Came across these photos when looking through my photo library. Sure is a long time ago that I made the first prototypes of the Eject hub. The first one was finished on the 25th of September in 2005 and I had the first wheel built up a few days later. Sweet!
‘Keyko’ section from SuperBmx’s ‘Live for Today’.
I haven’t done a bike check of my personal ride in quite a while, and since I recently built up a new bike I felt it was time to post it here. I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Here’s part 2 of Tempered bikes’ coast to coast tour edit. More good stuff in this one, including a pretty gnarly crash.

Marnold is a funny dude. He’s also a pretty damn talented bike rider and a non stop talking machine who rides for Colony. I just spotted this Colony edit that surfaced on Facebook. Watch it, it deserves a lot of views.
Eduards has got a video up on the Rode US site, it’s of him shredding an empty, yet to be finished, skatepark. He’s banging out clips full of his usual style.
Ok, so I use a Mac and rarely check my own blog from a Windows computer. But just now, being bored at work, I decided to login to my admin page to do a few things and I noticed that the theme I use looks totally screwed up in Internet Explorer 8. It’s just plain text and no graphics. Weird.
No one have ever mentioned anything about it being like that, so I’ve been oblivious to it (yeah, I’m no webdesigner, I don’t check my site in all available browsers before launching a new design). Anyways… please, put here in the comments if you can’t view the site properly. Check the thumbnails below… that’s how it should look.
James Wade is a photographer, among other things, from South Australia. Back in May 2009 he started this thing he chose to call “the photobook project”, which is basically a monthly collection of his most recent photos. I’ve enjoyed flipping through the photos every month but for some reason I have not posted about it here yet, which is a little strange.
That’s why I got the idea to pick some highlights from each month and show them here.
Remember the post a couple of weeks back of the trails that were destroyed by freezing winter? Here’s an edit by Mr. Shape a.k.a Fredrik Götesson, who’s one of the dudes maintaining those trails in his parents’ back yard. The clips are from this past summer, before the lip froze and collapsed. The edit fully gives off a great vibe and captures the joy of riding and hanging out with your friends. Enjoy!
Remember that you can see it in HD on the Vimeo page, there you can also download the full quality .mov-file if you like.
Today I decided to post a couple of edits from countries far apart. The two first ones are by my buddies from my native land Sweden from a couple of local and semi-local indoor parks escaping the sub-zero conditions. The third one is from a winter escape back in 2006.
Then there’s also one from local ripper and FP crew member Lachy Swanton closer to my current home, Melbourne, Australia. Here we’re definitely not struggling with freezing conditions at the moment…
Blam! Blam! Edit:
