t believe I won it, I’m so happy. Everyone was having the best time.

Tomorrow I’m going to Japan I’ve always wanted to ride in Japan, seems like a wild place so I cant wait. I’ll keep you updated.

Having Fun,

Ryan.

Haimona & Colony part ways

Haimona Ngata has been a part of Colony for almost as long as Colony has been around but today he leaves our family. Everything is still totally cool & I must thank Ho for all his support these past years & wish him the very best in what ever may be ahead for him.

I am looking forward to the next time we can polish off a bottle of Black Sambucca & talk shit about mowing the lawn in Boks, haha. Only Haimona will understand that one. Thanks for everything mate !! You rule.

Stitches please!

Richo got 6 stitches to his chin today after a feeble on a round rail went a little bit wrong. All good though as he will be riding again in a few days. On another note, Alex Hiam did his first street rail today, so stoked.

Dirty Drains Jam

Today Richo, Alex, Cooper Brownlee & myself went to the Dirty Drains Jam in Brisbane. It was a really good turn out & a good vibe as well. I got way too much sun but still had fun none the less. Here is a pic of Richo in the long jump comp that went down. It was a great day & a everyone had a good time. It was good to see everyone having a good time in one place.

Product highlight – Cube Frame

I have known Shane Badman ever since we started out as penpals (yes, before email existed) & we would write letters back & forth exchanging flatland trick tips & riding photos for years there. I am very stoked to have Shane as an integral part of the Colony flatland program & even more stoked to be able to offer Shane his first signature frame, the Cube.

Shane is known to be rather tough on frames, or any part for that matter, so we set out to make him a bullet proof flatland frame that would hold up to his brand of riding. I think we achieved it with this frame. For the full details click here now.

While you’re at it, you might as well check out the new Australian Flatland blog by clicking here as well.

Product highlight – Oneway Pegs

Some say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. One thing that cannot be denied is that our Oneway Pegs have their imitators out there in the market place. Since we first bought out the ‘thicker on the bottom & thinner on the top’ design, our pegs have caused more than a few companies to follow suit. Check them out at a store near you now in either 7075 Alloy & 4140 heat treated Crmo. You can click here now for the full details online.
