Officially a sought after stem…

It’s official… Ryan’s Official Stem is one of our most sought after products. It is also one of our products that many PRO’s out there choose to run on their bikes even if it conflicts with their sponsors products.

Must be a reason for that? Maybe it’s the fact it’s one of the lightest stems out there? Maybe because it’s simple & not over engineered? Maybe because it looks so freaking good?

Who knows? All we know is that they are once shipping again as you read this. For those who have been waiting, the wait is almost over. The Official Stem will soon be available in plentiful supply once again…for a few weeks that is until they’re all gone again. So get in quick !!

Introducing…MY NEW DAUGHTER!

harmony-and-daddy.jpgharmony-brooke.jpg

Ahaha, yep, you read correct! on tha morning of the 29th of december 07, my brand spanky new daughter Harmony Brooke Wilson-Ngata entered the world! Props to my Lady Amanda for being in labour 3 days with tha lil Bum Nugget! Its kinda crazy being a dad, but all good though, my schedule hasn’t changed at all, still ride as much as I usually do and everything else, just in the evenings there’s a lil person lying on my chest watching Animal Planet with me! Ha, maybe a Colony pit bike in the future!!? nah, maybe a micro-mini first for that first straight at the track! here’s a pic of me n her on her first day home, and her first mugshot pic! ahaha…what a baby!

Introducing Alex Hiam…

I would like to introduce you all to a very cool, young, up & coming rider from Brisbane, Australia, who is quickly making a name for himself out here. He has his head switched on much more than the average 12 year old out there & can do more stuff than guys twice or even 3 times his age. The kid has skills.

A bike shop out here called Crossley Cycles have been hooking him up for a while now & I wanted to help them as well by getting Alex a bunch of Colony stuff to ride. We also made him a very special custom Bloody Oath frame with a 19.8″ top tube with a 13.5″ rear end. We will also offer this special kids size frame for 2009. Available August 2008.

Alex will also be at the BMX Games later this month when he travels down with Peta Shepherd (thanks for the photos by the way).

Read below for a little insight into what makes Alex tick…

How long you been riding for? 2 years now.

What got you into riding? Dave Mirra on PS2, good times!

Who do you ride with on a regular basis? Cool people like Chris Courtaney, Peta, Micky, Ange, Ben Watson, Matt Domagon.

Do you have any riders that you look up to? I look up to basically the whole Colony team, they’re mad. Dave Mirra, Dennis Enarson & Chris Danger.

Any thanks? I woulde like to thank Crossley Cycles as they have helped me so much, Colony BMX as they have also helped me so much and all my kick ass friends!!!!! Oh, and my mum!

BMX Games 2008 in Sydney, Australia.

Colony are proud to sponsor the BMX Games in Sydney later this month, with the Colony BMX Mini Ramp Battle taking place on the 26th January.

You can expect almost the entire Colony team to be in attendance including but not limited to these names… Ryan Guettler, Nick Richardson, Pete Radivo, Kenny Raggett, Tim Wood, Mick Bayzand, Toby Matthews, Shane Badman, Simon O’Brien as well as myself. Should be a good time with almost every BMXer in Australia in town to either ride or hang out.

Check out the BMX Games site here for full info.

Yo yo !!

Welcome to the team… Simon O’Brien !!

Yes, Simon has joined the team !! We here at Colony are very excited to see Simon join Shane in our very exclusive flatland team. Welcome to the team Simon !!

Our flatland program is starting to take shape exactly how I wanted it. Both Simon O’Brien & Shane Badman will have a huge input into what our products look like & the specs they have. Expect to see Shane’s, The Cube frame, that you already know about & some bars from Simon. Also from Colony a sprocket, freecoaster hub, some 2 piece cranks, pegs, stem & Pivotal seat & seat post combo. All these will be available around July/August this year depending where you live in the planet.

Shane Badman update…

Here is an update that Shane sent me & what he has been up too…

What’s up guys? I have just got back from spending the past 9 days in Sweden for Christmas and New Years. I went over there with my girlfriend to spend it with her family and see how the Swedes do things.

Christmas is totally different. They celebrate on Christmas eve with all the presents handed out. It’s a big event with a huge Christmas dinner prepared and all the family invited.

New Years was huge. We spent it in a small city called Lund in the south of Sweden, not far from Copenhagen in Denmark. At midnight we climbed to the top of this massive hill with a 360degree view of all the fireworks. It was unreal seeing fireworks in every direction as far as you could see.

Sweden is an amazing country with a very high quality of life, consistent in all the Scandinavian countries. Sweden is ranked in the top 5 countries to live in the World (with Australia being number 3!). Nearly everyone speaks fluent English and getting around the country is easy.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see any riders while I was out there. Being the middle of winter didn’t help and with temperatures being around 0 with the coldest about -4 (when I got the riding photos done!) and it made riding pretty difficult. After a while it gets to a point where you lose feeling in your feet and hands and it’s nearly impossible to ride.

Hope everyone had an awesome New Years and see you all at the BMX Games in Sydney January 26-28th.

For those that haven’t seen it yet…

It’s a little old now but can still hold it’s own today… Liam Fahy-Hampton’s ill fated Run At Me Slut video section… check it here. It’s a huge 110meg file though so be patient while downloading.

This is the video section that earned Liam a spot on the Colony team & got him his own signature frame & forks (yes, forks now too) which will be called the Hell Stallion. Not due out till August this year but will be worth the wait. More info in the coming months.

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.

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.
