Zac Miner – Thanks for the good times…

Zac Miner decided to take a step back from the PRO side of things within BMX so we wanted to send him off right with a video of all his most recent un-seen footage. We had some fun trips with Zac all around the world which I will miss but thankfully our friendship doesn’t end here so the good times will continue no doubt…

Be sure to check out his section in the Backbone BMX dvd that recently came out it’s a wild one!

Thanks to B-Dog for the additional clips.

Mick Bayzand @ Noble Park

Mick Bayzand update

Hey Guys,

Over here in Melbourne we have been lucky enough to have some new parks pop up of late. Last weekend myself and the boys went and hit the new Noble Park skate park, it’s a pretty epic park with something for everyone from big bowls to really fun jib rails. we filmed a little mixtape there which I have a few clips in so be on the look out for that. I also have some clips in another mixtape that’s about to drop soon.

Also with daylight savings on its way and summer coming I am working on another solo web edit and also a special project with Cooper Brownlee I am real pumped on.

So dont be lazy, get out there on your bike. have fun, keep learning and get creative.

Nathan Sykes update

What a great month! Cooper just left and headed back to Oz but while he was here we had the chance to do a trip to Canada. Had the best of times riding and hanging out with all the shredders up north. Shop stops and skate parks in Vancover were to good! Defenitly can’t wait to make another trip back.

Been working on a seat promo video. Been really excited about the release of my Colony X Locals Only seat. Cooper and i have been plugging away at that and hope to have a wrap on it this month.

Lots of good things to come as I just started working a new project I have wanted todo for a long time. As that unfolds I will have more details, but for now its just ride and seek and enjoy every moment inbetween!

Simon O’Brien update

Just a little update of what i’ve been up to of late……..

I’ve been doing a lot of recovering from being unwell towards the start of the year, which has involved finishing off study ( Diploma in Safety / WHS ) , getting back on the bike and finding work in my not so booming area.

I recently got hooked up on American clothing company ‘Biggest and Baddest’ who are right down my alley being all about hip hop, graff and breakdancing! I love their style and direction. Be sure to check them out everyone…such good quality!

I’m hanging out for the release of Colony’s EXON flatland line, it’s gonna be great! I’ve been working on a dvd section for Stewart Munro, which is good motivation.

Also starting to film for a section for Viki Gomez for the Tokyo film festival, I also have an upcoming art gig which will be different and fun. And heading to LA and Denver in October. Busy with my BMX which is great!

Alex Hiam – Day in the Life

More from Alex over in California in the form of a day in the life video. Good to see him doing well over there and making the most of it.

Genesis Crew Mixtape

Jack Kelly has a few clips in this new Mixtape from the Sydney based crew, the whole thing is well worth a watch…

Product update – Pursuit Sprocket

For years now, I’ve wanted to make some products here in Australia for Colony. But it’s proven much more difficult & less viable than expected. Sad but true, it’s not that easy to have BMX products made here in our country.

But, I am stoked to release first images of our prototype Pursuit Sprocket here made by Input for us, right here in Australia.

Inspired by the legendary stock steel pursuit wheels on many a iconic Australian car.

Full details will be released over the weeks ahead. They will be available in limited supplies towards the end of the year.

Sweet pursuities bro…



Yo yo !!

FOD session

We met up with Alex at the FOD trails yesterday evening for a golden hour session and it was a real treat! Shooting photos during this time of day in California is priceless. Alex was pretty beat from the day before but he still got a session in and Nathan was doing kickouts and tables as usual…




Street Jam in France

We are supporting the street jam going down in Lyon, France in a few months. No doubt this is going to be a good time.

Product update from Taiwan

Over in Taiwan once again & thought you would all like to see this behind the scenes look at our Official Stems being made. Every step of the way from the original idea, to sketch on paper, through to the beautiful CNC machine detail you see here makes out stems stand out from the rest. Designed in Australia, made to perfection in Taiwan.

We headed out to Oriol Bike Shop on Saturday for the street jam which was amazing. So many riders came out and held it down at all the spots we rode. Shoutout to the guys who made it happen.




Sunny days

Alex Hiam update

Hey guys! I am currently in California for the next 2 months with Boyd Hilder. We are here riding the U.S. open Vans invitational Bowl contest at Huntington Beach this week! It’s gonna be a hella good time lots of sunshine and smiles. We are staying at Ryan Guettlers for the next week then going else where after that!!!

The past week I have had a hurt foot from getting my foot caught in the frame/crank doing a fakie. So I have been resting it But the physios at the vans contest are treating me and I have just started to ride again for this contest. Hope it holds up!!! Today was our first practice, I’m really liking the course !!
