We’ve graced Brandon Van Dulken from Canada with his first signature product – the Roaster Bars. We opened our own exclusive new multi butted tubing mould to create a new tubing with an extra thick area around the cross bar bend to gove maximum strength is this area. We also raised the cross bar itself a little higher to give more strength as well. Full post heated CrMo construction, these bars wont let you down.
8.75″ high, 29″ wide, 10.5 degrees back sweep & 2.0 degrees up sweep are the specs. Click here for more info & available at dealers all over the planet now, or very soon. Ready to roast anything in sight !!

I hung out with Nathan earlier this week and although it was stupid hot we had a blast and got some photos taken care of. Unfortunately the brand new bike Nathan is riding in these shots was stolen at Interbike but Nathan will be back rolling in no time.
Hey guys, the ‘berras had some cracker days. Been Riding a heap of bigger bowls and stuff, she’s to cold for hittin rails!
Other then that, got a new job roofing, it’s pretty sweet, better then being in a bloody workshop hey! Doesn’t give me a lot of afternoons free to ride which is a downer. But I’m goin to Deni this weekend so I’ll hopefully get a ride in then.
Till next time.. Peace
Tom Stretton sent in a quick update…
Just saying g’day and letting you know what I’ve been up to.
Recently I had been filming a lot to finish my edit off. A few good friends and me dug a really cool quarter out at the spillway which I have wanted to do since last summer which was so fun!
Unfortunately, I came off hard on that quarter and fractured my fibula down near my ankle. Nothing too serious and I should be back in about six weeks just in time for some summer fun!
Good news is my edit is all finished filming for. Missed out on two clips I really wanted because I got hurt but I’m still happy with the stuff we have. Look out for that coming real soon.
Huge thanks to Cooper for filming and of course the man Millsy for basically everything ever. Can’t wait for some epic times with the guys through summer.
Peace! – Tom.
Yo yo !!
Hey guys – it’s been a long, cold winter down in the south in country Victoria where I’m living at the moment. Still been pushing on though and had got the chance to do some demos at Federation Square in Melbourne in July, then in August went on a 3 week road trip up the east coast with my good mate from Hungary, Andras Pentek, to Brisbane where I was stoked to catch up with the Boss, Clint Millar and get out for some flatland sessions! From Brisbane, I then drove straight to Adelaide for a few days, then back to country Victoria. Good times on the bike and the road.
Stoked that summer is on it’s way. Will be heading to Japan in October for 8 days on a riding trip, then soon as I get back, keep a look out on your TV’s as I’ll be getting busy doing demos at the T20 International Cricket matches in Adelaide and Melbourne. Thanks to Freestyle Now for that hookup, will be good to get Colony and BMX out to the masses.
Keep in touch on Insty @shanebadman Thanks to Greg Barnes and Andras Pentek for the images.
Our 2015 forks, the Guardian & the Dagger, have just landed in the ever popular Rainbow in both the USA & Australia. Get them while they last !! Other countries will see them any week now as well.

Chris has been stacking clips for the past few months for his welcome video and we should be all done in the coming weeks. Chris has pop!
Ricky holds it down for us in Adelaide and always comes through with cool videos. This one is no different with what seems to be an endless list of combo’s. Make sure you check this out.
Dean Anderson has some footage towards the end of this edit of his buddy Adrian Fox riding their local park of Morwell in Victoria.
I didn’t think I would ever be writing this here but Ryan Guettler is no longer riding for Colony as of today.
He has decided to leave the team, to take a job as a brand manager / pro rider at Hyper & Snafu. I know Ryan has wanted a job within the industry for a while now & I personally wish him all the best in this new chapter in his life.
Ryan has been with Colony since our inception in 2005, he was the first rider I chose as a team rider back then. More importantly, I have known & ridden with Ryan since he was just 7 years old. It has been a fun ride the last 24 years & I am sure there will be many more sessions to come. I do thank you Ryan for your efforts with Colony over the years, it is appreciated. Let the good times roll ahead !! I wish you all the best mate – Clint.
Here are some words from Ryan himself…
What ever I write will not show my appreciation and gratefulness I have for Clint Millar and the family I have over at Colony. All the road trips and good times with the team will be my memories for life. Nothing will change our friendship or the the way I think of the guys over at Colony but this next step is a must for me to take. My career is sunsetting and I’ve always wanted to learn the business side of things. I’ve been through all the ups and downs with in BMX over the past 20 years of my career, my knowledge will help Hyper and Snafu. This would not have been an option with out Clint guiding me along the way. He is a best friend and the god of front brakes, I wish Clint nothing but the best. To all the riders at Colony keep it rubber side down and I’ll miss you guys – Ryan.
Yo yo !!
This is soooo good !! Some front brake heat from all the guys in this & especially our own Bobbie Altiser. Loved it guys.
Click here for the video now.
Now go buy some of our Guardian Forks with brake mounts !! We always have & always will, make forks with brake mounts.
Yo yo !!
Brandon Van Dulken has been travelling around Oregon area on a mission to ride some unique parks and enjoy the surroundings that cover that area of the USA…
“Just on the last couple days in oregon/washington. Trip has been amazing and got to ride some spots I’ve always wanted to hit! Stoked on a lot of the footage we managed to capture in the 4 or 5 days too. Life’s basically consisted of driving, camping, riding. So nice seeing something new every day.
Here’s a shot by Shawn Duffield in Vancouver, Washington. This carve was terrifying haha. Got lots more photos so we will definitely shoot them over soon.”
Shuhei Max Azuma has a bike check over on BMX Union which features a bunch of the new product including the 2015 Sweet Tooth. Check it all here.
The 2014 Canadian Concrete in Brookswood, Langley BC recently went down which we supported and looks like it was another great success thanks to KEA. Brandon ended up coming 2nd in the pro purse which his cool to see, it’s even better to see so many young riders getting in the mix. Filmed and edited by Shawn Duffield.
We are stoked to announce Miłosz Siajkowski is now riding for us over in Poland, below you can see his new set-up and be on the look out for some fresh footage soon. Thanks to Ave BMX for helping out.
Polly has a Quickfire interview over on the FP website which you can check out right here.
Full details soon… but here is some eye candy for now…
