Dane’s Jam

A few of us headed to the Dane Searls trails jam in Canberra yesterday. It was a dialed session with everyone getting crazy on the jumps. A few people came un stuck including Bayzand but I think all that did would still be stoked that they were apart of the day. I know Luke Parker was doing these cannonball’s.


Woodward West shootout

We had a ball being at Woodward West for the week, hopefully this video shows that. Be sure to click here and vote for us aswell. Massive thanks to Black Board Minds for the music, Check more of there tunes here.

Zac Miner update

Zac shot through some recent updates along with a pic of his fresh new rig. Full bike check coming soon.

I just got back from an eventful weekend down the coast with a good bunch of the lads from Canberra, it was Bdog from Backbone’s bucks party and we headed down to Wollongong for the night, shit got good to say the least, everyone woke up a little worse for wear. We managed to get a few little rides in between everyone being well liquored and the rain pissing down. Got my new whip together, actually that stoked on it! The new wasp hubs run like a treat, was flying around with out barely putting in a crank. Love the new set up. Was such a good weekend! Congrats to Bdog.

Amigos of Holmes on November 30th

As you may or may not be aware, Matt Holmes of 2020 BMX Magazine, has been going through some rather serious life threatening health issues battling cancer. Matt started 2020 BMX Magazine back in the late 1990’s & has helped grow the awesome BMX scene we have in Australia today. Right now he needs everyone’s support to get through this which we know he will.

A fund raising event has been planned & set for November 30th, here in Brisbane at the skatepark in Jindalee. There are more set for other venues in the months ahead around Australia as well. We here at Colony have of course got behind the movement with support to help raise funds for Matt & his growing medical bills. I urge anyone that can, please come along on November 30th & give what you can.

Check here for more info on the website set up for

Check out this parody video put together to raise awareness for the fund raisers. Remember, it’s all just in good fun. See you on the 30th November.

Ryan & Chris at the PLAY contest

Both Ryan and Chris have some amazing clips in this video from Vital and the Play contest over in Florida.

Play 2013: Entire Yard – More BMX Videos

Advert – Clint Millar

How many BMX brand owners who are 39 years old are still out there killing it? Not that many I would say but I can honestly say Millar is riding better now then I have ever seen him ride in the past 6 or 7 years that I’ve known him. He features in our current 2020 advert with thanks to Brian Castillo for shooting this. That makes it even better that “technically” competing brands can put everything aside and work together and enjoy BMX for what it truly is.


Jourdan Instagram Slam

Jourdan‘s been smashing it on a TCU trip right now and the crew dropped this Instagram Slam today with some hammers throughout

Woodward West Shootout 2013

Next week you can check out the videos from the 2013 Woodward West shootout which we were involved in, everyone put in some solid work and had a blast so we can’t wait for the video to be released.


Web Advert – Alex Hiam

We shot this indian super seaty in Millars backyard last week with Alex on his new bike going hard straight up. The Sweet Tooth now has a lower stand over height along with the 19.8 having a lower height again to suit the younger crew wanting to hit it on a Sweet Tooth. More information about Alex’s frame can be found here.


Chris Courtenay in Florida

Chris just hit up the Play comp in Florida and shot through this update about the whole deal.

Quick trip to Florida for the Play Bmx Contest, super grateful to get an invite to this as was such an amazing contest. Finished up 7th which I was psyched on and also got to experience a bit of the day to day Florida life which all I can say is if you get the chance check it out for sure! Now at the airport back to Cali for another month before I come home!
