BMX Union just posted the first official review we’ve seen of “The Finer Things” video that just released two weeks ago. We’re stoked on their review, and in general, we’ve been blown away by the reception we’ve received from shops, industry folk, pro riders, customers, and social media. In house, we were excited with the end result, but to hear everyone, outside the office and team, saying such good things, and it getting people stoked to ride in new ways, we couldn’t be more proud. I’m sure more reviews are on the way in magazines and media sites, but go check out BMX Union’s review right now. If you haven’t, then head over to your local store to pick up a copy, or your favorite mail order. We’re running low on copies and waiting for our re-order to come in.
Billy has been working on this one for over 10 months with filmer Justin Koebele and it definitely shows. He’s got everything covered from cool street spots, technical, to burly tricks. Don’t sleep on this one, it’s a must watch!
So many kids ask us how they get sponsored and while we give them the usual vague answer, there is no real mathematical equation. Other than being super humble, fitting the image of the brand, being a cool kid and being a badass on a bike, there isn’t too much more… That and putting out an exceptional online edit. This Welcome to Odyssey that Broc put out a few years back helped us decide. Now the dude is a powerhouse in just a few short years, funny how it all works out.
We’re getting ever closer to the release of The Finer Things release and we can’t wait. We’re currently working on our world premiere here in sunny Southern California, and have shop premieres in the works as well. If you’re a dealer and are also wanting to have a premiere at your shop from mid to late February, then hit up Brian or Kevin at 562-926-5828. Here’s the trailer to get hyped again.
This is awesome! If you happen to know both Eric Bahlman and Shadow TM Ryan Chadwick, then you already know that they’re basically the same human. BMX has brought these long lost brothers together many many years ago, and has recently brought them to Tempe Skatepark for several Tuesdays in a row to make this video. Vital.
Here’s the second installment of our Tea & Biscuits UK Tour in affiliation with our partners in crime on the other side of the pond, Elephant Distribution and featuring riders from Volume, Demolition, and Markit US & UK. Our very own Broc Raiford, Drew Hosselton, and UK connect MJ tear up some of England’s finest skateparks and bike shop establishments with the likes of Kris Fox, Jordan Aleppo, Vince Mayne, Rob Wise, and Steve Bancroft. It was a wild journey to say the least. Enjoy!
I’m currently wrapping up the editing process on our second installment of the Tea & Biscuits tour in affiliation with Elephant Distribution, and it’s coming your way this Monday! The video features Volume riders Broc Raiford and Drew Hosselton as well as Demolition & Markit dudes US & UK at some of England’s finest skateparks & shops. Get hyped.
Drew may be a magical wizard of sorts underneath his seemingly normal BMX rider exterior, and if you watch closely there’s certainly proof of this theory in this video part. Certain tricks/obstacles conquered within this section have previously been deemed impossible or un-attainable by all of Arizona BMX mankind. Note the curvewall to flat wall to curvewall at :43, managing to find probably the only legit storm door in all of Arizona at 1:58, the tree crankarm at 2.40, and obviously the final line. How does gravity allow Drew to stick to the dead space in the middle of the wall? How does he slide sharp metal pedal pins across squishy bark?…or backwards manual plates that aren’t even attached to anything?? Obviously some sort of magical powers only possessed by Drew. Here’s to being inventive, here’s to now…
