facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

With just a few days until the 4th of July and the Salute to the 4th BMX Contest that we’re helping to throw at Silverlake Skatepark here in Rochester, Minnesota. We have a bunch of prizes showing up on the doorstep to give away for some of the winners of the contest. Our friends over at Fly Bikes were more than gracious enough to hook us up with one of their 2015 Proton complete bikes to give away to one of the winners of the contest, so we wanted to take a minute to give you a closer look at this bike as a thank you, and because let’s be real… It’s one dialed BMX bike! Above you can find a quick time-lapse we put together from building up the bike which took only about 15 minutes start to finish. After you make the jump we’ll give you the full specs and some close up photos giving you a better look at this bike! Ready? Let’s do this!

Fox BMX – Scotty Cranmer: Made For This

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Wow… This is nothing short of amazing! Fox BMX released this brand new Scotty Cranmer video that is PACKED with banger after banger. We get a little insight into what got Scotty hooked on BMX, then he hits up some unique street spots giving us a look at a side of his riding we don’t get to see all too often, along with a bunch of bangers at the Incline club and a few other parks. This video has a few crazy clips where they overlapped a few different lines from Scotty and put them into one which is really cool. Plus, there’s a massive Fufanu which is badass, and that ender… Wow. Just watch!

From a young age, the New Jersey native has proved that BMX has always been a constant in his life. Like many riders, Scotty Cranmer started his career in BMX racing. He knew then that BMX was going to be more than just a hobby. Anyone who has ever seen him ride knows he has the ability to ride anything with ease and confidence. Scotty proves year after year that he was made for this and his passion and dedication to the sport has not only made his riding career successful, but has earned him the respect of everyone around him.

The Subrosa Street Rail

subrosa-street-rail-bmx-rail

When it comes to BMX, there’s only a handful of times we’ve seen brands try and step “outside of the box” so to speak with products that aren’t specifically related or attached to the bike directly. Subrosa have been doing some interesting things with some of these unique products like their Combat Locks and more recently, the Street Rail. For as long as pegs have been a thing, riders have been riding flat rails at skateparks or a flat rail designed for skateboarding or by building their own with some welding and fabrication skills. It’s kind of a surprise a brand hasn’t tried to release their own flat rail before Subrosa decided to make the move. Either way, since its release, we’ve been seeing this rail popping up in videos and at contests all over the world from sessions that well known pros all the way down to the young gun beginners have been getting in. We figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look at this rail and find out just what makes it so special.

Federal – Split Series: Anthony Perrin & Michal Smelko

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Federal Bikes have just released the first installment of their new “Split Series” videos which will feature two of their team riders putting in heavy work for a video. Today we get a look at the split section from Anthony Perrin and Michal Smelko crushing spots in Israel. It would also appear that Rich Forne was behind the lens for this one, which should be a clear indicator that the filming and editing is amazing as well. Not sure if Rich is the filmer for this whole series or not, but we would be stoked if he was. Either way, hit play already and take this all in! Absolute banger.

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Here’s a BMX video we’ve been waiting to see for a few weeks now. The Subrosa crew made their way to Sin City for their annual team meeting and some serious spot destruction all around the city. Check out this video packed full of highlights from their time in Las Vegas because it’s seriously banger after banger. Must See for sure!

VIVA LA$ VEGA$!

You’re going to need to take a seat, turn the bass up, and enjoy 15 minutes of GOLD from Hoang Tran, Kyle Hart, Lahsaan Kobza, Scott Ditchburn, Nick Bullen (injured), Simone Barraco, Joris Coulomb, Kevin Kalkoff, Johnny Atencio (Johnny Ice), Jono Hopping and Matt Ray! With a crew like this, and Kanode behind the lens, you know you can expect greatness. Elvis would be proud.

We worked hard, rode hard, partied hard, hosted a Park Party, had our annual team meeting, and introduced you to the Subrosa A-Frame Rail. What more could you possibly want from us? This is our third year of destroying a city one spot at a time.
This year was special because we had a few extras on the trip from our Skeleton Crew and Flow team. Matt, Jono, and Johnny all hold it down! Oh and not to mention the man himself, Ryan Sher, snuck in a clip as well.

We want to thank Matt Closson and Wes McGrath for all their hard work and guidance.

Any requests for our destination next year?
