Raen BMX – Russian for BMX

Raen BMX is a major Colony dealer in Russia & helps out many riders over there. One such rider is Sergey Tkachenko, who they help with Colony parts which we are stoked about. Check out this video below which gives you a small taste of his riding & what Colony parts he runs. Thanks to Raen BMX for the support for Colony & for helping out Sergey.

Broc Raiford injury report

Broc Raiford is over in Cali on a riding trip right now & broke his scaphoid bone in his right wrist on a fall at some trails. This cuts his planned trip short & he is heading back home now to get surgery. We wish you the fastest recovery mate.

Zac Miner photo #921

Random photo of Zac Miner from early last year in Melbourne. If you are wondering what he is doing in this, he rides along the edge of the left side gapping across to the right side transition. You can see a bunch more team photos on our Flickr page.

Dealer highlight – Little Black Bike

I had the pleasure of visiting Matt & Jack from Little Black Bike earlier this week down in Adelaide, South Australia.

I gotta say Matt runs a very tight ship down there & his store is very impressive. A very well laid out store that is very welcoming. It also has the cleanest work shop I have ever seen !! The scene down there seems really cool as well with some amazing city sanctioned trails, great parks & good street. Liam Zingbergs is supported by the guys as well, so you know they are on it.
