Simon O’Brien checks in…

Simon has been keeping busy of late with a few projects such as his next solo DVD which I am sure will be amazing. Can’t wait to see that one.

He also recently just got back from Sydney doing some demos at a b-boy break dance event. He said it was amazing with some of the best breakers in the world there. He also clocked some footage there as the scenery was amazing.

Simon also put together a couple new bikes based around his DejaVu frame, one for street/ramp & the other for flatland. Check them out below.

Peta Shepherd checks in…

Peta Shepherd dropped by the office today to pick up a new bike. She will soon be rolling on a brand new Teddy frame in our Candy Red decked out in all our new parts.

Peta also showed me her dislocated finger which she suffered the other day while riding, ouch. She will be off the bike for a couple weeks but this will give her time to get the new bike together. So all good. Check back for pics of her new bike soon. Photo credit on the tailwhip nosepick goes to Renee Junga, thanks Renee !!


In other news… our good friend Angela also put together a new Teddy frame in Purple Storm. Check it out below, looking the goods for sure.

I am very pleased & proud to announce the introduction of Australia’s premiere online flatland specific BMX store, Newcircle.

Long time friends Shane Badman & Ross Lavender have teamed up to bring riders in Australia, a place to get all their flatland needs from Colony & much more in the future. They are also set up to export to the world to any country. I believe this is going to be a huge benefit to the local flatland scene & I am excited as to what the future may bring.

Click here to find out all about Newcircle now & while you are there support some fellow Aussie riders & buy some stuff !!
