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.

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!
I’m always stoked to see when Jeff Z updates his Tumlr from past RIDEbmx magazine articles of our guys. This month, he put two amazing photos up of Jason Enns (above) and Mastroni (after the jump). Which are both amazing raw images, especially w/o text and blurbs around em from the mag. Check out Jeff’s Tumblr here >>more
The Volume crew originally went down to the local ditch near the office to hang out and film a couple things, and later called me to shoot “a double peg that Broc wanted to try”. Once I got down there and saw what he was eyeing up, I obviously was stoked to shoot one of the highest rail double peg grinds I’ll ever see. I’m no double peg historian on who did it higher or anything but this has got to be up there. Not only did he get it on the rail solid, he also went back over into the small bank seen in the third shot. This Vessel frame ad was featured in the new RIDEbmx 200 issue, and looks even better in print! Click image to view the whole ad.
