New 2020 mag…

The new & quite possibly the greatest issue of 2020 will soon be available… look out for this cover in newsagents & BMX shops soon. We have a strong presence in this new issue, with a feature story on our independence as a brand, an interview with Simon O’Brien & his new DVD due soon as well as featured products & our new double page advert format featuring none other than Mick Bayzand.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner !!

The winner for our light hearted fun online comp on my 3 other most favourite things besides my VW Type 3 & my wife, was Mick Cvetkovic from Victoria. He will soon receive in the mail 5 x pairs of LFH grips for his efforts. There really was no correct answer but he guessed pretty good. 1. Bundy. 2. BMX. 3. Colony BMX. Thanks to everyone that entered.

Mick will soon be doing smith’s like this holding onto LFH grips.

Pete Radivo goodness…

Here is some almost ancient Pete Radivo footage from around 9 years ago. Edited by his brother Dao Radivo back in the day & now released for all to see. Some really good stuff in there for sure. Can’t wait till Pete gets back on the bike after his recent knee surgery… won’t be long now.

This has nothing to do with Colony what so ever but damn it’s crazy. So good.

Know The Team – Alex Hiam.

We are starting a new series of online mini interviews with the team riders so that you get to know them a bit more and where they are from. First up is Alex Hiam… read on.



What are you up to today Alex?

I went to school till 1 came home and it started raining ! So nothing at all!

What year are you in at school?

In year 10.

What is your favourite subject at school?
My favourite subject is probably engineering or art.

Tell us something about yourself people probably don’t know…

This is a hard one! Well I hate reading, rain and scooters and I love skate 2, art and icey poles.

Although you are only young mate, you have travelled around a fair bit, what has been your favourite trip so far and why?

That would defInately have to be the colony road trip to Melbourne from Brisbane! So fun!

You are addicted to eating lollies, what is your favourite type?

Nah not really ! More like red-bull haha. My favourite lollie would have to be yuppie hot-dogs or sour worms!

What spot/park have you been stoked on riding lately?

Flemington banks when it’s street and Kuraby and Beenleigh with skatepark!

Come ride with Tim Wood tomorrow…

At the Nerang Skatepark there is a workshop and jam with Tim Wood tomorrow, Saturday the 13th of March 10-11.30am for the workshop and 11.30-1.00pm for the open jam session.

Old Alex Hiam video…

Not too sure when this was made but must be at least 3 years old now back when Alex was around 11-12 years old. Enjoy. Spotted over on the Crossley Cycles website.

New Tee Shirts!

We are pretty stoked on how these came out. These will be shipping to Australian stores next week. Check with your favourite BMX store for them then.


Henrique web video and bike check!

Henrique Castro sent us over this edit from his local park, it is well filmed and edited. I wish we had an undercover park like that down here in Melbourne right now. You can also check out a nice bike check of his new Colony setup here.

Ryan checks in…

Got a quick update from Guettler

I just got back from Australia. Had such a cool time while I was home spent a lot of time with the family. I’m in Phoenix right now doing a Vans road trip to get photos and video but we started the trip at a BMX race. I ended up getting 3rd in the Vans team race and Nasty won, it was such a cool time. I’ll keep you updated on how this trip goes… Ryan.

Welcome to the team…

Chris Courtenay !! I have been watching his riding progress the past 18 months or so & always wanted to offer him a spot on the team. Well that time has finally come & Chris will now join the flow team for starters & I am sure it won’t be long before Chris is rewarded for his efforts. Welcome aboard mate & I look forward to the years ahead.

Chris is shown below picking up his new ride… Teddy frame packed full of our 2010 parts ranges. Can’t wait to see him skying aboard a Colony.

Shintaro wins in Canada !!

Shintaro Misawa won the Flatland Unlimited 6 comp in Toronto on the weekend, so stoked to hear that news. He really has been doing so well on the flatland circuit of late & I am sure the successes will keep coming. Congrats once again mate, you rule !! Thanks to Newcircle for the heads up.

Alex the boss…

Alex Hiam dropped by the office the other day & looked right at home in the bosses chair. Who know’s one day hey?


Yo yo !!

Cooper is a busy man…

Cooper Brownlee is one of the most busiest men in BMX in this country. Between his team managerial, art director & photographic duties with Colony & running Focalpoint magazine/website how does he find time to ride still? Somehow he does & here is some proof if you needed more. Thanks to James Patterson for the photo.


Yo yo !!

Zac Miner.

As the post below states, some of the team is in Melbourne this weekend. We had a fun ride yesterday and while we were at it we shot this sequence of Zac, he went to over ice back down the rail after it aswell. Goodtimes!


Us vs Them… is today !!

Riders from Colony are confirmed as Alex Hiam, Zac Miner, Mick Bayzand & myself. See you there !!

Product highlight – Female Clone Hubs

We now offer our Clone Cassette hubs in a female bolt style version. Our design is a little different than some others out there. They feature a 3mm section of the 14mm axle that protrudes into the drop outs. This creates a much cleaner & stronger design we feel. If you run pegs you just use 10mm versions on the rear to suit the 10mm hardened CrMo bolts supplied.

You can also get these female hubs laced up in our complete Clone wheels sets as well. These are available in Australia now & worldwide very soon.
