Zac Miner signature frame…

Zac Miner has been killing it for a while now & clocking some serious clips of late for the cause. It was decided about 9 months ago that Zac would get his own signature frame with us. Well deserved for sure. I am proud to introduce the first sneak peaks of the Miner. Zac just got his together a few days ago & is loving it so far. These will be in stores worldwide come September this year. Check back soon for more info… thanks to the guys at Backbone for the photos. Click here now to read more about Zac on the Backbone site.

Peta Shepherd fund raiser tee…

About 6 weeks ago we posted some bad news about Peta Shepherd falling hard & being taken to hospital. Well we wanted to help her out in some kind of way & one way we thought was to work with Peta on a special limited edition tee shirt with proceeds going towards her dental bills. She is recovering well & in fact rode only 2 weeks later. She still has a long road to full recovery with a mountain of bills.

Cooper & Peta worked together to bring this design to you, Peta wanted something that showed what BMX meant to her so this photo which was shot about six years ago in Portland (USA) on a roadtrip that Cooper was on, all the bikes and crew piled up in the back of a pick up truck travelling around towns hitting up parks and just enjoying BMX for what it is.

It will be available in Australia only through our dealer network across the country though due to logistics. For every tee shirt sold, we will donate $5.00 to Peta to help pay her bills. These will be available next week around the country at your favourite Colony dealer.
