merryxmas.jpg

I would like to wish everyone out there a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Everyone here at Colony would like to thank all our team riders, distributors, bike shops around the world, our agent in Taiwan, magazines & websites that have given us coverage & lastly but certainly not least, any rider that has supported Colony in one form or another. Be it by buying some of our products or just checking out what we have to offer. Without all your support Colony would not be what it is today. Thank you.

Another new ride…

Well, since it seems to be the week of making up new bikes, here is another very new set up… courtesy of Cooper Brownlee & Scott Greentree of Focalpoint Check over on the Focalpoint site for a better quality image of my new bike.

Something very different for me that’s for certain… perhaps even some kind of mid-life crisis? Either way… it’s going to be a challenge that I welcome.

Peta & her new colour bike (for this week)

I saw Peta the other day down at Crosser’s & she had her bike in the new colour for that week (she paints her bike every few weeks !!) I hooked her up a few new parts like our Mid Pivotal Seat & Official Sprocket as well as some Unlucky13 Tall bars. Peta is a light weight freak so you know it’s a light bike… that’s how we roll at Colony.

New Colony advert…

Here is the new advert featuring Ryan Guettler & his line of signature products as well as our ground breaking Oneway Pegs.

Ryan’s Unlucky13 Bars, Official Forks, Sprocket & Stem are available worldwide right now. The stem has even been popping up on a few pro’s bike checks of late too, proving it is one of the most sought after stems on the market today.

This advert will feature in Ride BMX USA, 2020 BMX as well as Focalpoint BMX magazines.

colonyguettleradvert.jpg

Our Oneway pegs feature a unique internal design which makes them very light. They are basically thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on top where you don’t. See the pic below for what I mean. Simple. Another Colony original design.

Richo loving the states.

Richo just sent me a quick email to say that he is having a blast hanging at Ryan’s place in Greenville & has extended his trip now another few weeks. So we wont be seeing Nick at Beenleigh anytime soon just yet.

Richo also sent me a pic of himself getting tattooed… pretty crazy sleeve work.

Epic BMX

Long time Colony supporter, Epic BMX, held ‘A Month In The Life Of’ DVD premiere on December 1st. They also had a jam with cool little comps like a bunny hop comp & a game of foot down.

Check out their site for a little news report on the day at www.epicbmx.com

Many thanks go out to Epic BMX & Tip Plus for organising such a cool day.

Weekend in Tasmania

I just spent the weekend in Tasmania chilling with family without my bike. For those that don’t know where Tasmania is check a map of Australia & see that little Island at the bottom? Well, that’s Tassie as us Aussies affectionately know it as.

It was great to relax without my bike for once & just do the tourist things that ‘normal’ people do. I checked out a few cool spots like Brady’s Lookout where we saw an Echidna going about his daily routine. Pretty cool to see. While driving back from there I saw this cool little park in a small town called, Beaconsfield.

I also checked out Tassie’s only BMX shop in Launceston called, Highroller BMX. It’s ran by a local rider named Brad & was really cool to see. If your ever there you HAVE to drop in & buy something or die. haha.

All in all it was a nice relaxed weekend & now I head home to turn around & go to Taiwan tomorrow… my travel never ends it seems !!

Frames will now be delayed now until March 2008.

We have had some very stressfull days here working on a problem that has hit us this week.

I am very sad to report that we encountered a problem with our 2008 frames recently shipped worldwide. There has been a manufacturing fault discovered in that the BB shells are ovalised on all Bloody Oath, MVP & Sect frames for 2008. This in turn would make the BB bearings sieze up & not turn freely. This does NOT affect any 2007 model Sect frames out there.

As these frames were not up to our strict quality standards, I made the decision to have them re-called before they hit the markets around the world. I don’t want Colony products out there unless they are absolutely 100% perfect.

This problem does not affect the 2008 Sect Limited Edition complete bike I am happy to report.

I am sorry for the delay this will cause but in March it will be worth the wait. We are having them all made again & making sure this rare problem never occurs again.

I thank everyone out there who has supported Colony from day one. We here at Colony always strive to offer you the best possible products & we will continue to do so.

Vans / Colony collaboration Whip 2 shoe in the works…

vans.jpg

The last few days I have been hanging out with Jerry Badders the BMX team manager for Vans. Today he showed me around the Vans offices in California & I gotta say it’s a pretty cool set up. It’s a huge place with so much cool stuff to check out. They even have a nice mini ramp set-up as well. Definately BMX friendly too. I also got to check out Guettler’s new Whip 2 shoe in the flesh & it looks pretty damn cool to say the least.

We have been working with Vans now for a few months on a collaboration Whip 2 shoe with Colony & Vans. Expect to see it available Spring 2009 which means available January 2009. So yeah you will have to wait a while but it will be worth the wait.

I will post more info here once it becomes available.

A little late… but better than never.

Last week we visted the Orchid / Littledevil offices in Philly. Liam & Nick wanted to go ‘shopping’ & get some new clothes & shoes. So we all tagged along & checked out the place. We got to see the infamous bowl & yes it looks just as good as you can imagine. Pitty we didn’t have time to ride it at all but was a good tease for sure.

It was cool to see a copy of Focalpoint in the front office on the coffee table. Focalpoint rules & good to see it on the other side of the planet.

Custom 2008 Endeavor completes

Strictly BMX have done a cool thing with some of their 2008 Endeavor complete bikes & swapped the forks & bars from each colourway to make some cool customs. Check their website for full details… they also have some Sect frame custom builds available as well.

Product highlight – Oneway Pegs.

Our Oneway Pegs are growing in popularity the world over & for few good reasons…

1. They are light weight due to their special design & construction. So much so, that some companies feel the need to ‘copy’ our special internal offset design with them being thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on the top where you don’t grind. See the diagram for details.

colonyonewaypeg1.jpg

2. They come with the optional built-in chain tensioner that is also removable. Giving you complete freedom on how you run your pegs. See picture below.

3. They come in a great range of colours.

onewaypegs.jpg

4. They grind just as fast if not faster than traditional crmo or titanium pegs. They also hold up to street use as Liam Fahy-Hampton & Mick Bayzand inform me.

Bruno Faucon & his new ride.

Bruno Faucon from France sent me a pic of his new ride. His nice new 2008 Bloody Oath Frame with Full Post Heat Treatment technology in 21 inch with Bloody Oath bars, MVP Forks with Official Stem & Sprocket. Looks like a pretty sweet ride to me… I am sure Bruno will be killing it as always on his new beast.

For all your Colony needs in France contact Unleaded BMX they will sort you with the best Colony has to offer at a price you cannot beat in France.

The all day mauler!!!

ahhh, the weekend just gone was the zombie hop comp, triple six gallery show, and wazman’s halloween party. I’m not really one to enter a hop comp, I’m confident enough in my hop to get up or over anything that may be in my way street, so I was down to take it easy and chill and have a laugh n stuff. A quick early morning stop at the bottle shop on route to the jam and the day got off to a good start!

before-after.jpg

 I had my money on Simon Palmer and he ended up winning, check the awesome trophy that redbull got done for the winner!! there was an in and out comp and a big game of footdown, All in all it was an awesome time, with a bunch of out of towners making the trip up. The drinks kept flowing into the afternoon so it was time to put the peddle to the metal and get hammered a bit more! A bit later on was the triple 666 gallery show, aha,  there was a keg of ice cold beer as well as lots of new products from a bunch of companies that 666 do, they just picked up Fremont clothing so it was cool to see all that stuff, and of course, a bunch of buzzy stuff from Colony!! Lester from Quitechoas had a bunch of cool clothing there as well. Big ups to Justin from Redbull, 666 mike, Zombie Mike and Lester for an awesome time!

Whew, still, the drinking kept going and it was time to head shore side to Wazman’s halloween party. Can’t really remember much from the party hay, lots of people laughing and getting RAD on the loose juice! The one pic that I got was this one of the wazman looking bloody scary as shit!! aha, his outfit actually looked normal on him, guess it went pretty well with his Misfit’s Tattoo!

Lastly, was at the beach the other day and there was a family of ducks swimming along the shoreline, ducks at the beach?? whats next!!?? topless girls sunbathing!!?? ahaha, bring on suuummmeerrrrr!!!….

BMX life in Greenville

The BMX lifestyle in Greenville is pretty damn good.

Colin Mackay said it well by saying, ‘Everyday is a Saturday here.’ Which you couldn’t describe it better I think. Every night is a party night since no one has to ‘work’ the next day as such. They party & hang out till late at night, get up late, then go ride all afternoon & into the night then do it all over again. Pretty good way to live I say.

It can also afford you some cool toys & a nice place to live as well. Guettler’s place is amazing to say the least. You couldn’t ask for more I think. Check out Ryan’s house and a few of his toys. Not bad for riding a little kid’s bike.

Halloween in Greenville

Last night we experienced our first Halloween dressing up for the occasion. It was plenty of fun & I can see why it’s a popular thing over here. Check out our costumes… we had 4 hunters, a pimp, an airline pilot, a halloween monster & a true blue aussie. Good times for sure.

Report from Greenville

img_0089a.jpg

We finally made it to Greenville, NC yesterday. We are experiencing pro-town USA first hand & I gotta say it’s lives up to it’s name. We rode Jaycee park yesterday which was awesome to do. I only wish I wasn’t so tired from driving all day so I could’ve had a better ride.

Today we were lucky enough to check out Ryan Nyquist’s The Unit. This place rules, period. So many good lines & such a relaxed session. I was stoked to be there for sure. Liam even learnt flairs on the box jump take off. So good to see.

Tonight as I write this I just lost at poker in Guettler’s personal poker room in his attic. Good times for sure.

Tomorrow hopefully we get to ride Mirra’s warehouse which will be an experience.

Trip update…

A couple days ago we rode the most amazing street any of us have ever experienced. The college in Athens, GA is totally amazing. Words cannot describe it. Liam & Mick totally killed it. Massive icepick grinds, 17 stair round rail psi rides to name a few. Even Richo & myself slid a bunch of rails. I haven’t any pics right now to post but there will be heaps to see in Ride BMX magazine & also in the web videos we will edit up from the trip. Stay tuned.

We were at the Baco Jam yesterday which was awesome to see as well. So much good riding & so much eye candy for all. The halloween party after was totally amazing. We gotta start doing halloween like that back home.

Tonight we start the drive to Greenville, NC & will be riding there for the next 3 days before heading to Woodward East. But not before the real halloween party on Wednesday night. Yeah yeah !!
