As BMX gets older and older, the new generation of extremely talented bike riders emerging from parents who used to/still ride BMX is becoming more and more commonplace. Our very own Josh Clemens is fortunate enough to be one of those lucky kids raised on a steady diet of BMX by his father Tim Clemens, who still rides all the time and owns Gonracin BMX shop in Klamath Falls, OR. Tim is a modest guy to say the least and doesn’t really feel the need to be in the spotlight, but that didn’t stop Josh from scanning some old images of his Dad killing it for Snake Bike BMX’s “Shoebox” feature.

Broc gives you an in depth look at the art of the hop 3. Even if you’re already good at this trick, you could definitly learn a thing or two from watching this, I did. Video by Zach Krejmas via Ride BMX.
Very rarely do we get any shipments that arrive earlier than expected but today came that rare day when our Broc Raiford signature Anchor forks just arrived out of thin air. We also just put up the Anchor fork specs on it’s page here too>> Contact your local Volume dealer to order yours today!
Just another day with DeMarcus now that he’s working on multiple video projects and is now considered one of the hardest working dudes out there. He’s nonstop and can’t wait to see what he has coming out later this year. Mastroni has a couple things already in the works with him… Up-rail to whip photo by J.Cobbs.
Here’s some more photos from the final day of our trip which we spent riding tons of amazing & untouched spots in Josh’s hometown. In fact it was actually the most productive day of the entire trip! Josh’s dad was also out and about with us all day, and came away with a new appreciation for all the hard work that goes into getting even just one clip. Thanks again to Josh’s dad and the rest of the Clemens family for their hospitality. Click to expand gallery. Photos by Devin Feil.
Completes are about to drop next month and so we made a 18″X24″ poster (front and back print) for all those that want to drool over the bike of their dreams or put up a hefty wallride from Broc Raiford. You can get the poster for 1 penny on our shop now here>>
The complete bike pages are up and running with photos and full specs for our District, Infantry, 26″ Hessian and also added a signature bike for Broc Raiford here>>
Yesterday we left Portland and made the trek back down south to visit Josh’s Dad’s shop GonRacin BMX in Klamath Falls. The Clemens family recently re-purposed their old backyard mini ramp materials into various ledges and rails which now inhabit the shop parking lot, so kids were really hyped to ride that stuff with us. Josh’s family also came thru with tons of pizza and a giant 6 foot long subway sandwich. We stuffed our faces, did a little hop contest, played footdown, threw out some product, then went up to the local skatepark to ride for the rest of the afternoon. Huge thanks to the Clemens family for having us at the shop, and also for putting us up in their house too! Photos by Devin Feil. Click to expand gallery.
Yesterday we had our much anticipated shop stop at Goods BMX, a staple in the Portland BMX scene. It was a solid turnout and it was also rad to see so many kids from the Gresham shop come hang for this one too. We rode the flat rail, played footdown, threw out TONS of freebees, and signed posters & DVD’s for everyone too. Thank you everyone who came out and special thanks to all around great dude Shad for having us! Goods times. Click to expand gallery. Photos by Devin Feil.
After our bike shop obligations the day before, it was nice to have a full day of filming to ourselves as it was also our final full day here in Portland. We used the day to get back to some spots for unfinished business, tie up some loose ends, and do eveeryone’s favorite thing – ride some uncharted territory. Here’s Day 8 at a glance by Devin Feil.

We had a great time stopping by Gresham Bicycle Center yesterday and hanging with all the local kids. We played BIKE, had a race, did some games of foot-down, tossed out some prouct, signed bikes & posters, and finally had a late afternoon session at the local skatepark. Thanks again to everyone for coming out and Gresham Bicyles for having us! Photos by Devin Feil.
Day 6 started off at a rad DIY jersey barrier spot tucked away in a residential neighborhood. We warmed up there for a while then spent the majority of the rest of the day in & out of the van scoping out potential setups. Even though school is out for the summer, it seemed like most of them still had functions going on. We did end up getting a couple clips in the bag tho, then we spent the remaining daylight hours exploring the deepest depths of Portland’s industrial areas. Photos by Devin Feil.
