Next up on the stops through the suites of the Mandalay Bay, we have the Tip Plus booth where we got a look at some of the new items that Stranger and Primo have been working on! There’s new bikes and parts to see, so let’s get into this and take a look!
Next up was a trip to our friends from Rochester, New York, Kink Bike Co. to get a look at their full range of BMX frames, bikes and parts. As always, the crew at Kink have a bunch of rad new products that you’ll definitely want to take a look at including a unique piece they’re developing for freecoasters…
Monster Energy have released Ed Zunda’s section from the “Above Below” BMX video online for your viewing pleasure! Eddie comes through with a ton of fire grind lines and the filming and editing is on point with Rich Forne behind the lens. Must See for sure!
“Hailing from the streets of Riga, Latvia… Ed Zunda stepped his game up for his ABOVE section and dropped everything from full speed lines to a special NBD you can see at the end!”
A few months ago, Chris Rye announced that he was in the process of putting together a collectors edition box set that would include all of the Road Fools videos that Props produced in its time along with some bonus footage and extra features that would help show its legendary history to the fullest. For those of you who have been riding BMX for years, you most likely have some good memories from the hours you spent watching the videos, getting stoked, remembering the lines and riding that has pushed BMX to new levels like myself.
A few weeks back, the box set was finally completed and recently released for riders from around the world to relive all of the miles that were racked up in its nearly 15 year history. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a copy to check out and figured I would put together this review for you to check out.

There’s two really big reasons why I’m stoked to present this photogallery. The first is that Tristan Thiel came through huge with a bunch of really great photos from the 2nd Annual BV Jam featuring Reed Stark, Erik Elstran, AJ Haines, Nick Harkins, Spencer Sullivan and a few others!
Second, I’m stoked to finally drop The Union’s brand new photogallery! It’s been a long time in the works, and thanks to Andrew Brady I was able to get my ideas into a working gallery! Expect more photogalleries SOON!
LAUNCH THE GALLERY RIGHT HERE!
Well, it looks like it’s that time of the year again. Everyone is flocking to hell, I mean, Las Vegas for Interbike once again, including myself. These people will either be displaying their new products, checking out the new products or becoming too drunk to know what’s going on. This will be my 4th year of covering the event for you guys right here on The Union and I’m trying to prepare my mind for absolute melt down. A few weeks ago I was starting to get the vibe that a lot of brands weren’t going to be doing booths this year ( Odyssey, Volume and Demolition for example) and that the BMX section would be a bit of a ghost town compared to the past few years. But after this week with so many brands dropping sneak peeks at their 2012 products and talking about Interbike, I think my initial concerns have been diminished. Between the new brands like And Forks and brands like Fly announcing a full line of complete bikes, I’m not for seeing a lack of stuff to check out.
So starting tomorrow, check back frequently since I’ll be cruising a few booths, then running back to upload what I came across at each booth, then repeating for three days. I’ll try not to disappoint.
I’ll make a note of it in each post, if I don’t get you the information you were looking for or a good shot of something you wanted to see. Leave a comment and I’ll make sure to get an answer or a better photo for you. Also, feel free to leave some comments in here with what you would like to see as well from the show.
