Mick Bayzand digging deep

For the past couple months Mick and I have been heading down to the trails and helping out with the locals on some re-building of particular lines. Up until last week we hadn’t really rode them at all so it was great to get a session in and start filming for an up and coming project we are working on, Mick has already got some good stuff so we wanted to share one of the shots we captured last week.

Shoutout to the DCT locals for welcoming us into their home.



Nathan Dans cover

Nathan Sykes scored the latest Dans Comp catalogue cover along with a mini interview within the catalogue. Be sure to check it all out…


Canada Trip

A few of the crew are heading over to Vancouver in a couple weeks for a roll with the locals. First stop will be the 3Ride shop for a session. Keep an eye on our Instagram and the site for more updates but basically we will be hitting up a bunch of parks for the week, so come out for a ride. Thanks to KEA for making it happen.

Check the flyer below that the 3Ride crew put together for the day.


Chris Courtenay update

Quick check in guys. I Went to the ACTJAM the other weekend with the rest of the team and what an experience that was, such a great vibe & 110% will be back next year, I suggest anyone thinking of going should attend! Apart from that, been cruising around Brisbane riding a bunch. All the homies are out of town at the moment so if your around Brisbane and keen to ride be sure to hit me up! I’m always down. Also got some new web content coming to your eyes soon so keep an eye out. Here’s a few photos to follow my recent adventures.





Connor Keating @ Dew Tour

Props to Connor for placing 3rd at the recent Chicago Dew Tour Features AM event. Hopefully some footage surfaces from the comp…


Print Advert – Nathan Sykes

Below is the print advert from the latest RIDE BMX magazine. Featuring Nathan Sykes carving around a pool we rode back in Feb. I had to borrow Matt Cordova’s camera for this one so that we could sit the camera in the middle of the pool and shoot it from outside the pool as I didn’t have the cord for my camera. It took a few shots to get the timing right and to fit the entire shape of the pool in the image but I am stoked on how it came out and that we ended up using it for an advert. Go get yourself a copy of the mag and check it all out.

Bruno Faucon in Marseille

Bruno sent through some images shot by Louis Thomas from a jam in Marseille at a spot not usually rideable. But thanks to Justin Fouque the event was made possible, it looks like a cool spot…




Jack Kelly 2015 video

Jack dropped his Welcome To Pro video at the end of 2014. We started filming another project almost straight away and this is the end result. Filmed around Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.

Millar in Melbourne

Millar was in town for a couple days so we got out for a ride in the sun one day and snapped a few photos…






New Website

if you’re reading this then you’ve already noticed the site has had a complete re-design. We are really stoked on how it has come out. We are still adding in a few things here and there but it’s definitely worth clicking through the team pages along with the product pages to see some fresh new stuff! We hope you guys like it, more to come…



Alex Hiam FOX video

Wow, Wow…Wow! Alex went in! Shoutout to Troy Charlesworth and FOX for making this happen, it came out great. Alex really came through with some amazing creative moves in this video. Mr Hiam should be back on the bike in a few weeks just in time for his world trip so be on the look out for more goodies from him soon…

Bike Check – Connor Keating

Connor rep’s Colony over in Michigan via Albe’s. Here are a few images of his current ride. Connor is heading out to Chicago Dew tour this week so follow him on Instagram to keep up to date on his travels.




New Product – Locals Only seat

We worked with Nathan Sykes on his first signature product late last year and the end result is this fresh looking Locals Only colab seat. Locals Only is Nathan’s clothing brand he works on day in and day out when he isn’t roasting hips. The seat is available now if you live in Australia with the USA landing them early July and the rest of the world in August. I know this first drop of seats in Australia is pretty small so get in quick if you want one of these bad boys before the next drop in August.



Canberra trip Flipbook

With the biggest jam of the year going down in Canberra we knew we had to make the trip out with a good chunk of the crew. The following is a collection of images from the cold days we spent in the capital territory…

Thanks to LC for the additional photos.

Nathan Sykes update

It’s been a great month! Weather in California was a bit cool for a few weeks so that was a really nice to have treat! Been getting Wednesday sessions at Pala and a few days out riding pools. Been filming a bit and busy with Locals Only.

Bought a new motorcycle that I’m really excited about! 04′ Honda Shadow that I’m doing a bobber project with. Been a big learning curve. But so much fun building this with my hands. Can’t wait to cruise it to the trails with my bike on the back! Going to be a fun summer ahead!




Instavids – Alex Hiam

Alex is already coming good from his recent crash that ruptured his spleen and should be back on the bike later this month. Here we have a few clips that didn’t make the cut for his up coming FOX video. Filmed and edited by Troy Charlesworth.

Jack Kelly update

I recently flew to China for the Asian X-Games and managed to place 9th in street after qualifying for finals, very stoked with that result and the entire experience of it all. It’s so crazy to be hanging out/riding with dudes I look up to in a foreign country.

I also drove to Sydney last week with DJ and Coop to stay with Chris Whyte and to film for my next Colony web video which should be out very shortly. Thanks to Chris for letting us stay.





Bit of a re-edit of Mycek‘s section from the ALTER dvd. That DVD was such a good watch.

Chris Courtenay @ Ride On

Seeing as Chris works at Ride On you know he will have some local lines. Peep the video below to see Chris go to work for an hour with the place all to himself. Love that first clip so much…

Filmed by Jason Watts.

Moving on…

Justin Care decided to part ways with Colony this week, all on good terms I must say. We wish Justin all the best and it was a pleasure hanging out and riding with him every chance we could…
