If you don’t know Alex Raban, he is always up to something creative with all types of artistic mediums. He’s been painting on his bike seats for as long as I’ve known him, and recently he dyed a couple of our VLM brown synthetic leather seats for himself. We liked em so much, we all thought it would be a cool idea to do a limited run. We gave Alex a few boxes of Tripod and Pivotal seats, and he hand dyed each one. Yes, not one is the same as the other. You can scoop one up on our ONLINE SHOP or at your favorite Volume dealer while supplies last. Act fast these will go quick!
Today we proudly present the last (or in fact the first) rider section in our The Finer Things DVD online release, DeMarcus Paul. Never having a traditional welcome video, DeMarcus’ DVD section served as his official footy debut as a member of the Volume family. His incredibly gnarly trick selection combined with powerful smoothness & technical precision is sure to bang you over the head. Enjoy!
In the midst of stacking clips for Volume 1 of our upcoming video project, Broc has been quite busy stacking some heavy clips of his own to promote his new Anchor Fork & Nautical Seat. Click for a few more sneak peak photos of Broc’s upcoming products and stay tuned for the video dropping within the next few weeks.
Our favorite strange hairy man, Alex Raban has a Soundtrack feature on DIG bmx with 10 eclectic tracks from his endless arsenal of tuneage. If you’re looking for something to ride to today, give this a listen!
Today we are very proud to present our veteran Volume OG Jason Enns’ section in The Finer Things. With a trifecta of his immense Southern California spot knowledge, a drive for exploration and discovery, and a mature & calculated approach to bike riding, how could one not put together an incredible video section? This is creative spot oriented California street riding at it’s finest. Enjoy!

Vital has up their ‘Five Best Products At Interbike’ and our new (Due out early next year) signature Drew Hoss Scepter forks made the list. Here’s what they had to say about em, “Volume and Drew changed things up for his new fork with the goal of bringing you a quality product at a low price. It seems like every year forks are getting more and more expensive and this is Drew’s answer to that. These forks are NOT investment-cast, which will make them some of the most affordable forks on the market. Drew has been on these for a while and swears by them. If you’re in the market for forks and the budget is tight, pick these up.” – Vital BMX
As is the case when any TFT sections drop online, today is a very exciting day in the life of Volume. We’ve previously done a DIG 48 hour only release with Raban’s section, but now it’s here on the web for you to enjoy forever. Ever since I met Alex he’s been nothing but smiles, so hopefully today he brings a smile to your face as well with some of the most progressive street riding & grind combos known to man. To us, his section embodies exactly what street riding is all about…enjoy!
Day 3 (last day) of Interbike 2015 is about to start and realized we haven’t done a blog post about all our new 2016 products yet. BMX Union, Vital, and Ride all did their videos and photos already on their sites. Our new goods out early next year is DeMarcus Paul’s War Horse series, that includes frame, fork, bar, seat and peg. Another new item is Drew Hoss’ Scepter fork also due out early next year also. Check them out after the jump for the complete run down. more
Today we proudly present Zach Krejmas’ part in The Finer Things DVD to the internet. During filming this part, Krejmas held down full time positions as Vital videographer to now full time RideBMX videographer. Ever the hard worker, Zach still managed to come on a few trips and stack the weekend clips little by little in order to come thru will a full section for the DVD. I’ve always been such a huge fan of Zach’s riding from his early days in Long Beach all the way till the present. The one thing that’s always fascinated me about Zach is his timeless ability to see all the potential the world in little everyday humps and bumps around town, which most people in Southern California wouldn’t even consider to be spots. A “setup rider” if you will, Zach is true testament to how limitless street riding really is, and how much of a picture you can really paint by just taking a deeper look at your surroundings. In short, Krejmas’ world begins at your doorstep. Enjoy!
The last leg of our New York trip landed us at Dah Shop in New York City. It was a good turnout and we came up on a litle sidewalk space in between 4 lanes of traffic right down the street to set up a flat rail, some grind boxes, and a bunnhop bar. It was rad riding with the locals, Tyrone, and even some New York legends were in attendance as well. Thanks to Dah Shop for having us and everyone who came out and had a good time! Here’s a ton of photos from the day by Zachary Honahan and Myself. Click to expand gallery.
We couldn’t be more stoked on all the love ‘The Finer Things’ has been getting from our fans, shops, and now making it in the top 5 Nora Cup 2015 nominations. We’re also very proud of our man, Broc Raiford for getting nominated for Video Part Of The Year and also making it in the Readers’ Choice top 5. To us, we already won. Thanks again!
