Perfect quote to start it off: After finishing up The Finer Things were you and the team eager to work on something straight away?
Definitely. I think everyone is proud of what we accomplished as a team with TFT, however time keeps on ticking and everyone remains eager to film.
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!

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.

Here’s a pretty hefty blog update for you guys from our travels in the deepest depths of Long Island to the crusty streets of NYC. In a nutshell, the city has been good to us and we’ve spent the last few days pedaling around downtown & hitting spots uptown in search of all those great clips that make us happy.

So we’re here in the big apple for the next 6 days with the likes of Broc Raiford, DeMarcus Paul, and of course New York resident Billy Perry. This trip is primarily to wrap up filming for our next video project, plus some product promo stuff, and some bike shop visits as well. If you live in the area, you can catch us Tuesday at Vicious Cycle, and Wednesday at Dah Shop. Until then follow along with our daily blog updates, and on Insta with #VLMNYC. Thats all for now, click to expand gallery from Day 1.

“Our main man, Mike Mastroni has a new interview/ podcast up on TCU where he talks about his early riding/ filming career to his current position with Volume. He definltey goes in-depth on some things and is a good interview to hear Mike’s process on his riding and filming. Photo by Scott Marceau.”

Here’s my section from The Finer Things DVD. Its always a little awkward writing about yourself but I will say I’m definitely very, very proud of this section and I’m really happy to be able to contribute something new to the BMX community, not only with my section but with this DVD as a whole. If you like what you see, pick up a copy for your personal collection and support what were doing. Thanks for watching & I hope you enjoy! <3
What can honestly be said about Mike Mastroni that hasn’t been said in the last year or so, he’s done a ton of press on our ‘The Finer Things’ video than most riders do in a lifetime. It’s always a slippery slope when a filmer is also a badass rider but prefers to film his friends/ team instead of focusing all the attention on himself. We finally got Mike to sit down and write down a quick THEN (past 5yrs) and NOW for your reading pleasure. Hit more to see what he says: more
Days 3 and 4 (Saturday and Sunday) were our first official riding days here in the fine city of Portland, and they were definitely some great ones! We’ve got all around awesome dude Ben Hucke showing us around for the week and coming thru with some great spots, and we’ve also managed to find a couple little gems of our own along the way too. Here’s some photos from quite the productive weekend. Stay tuned for more updates. Photos By Devin Feil. CLICK TO EXPAND GALLERY. #watchvolume1
So we’re currently up here in our lavish vacation rental deep in the woods about 20 minutes above the fine city of Portand, Oregon with the likes of Zach Krejmas, DeMarcus Paul, Billy Perry, Josh Clemens, Myself, and Devin Feil. We’ll be staying here for a little over a week filming for our new video project, but also hitting Gresham Bikes, Goods, and ofcourse GonRacin BMX on our way back down. Here’s our last couple driving / spot prospecting days at a glance. We ended up breaking it up a little by staying with Josh’s family in Klamath Falls the first night, then doing a little sightseeing on our drive to Portland too. Shoutout to Josh’s awesome parrents for the hospitality there. Expect daily riding updates from here on out and follow along with our trip with #volumeoregontour and #watchvolume1
