United finally made Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla’s video embedable. You know you want to see this one again…
Random thought. I once sent Mike an interview and he said they were the best questions he had ever been asked and didn’t do it… Maybe I should chase him down and try again.
The Unit BMX team hit the road earlier this year, travelling don the East coast of Australia to Cam White’s Hillside Dirtjam. Ryan Guettler, Dane Searls, Jed Mildon, Cam Pianta, Nick Richardson and David Girsch were joined by special guests Anthony Napolitan and Colin Mackay.
We were there to film all the fun times, a few highlights include the countless hours of didgeridoo and band practice on the road, Richo’s appearance on Bondi Rescue, Girsch sessioning some street spots in Sydney, and the resulting boxing matches from spending all week together in a campervan.

Here’s some fresh footage of Matias Lasgoity doing it for United. Some street goodness for ya.
No, not a collaboration with the site. United teamed up with the actual brand Bicycle Union over in the U.K for this collaboration frame. There are no details on the specs, but it will be available in this pearl black and Rushmore red. The frame will be available in the U.K soon and worldwide shortly after that. Looks real good.
“So a few of you have been asking about frame specs, here they are-we went for classic geometry here, heres the brass!
