Colony flatland program…

Way back in 1988 when I started riding, I primarily rode flatland. I was however one of the few riders that rode flatland & also did ramp, street & dirt back then. Given my links to flatland back in the day, it was natural that I wanted to do a flatland range within Colony as a company. Especially when good friends of mine Shane Badman & Simon O’Brien were without support at the time it made perfect sense to help them out.

Over the years we have supported flatland as much as we can. It’s no secret that the flatland market is a small one indeed. Through our strong position within BMX as a whole we have been able to support this for some time but at some point we needed the flatland program to support itself. Unfortunately this has not been the case & after much deliberation & sadness we have had to pull the plug on our flatland program.

We will still support Shane, Simon & Shintaro as much as possible with our products but we will no longer be making any new flatland products moving forward.

The guys at Flatland Fuel still have some stocks while they last so if there is something you want before it’s all gone, I would at fast.

I would like to take this time to thank everyone for their support throughout the years, we’ve had some of the best riders on the planet ride some of our products & that is amazing to think about. So thanks for the good times & may the they continue into the future. You never know… we may bring out some very, very limited edition flatland products from time to time.

“Costa Mesa is such a good place 5 min ride to Guettlers, 10 min ride to the beach. The weather is so nice. I’ve been rolling around the streets since I was in guettlers neighborhood, when I seen him in the street window. Such a sick 3 nac!! Going to meet up with him tomorrow, which will be sweet. Stayed tuned.”

UK Trip day 6

The last day of the trip and it was spent down at the new Premier BMX shop in London. The shop has only been open for about 4 months but it looks well established and dialed. Thanks to everyone who came out and hung with us at all the stops, we had a blast!

UK Trip day 5

Another day another dialed bike shop, Crucial BMX in Bristol was large, had some real cool staff and looked the goods. After Crucial we hit up a local vintage park that was fun and filled with Characters.

UK Trip day 4

Today was a whirlwind day, it started off at Alans BMX shop which was a large shop with plenty of cool kids. Then off to Wales to visit DKA Wheels and Deeside park, the park was pretty fun with a dialed bowl. Then it was off to the famous Rampworx, without a doubt the best indoor park I have ever been to. Besides the ridiculous amount of lines to do and ramps to ride the vibe there was awesome! Thanks to everyone who helped us out at the stops.

UK Trip day 3

We hit up Foundation BMX shop which had a good crew behind it and seems well established for only being around for three years. After the shop we hung out with the locals at the park for the afternoon which was crazy seeing how many riders were local there.

That evening we hit up The Arc indoor park, once again a good crew of riders were out which made for a good session along with an after hours session where some serious shit went down. Thanks to everyone that came out.

Simon off to Circle of Balance

Simon shot through this photo of him getting everything dialed in for the up and coming Redbull Circle of Balance in Japan.


You may remember earlier this year some of the guys went to China and put out this awesome web video. Cooper just posted up a collection of photos from that trip up on Modicalimited which you guys should enjoy.

Yo yo !!

UK Trip day 2

DRIVING! We seemed to drive all day, stopping at Decoy park for a little bit but after getting a flat on the freeway we didn’t have much time to ride with the locals before we had to haul it to LiferBMX. It was a crazy drive on a road that was barely wide enough for one car let alone two! Sam lost his mirror when we side swiped a campervan! It seemed like we were in the middle of nowhere but as soon as we got to LiferBMX it was an amazing site, so many riders to be at any shop let alone one in such a small community. Lifer is one dialed shop and run by good people who gave us great hospitality.

UK Trip day 1

The first day of the trip after getting over jetlag and we headed out to Hastings to visit Source BMX. This place is dialed and has a crazy bowl setup inside the shop and an even wilder setup in the backyard. After we hung out there it was onto the bowl up the street which got a bit of a work out. Today we head onto Decoy.

Zac’s new ride

Zac got a fresh setup just before he heads off to the USA to hang out with Ryan and visit Vegas! That Midnight Blue colour is hot!
