“I just got back from a quick trip to Las Vegas Nevada shredding with my good homies Matt Closson and Jeff Wescott. Huge thanks to Jeff for smiling behind the lens on this one.And definitly coalitionbmx.com and amitybikeco.com for making this happen. Vegas was a +rip!” – Tammy
Amity Bike Co is one of those names that has been popping up more and more over the last year. I recall thinking the first time I saw the name Amity that it was just going to be a crew of guys from the U.K, but clearly, I was wrong. As time went on, I started getting more curious about the brand, and eventually I started noticing their product line and team growing at a fast pace. After an interview with Amity’s rider, Mike King, I decided it was time to get ahold of Amity and find out a little bit more about them. We had held off since a lot of things had been just starting to pop up with new products, addition of a U.S team and such. It took three months, but Marc and I finally got a chance to talk about the brand. This might just be the start for the brand, but if things keep going the way they are, we will be hearing more from Amity for years to come. Check out what Marc had to say, some product photos and some recent team edits. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments!
Amity added Matt Priest to the team a few months back, but just now have the welcome edit. I don’t care, the wait was worth it. Matt shreds. I’ve also got an On the Horizon from Amity in the inbox waiting to get posted, so expect that soon! Here’s some words on the edit…
“A few months ago, we announced the addition of shredder, and all round nice guy Matt Priest, to the Amity pro team after parting ways with Kink.
We were stoked to have Matt abroad and so we wasted as little time as possible in getting his ‘welcome edit’ done.
With the weather being unpredictable and trails pretty much ruled out of the question for a while, I jumped on a plane to Austin, Texas, where, thanks to Relentless Energy Drink, Matt is currently living for the next 3 months along with team mate Liam Eltham.
Matt had already been in town for a few weeks, so, already comfortable on some of Austin’s infamous spots, we began filming and came away with this.
Welcome to the team Matt!
A huge shout out to Relentless who have kindly provided Matt with a dope apartment where we were able to stay.

It looks like Jeff Wescott made the switch from Felt over to Amity‘s U.S pro team. Good to see Jeff making some moves and to see Amity expanding. I’m currently waiting on getting an On the Horizon back from Amity, so hopefully that shows up sooner or later. Hopefully…
Facu Guillamaundegui (what a name) has this new edit for Amity from Spain.

Mike King is one of those guys who has talent in front and behind a camera. This past year he has caught my attention time and time again with his edits and riding. I highly doubt you haven’t seen one of his edits if you keep up with the daily videos that pop up. I figured after the edit that dropped the other day that it was time for me to get ahold of Mike and ask him a few questions. Check out what Mike has to say, some photos and a bunch of his edits. Don’t forget to leave some love in the comments too!
