There’s no denying that BMX has seen A LOT of color over the years and we have seen just about every color under the sun from bright florescent colors to 50 shades of black to some shiny and matte colors and as of late, wraps that are looking pretty rad as well! The past few months we have seen some interesting color options from brands like Odyssey, The Shadow Conspiracy, Tree Bicycle Co., Demolition Parts, Madera and Profile Racing that have been getting a lot of love. We figured it would be fun to see just what color takes the top spot at the moment, so here are some examples of these new colors. We want to know what you think!
Take a closer look at Ryan Guettler’s current setup along with some dialed riding clips mixed in for good measure!

Here’s some news that left us saying “No way!” as soon as we saw it…. It turns out that after nearly 10 years on Colony, Ryan Guettler has decided to leave the team to pursue a spot on the team and be the brand manager for Hyper and Snafu that Matt Bischoff left open a little while back. This is definitely an unexpected move. Here’s some more about the news below…
“I didn’t think I would ever be writing this here but Ryan Guettler is no longer riding for Colony as of today.
He has decided to leave the team, to take a job as a brand manager / pro rider at Hyper & Snafu. I know Ryan has wanted a job within the industry for a while now & I personally wish him all the best in this new chapter in his life.
Ryan has been with Colony since our inception in 2005, he was the first rider I chose as a team rider back then. More importantly, I have known & ridden with Ryan since he was just 7 years old. It has been a fun ride the last 24 years & I am sure there will be many more sessions to come. I do thank you Ryan for your efforts with Colony over the years, it is appreciated. Let the good times roll ahead !! I wish you all the best mate!” – Clint Millar
“What ever I write will not show my appreciation and gratefulness I have for Clint Millar and the family I have over at Colony. All the road trips and good times with the team will be my memories for life. Nothing will change our friendship or the the way I think of the guys over at Colony but this next step is a must for me to take. My career is sunsetting and I’ve always wanted to learn the business side of things. I’ve been through all the ups and downs with in BMX over the past 20 years of my career, my knowledge will help Hyper and Snafu. This would not have been an option with out Clint guiding me along the way. He is a best friend and the god of front brakes, I wish Clint nothing but the best. To all the riders at Colony keep it rubber side down and I’ll miss you guys.” – Ryan Guettler
Check out highlights from this years Hyper Compound Training Camp from last month! Tons of real good riding went down from guys like Scotty Cranmer down through the young guns!
“This is a recap of all the days of the Hyper Compound Training Camp that was held in July. We had a lot of kids from all around come out to support Brett Maddog Banasiwicz in his endeavor to recovery. We had Scotty Cranmer, Cory Berglar and Vinny Mannino there to help with instruction to teach the kids any tricks they were struggling on. They also had time to throw down as well. Thanks to the sponsors, Hyper Bikes, Snafu, Maxxis, Deft Family, EVL, Fatal Clothing, Body Armor, and Vans. The song is: Paper Planes by J$EAN” – Brandon Bermudez
