Two from Steven Hamilton today! Earlier today we posted his new Winter 2017 Video for Animal Bikes, now we have a brand new Bike Check from Animal to go with it! Steven is running a Standard Bykes frame decked out with parts from Animal Bikes, Profile Racing and more. He’s still running a custom laid back Pivotal post that really adds a lot of style to this bike that has been found on his bikes since 2012. This BMX bike definitely changes up the mix of things from what you typically see these days. You can check out a full parts list and a ton of photos on the Animal website — Steven Hamilton Bike Check
It’s always a good day when a new Steven Hamilton video surfaces online. Here’s his latest for Animal Bikes that was filmed over the course of the winter during street and skatepark sessions, along with a few skate clips for good measure, too. Great spots and amazing riding… You can’t go wrong with this video!
“Steven Hamilton just cooked up a new self-filmed edit for Animal Bikes! Steven has racked up some serious miles in the game over the years, and he’s still going full force! Click play for a satisfying array of jibs and more classic moves from one of the best to ever do it.” – Ride BMX
Here’s a gem for all of you Mid School guys out there. Here’s footage that was supposed to go toward the sequel of the “A Day Late and A Dollar short” video that ultimately never made it into a DVD and, thankfully, found its way online many years after the project had lost its traction. The back story is a bit of a bummer, but the silver lining is that there is still some really good footage that did end up seeing the light of the day! Check out what Steven Hamilton and the rest of the crew cooked up!
“It was fifteen years ago when Andy Marshall’s ‘A Day Late and a Dollar Short’ introduced some new progressive Central Ohio street riders to the world of BMX.
For some, the video marked the end. A scene and a crew, a time period captured in a video. For others, the video marked the beginning. And for others, it was somewhere in-between.
This footage was kind of when we all started going our separate ways. Looking back, it’s cool to see all of our riding really maturing
during this period. You can see that higher level of confidence here.
In a way, it’s a shame this video never happened. What if the trips had never ended, and we all kept riding together?
But life gets in the way sometimes. Though a lot of this footage ended up in other places, it’s nice to see it together and wonder, what if?” – Steven Hamilton
Filmed and edited by Andy Marshall

It’s always a good day when some fresh Steven Hamilton footage surfaces online. Here’s the latest batch of footage filled with BMX and skate clips on a ton of awesome spots, many of which most of us would probably never spot or think to ride. Enjoy!
“These days it feels like almost anyone can become a BMX ‘PRO’, but to leave an influential mark on BMX is a whole other cosmos that I can’t even comprehend. Steven Hamilton pretty much changed the way a lot of dudes ride today by doing his own thing, trying shit out, pushing the boundaries and all the time having a load of fun. His new edit is pretty much exactly what Steven is about; expect some skating, creativity, some pull up bars, and keep a look out for some of those classic Hamilton spots.
“Pro life passed me by. I’t s all good though, I’m still having fun. I’ve got a job and a family now, so that keeps me busy. I still like to ride, when I get the time. It can be hard finding people to ride with, but you know what? I have a lot of fun on my little solo missions. Main thing I’m happy about is, I’m still progressing. Whether it’s finding new spots or learning new skate tricks, it’s just as exciting as it ever was. No one said it was going to be easy, and at 34, I’m happy to be healthy and still on my bike.” – Steven Hamilton

We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
It looks like Steven Hamilton has been busy working on his latest DVD release “Others” that is starting to hit Empire, Dan’s Comp and a number of other shops now. Above is a promo for the video with over 4 mintues of footage of Steven getting down on his bike and skateboard on street spots and skateparks. If you’re liking this, you will definitely enjoy the full video!
Empire BMX dropped us a line to let us know they have a brand new Steven Hamilton BMX video for all of us to enjoy! Once again, Steven has come through with some incredible riding and skateboarding on so many different and unique spots. Taking his buttery smooth style with plenty of speed to everything from ledges to big gaps, wall rides and more. There’s a healthy number of fufanus and abubacas spread throughout this as well, which is always a good thing, too. Needless to say, you already know this is one BMX video you cannot miss!
When Empire BMX drops us a link to a new BMX video, we know it’s going to be good. When it’s a new Steven Hamilton video, we know we have to hit play the second it loads. Watch as Steven shows you how to ride some spots that a lot of you might roll on past, and just how having a set of brakes can make for some real dialed clips on those spots you might not even try and ride. There’s also an interesting message from Tom at Empire that was in the description, which might open your eyes to the unfortunate side of the circle of BMX that we’ve been seeing lately. Either way, hit play and enjoy. This doesn’t disappoint!
BMX is dead
BMX bicycle sales have reached an all-time low. Large factory teams are a thing of the past. Only a very small number of professional riders remain. Of these riders, only a few receive money from sponsors. A sport that once had five monthly magazines now has one. Contest arenas that were once crowded with spectators are now made up of only the most dedicated riders. Professional freestyle exhibits are nearly non-existent. Many bike shops no longer carry 20” bikes and accessories, because in their eyes, “BMX is dead” – Eddie Roman “Ride On” (1992)
“Sound familiar? Dry your eyes, player. The cycles of BMX are as predictable as they are inevitable. The barren sands of 1992 yielded a harvest of unparalleled creativity and progression, and the reins of BMX were snatched from the stiff hands of bloated corporate corpses from sea to shining sea. Capable and driven individuals and crews like The Condor, Mad Dog, Homeless Bikes, Rick Moliterno, and an elite group of other visionaries fed off of their strong wills, DYI ethos, and love of BMX, deftly laying the path for a generation to come.
To us, Steven is a shining beacon of hope in these turbulent waters, if you will, the hero that BMX needs in this time of confusion and tense unrest. He is a consummate trick technician, with unparalleled spot awareness and a unique style that none can imitate. It is our honor to present this video to you. Enjoy it, and sleep well tonight knowing that while the gravitational pull of change cannot and should not be stopped, Steven will always be standing tall as a bulwark against apathy, despair, and gross style. lol.“
