Alex is by far one of my favorite humans, the dude can rip it up on a bike, not take himself too serious, and is one of the happiest/ good dudes I know. Him and Devin Feil shot this rail ride a bit ago, and it turned out to be the perfect photo to show off Alex’s new ED Penny Bermuda V2 frame colorway for his new RIDEbmx print ad. On that same note, if you are interested in getting Alex’s ED Penny or Drew Hoss’ ED Blue, jump on it now. These colors are only available for a limited time.

Doing these video spotlights are probably the hardest part about Interbike, something about talking on camera is something we all don’t exactly crave to do. Stoked to have Broc come out to the show and do the RIDEbmx one this year. He runs through all the new colorways, parts, and completes. Thanks Broc!

Funny how we still work all year to show off our new goods/ samples at Interbike. Don’t know how much it’s relevant anymore but we still push towards this time of the year regardless. We have a slew of new parts that we’re excited to show off. Get clickin’ to see what we’ve been up to, hopefully you’ll get excited as we are on that new-new; 2.25 & 2.4 Vader tire (unbelievably stoked on how good it came out!), Broc’s new 9.25 Captain bar, VLM 50mm team stem, the Finer Things seats (coming in late this morning) and Broc Raiford’s Anchor fork w/ investment casted dropouts. Stay tuned for the next blog post with our new frame colorways! Click top image to see em all.

Currently not exactly this, but probably something just like it…only separate and in the future. I’ve made the trek out to Salt Lake once again to film with the one and only Tate Roskelley for his upcoming section in The Finer Things. Keep an eye out for some updates from our time out here, which may be including but limited to: photos of Tate looking at spots, photos of Elf, Faygo, water features, goat-head thorns, tandem bikes, etc…really just wherever the day takes us. Stay tuned for all of that & for now enjoy our split section from OSS’s “Ruin Your Whole Summer” which Tate hates.

Another year, another Interbike in Vegas. We can’t believe it’s already that time again. Didn’t we just ring in the new year not too long ago? If you’re going to be at Interbike next week, then stop by the booth, get some free items in these handy, biodegradable 180 Distribution bags, and check out the new Volume Bikes completes and parts we’re offering up for 2014/15. We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes getting another dialed line up going and we’re excited with all of the new colors, new completes, and new products. We’ve got a lot to show and we’re really excited to get them out there and see what people think. See you at booth 3103.

I always think it’s interesting to see guys coming up that seem to manage riding and work equally as good. And nothing’s harder than seeing your pro rider friends ride all day while you’re at work! Josh has been with us at 180 Distribution for little under a year and seems to manage the two fairly well. Plus he’s a powerhouse on his days off with stacking clips and learning new tricks on the daily. He never ceases to amaze me when he rides. We thought it would be cool to interview him on how he does it and show off what he does in the shipping dept too. Click above image to read/ see it all. more

Eric just recently went on a Barcelona trip and got to ride some amazing spots and play tourist for a bit, read below to see what he’s been up to:
I found one riding photo from my Barcelona trip. It’s not the best quality so I hope that’ll work for the update. It’s a hop bar in front of the Arc de Triomf.
“What’s up guys! The summer has been pretty hot out here in AZ but that hasn’t stopped me from riding. To escape the heat I’ve tried to travel a bunch. First, I headed out to Cali with Drew Hoss in July. We meet up with Mastroni to film for the upcoming Volume DVD “The Finer Things”. Stoked because it was a pretty productive trip for the whole crew. Can’t wait to see it when it comes out later this year!!
At the beginning of August I headed out to Barcelona for two weeks for a little summer vacation. I met up with Simone Barraco and Shadow TM Chadwick to hang out, shred and film for the Shadow DVD. Barcelona was amazing as always, so many good spots out there!
I also just found my old Hi-8 camcorder from back in the day so I bought a new fisheye lens for it and a filming handle. Be on the look out for an edit I’m working on with some local AZ shredders!
Well the next stop for me is Interbike in Vegas next week then Texas Toast/ Nora Cup in Austin October. Hope to see all you guys out there, Ciao!!” – Eric Bahlman

I’ve been waiting for these new Bermuda V2 frames/ parts to drop for some time now. Like you, I like some color in my life and the new ED colors look f-n amazing. New VLM grips also dropped today and think your sweaty will thank you for buying a pair. These things are soooo comfy!
*All the ED goods are for a limited time only, so jump on them while you have the chance.

Alright, catch up time…here’s the rundown. Day 7 we headed into Southsea, rode the skatepark for a minute, drank some coffee, then ventured out to finally ride some street spots. We stared out at the infamous Southsea tranny walls, did some carves, and even got a cheeky little Drew Hoss clip. From there we pedaled around some nooks and crannies of the city and managed to film a couple other things…shit Broc even learned a new trick. Unfortunately on the whole we don’t really have too much in the way of photos to show ya from the day here on the blog…that stuff will be going toward a Ride UK article at some point in the future. Beer, sleep, repeat: Day 8 brings us to Brighton for our shop visit to Brighton BMX. The city recently did away with the old wooden skatepark in the middle of the park, in favor of a new concrete one with crazy bowls, rails, ledges, and pretty much everything ya need. The park had tons of humans in it, but some of the crew still rode while others relaxed in the park over a nice BBQ courtesy of Bob from Brighton BMX..and Rusty manning the grill. We pretty much spent the afternoon grilling burgers, kicking it, watching Kris Fox kill the bowl, and catching some sun. Currently we are posted up in the Brighton Aint Ready apartment in between teams….thanks a ton to these dude for letting us crash here! Stay tuned for more updates and CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY.
