We started helping out Troy with some Colony parts a couple years ago through Backbone BMX in Canberra, Australia. Covid lockdown restrictions held up the progress of his video but Troy was out stacking clips whenever he could and came out the other side with a great video.
Filmed by Oliver Featherstone, Oliver Irvine and Zac Miner.
Cut by Troy Harradine.
Today we’ve got a new video from Paddy Gross! We’ll let Paddy give you the scoop…
The Idea was to come up with as many of my own tailwhip combos in the last 3 months without trying to copy anyone else’s. This has all been self filmed and some of the combos took me months to complete.
My inspiration comes from legendary BMX legends such as Dave Freimuth, Dave Osato, Clint Millar, Tobias Wicke, Nick Harkins, Tom Haugen, Jason Enns, Axel Reichertz, Dave Mirra to only name a few and I took individual tricks from either and put them together. Freestyle!
Thank you for watching and supporting the little leftover of the frontbrake BMX world. Thanks my dear Colony BMX family for having me and all the incredible support! I appreciate you all….Paddy
We’ve been helping out Sam Grace with some Colony product through Rye Bike Shop for a while now. Sam has been killing it on the regular so we want to welcome him to the family. Be on the lookout for a welcome video in the coming months.
Ricky Catanzariti has been dealing with some injuries the past couple of years but in between them all he still managed to bang out some super creative riding and package them all up into this awesome piece that he cut up himself.
The Colony Swarm Freecoaster Hub is our newest FC hub utilising the ground breaking planetary coaster internals from the guys at Freenight. It has the weight of a cassette, very minimal slack with an almost instant engagement when pedalling forwards. Yet you have all the good properties of a FC hub when rolling backwards with no engagement or the need to back pedal.
We’ve also created a very detailed video showing the inner workings of the hub…
2021 was another crazy year, starting off with some fun trips before parts of Australia were locked down yet again which really restricted us getting together as much as we would have liked.
We made it work as best as we could and still got some great footage from the crew. Let’s hope we can get on the road more this coming year.
We hope everyone has a great new year, thanks for the support as always.

Given how hard it has been to meet up and film these days (Covid border restrictions) Jayden had an idea to self film this full video. He spent the last couple months setting a tripod and seeing what he could get, then finished it off by editing it himself as well.
Clint Millar is a master of the toothpick stall so who better to give you the run down on how to do them. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the YT comments and we’ll do our best to help you out.
Who better than Chris James to teach you how to air a quarter? Chris starts you off with a small quarter and works his way up to the larger ramps.
If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments and we’ll do our best to help.
Kio, Simon and Clint all have great footage in this new Flatland full length video from Stewart Munro. You can peep the trailer below and buy the full video here.
