The Back Bone Video

The Back Bone Video has officially been out for a week as of right now. Thanks to everyone who has ordered, it’s by far exceeded our expectations! We are truly proud to have been able to release a video that we feel captures the heart and essence of Back Bone BMX. We could write an essay on how stoked we are, but you’ll probably get that when you read the credits of the vid! But we appreciate all the support from our friends and customers.

We are selling and sending them internationally via our site, but we have some going out for sale via CanYouDigIt BMX in the USA, as well as Banos Distro in France and we are finalizing a distributor in the UK. So if you live across the pond it might be easier to keep an eye out over there.

One hour of BMX entertainment.. The Back Bone Video

We are happily accepting first timers to BMX, as these school holiday coaching sessions cater to beginners.

There will only be 15 spaces in each BMX session.

ACT Jam 2015: Part One

Sometimes I feel like the ACT Jam (pronounced act jam, not aye see tea jam) is so overwhelming and so much work, that after it happens, I tend to forget that maybe other people want to read about it or see what went down. It’s not that we don’t want to show other people, it’s just that it was so fun that we have just been living in the memory.

With the age of social media and being able to access information at the swipe of a thumb, it’s kind of refreshing to have the ACT Jam live as ‘just’ a memory in peoples minds who made the journey. Almost like that one party that you missed, all you get is your friends talking about how good it was. No matter how many times you hear about what happened, you just never went to the party.

Luckily though, the party that is ACT Jam happens every year for as long as we can help it and it’s in part to the sponsors that hook us up with dollars and products to give to riders who shred. They are listed below, take time to remember that these guys support Australian BMX and that is an important thing. So if you missed it, you’ve got 2016 to look forward to.

Thanks to Crispy Stream for prompting this post with their awesome feature on the ACT Jam; it is well overdue!

Lucas Comino the OG Drainkid hooked us up with some great photos that represent a small portion of the ACT Jam for 2015, remember to get mark ACT Jam 2016 in your calendar, next year it’s back to Anzac long weekend (23-25 April) & will be bigger than ever!
