Here’s some news we’re sure a few of you saw coming. Brandon Begin is now doing it for Cult after announcing that he had parted ways with Fit Bike Co. last week. When the news dropped that he parted ways with Fit, we were trying to figure out what it would take to get Brandon to leave Fit, and apparently Cult had an opportunity worth taking. We didn’t expect this one in all honesty, but it looks like Brandon is already crushing it on his new setup. Check out this video welcoming him to the team loaded up with some real good riding. This is pretty short and sweet, but we would imagine we’ll be seeing Brandon getting in on the constant moves Cult is making in the future.
Any time you see Mike Mastroni‘s name pop up, you know you’re in for a treat. Either it’s a super dialed BMX video he filmed and edited, or it’s a riding video that is packed with creative, unique and original riding. Today we get both because he handled the filming and editing for “Headlights” as well as produced this amazing section that has so many crazy spots and unique clips. Hit play because this is too good to miss!
“Mike Mastroni pulled quadruple duty for Headlights as filmer, editor, producer, and rider. Mike (and his dog Bear) traveled the country in his Sprinter Van filming the entire crew, and every so often, he’d come across a setup that fit his unique style and get on the other side of the camera…” – Our BMX

Here’s one we’ve been looking forward to since Chris Doyle let it out that he was working on an interview with Stew Johnson for the Palaver Podcast. Today is the day that the interview dropped where it turned into over 2 hours of amazing stories and conversations covering Stew’s history in the industry and his film work, along with a lot of other things he gets into like making the “Real BMX” videos happen for the X Games. Stew isn’t a guy who likes to get in front of the camera much, but he did a great job with this. Hit play and take it all in!
“For this interview, I sit down with legendary BMX video maker, Stew Johnson. Stew is responsible for some to the most influential BMX videos of all time and has a career that has spanned nearly 25 years. On a personal level, Stew’s videos had a direct impact on my riding, the way I dressed, and the music that I listened to. I think the same could be said by countless riders from my generation. Stew still continues to push BMX in a positive direction through video; he produces X Games “Real BMX” on ESPN; a show that highlights street riders and filmers and shows what goes into filming a street video part. Watch/listen and find out more!” – Chris Doyle
It has been a little while since we’ve had something fresh from Mutiny Bikes to enjoy, but it looks like the brand is firing on all cylinders again after laying low for a bit. Here’s a fresh video they dropped featuring Jeff Wescott, Robbo and Tom Russell cruising street and DIY spots, ramps and trails over in the U.K! Needless to say, this is packed with some great riding, good vibes and super clean film work. This is definitely a BMX video you won’t want to pass up! After you check this out, make sure you get a look at the new Mutiny Bikes website!
“It’s been while since we had got some of the team together. It feels like even longer since we had new product… to celebrate the release of the new Comb frame. we sent Jeff Wescott over to ride with Robbo and Tom Russell. This video documents 10 days on the road with the guys. Of course being in the UK, the guys had to battle the rain and many other elements but when you are riding with your friends you’ve got to let the good times roll!” – Mutiny Bikes
Also, if you are curious what Mutiny has been up to as of late…
“If you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you’ll have noticed that we’ve been a little quiet over the last 18 months. It’s no secret that the industry is in a bit of tuff spot. Which in turn, has effected our manufacturing and international distribution. Well good news, next month we’ll finally have new product starting to become available.
A huge thank you to Brandon Hoerres for helping making the new site.
We were founded back in 1998, from a deep underlying cynicism towards the state of the BMX industry at the time. Mutiny Bike Co. has been rider owned and run for almost 20 years. Independently owned and operated from day one.
Our goals for all of our products are to create the most durable frames, forks, handlebars and parts to help further the progression of BMX riding. All while creating aesthetically pleasing products with no gimmicks.
We are here to support BMX. From our team to your local scene, we want to make sure that BMX never loses it’s D.I.Y philosophy and keep BMX in the hands of BMXers.“
The Vans BMX Pro Cup is heating up down in Mexico (literally) and things are already getting moist. Check out a bunch of highlights from the practice laps some of the guys have been getting in while figuring out the lines, dodging the water bubbling up in the deep end and more. It sounds like this park might not be quite as amazing as it looks, but the ramps that Jason Watts and Trey Jones added in seem to be on point! Check out what went down, along with some perspectives below!
“Water floating up from the cracks in the bowl messed up the first official day of practice—and we weren’t there anyway—so here’s what we’re calling the first official practice at the Mexico City stop of the Vans BMX Pro Cup.” – Our BMX
“There’s water in the bowl… and it’s coming from underground. Seriously. Watch this to see what the riders are dealing with and to hear from Trey Jones, Dennis Enarson, Chris James, Josh Dove, Matty Cranmer, and more!” – Vital BMX
The 2019 Vans BMX Pro Cup continues the series this weekend down in Mexico City, Mexico and it looks like it’s already shaping up to be another wild contest!

Here’s a video where Kevin Peraza cruises the park and gives you some insight on the place and the contest as a whole! We’re sure there will be no shortage of footage popping up from this one, so check back for more soon!
