Pretty sure Tom pulled this off camera and we thought we were going to cop the deadly camera curse but it actually didn’t take that long to get. Some local guy just chillin’ in his car was so hyped on it, as if he’d never seen anyone coast on the front wheel before. I guess that would be pretty amazing to an outsider.

Shane always seems to be up to something cool…
“Busy past few months for sure. Since coming back from my trip to Europe I hit up the final stop of the DownUnderGround Flatland series in Australia in Melbourne and was stoked to take the win!
A good mate of mine from Hungary, Andras Pentek also came for a month to travel, ride and shoot some photos and video for some magazine and web projects that he’s got going on back in Europe. We started in Perth, then Adelaide, then onto Melbourne and a roadtrip through Tasmania. Good times.
While in Tassie, I also did some demos for one of their biggest country festivals, the Derby River Derby which was a lot of fun.
A couple of weeks back, I got an invite to do a flatland show at a professional photographic studio in Melbourne as they were doing a product launch and needed an action subject to test the equipment to an audience of pro photographers. Good times and thanks to Chris Polack for that one.
Gonna be on the road for 16 days over Christmas and New Years across Victoria and South Australia so will keep you guys updated!
And don’t forget to follow me on instagram @shanebadman. I’ve also been updating my site a lot with what I’ve been up to with a heap more detail as well”

“The trip was fun we stayed at a friend Robbie’s house for 5 days rode a couple schools and spots, skateparks at night and we filmed a Instagram slam video that was fun to do with the whole crew… Dan Norvell,Jackson Ratima, Raul Ruiz, Glen Girboven, Nate and Wes! We rode and saw a lot of famous Phoenix spots, rode LA for a couple days after Arizona and went to the OSS store opening which was a good time! Over all it was a good trip and the video should be dropping soon for everyone to check out!”

We’ve been sitting on this video for a little while now and I am stoked to finally have it out. Brandon really went hard when he visited Australia for a month which is where a good chunk of these clips came from. Dude hits anything that is put in front of him. Thanks to Shawn Duffield for the Canada footage. This video and 17 others just like it are available on our free dvd that is available through all Colony stockists worldwide.

As we posted the other day, Ricky is getting some flow from us for killing it on a bike over in Adelaide. Then the next day he drops a random web video he filmed over the past month or so, killing it.

Our Australian warehouse manager, Glen McLaughlin, recently took a week off & decided to road trip solo up to Cairns & back. He filmed a bunch of stuff along the way in the chilled fashion of Glen. The cool thing is this was all self filmed, he did some tech tricks to get those panning shots with no one moving the camera. A mixture of Canon 7D & iPhone footage, it turned out a treat showing the relaxed week he had away.
Just goes to show everyone that works at Colony rides & has done so for more than 20 years. Now, it must be Keith Treanor’s turn to do a video hey?
Yo yo !!

We’ve got all the parts goodness packed into one catalogue right here! Everything from Colony in the range that is available right now across the world. We’ve also included some solid riding images from the team so make sure you hit the flipbook below for a good read.
A while ago Matt from Little Black Bike was telling me about this new kid down in Adelaide who was showing some good promise of being a possible rider for us here at Colony. We started to flow Ricky Catanzariti some product through the shop & now he has progressed into an official flow team member. We are stoked to have him on board & the fact Little Black Bike are down with him speaks words for us. Look out for more from Ricky in the new year, the kid is going to make some noise. We are stoked to have him in the family.

I can’t wait for Chris Courtenay‘s next web video to drop in a couple weeks (which is also in our free dvd). This invert is a good example of what to expect from it.

Alex Hiam has been graced with own signature frame from the young age of 13 years old, the Sweet Tooth. Earlier this year we gave him his second signature part in the shape of his own seat / post combo. It’s made exactly how Alex wanted it, light, grippy with a mid shape & feel. Available now worldwide at all good BMX outlets. Click here now to read more about his seat / post combo.

If you hadn’t already realised how unique Bobbie is then this image should take care of that! Also now seems like a good time to have another watch of his recent video.
