If you caught Marnold’s new edit that dropped the other day, you might have saw that I promised a fresh bike check from him. Well, today’s the day! We figured since Marnold recently built up this fresh new 4 pegged purple beauty from Colony that you guys would want to get a closer look. It also sounds like he’s got a few new sponsors to tell you about on top of that. So let’s do this!

What’s the newest part on your bike?
Rear hub guard. I had mine for a while..
What’s the oldest part on your bike?
What do you usually go through the fastest?
Grips or pedals.
Do you have any sort of paranoia’s with your bike? Do you have to have your bike set up a certain way at all?
Not really just like to have a dialed bike and no noises that’s about it..
Are you pretty set on the brakeless 4 pegs setup or do you dabble with other setups?
Fuck no. 4 pegs and brakeless is the only way to go been doin it since I started and I’m not changing it now.
What kind of money would it take to get you to run brakes for one month?
Haha, most likely not much. I love money.
How are things going with Colony these days? Does Clint or Cooper have anything in the works with you that you are getting stoked for? Trips, edits or anything like that?
Things are going really good with Colony as always. Nothing really goes wrong between us so it’s a good thing… I just brought out an edit so I don’t have much coming up in the edit wise. Cooper, Zingberg, Brock Olive and I are heading to China for a few days so no doubt we willl hopefully get a good edit out of that.
Any other fresh sponsor news you can tell us about?
Yeah recently got hooked up by Quintin clothing. It is awesome. Their gear is amazing I love it. So stoked to be riding for them.
So I’d imagine you probably love the summer life down in Australia while the rest of us are just coming out of the ice and snow. How has the summer been for you? Have you had the chance to travel or film much?
Haha, yeah, the aussie summer is amazing with hot weather and plenty of beachs to go to. This summer I didn’t really ride or film too much which I was a little bit bummed about, but now I’m riding and filming a lot so it’s good.
Where are some places you will be hitting up here soon? Anywhere you haven’t been but have been itching to go to?
We are heading to China for the Asian X-Games and then were staying for a few days after to ride and film for an edit which will be amazing… I really want to head to LA so hopefully later this year or early next year I can get there for a month or so.
When can we expect to see some fresh footage out of you? Any edits dropping soon that you can hint at?
Just a welcome edit to Quintin and DUB. I’m still gathering footage for them both so they hopefully it will be dropping soon.
Outside of riding, what have you been up to lately? Have you picked up any new hobbies or ways to kill some time?
All I do is spend time drinking with a few mates and hanging with my girl and work that’s all I do..
What’s the last song you heard, movie you watched and website you visited?
Song was Eazy-E. Eazy does it. Movie was pirates of the carribeen 3. Last site was ColonyBMX.com.au to work out what the names of parts were haha.
Anything else you want to say?
Just like to say thanks to you Kurt for the bike check. Clint at Colony for everything he has done for me. Jack at DUB and Rob at Quintin for the awesome clothes and gear shit. It’s fire boys. Keep it up!.. and of course Coops for putting up with my shit on the weekends and keeping us rollin!..
