Tate In Cali Part Two.

Mastroni | 02.12.13


Due to a little trip overlap I am currently sitting pretty in Costa Rica on a Demolition trip while Tate is still at my house probably engaging in illegal activities with Platt…or perhaps reading more magazines with strapping young men on the cover from the “happy” coffee shop next door. Regardless of what Tate may or may not be up to at the moment, he managed to make the most of his short stay in California clip-wise by doing what we do best, look for weird shit to ride… more

Volume In California Trip Edit.

Volume Bikes: Volume In California Trip. from 180 Distribution on Vimeo.

To kick off the new year right we decided drop some heat on ya from damn near the entire team! Back in November we loaded the van to the brim, stuffed our belongings in the U-Haul and headed North in search of some of of the best spots in California. Stops include Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, Nipomo, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, San Jose, and San Fransisco…as well as some home turf gems in the mix. With the exception of SF, you could say we weren’t exactly staying on the beatin’ path…and that’s exactly how we like it. I’m really excited about how this came together, so grab a cup of your best hangover remedy, kick that now lesser attractive girl out of your bed, and go ride your bike. Happy 2013 Everyone!

Featuring Drew Hosselton, Alex Raban, Jason Enns, Broc Raiford, Lil D, Tate Roskelley, Mike Mastroni, Mike Jonas, & Eric Bahlman.

Weekends With Victor G.

Mastroni | 11.27.12


I just got back into the LBC from a nice long weekend up in the central coast hanging out with Alex Raban and our newest addition to the B squad Victor Galindo. In just 3 short days and nights we amassed quite a small mountain of footage, claimed mountains in the van, went to a rave party, & much more. And yes, Victor G is a G…check out his newly updated team page and scope our weekend below…

Volume In California: Day 7

Mastroni | 11.22.12


We started out the session at this sketchy and slippery grate bank down along the bike path in San Jose for a clip that Tate had mind. D and Bahlman were also feeling the setup and walked with a downside whip, the above 180 on to fakie bar, and all their fingers still in tact. Tate on the other hand was not so lucky…in the process of trying his line which ended in a Roskelley signature footplant bar into the bank, the top right pannel somehow detached itselt and fell thru, along with Tate, leaving him with a bruised hip and a pretty gnarly hit to the funny-bone.

Volume In California: Day 6.

Mastroni | 11.19.12



Day 6 started out with a nice warm sunny morning cruising around the streets of Joey’s town of residence, San Jose. We were kind of in a squeeze for time because we had a shop stop later in the day, but that didn’t stop Broc and D from taking advantage of some gems real quick. Here’s Broc above eying up a bar over the rail from ledge to ledge…

Volume In California: Day 4.

Mastroni | 11.13.12


After a night of abandoning our shitty hotel in favor of one without bed bugs and scumbags surrounding the parking lot, we met up with Kink’s Chad Osborn and headed out to Fresno High to get the session rolling. That school was seriously stacked and it didn’t take very long for the creative juices to start flowing….

Volume In California: Day 3.

Mastroni | 11.12.12


Day 3 started off picking up the other half of the crew at their hotel in Santa Maria. Raban pulled up in his swagon wagon with a lit fire cracker which he then threw out the window directly into Bahlman’s hoody. All I heard was Raban say “oh no!….” right before it exploded bloodying his neck and blowing a pretty sizable hole in his sweatshirt.

Volume In California: Day 2.

Mastroni | 11.11.12

We started off day two at quite possibly the funnest “warm up” spot to ever exist, known as The Rec in the heart of Nipomo, CA. This ghetto ramp paradise provided us with a great team session and even a couple insane clips courtesy of Jonas, Tate, and Broc to start the day off right. Keep an eye out for a flipbook from this spot soon, and in the meantime check out the rest of our day below…

Stevie’s Last Days In Cali.

Mastroni | 08.20.12

Stevie’s been working really hard on some upcoming videos for us…so hard that we decided to fly him home to rest for a couple days before we fly to England tomorrow for the Tea & Biscuits Tour. I’ve always wanted to take Stevie to the above spot in Long Beach, and on Thursday we finally got around to it. After waking up from one of his numerous van naps, young Steven had a bit more of an unconventional approach to riding this runoff spout, which is usually reserved strictly for doing tricks into. We did however get one of those too, and everyone walked away happy and without getting hit by any cars.
