Transformer Lever product highlight

We were first to take the humble brake lever as we all know them to new heights when we introduced precision CNC machined quality with our Transformer Levers. We were also the first to introduce the lack of a need for the useless barrel adjuster.

Our levers are half the weight of any other lever on the market today. Sure, they are more expensive but like anything these days, you get what you pay for.

Expect to see other levers on the market soon that are inspired by our pioneering work. Always insist on the original though… the Colony Transformer Lever, available in normal & Trigger versions in a variety of colours.

Fantastic Plastic Pedals

We have been working on these for a while now & I thought it was time to release some teaser details to everyone out there. 

Our ‘Fantastic Plastic’ pedals will feature a very light weight & inexpensive design. They will also feature 8 steel fully replaceable pins per pedal. You can choose to run these steel pins or not. Totally up to you.

The computer images shown don’t show the logo or unique grip pattern that will be all over them. They will be available in a wide variety of colours.

More details will be released soon including pics of the first samples.

Expect these to be available August this year.

Alex Hiam update

Alex Hiam our 12 year old prodigy from Brisbane, Australia has been killing it of late as always. Here is a cool picture that Angela Dobbie (thanks Ang) took of Alex doing a no hand 180 over the spine at Kuraby in Brisbane’s southside on the weekend.   

Alex has been getting strong support from Crossley Cycles in Manly, Brisbane now for a few years & we have been supporting them by flowing them all the Colony parts Alex can handle. Namely, a very special custom Bloody Oath frame with a 19.8″ top tube & 13.5″ rear end. This will be available as a ‘kids size’ frame after July this year.

Ryan visits Woodward East

Ryan sent me some cool pics from a recent trip he did to Woodward East. It was his second ever time to see snow which sounds like it was a bunch of fun. 

In Ryan’s words… To my pleasant surprise it was snowing most the time we were there, which made it the 2nd time ive seen snow so I was happy but freezing. To see Jamie Bestwick and Chad Kagy ride their home ramp is soooo freakin crazy. I see them at comps but this was different, they’re too good. They made me leaving wanting to ride ramps so much higher. Most mornings we would wake up in Buds Barn and start the day off trying to get warm with some basket ball (so fun). Then just ride all day as there’s not to much to do at camp when its snowing but ride ALOT.

Haimona repping as always

Haimona Ngata, our man in Auckland, New Zealand is shown below repping Colony as always. Ho, as we all know him, is a living legend in the NZ riding scene, whether he likes it or not.

I remember the first time I ever met him was in Brisbane in 1999. He was there with a good selection of my favourite New Zealand riders for the Planet X Gaymes. I remember him & Shoe-G from Japan getting on top of the wall ride on the street course after the finals swinging their male apendages around. I also kinda recall drinking a bottle of Black Sambucca on my back porch while talking about mowing the lawn in my Hoffman Boks shoes, haha. Priceless. Ho rules.

20Twenty Store

There is a cool BMX store called 20Twenty located in Aberdeen, Scotland ran by a rider by the name of Mike Ellington. Mike carries an extensive range of Colony products & we appreciate his support. Mike also hooks up local rider Lewis Watson with Colony with the help of Shindig Distributions.

I visited the store back in 2004 & Mike let myself & James Hitchcox stay at his place for the night. If you’re ever in the area drop in and say G’Day (or what ever they say up there? Maybe I should’ve asked Scottish John for what they say up there?)

An upcoming advert in DIG Mag for Mikes store.

James Steele & winter in Canada

James Steele, our flow team rider from Canada, sent me an email recently about what he has been up to of late dealing with the Canadian winter. Read on…  

I’ve just been working and riding as much as I can. The weather here is pretty bad right now. We’ve got about 2 and a half feet of snow on the ground right now and it’s not looking like it’s going anywhere fast.

So I’ve been riding the few indoor parks that we’ve got around here, which has been OK. Not the most fun thing to do that’s for sure. Can’t wait for some nice weather. I did get a photo shot that is OK. It’s indoors so its nothing I’m too stoked on, either way I’ll send it along with this email.

Other then that, not to much new happening over here. I just got some flights booked up for May. I’m gonna be going to Vancouver for a month and a bit to chill and ride. So I’ve got something to look forward too! – James.
