You can’t go wrong with a fresh Bike Check! The crew over at Profile Racing dropped a fresh bike check with Johnny Delbalso and his current Standard STA500 setup he’s been riding. You can check out more photos and a parts list over on the Profile Racing website now!
It seems like a bunch of riders have been making their way to Tokyo, Japan to see what the place has to offer for spots lately. Johnny Delbalso recently spent some time over there where he ended up filming this dialed new video. Great spots and awesome riding. It looks like this was all self-filmed as well which is always a little tricky to make look this good. Definitely check this out because it’s an awesome watch, and it will likely leave you wanting to book a trip over!
“Spent a little over a week in Tokyo and put together a solo piece of my adventure through the city. Tokyo is massive, and while there are spots galore, you do have to put in a bit of time on the bike to uncover some of the cities offerings. The sights you see along the way are like no other and I’m looking forward to a future adventure to dive deeper into this city.
This is a dedicated solo project from the riding, filming, spot searching, and editing.

Johnny DelBalso drops 30 tricks to celebrate his 30th birthday!
30 is the new 20, or something. To celebrate getting to level 3, Johnny DelBalso went to work filming 30 clips of pure goodness at a bunch of different skateparks. As many of you know, Johnny is an absolute SHREDDER and it’s safe to say all those years of experience are showing because this video kicks a whole lotta ass. Get on that play button and enjoy… You will be glad you did!
“Approaching my 30th birthday, I took the remaining 30 days to film 30 tricks(or tricks on new obstacles) that I have never done. Definetly happy to cross these off that never ending list.
Side note- theres 31 new clips in here, the ender doesnt count since it was 10 minutes into my 30th birthday.
Song- The Replacements “Black Diamond”
Filmed by a vast collection of my friends- Gage Sharp, Mike Arra, Justin Friedl, Cody Duff, Paul Radosevich, Caleb Ramsey, Trevor Watring, Tyler Schneider, Marcus Wolk.

Thank you to all that support me!

The Standard Bykes crew coming through with a fresh video from a team trip they took out to Denver, Colorado to cruise street spots, ditches, trails spots and more, along with cause havoc in the hotel. Hit play to check out a bunch of clips they stacked during their stay!
“Today we are proud to bring you Standard Does Denver, a trip video with Standard’s Billy Woodfin, Zack Gerber, Chase Pauza, Matt Lough, Johnny Del Balso, Sam Stebila, and Riley Guest as they make their way from brand HQ in Davenport, Iowa to the Mile High City Denver, Colorado. BMX and road trips have always gone hand in hand, there’s no better a way to bring a team together, ride, film, and get into random adventures along the way! After you are done watching, read more about the trip from Billy Woodfin below…” – DIG
“We started out the trip by meeting in Davenport at the Standard Byke Co. headquarters. After some last minute preparations and bike rack modifications, we were on the road to Colorado. We piled into my car to meet with the rest of the team that was flying in. Some of us had been on the road together before, but for others this was a new experience. The drive is a long one, so we made due riding goofy setups at Nebraska rest stops while truckers slept in the parking lot. After a long 16 hour drive, we finally made it to Denver ready to shred. I really wanted to put this trip together to show that Standard Byke Co. is still around and kicking ass. We’re a very diverse team of riders but still have that classic Midwest style.
Aside from showing everyone that Standard hasn’t gone anywhere, we really wanted to show that you don’t need tons of money or fancy sponsors to put together a badass trip. We also wanted to emphasize that BMX is much more than just riding bikes. BMX is about the experiences and memories you make with some of your best friends or even complete strangers. Needless to say, we kept to the classic BMX objective, which is being carefree and having a blast.
There are too many great stories to tell in just 1 short article. A lot of wildness went down, and not all of it was just riding. One day Zack Gerber, Chase Pauza and I decided to start walking up the side of a mountain in the continental divide with no shirts and riding shoes, and Chase was in his underwear. We only intended on hiking a couple hundred feet, but weren’t satisfied once we got there. After 2 hours of hiking we found ourselves at about 14,000ft elevation. It was absolutely exhausting and treacherous. We almost died a couple times sinking into deep snow trying to reach the summit. The hike down was harder than the hike up, being delusional from lack of oxygen and exhaustion. We probably should have brought water too. One of the best clips we got on the trip was a result of true teamwork. We got kicked out of an epic spot before Zack had a chance to get a clip he had in mind for quite some time. We all decided to split up to try and distract the security guard elsewhere. The security found me in a parking lot by myself and began asking where the rest of us went. I knew how important this clip was, so I did everything I possibly could to keep the idiot distracted. Asking him everything from “Where is the nearest gas station?” to ” Where do babies come from?”. After around only 10 minutes of distraction, the guys came running back up the parking lot absolutely pumped.
The trip was a complete success and I believe the footage will back that up. Everyone rode hard and no one was seriously injured. We had many uncontrollable laughs, bathed in freezing streams, saw amazing sights and rode some unforgettable setups, which made this adventure a prime example of a good ol BMX roadtrip. #rideforglenn”” – Billy Woodfin

We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here’s a rad BMX video we had sent through featuring Gage Sharp getting down on the streets between 2014 and 2015. Gage brings a lot of nose balance to the mix, along with grinds and an eye for some unique setups. This has a really good vibe, despite it being for BadVibe, haha. Take a look and see just what Gage cooked up for you!
Matt Poteet sent through a new video from a session that went down at the New Philly Skatepark in Philadelphia, Ohio the other night to celebrate Shane Sickles birthday. The session went well into the night, under the lights of the park with guys like Johnny Del Balso, Brant Moore, Gage Sharp, Kevin Stovall, Shane Sickles, Josh Costello and more all throwing down. Check it!
Matt Poteet sent through a video he put together from the jam at the Canal Fulton Skatepark that the Brimstone Bicycles threw to help benefit the place because of the wear and tear it has been getting from flooding. Hit play to check out some highlights giving you a look at what went down. It looks like it was a good day to us!
“Canal fulton skatepark has been plagued by floods in the past destroying most of the wood and ramps but this determined group of local riders want to have their own park to ride so with the help of Brimstone bicycles and Brant Moore. Some new wood was funded and ramps were built and fixed for this jam. It had an awesome turn out because a bunch of Ohio riders showed up and had an awesome time.
If you’re curious what the flooding looked like, here’s a photo to give you some perspective of just how important it was to get the place dialed in with some new ramps.
