Ryan Howard coming through with another full-length blast from the past. This time around he uploaded the “From Nothing” video Doug Horton produced about 10 years ago featuring the Cincinnati crew! This video features John Dixon, Doug Horton, Jeremiah Smith, Travis Kiesow, Josh Suhre, Tony Neyer and many, many more. This one has a super good Midwest BMX vibe with that mid school era riding that we’re sure a bunch of you older guys are going to love. Hit play and take it all in! It has been a long time since we’ve seen this one.
Well, we didn’t have to wait long for that! This morning we posted up 3D Printed Prosthetics Enable a Kid To Ride BMX – Part 1, now we have part two where we get a look at the design that Peter Binkley cooked up and we get a look at how it works for the kid! Although he won’t be taking his new “hand” off, it does look like it accomplished the goal! Take a look!
“How do you make a 3D-printed prosthetic work for BMX biking?
That’s the question Peter Binkley and Jeremiah Smith address in part 2 of our Bicycle Lessons video series. They collaborate to adapt Binkley’s revolutionary prosthetic hand design to fit the needs of the sport and fabricate the prosthesis. Then the moment of truth comes” – Complex
We’ve been seeing 3D printing becoming more and more popular as it becomes easier and more affordable to work with. We’ve been waiting to see how it can come into play with BMX as far as parts go, but we never considered this one. Complex just released the first part of a video series they’re doing documenting how Peter Binkley is utilizing 3D printing to give a young rider that was born without a hand, the opportunity to ride BMX! This first part is a little more of a background on the project and how it all came to be and how Jeremiah Smith got involved. We’re definitely excited to see part two!
UPDATE: You can now watch 3D Printed Prosthetics Enable A Kid To Ride BMX – Part 2!
“What if riding a bicycle wasn’t so easy?
Jimmy Wilson loves BMX biking more than anything, but has had trouble partaking in the sport himself due to the absence of fingers on his left hand. When Peter Binkley of Enabling the Future first met Jimmy he was determined to help. He designed a prosthetic hand for Jimmy by leveraging a global community of open source prosthetic designers and cutting edge technology from Intel. But before he can complete the design he meets up with pro BMXer Jeremiah Smith to get some advice on how to adapt his designs to the needs of the sport.” – Complex
The sponsor news is starting to flow! With the start of the new year just around the corner, contracts are expiring and the shake ups are happening! Jeremiah Smith announced VIA Instagram that he will no longer be riding for GT Bicycles in 2016. We’re not sure how things went down, but he leads us to believe there must have been a little tension since he was “proud” to announce the news.
Welp, who’s next? Any guesses? Only time will tell before we hear about another rider either joining a team or no longer riding for a team.
A little while back, the GT Bicycles crew consisting of Rob Wise, Brian Kachinsky, Jeremiah Smith, and Jason Phelan made a trip to Kansas City, Missouri of all places to see just what the city had to offer for spots. Based off this banger of a BMX video, it’s clear these guys had no problems finding shit to ride! Take a look!
“GT’s Rob Wise, Brian Kachinsky, Jeremiah Smith, and Jason Phelan wage a war on the streets of Kansas City, MO. People have been sleeping on KC all this time but I have a feeling that’s about to change. From the craziest damn spot you’ve ever seen, to a plethora of rail set-ups beyond your wildest dreams, KC is stacked. The squad of Rob Wise, Brian Kachinsky, Jason Phelan, and Jeremiah Smith spent ten days dodging rain and putting themselves through hell… The result? A collection of clips that will surely be talked about and even stand the test of time. This is “Bleeding Kansas” GT in KC. Get your hands on a copy RideBMX Magazine issue 210 for the inside story and all of the pictorial goodness.” – Ride BMX
Ride BMX dropped this banger of a video from GT Bicycles featuring Rob Wise, Jeremiah Smith and Brian Kachinsky crushing it on the streets of Los Angeles! With a line up like this, you know there’s a lot of gold to see in this BMX video!
“GT has been making some moves as of late. First they brought on product guru Ben Ward as BMX brand manager, then they added Brian Kachinsky to the equation, turning the team into a stacked trifecta of Kachinsky, Jeremiah Smith, and Rob Wise. The dudes recently convened in LA for a week, effectively kicking off the beginning of this new era for GT.

Here’s a rad one featuring GT‘s Brian Kachinsky, Rob Wise, Jeremiah Smith and team manager, Ben Ward, getting some time in on a plaza out in California! With a crew like this, you know good things happened! Check it!
“GT has been making some serious moves as of late… One of these moves was a recent trip to California where the dudes took full advantage of warmer climates and destroyed a barrage of street setups put in front of them. This 9 Trick Fix from a local plaza is just an appetizer for the main entree street feature dropping later this week.” – Ride BMX
