For 2013 the Miner Frame has been refined with a few key features such as smaller drop outs, thicker gauged tubing throughout to withstand even more abuse, slightly taller stand over height & now comes with external gussets on the top & down tubes.

Brisbane life

I’ve spent the past 3 weeks in Brisbane filming a bunch of future web video stuff. Today is my last day here before I start the solo 1,900km drive home. It’s been a blast so I thought I would post up a few photos from some of the times out filming…

Simon update

Simon shot through a quick update, he always seems to be travelling which is awesome!

“Just flew home from Japan acouple days ago, had a great time catching up with riding friends. Got to see a pretty cool festival the day before I flew out. Now got my sights set on getting ready for the ‘Redbull Circle of Balance’ back in Japan in September.”

I wanted to do a all dirt edit with a glide cam to give it a new style feel that you normally don’t see with dirt edits.
It was filmed over one weekend but I really need to thank Woodward West, Heath Pinter and Steven Murray for letting me ride there jumps. Filmed and edited by Casey McPerry.

A very wet worlds…

Both Anton McGuirk & Peta Shepherd made seperate journey’s to the recent worlds in Cologne, Germany only to be rained out. Here are some words from Peta on her trip…

The comp park finals got cancelled… It was raining to much. So I didn’t even get to ride…. Sucked!! But I got to meet Hoffman and Haro which made up for it a little.Some of the girls that entered got to ride the indoor that was close by, for a girls only 2hrs session on Saturday. It was really rad riding with that many amazing bmx girls.
