Zac Miner update

Hey guys just a quick update… This last month has been that good, with everyone just having a couple of weeks off on holidays it has been perfect. Between getting outta Canberra and heading down the coast to this amazing spot we always end hitting up, snorkelling, camping etc. I’ve been busy with a backyard project, I’m so fortunate to have amazing house mates and the result will be having my own 4 foot ghetto bowl with wall rides and all sorts of stuff. I’m about half way there, so stay tuned for some photos. Anyways until then I’ll be busy building. Talk to ya’s soon…

Jourdan Barba HayzinAZ trip

A couple weeks back Jourdan went on a trip for TCU and he shot through an update about it. There is a real nice photo gallery from the trip that Wes McGrath shot you can check out right here.

“The trip was fun we stayed at a friend Robbie’s house for 5 days rode a couple schools and spots, skateparks at night and we filmed a Instagram slam video that was fun to do with the whole crew… Dan Norvell,Jackson Ratima, Raul Ruiz, Glen Girboven, Nate and Wes! We rode and saw a lot of famous Phoenix spots, rode LA for a couple days after Arizona and went to the OSS store opening which was a good time! Over all it was a good trip and the video should be dropping soon for everyone to check out!”




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.

Brandon shot through an update with a lofty table photo. Follow him on Instagram (@brandonvandulken) as he is always posting up some epic photos of landscapes in Canada.

“I Took advantage of the few nice days left with a little weekend trip down to Portland to ride some amazing spots. Good people, good vibes. Really looking forward to Texas Toast! Mad hype.”


Day in the life with Alex & Ryan

I think this video really shows what these two are really like, they don’t take things too seriously and have a lot of fun doing so. Have a watch and enjoy your weekend.

Welcome to the team – Mike Brennan

We are stoked to announce that one of New Jersey’s finest, Mike Brennan is now riding for Colony. I’ve known Mike for a little while now and everytime we would talk I could tell more and more that he was on the same page as us and things just fell into place from there. Next minute we are sending some product and the rest is history. I look forward to hanging out with Mike some more and collecting footage for future Colony projects because we all know he goes hard! – Cooper.

A few months back Cooper had told me that Mike had expressed interest and good words about what we have going on at Colony. I was stoked to hear this for sure. It wasn’t until a few months later that we had the chance to meet up at Interbike and right away from that first meeting, I knew this was going to happen. Mike is a down to earth guy with the right out look on BMX and life in general. I am stoked to have him a part of the family and I look forward to the years ahead. – Clint Millar.



Marnold update

Marnold shot over an update of what’s happening for him right now…

“Sup everyone, not much happening down my way, I pulled 2 muscles in my back last Monday so I’m out of action on the bike for a while which sucks a lot but I gotta rest up to get better, so in the mean time I’ve just been hanging around working on my car and chilling out, recently brought a tattoo gun which is probably not the best idea I’ve had but who cares, gotta have fun some way or another!!”


Zac Miner update

Zac shot through an update from down in Canberra…

Hey y’all.. So not much has been happening at my end, the weather in Canberra has only just kinda come good. With all the shit weather we’ve had before spring we made the most of the climate and went up to the snow for two days for a friends birthday. Couldn’t wipe the smile off my face up an down the slops all day, ate shit a heap of times but had ball. I’ve been rolling around a little at some of the local little parks near my house, but I get my license back in two weeks so i’ll be definitely doing some trips once I get it back, not sure where but yet? Other then that I’ve just been Laying low passing the time.


Type 2 Detectives / Colony tee shirts out now

To celebrate the up coming release of some very special Colony / Type 2 Detectives complete bikes are some limited edition tee shirts. You can order your tees now on their site by clicking here now. Get to it though, as stocks are limited.

The Endeavour complete bikes will be out just before Xmas this year. All colour co-ordinated to match the special 1965 VW Type 3 Squareback Panel Van we built with the guys at Type 2 Detectives.


Yo yo !!

Marnold out in it.

With Troy Charlesworth in Melbourne, Marnold came out to film a few clips with him for the 2020 dvd. We came up on this spot which was such an amazing rail setup, for anyone that searches schools you would most likely come across dream rails at the end of school buildings with no run up, well on this occasion we just got lucky.



Only Bobbie…

Bobbie is probably the only person that could make this colourway work…




Marnold update

I met up with Marnold yesterday afternoon (as you would know if you are following Colony on Insta) at a local spot we’ve been building at over the past year or so and grabbed a few photos while we were at it. Spring is here so the goodtimes are rolling.




Guettler has been busy…

Ryan Guettler shot through an update on what he has been up too of late…

I’ve been very busy the last 2 months and have a huge month ahead of me. Over August I’ve done the Vans HB bowl comp, Colony Woodward week, Mongoose Woodward east comp and now just finished the Vans ECSC comp. I’ve been progressing and getting better results as the events have been going on. The Mongoose comp was really cool & we got good results in dirt with our team ending up getting 2nd place.

Then this past weekend I went to Norfolk VB to compete in the Vans ECSC comp and came home with 3rd place. Really happy how the comp went and against that field of riders I can’t complain.
Now I have a week off so I’ll be working on new tricks and filming a lot for upcoming videos. Then of to Mexico City for a big comp Sept 6th.



Yo yo !!

Brandon Van Dulken checks in

It seems Brandon has really got the travel bug as all this year he has been trekking all over the country and world. Here is the latest on his most recent trip.

“Hope all is well guys, I just got back from an awesome little roady in the states for a bmx/skate festival. Back home now and all healed up, time to clock some clips! Real psyched on what’s going on right now.”

Thanks so much to Shawn Duffied for the photo. Do yourself a favour and follow both Brandon (@brandonvandulken) and Shawn on Instagram.
