Product highlight – Twenty Four Seven Bars

Cooper Brownlee has been graced with his first signature product in the way of his own bars. Aptly named because if you know Cooper, you know that his life is BMX 24/7. He never stops. Whether it’s behind the camera, in front of the camera, behind the laptop & on the bike. Cooper lives & breathes BMX. It’s for this reason we all love him.

Measuring in at 8.75″ high, 29.5″ wide with 12 degrees back sweep & 1 degree of up sweep, the Twenty Four Seven Bars should tick all the right boxes. Check them out at your nearest Colony dealer in Australia & the USA now with other countries very soon.

Brock Olive LUX edit.

Some hammers in this for sure! Brock Olive edit for his shop sponsor LUX.

Shane Badman checks in…

Shane Badman sent in an email about what he has been up to of late…

“After having my arm operation in May to get some issues worked out (I had my bionic, Terminator style arm installed), I’ve been keeping things on the downlow while it’s been healing up. As any rider knows, downtime seriously sucks. When you see all of your mates and everyone around you riding and you can’t… it’s tough! But I’ve been keeping busy with the store over at Newcircle and have done a few interviews on BMXflatlandAustralia and Offline Magazine out of Hungary which was super awesome.

Since I’ve slowly started to ride again in the past few weeks I’ve also been doing a few demos. I did one at the Bike and Lifestyle show in Brisbane and more recently got one done at a company called H2 Insurance Solutions for a launch party. The H2 Insurance gig was awesome – the guy Jason Holmes that runs it is fully down with BMX and action sports and is the guy who does the insurance for Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus when it tours Aus and also monster trucks. Stoked that I’m riding again haha!!”

Advert: Zac Miner

If you have a copy of the latest 2020 then you would have seen this advert we did with Zac promoting his new frame. It was actually the wedding parties idea for the photo, they loved it.

 

Marnold two clips?

Two for the price of one… spotted over on Focalpoint.

Nothing to do with BMX…

… but for anyone that knows me, knows that I like old school VW Type 3 Squareback’s. This here is one fine specimen.

Park cruising…

We had a pretty good day riding around yesterday. Valvo, Peta, Alex & myself rode a few of the various parks here in Brisbane & had a great time while doing so. Check out a few random pics from the day below, good times.

Welcome to Australia mate !!

Last night I picked up Valvo from Brisbane airport after his mammoth 36+ hour journey from Brazil. After some much needed sleep, we have come to the Colony office today & I took Valvo shopping in the warehouse for a new bike. His choice was our new 2012 Teddy V2 frame in Matte Black. He is putting it together right now & we will do a bike check later.

A big thanks to Marcelo & Andre from Dream BMX for helping get Valvo out here to Australia.
