Kenny in Japan

Kenny Raggett recently went to Japan with his wife Julie & were lucky enough to meet up with our long time friend Shoe-G. Good times were had by all from what Kenny said & had nothing good things to say about their Japanese experience. I gotta get myself back over there again sometime soon, it’s been way too long.

Shoe-G wrote this little story to share with everyone…

I first met Kenny back in 2000 in Greenville, NC. We stayed at Colin Mackay and Bruce Chrisman’s place & rode everyday and had tons of fun together for 2 weeks.
After that we didn’t meet for 9 years but we kept riding and saw coverage of each other in the BMX scene. Our memories and friendship has been tight ever since.
This time Kenny came to my house with his wife. I now have a wife and a daughter.

It was super wonderful to see him again. We are still tight after 9 years without seeing each other. Because we have a strong passion for BMX and we both share it. We are tight anytime we meet even after 10 or 20 years. BMX is more than a little bicycle, it can provide something so wonderful.


This photo of Shoe-G doing a flair is what he described as a HDR image (High Dynamic Range) Very interesting.

Shane also had this this to say…

After being out of Australia coming up to 4 years it’s good to be back. With so much that’s going on in the Australian Flatland scene with Newcircle & the Down Underground National Contest Series I’m so stoked to be getting involved & helping flatland grow even more!

I’m gonna be living in Brisbane which has one of the strongest scenes in Australia so loads is gonna be happening!

Crossley Cycles are online !!

Richard at Crossley Cycles was the first ever bike shop I went to when I got into this thing we call BMX. That was way back in 1988 & I have shopped there ever since.

Richard has helped me out beyond comprehension & I could never really pay him back for his support over the years. Thanks Richard !! It’s good to see him continuing this support towards riders like Alex Hiam these days.

Richard has always done things a little old school, so Cooper Brownlee (from Focalpoint BMX) & us here at Colony got together to get him a simple website going. Crossley’s are now in the 21st century, hooray !! Click here now to check out the website from one of the original BMX shops in Australia.

Six Four…

Earlier this year a store opened up in Perth called, Six Four Skate & Ride. Out of all the BMX brands out there they chose Colony as their one & only brand to carry, something we’re rather stoked on. Their store has a really neat boutique look about it which we’re really into. If you’re in the area make sure you drop in & check out our entire 2010 ranges including our complete bikes.
