Street assasin Liam Fahy-Hampton’s signature street frame, the Hell Stallion will soon be in Liam’s hands & will be getting put through it’s paces.

Transformer Lever Update


In the past I had reported that our Transformer Lever would only work best with a Dragonfly style dual cable. Well, we have since found out that Odyssey gyro cables or SST oryg cables work just as good if not better. You may just need to do a little modification & use a very small spacer in between the supplied push fit adaptor & lever body to take up the slack, if there is any. We have found that the length of these cables differs slightly & some individual cables may fit better than others. It also depends on the stack height of your headset & stem as to the suitablity.

Please know that our lever will work well with almost all Dragonfly dual cables, Odyssey gryo & SST oryg cables out there. This is very good news for lovers of our levers all over the world. Enjoy.

Nick’s signature bars are available right now in a selection of colours. There’s a limited edition Chrome which is available in the USA, France, the UK, New Zealand & Australia. There is also White & Clear Coat as well as Black available in selected countries. Get them while they last & maybe, just maybe, you will be able to do taybos like Richo.

Check out the products section for all the details including the massive 28.5′ width.

2008 Endeavor… soon

The 2008 Endeavor complete bikes will soon be shipping… finally. The long awaited 2008 Endeavor will be available in Australia first in late September, with the USA following a week or two later. The rest of the world will be a few weeks again after that but totally worth the wait. I am sure you will be stoked on the hard work we’ve put into these bikes.

The 2008 Sect Limited Edition bike will also be shipping soon after the Endeavor’s to most countries. Track yourself a Sect Limited Edition down as they are VERY limited with only 75 produced for the entire planet.



Thanks to Steve from our UK distributor, Shindig Distro for the awesome teaser pics.

Transformer Lever… out now.


The Transformer Lever is out in most countries right now & from the reports we have been getting so far everyone loves them. Some who were shocked at the price of them have now turned around & seen the advantage that they offer to the discerning rider.



Full CNC machined quality throughout, smooth lines, half the weight of any other BMX lever on the market & no adjusting barrel to bend or break when using a straight cable. Our levers will work best with a Dragonfly dual cable system when using a gyro & you use the supplied push fit adaptor. But they also will work with Odyssey & SST normal gyro cables. Snafu dual cables do not fit well so refrain from using them with our lever.

I hope that you all like our levers as much as the people who are running them so far. Thanks in advance for everyones support for Colony throughout the world.

Shane Badman is the man…

Yep, it’s official. The flatland frame that I released some news about a few weeks ago is Shane Badman’s signature ride. I had wanted to do something with Shane when he told me he hated all the frames out there today & couldn’t get something that was exactly like he wanted. Something that would also stand up to his riding. Enter ‘The Cube’ by Shane Badman & Colony.

Shane & I have known each other for almost as long as I can remember. We were penpals before emails even existed writing actual hand writen letters to each other for years… crazy to think actually. Welcome to the team Shane !!

Shane in Austria last year.

The frame will not be out yet for at least 6-8 months as we need to test it first. But should be worth the wait. Details I can release right now are…

Top Tube : 18.85′
Rear End : 13.0′
HT angle : 74.5
ST angle : 72.0
Top/Down Tube : diameter : 31.8mm
Rear Stays diameter : 19.0mm
Features : Built-in seat clamp, Spanish BB, Internal H/set & we will trial some removable rear brake mounts. The frame will also be full post heat treated as are all our 2008 frames.
Weight : TBA but expect it to be light.

What… a Colony flatland frame?


We have been working together with a prominant Australian flatlander for a while now on our first flatland product. Here are some sneak peaks of the frame which will be out early next year. I just thought I would give you all a little teaser. Also to let your minds wander as to who the Australian flatlander is… Let’s just say all will be revealed in good time.


Yo yo !!

Transformer Lever & how they work.

I’ve had a few questions on how to set up the Transformer levers of late… So I thought I would post this to help answer these questions.

If you run a straight cable then the cable itself just sits into the lever body directly as shown in this pic here. There is no adjusting barrel as such. You adjust your brakes down at the brake. We use no adjusting barrel as these just normally break or strip out anyway.


If you run a gryo then I have designed the lever to work perfectly with a Dragonfly double cable system. You use the supplied push fit barrel as shown in this pic here.


Using these cables the lever works perfectly. At this stage you cannot use an SST or an Odyssey Gryo cable with our lever. The Dragonfly or Snafu cables work much better I feel anyway.


I hope this helps anyone out there with the Transformer Lever. Now I am going to go ride down at the Mellowpark here in Berlin for the Rebeljam. Word.

Pale Blue…

Yo… Here is a sneak pic of the Pale Blue colourway for our 2008 range of parts. Shown is the Official Stem & Sprocket, Transformer Lever & our yet to be named hub set.


The cassette hub uses the Q-Lite internals with our own refinements on the hub shell & axle. While our front hub is a bolt style of our own unique design. It will also come with a 7075T6 alloy axle making it very light.

Both hubs will come with colour coded hardware which makes for a very cool look. The hubs will be available January 2008… while the Stem, Sprocket & Lever will be available in Pale Blue, Pale Red & Pale Purple from September this year.

Keep an eye out here for more info over the coming months…

Hell Stallion?

Liam Fahy-Hampton has been creating quite a buzz for sometime now with his ‘run at me slut’ video section floating around cyber-space. Hell, that’s one of the main catalysts for me to chase him down & offer him a spot on Colony to start with.

When we first talked I wanted to offer Liam something special to be a part of Colony & that was in the form of a possible signature frame. Well here are the very first pics of the ‘Hell Stallion’ pure street frame from the minds of Liam & myself. These were fresh off the welding jig before heading off to be full post heat treated & then painted.

Don’t ask any details on it just yet please as it’s all very much in the early stages… Just know it’s low, light, strong & very street ready. No release date is even close yet (not likely for at least 6 months) but expect to see Liam & Mick Bayzand rolling on these prototypes in the coming weeks.





Oh check out Liam’s video section here… It’s a huge 110meg file so be patient but well worth the wait…

Greetings from Taiwan…


I am in Taiwan right now over seeing the production of our 2008 range of products. The 2008 Endeavor complete bike is being produced today & will ship to some countries next week. So keep an eye out for them in the USA, Australia, the UK & the Netherlands in the next weeks. All other countries will be shipping in a month or so.

Here are a few random pics from my trip so far. One from the plane not long after taking off over Australia & the others are a night time & day time view from my hotel in Taichung here in Taiwan.

Ryan’s Official Forks, Stem & Sprocket…plus more

Ryan’s Official parts line with Colony is available right now or very soon in most countries. You can get the new Official Forks with a limited edition Pale Red top cap. New to the line is the Official Stem in Pale Red with more colours to come later in the year. The Official sprocket in 25T in Pale Red is also back in stock again. The highly anticipated Transformer Lever is also available in most countries now or very soon. Check the products section for full info now. Maybe with these on your bike you can ride like Ryan? Or maybe at least you will be seen as supporting Australian BMX at it’s finest while having some of the most modern light weight products on your bike.

Oneway Pegs… what makes them so special?

This is one question I get asked all the time. Well, I thought I would explain to you all what makes them so unique & another world first for Colony.

Their main feature is the offset internal machining. The name ‘Oneway’ came from the fact that the bottom section is thicker where you grind, while the top section is thinner where you don’t grind. Meaning you can only use them oneway. See the drawing here for what I mean.


They are machined from heat treated 7075T6 alloy which actually grinds faster on coping & rails than crmo. It is also amazingly light & so much more affordable than titanium. Of course these pegs are more suited to park & light street use. These are for the weight conscious riders out there. Many top name riders are using these pegs right now but I wont drop names here.

Our pegs are available in 10mm or 14mm. The 14mm versions come with or without built-in chain tensioners in right or left hand versions. Sold separately & come with a handy bag that is great for an ipod or digital camera carry case.

New Colony frames coming…4.0lbs & 4.5lbs ??

Bloody oath we got some new, very special frames coming for 2008.

All our frames for 2008 feature Full Post Heat Treatment giving them an amazing strength to weight ratio. Basically, our frames are Heat Treated after welding & this creates the incredible strength that they possess.

First, we have the Dave Freimuth signature frame called the MVP. It comes in either 20.25 or 20.75 top tube lengths & weighs in at a mere 4.5lbs (2,050grams). Dave’s tech machine will hold up to anything you can throw at it whether you run front brakes or not.

Dave’s MVP frame in the limited edition Metallic Purple colourway.

Nick Richardson’s signature frame, called the Bloody Oath, is our lightest frame at 4.0lbs (1,850grams) This will be one of the worlds lightest frames designed with Nick’s ever so popular style in mind. It will come in 21 or 21.25 top tube sizes.

The Bloody Oath frame to go along with Nick’s massive Bloody Oath bars.

All of our the frames feature our Colonized CrMo tubing & our own design built-in seat clamp saving you weight & making for a very clean look. Check back soon for more info & more detailed photos.

The 2008 range of frames will be available around the world in September. Look out for the first limited edition colour of Metallic Purple.

Ryan Guettler’s Official Signature Stem

Ryan’s signature stem, the Official Stem, will also be shipping worldwide with the Transformer Lever. We have worked very tightly with Ryan on this one & its something we are very proud of for sure.

It’s machined from 7057T6 alloy as opposed to most stems which are 6061T6 alloy. Our stem can then be machined out much more than normal making it very light weight. It weighs in at 250 grams or 8.03 oz. It is also very strong as 7075T6 is much stronger & more durable. It features a removable gyro plate as well.

You can have Ryan’s stem on your bike in Pale Red any day soon or in Black, Pale Blue from September. We will also have limited edition colours like Dark Purple & Pale Green.

Yo yo !!



Transformer Lever shipping now…

Yes, finally the Transformer Lever is shipping to all of our distributors right now. Soon it will be available worldwide.

The Transformer Lever is one of our star products & will surely change the way levers are looked at from now onwards. They are a full precesion CNC machined lever from 6061T6 alloy. This eleminates the annoying ‘lever wobble’ all levers have had in the past. They are also incredibly light at 60 grams or 2.11 oz. This is half the weight of any other BMX lever on the market. They feature no threaded barrel adjuster to strip out or bend as your cable fits straight into the body. They will also come with an adaptor piece to suit the twin cable systems out there as well. Also supplied will be spare bushings.

Shipping now are right hand versions in Black only with left hand also available in September as well as a right hand Trigger version. There will also be colours available with Pale Red, Pale Blue & limited edition colours such as Dark Purple & Pale Green.

We hope that you like our lever as we have worked hard on it for over 18 months now.

We test our products…

At Colony we test our products in more ways than one well before you put them on your bike. Take our Official & MVP forks for instance. Both of these forks offer a Full Lifetime Warranty & we can do this because we have total confidence in our forks.

Not only do the team test them riding we also test our forks in the factory. The machine showed here has a 170 kg weight pressed down on the forks over 100,000 times to test their strength. They pass this test with full straight A’s.

You can rest assured when you run a Colony fork you are getting some of the lightest & strongest forks on the market.
