The Finer Things: Alex Raban

Mastroni | 09.21.15

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!

Interbike 2015 Update

Brian | 09.18.15

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

The Finer Things: Zach Krejmas

Mastroni | 09.14.15

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!

New York Trip: Dah Shop.

Mastroni | 09.11.15


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.

The Finer Things: Josh Clemens & Eric Bahlman.

Mastroni | 09.10.15

Today we’re very proud to drop Josh & Eric’s split section from The Finer Things DVD. With riding styles that couldn’t really differ more from eachother (left foot forward/cassette, right foot forward/freecoaster wizard) we found it fitting for Josh & Eric to share a lengthy splitter to mix the video up a little bit. From Josh’s style and bike control to Eric’s back wheel ballerina wizardry, we know you’ll be impressed. This is also one of my personal favorite sections in the video and probably my favorite song as well. Enjoy!

New York Trip: The Vicious Cycle Shop Stop.

Mastroni | 09.9.15


Yesterday’s shop stop at The Vicious Cycle in Long Island was a great one! Vicious is a relatively new shop and we had the honor of being their first visiting team. The local scene in central Long Island is definitely growing and we at Volume are happy to be a big part of that growth. Billy and this shop have been holding it down for us since day one, so it was great to pay them a visit and see what the shop is all about. Thanks again to Vicious for having us, and thanks to anyone who came out and had a good time…cheers guys! Photos by Austin Pendergast, Chris Germ, Marty Tannenbaum, and Myself.
