Personally, I couldn't care less what parts professional riders run on their bikes, but the riding in this was actually really dope, especially Renald's moves on the rail. The Derek Duster in particular was real cool.
This was a really refreshing edit. Put together by Ryan Humphries featuring his crew, it was completely different to the edits we receive everyday. Filmed, and edited superbly, and a super mellow vibe about it. This is good.
For the first half of this year, Corey Smithies and company have been producing top quality riding. In this edit, Corey has mashed together the best clips. It's really impressive. What the fuck is with Western Australia and producing bullshit good young riders?
If producing one of the DVD sections of the year wasn't enough, T Strett has been hard at work on other projects including this mind blowing web video for Colony. If you haven't seen the Colony DVD yet you're missing out! Pick up a copy from your local bike shop or grab one online here.
A few weeks ago, round 2 of Australia's national flatland series, Down Underground went down at Summer Hill skatepark in Sydney's inner-west, courtesy of Freestyle Now and video-savvy man John Young was there to capture all the action. Part One of this edit is entirely flat, however, part 2 features some sweet little flat rail jibs from Greg Sing, Hayden Fowler, Lee Cruickshank
This morning, Kyle Baldock won the first stop of the Dew Tour in Ocean City, Maryland, and it's pretty easy to see why. I don't think I've ever seen someone nose a 720 in to a spine like that, and catch so much transition. Dudes ridiculous.
This was really fucking good. Some nice little ledge combos, some tricks you wont see everyone do, and some nice gaps. If these are scraps, keen as mustard to see what he'll bring with some proper clips.
Heres Jerry's new Tempered edit filmed by everybody's favourite wog Chris Lembo; there's so much ridiculous shit in here and the filming looks great, definitely a must watch! Also Jerry's new Tempered frame and bars have been released on their website and they look fresh as hell so make sure you check that out HERE.
Jerry Vandervalk took his camera on the recent Tempered Goods Canberra roadtrip. This is a mix of the footage he collected. This one shows a bit of the non-riding side of the trip, as well as second angles and unused lines. It's dope, check it out!
Jye Stuart sent over this edit he's put together of himself and a bunch of his homies. This was bullshit good. It features full sections from Cedric Tsing, Jeremy Tsing, Jye Stuart, and a split from Robbie Bennet and Beau Matthews, and a mix section featuring Adam Cox among others. I really enjoyed this, great to see a longer, well filmed edit filled with great riding depicting an entire scene.
Hell on Wheels are running this really dope competition at the moment. They've built up these two amazing customs from Bone Deth and Animal/Skavenger and you vote on which you think will sell first. If you get it right, you go into the draw to win a prize pack from that company. Visit their facebook to vote. Get on it! Thanks to John Young for the dope video!
Handsome John gives you the low down on Alex Liiv's river jumping deth sled. This is without doubt the best fucking bike check ever. Video by Sam Green
Primary Threads is branching out into denim and they produced this awesome little teaser of Chris Finnigan to promote them. From the teaser they look great and the fact that they're manufactured in Australia is amazing!
They should be available soon from one of your favourite Primary stockists, like Little Black Bike, LUXBMX Store or Backbone BMX.
More sweetness in the form of an edit from Rhys Newling/The Rad Theory featuring his boys Gary and Nathan. A few really cool little lines in this, and as always, the filming and editing is on point.
Jay sent us this sweet little boogie of himself. To quote the man himself "Nothing too serious, just shit that gets me stoked to be on a bike". I definitely got that feel out of it. Felt nice and cruisy. The five and seven over that tiny spine were pretty fucking legit. He had some cool little flowy lines around a park that didn't look like it had a lot of flow.
Joshua Robson sent over this edit of himself riding some park in south east queensland. Gotta be honest, in the first 20 seconds I'd all but written this off, what with the cased whip clip, but it actually ended up really good. the Footjam to bars, and bars to double pegs to bars were really impressive. As soon as his riding is a little more polished he'll be destroyin'!
Josh Irvine sent over this sweet little mix of him and his homies riding Nimbin and Goonellabah skateparks in North-Eastern NSW. Regardless of your opinions on Irvine, there's no debating that the dude knows how to ride a bike. That 360 to smith on the hubba was fucking bullshit. There was a bunch of other cool riding by his boys, too.
Dishonour, once again at the forefront of threads in this country, have collaborated with Quintin caps for this fresh "Ballin" cap. In this drop, they've also got a sweet hoody, which I'm sure will be great for this unusually harsh winter. To celebrate, they hooked up this dialled video with Brock Olive. You already know this is nuts.
The much anticipated, somewhat belated Dishonour Sydney to Adelaide trip video has finally dropped, and well, it's fucking rad! Their team Will Gunn, Jadan Roxburgh, Brock Olive, Daniel Dunn, Mikey McMah, Tom Blanch, Tenna, Chris Barnes, Sam Illman, Jake Shepherd and Brad Wright spent five days aboard Jason Cousins' Roadtripz bus. Personally, I've spent my fair share of time on the Roadtripz bus, and every time I venture on it, there is always a relaxed, fun vibe, and I feel James and Dre have captured this vibe in the video, while still presenting all the dope riding that went down. Everyone killed it. Can't wait to see more from the team.
Nick K is the latest rider to have a LUXBMX web video. In other LUX news make sure you get along to the LUX One Year Anniversary party this Saturday night at the store. There may even be a bit of a birthday sale during the day to spice things up.
Calvin Kosovich has started up this little series highlighting the WA scene, which I think is dope, because they really don't get the coverage they deserve. First up, is an interview focused on Royal BMX store, located in Perth. The store looks dialled, and the video was great. I look forward to the rest of the series
I wanted to post this while I was away, but I couldn't, and it slipped my mind til tonight. I fucking love all the Bullmix videos that Billy Brooks produces, because fun is clearly the name of the game, but some dope riding always comes out. BMX needs shit like this.
More good shit from the Billy Brooks and the rest of the Sydney posse. Including, but not limited to: blood splatter, shit talking, cats, girly looking Korean guys and bikes. Starring Billy Brooks, Lee Cruickshank, Mat Lawton, Ricky Muller, John Young and Tom Appleby.
I always get stoked on stuff by The Rad Theory because, as the name would suggest, it's pretty rad, and this edit of Garfield riding Beechworth stuck to that trend. Definately some cool, quirky moves in this. The 360 crankflip and nosepick to fakie were personal highlights. See kids, you don't have to ride a certain way to kill it!
