Attention: Shameless self posting. For all you die hard Volume site readers out there who may have noticed I haven’t been in the mix as much lately, it’s because I’ve been out and about working really hard to wrap up my own section in The Finer Things. Having spent the last couple years very much dedicated to finding spots and filming everyone else, I’ve been taking this time to focus more on my own section, make my ideas a reality, and make it as good as can be. I’ve been told before I have a one track mind and am totally incapable of multi-tasking….for the most part this is absolutely true. Our friend Devin Feil shot this in the midst of getting one of my bucket list ideas done the other day right here in Long Beach with our very own Josh Clemens behind the lens. – Mike Mastroni

This years Vital’s Game Of Bike has a few of our riders in it and can’t wait to see how it all goes down. This year it’s actually at a street plaza (Hollenbeck Plaza in Los Angeles) and with ‘real’ street riders. Our dudes, DeMarcus Paul, Josh Clemens and Broc Raiford will all be in it. The contest goes down this Saturday and will be live on Vital’s website.
“This Saturday, October 4th we’re taking over Hollenbeck Skatepark in Los Angeles and bringing sixteen of the best riders together to compete. This weekend’s street event marks the first time we’ve split Game of BIKE into separate street and ramp editions. We’re expecting the riding to be insane since riders will have to dig deeper to competing against riders of the same discipline. Join us and take in the good times and amazing riding. The event starts at noon and we expect it to continue until 5:00 pm.” – Vital BMX

With all the love our limited ED colors have been getting on the Bermuda V2, Barista bars and Hatchet forks, we thought we’d build up our own ED Penny Bermuda V2 bike with all our new samples from the trade show. This thing looks amazing and couldn’t be more stoked on how the complete bike looks. Hit up your local Volume dealer to order one of your own now while supplies last. Check out more in detail after the jump. Hit top image to view it all…

We’ve been sitting on this bars shot for DeMarcus’ new Bermuda bike check but since it’s a rad photo (especially since those lil’ quarters are tight and hard to ride) and it’s DeMarcus’ birthday, we figured it would be only fitting to get it up today. Be on the lookout for his new bike check to drop later this week. While you’re at it be sure to give him a follow/ shout on his FB page here>>. Photo by J.Cobbs. Hit it to go BIG.

With all new stuff dropping right before Interbike and all of our samples coming in now, majority of the team guys are now building up new rides with all the new goods. Drew is the first one up with his new ED Blue colorway on the Bermuda V2. The ED is limited, so if this colorway gets you stoked, get at your local Volume dealer asap. Check more to read/ see what else Drew rides and to see Drew’s new perm… Shoutout to Erik Hilburn for the photos. more

Our Japanese rider, Akira Sakata, just sent over this new edit of the Flourish crew shredding Oyama Skate Park. In case you missed it a couple months ago, check out the Volume & Demolition in Japan video, which shows the crew make a stop at Akira’s shop, Flourish BMX Shop.

Mediocre at Best: Drew Hosselton from Bobby Kanode on Vimeo.
Drew may be a magical wizard of sorts underneath his seemingly normal BMX rider exterior, and if you watch closely there’s certainly proof of this theory in this video part. Certain tricks/obstacles conquered within this section have previously been deemed impossible or un-attainable by all of Arizona BMX mankind. Note the curvewall to flat wall to curvewall at :43, managing to find probably the only legit storm door in all of Arizona at 1:58, the tree crankarm at 2.40, and obviously the final line. How does gravity allow Drew to stick to the dead space in the middle of the wall? How does he slide sharp metal pedal pins across squishy bark?…or backwards manual plates that aren’t even attached to anything?? Obviously some sort of magical powers only possessed by Drew. Here’s to being inventive, here’s to now…

So stoked for our man, Broc Raiford for going all in at all the Dew comps. This one is no different and he pulled off some crazy moves I never even knew he could do. Broc scored 4th place in street and got ahead of some heavy hitters. Check the video highlights above to see what he did.

I am now relaxing out East in my hometown of Kent, Connecticut after spending an awesome week in my other home away from home (Salt Lake City) with creative genius Mr. Roskelley and of course our good friend Elf. We studied some new spots, got creative, got some clips, drank some beers…you know, like what you do on a trip. CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY. Shoutout to Riley Smith for the photos.

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.
