Alex Hiam update

Alex has been a busy man over in the USA. He just shot through this update…

Hey Guys !!!

Just got back from “Tabes for the Babes” Tour to Tuscon, Arizona With a bunch of rad dudes. We broke down on the first night of the tour because the brakes failed, So we had to stay in a small town can san tee for two nights until the brakes were fixed on the RV… We were super lucky to find a nice enough mechanics to lend us a car for those two days for us to get around town.. After the brakes were fixed we were back on the road and made it safely to Arizona..

It was over 40+ Degree heat in Tucson and we were riding concrete parks all day everyday, It was exsaugthing but so fun.. Ian took us to shoot all his guns one day as-well which was so much fun !!!

The last day I rode Recon Tour At premise park, And ended up Placing 2nd in Open.. The comp was soo crazy there were over 30 riders in Open And everyone was riding so good !!! Finals was getting so intense and every one was throwing down bangers…

I Had the best time ever !!! Massive thanks to Ryan Guettler for taking all of us on this tour and a massive thanks to Premise Park and Ian !!!!

Also I shot a bunch of photos with the photographer from RIDEbmx and he is doing a 8 page story about the trip and the web video will be out soon!! I also just got invited to ride the Vans US open HB invitational comp on the 27th of this month!! Sooo happy and stoked.

Bobbie Altiser – Ten Clips

So out of nowhere I got an email from Bobbie telling me he had filmed a ten clips. The next day I have a file ready for download and I just knew there would be some treats in it. Bobbie didn’t disappoint and continues his ever progressing and creative riding. Thanks to Dylan Crane for filming this.

Advert – Tom Stretton

Tom scores the latest print advert in the current Albion mag. I love this shot because it was taking Tom a few shots to get this clip and the one time he gets it was when all the school kids came along and stopped to watch, they were so interested in it.

New distribution in the USA

I am pleased to announce to the BMX world some big news regarding us here at Colony BMX.

Starting from the 2014 season, so meaning from approx. September 1st this year, we will be switching up our distribution outlet in the USA. Sidewall will no longer be our distributor.

We will be doing something not yet done by any BMX brand in the industry & we will be opening our own distribution company in another country. Based in California, we will be handling exclusive distribution duties to all US based dealers. We are very excited about this progressive move forward.

What will this mean for the average rider out there? It will mean finally you will be able to get Colony products in all good US dealers country wide. No longer will our products be very hard to locate & purchase. It also means our products will be more affordable then ever before, something all riders will appreciate.

What will this mean for the US dealers out there? It will mean you will have good continuous supply, great service & strong back up support for all our products. Something we feel very strongly about.

We have none other than, legend Keith Treanor coming into the family to run things for us in the USA. Keith’s managing role will be handling all the duties associated with this new venture. To have someone like Keith involved is an amazing honour & we are really excited about it all.

Being that we will have an office in California, will also mean marketing wise you will see a much stronger presence of Colony out there. Finally we will be able to support our riders in the USA how we want too.

Full details will be released in the weeks ahead but expect to see a lot more of Colony in the months & years ahead in the USA. Thing’s are about to get real.

You can also read a short interview about it all over on The Come Up by clicking here now.

FTLT coming to an end

Well for me this trip has been a solid 4 weeks of filming and driving and although the past week has been from home it has still felt like a trip. In the very early hours of tomorrow morning both Brandon and Jourdan will be heading back home overseas and Tom headed back to Brisbane this evening. It’s been a blast and we got some really solid footage. Here are a couple photos from just before of the guys packing up and chilling watching all the footage from the past weeks.

Today is a year to the day that this ten clips was filmed with boss man Millar, how time flies when you’re having fun. A new one is being filmed today as well, so keep an eye out for that. #frontbrakes

Product highlight – Anyway Plastic Pegs

Our Anyway Plastic Pegs have been in the works for a while now & are finally out in Australia & Canada. Other markets will have them in September / October this year.

Featuring an alloy core with a replaceable plastic sleeve these babies will slide on almost any surface with ease. They are that little bit longer too, making them great for crooked grinds and other tricks. All at a great price too. So check them out at a Colony dealer near you now.

A few guys on the team are actually running these pegs without the plastic sleeves for those who are weight conscious. They are crazy light & perfect for park use without the sleeves.
