I just finished reading Mike and Richie’s RIDEbmx interview and thought it was not only refreshing to read something out of the norm but also what they said about each others sport, how they go about their tricks/spots, their approach, and much more. Big ups to RIDE and Jeff Z for making this one happen, I haven’t been this stoked on an interview in a bit. Photo by Jeff Z/ RIDEBMX. Check it out in the latest May/ June RIDE here >>
“For our March/April issue, we contacted our contributing photographers with an idea…an idea to shoot a photo at a specific time on a specific day. The goal was to show a glimpse at the sheer amount of BMX that happens all over the country (and world). The results we got back were more than we hoped for. 16 photographers from 10 different cities came together to shoot for this project and it’s almost staggering to realize that it all happened at the same exact time. Thank you to everyone (see below) who took part in the project…maybe we’ll do another next year?” – RIDEbmx
If you want the full story and back story on a lot of the photos, please pick up the Mar/Apr issue of the mag.
Greg Moliterno has up a rad point and shoot gallery on RIDEbmx of his raw street images all around AZ and then some. While Mastroni was over in AZ filming The Finer Things, Greg caught some of these images of Balhman (pictured above), Hoss and Broc. more
This photo by Nick Jones of Billy Perry reminds me of what riding is all about; cruising the streets with your buds and hitting random spots along the way. RIDEbmx did a rad feature with a bunch of guys (Billy was one) about “A Moment in BMX,” which covered what different riders were doing at the same time across the U.S.
There’s some other amazing photos of the Volume crew that also got a ton of love in this latest issue of RIDEbmx 207. Be sure to check it out!
Huge thanks to everyone that came out last night to watch The Finer Things video at the Lido. Definitely surreal to see if finished and on the big screen. The guys have been busting their asses off for the last 2.5 years and glad to finally have their hard work all wrapped up and in a damn fine DVD that Mike Mastroni pieced together. This photo above says it all.
The video and tees will be shipping out today and will also be available on our shop. Jeff Z from RIDEbmx, and Kyle Carlson from VITAL bmx were also in a attendance at the premiere last night and somehow managed to get up these (RIDE’s / VITAL’s) rad galleries up in the middle of the night after partying hard with all the guys.
“Volume‘s first premiere for their new video The Finer Things went down tonight in Newport Beach, California at the Lido Live theater for a packed crowd of riders, included top pros, industry heads, and plenty of local riders. There has been a lot of publicity leading up to this video, and it’s been well deserved—The Finer Things delivers on all fronts with incredible riding from start to finish, top notch filming and editing, and not your typical, but well suited soundtrack. I already heard a few murmurs of “NORA Cup” and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Huge congrats to Volume, the whole team, and Mike Mastroni for putting together an incredible video. Whatever you do don’t slack on snagging yourself a copy—you’ll be glad you did!” —Z.
From broken arms, shoulders, wrists, kneecaps and various other body parts, nothing can stop Platt. This is just a small glimpse into what Platt has gone thru over the course of the couple years filming for his DVD section accompanied with some hospital footy and various B roll from our time filming together courtesy of Ride.
Shoutout to our good friends over at RideBMX and BMX Union for putting out some press on the new Vader tires. The Vader tires arrived just before Christmas and they have been flying off the shelves already. Our team swears by them and we think you will too! Available now in 2.25″ and 2.40″.

The fine folks at Ride BMX are leading the way in the finest of Texas Toast coverage this year. Here’s street finals in a nutshell with our own Zach Krejmas behind the K-cam. Congrats to Broc for coming in 8th and Bahlman for getting a clip operating a TRV900. For a drunken Nora Cup red carpet photo gallery featuring all your favorite BMX characters, click here.
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. Click top photo or click more to view the whole ad. more
Doing these video spotlights are probably the hardest part about Interbike, something about talking on camera is something we all don’t exactly crave to do. Stoked to have Broc come out to the show and do the RIDEbmx one this year. He runs through all the new colorways, parts, and completes. Thanks Broc!
