We have got behind the Base Jam happening this weekend so hit it up if you are in the area.
Mike Brennan loves a good bleached tee so he was good enough to shoot us over a quick how-to on how he does his t-shirts…
First get a good dark colored Colony shirt. Then some bleach in an empty water or soda bottle and a nail.
First remove the cap from the bottle and tap the nail threw the center. Making a hole.
Next fill the bottle 2/3 of the way up with hot water.
Fill the rest of the bottle with bleach
Now lay your shirt out and spray on any way you want. The longer you leave it the more the color will change.
Flip the shirt over and do the other side.
Make sure to do it somewhere safe that the bleach won’t affect.
Then rinse the shirt out. Done.
We have just received a fresh new shipment in the USA with a few new items such as our Free Coaster Wheels & Free Coaster Hubs in the very popular Rainbow colour way. The wheels are laced to our Contour Rim in Black with either the Rainbow or a Black hub. Both wheels & hubs area available in RHD or LHD.
The first drop of Prody Frames for the planet, have also arrived in the USA & we couldn’t be more stoked. The platform is back !!
Expect to see these wheels, hubs & frames available at USA based retailers in the next week or so. So hit them up soon.
Other countries such as Australia, the UK, Canada, Brazil, China & Russia will receive theirs in the weeks ahead.
Yo yo !!

We are getting behind the annual Mauls Brawl jam which is happening this weekend. If you are on the East Coast hit it up.
For as many years as I can remember now, we have been supporting the Core Series & this year we are getting behind it even more. This first one kicks off 2014 with a bang this saturday in Morayfield. Always a great turn out & good vibe at these, so make sure you get yourself along to it. Check out the flyer below for more details & their website here now.

On the 12th of April, there will be the annual BMX comp at the park in Springfield, QLD held by the Goodna Youth Service. As always, we’re supporting the event & should be a good day. Head on over for a chance to win a bunch of prizes. Check the flyer below for full details.

Earlier in the week we were looking into parks to ride in the San Diego area and this park popped up via Google which caught our eye. It happened to be a bike only night that night so we hit it up and there was only 2 other people there. The Esondido park was super fun and no doubt we will be heading back many more times. Here are a few quick shots from the session.
We hooked up with some of the crew from TCU and filmed this Instagram Slam at LAX plaza, the place was slippery but fun none the less.
So despite the weather being beyond average for the last week and a bit, I actually took myself out about two weeks ago riding Civic skate park where I landed with my guts on the end of the bars at the bottom of the ramp it actually scared me for that split second, but the old bar ends saved me from in-palling myself. Seriously kid, run bar ends that shit serious!
Also Last weekend me and my housemate went up to Cairns for 4 days, such an amazing spot up there, didn’t get to ride as I was injured but still so much to see and do up there off the bike. That Place is like Jurassic Park, the rainforest up there is amazing!
Also just a reminder about ACT jam on Anzac Day weekend! Everyone should bring a crew and hang out, it’s gunna be a loose weekend.
Last week we filmed this plaza video with Zach from Vital. The session was a good time and the plaza was a treat. That last clip from Justin is ridiculous!
Colony at Rancho La Cienega Plaza – More BMX Videos
Large flair tuck from Alex which you can see in print via the latest 2020 mag. The Wasp hubs have been real popular so if you want more info on them hit here.
Due to the cold weather on the East Coast of the USA Mike has been keeping busy riding some makeshift rails and ledges.
Thanks to Scott McMenamin for filming this for us.
