Random Photo #755

Spotted this on Facebook of Chris Courtenay that Ryan Guettler shot recently. Stoked to see Chris back riding after a long long knee injury.

Simon O’Brien demo

Simon recently did a demo in Orange, NSW & the trip there took much longer than expected due to flooding in the area. The 6 hour journey turned into 11 hours but he made it OK even though his car nearly died. The demo was fun though even with the small bouncy stage he had to ride on.

Random Photo #754

This one is of Marnold at the Lilydale bowl jam that went down on Friday night in Melbourne.

Rayyan checks in…

Our flatland guru in Japan, Rayyan Ibrahim (formally known as Shintaro Misawa) was in Malyasia recently for a comp there at a festival called Kulsign. He did well enough to get 2nd place behind Mat Dagu who also rides for us through our Singapore connection, 20 Inch Circle. Good to see the guys out there killing it, congrats !!

Trade in a Scooter promo… re-launched

Seems a few people out there got rather upset about our plan to trade in scooters on a BMX purchase. This was never the intention & as such would like to re-launch our program.

This promo was aimed more at scooter riders that are moving into BMX and to get them psyched on riding. The comment about getting rid of scooters was more a joke about how many scooters there are at parks here in Australia. We are sorry for any confusion we caused with the way we previously worded this giveaway.

A couple people had a good idea to donate any of the scooters sent in to a charity which we will now do.

Thanks and sorry again for any confusion.

* Purchase any 2011 Colony complete bike between December 1st & January 10th, 2011.
* Post in a rideable scooter, along with a copy of your purchase receipt for your new bike, along with your
full return contact details. All rideable scooters received will be donated to a charity of our choice.
* We will send you a free ‘Welcome to BMX’ package worth over $100.00 retail of Colony products.
* Offer valid to the first 50 scooters received by January 14th, 2011.
* One scooter trade in per bike purchased only.
* Only valid to Australian purchases within Australia.
* Send your scooter to…
