Green Valleys With Jonny Mac!

Do you like riding dirt jumps? Do you want to learn how to ride those jumps like a boss? Well we have a treat for you. The dudes at The Trail Garden at Green Valleys MTB park have teamed up with one of the raddest dudes to ever throw a leg over a BMX bicycle to teach you how to shred. Jonny Mackellar has been hanging down at the trail garden with Dave and the crew a bunch lately and has been shredding the hell out of the trails. If you are keen on some tips and pointers from Read More...

Sydney Park Skatepark!

It is looking like this may actually eventually happen. The initial concept designs have been released but we all have until the end of the day to give the council some feedback. The design looks pretty good at the moment and there is the prospect of an additional deeper "flow bowl" being added to the park at a later date. Personally we feel like the flow bowl needs to be part of the plans now as it will make our local park pretty damn amazing for all the BMX riders out there.Click this link to give your Read More...

Benn Pigot & John Young Are The Best!

If you do one thing today make sure it is clicking the video below and watching the whole damn thing from start to finish!

Freedom Isn’t Free?

Is freedom free? That is a relatively loaded question but in the context of feeling that awesome sense of freedom that riding a BMX bike gives you then I would have to say - hell yeah it's free and to me nothing solidifies this more than being out in the beautiful countryside riding jumps made out of dirt with a close group of friends. I was lucky enough to join a close group of mates for one hell oof a good time a coupe of weeks ago. Greenvalleys Mountain bike Park has acquired the services of our legendary Read More...

The Bulls Bandits

Just in-case you somehow managed to miss the amazing masterpiece that was Red Bulls incredible re-incarnation of BMX Bandits from last year then check it out before we go any further......Now that you are appropriately stoked out of your mind I can tell you about how stoked a BMX nerd as tragic as myself became when Red Bull asked me to rebuild and service 2 out of the 3 bikes used in the video. Corey Bohan decided to keep his bike (and why the hell wouldn't you????) but Hucker and Leanna Curtis' bikes needed some TLC before being retired Read More...

My Safe Word Will Be Whhhiskey

Possibly one of the weirdest and most wonderful things ever has happened here in Newtown recently and it's random-ness is sure to amaze you. About 6 months ago I started getting phone calls from a group of people who wanted to build some kind of hybrid BMX meets penny farthing kind of contraption for an upcoming whiskey commercial. After 4 or 5 confusing conversations, the calls stopped and I then assumed that they had figured that it was a stupid idea and that they should scrap the whole project.Until this appeared on Xave Koens Facebook last week.........Sooo it Read More...

The Truth……..

BMX most definitely is freedom! That feeling you get when you first fly down the street and catch a bit of air off a crappy home made jump is pretty much the best ever. The faster you go the better it gets! That wonderful contraption known as the BMX bicycle has given us all endless amounts of fun and taken us all on loads of rad adventures. So much of our life experience has in some form or another come from riding our bikes. Sometimes I feel we all need to stop and appreciate just how many of the amazing Read More...

Race Face

Soooo. Although I love racing, I do not often watch BMX racing edits as a lot of the time they are filmed on smart phones and often use one out of five or six over used techno songs which cause my ears and brain to bleed. This video however has broken the stereotype. Well filmed, with a catchy hip hopity tune - watching this has made me want to drop everything and go to the track and pedal my arse off. Enjoy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NRNLIX3Bwo Read More...

BF-IT

It is no secret that Brian Foster is a hero of mine. Hero may be a slight understatement as half of the back room here in the store is virtually a shrine dedicated to "the blue falcon". Many of you will know exactly why I have such a man crush on BF and many of you may be too young to even know who this legend is. Brian is one of the greatest bike riders in the history of history and he was one of the bigger names when I first started riding and racing BMX back in the Read More...

Bicycle Onion!

No, not this.........Those English scallywags over at Bicycle Union have always been a favourite of ours and we are stoked they have found themselves a new distributor here in Aus through Kickass Distribution. We have just started to recieve a bunch of BU goodies here in the store and we are psyched.The much loved and ever awesome Love Hate gloves have made a triumphant return and are waiting to decorate your digits!Having hacked up shins seems to come as part and parcel with being a BMX rider and we all wear our shin scars with pride, a reminder of Read More...
