A few Fridays back a handful of our team riders were lucky enough to be able to ride an outdoor section of the National Museum of Australia for a media launch covered by WIN news and the Canberra Times for an upcoming screening of BMX Bandits movie.
This was an extremely rare opportunity and one we will probably not have again for a very long time to come. I got pulled up by 3 security guards just walking in the front door and I was supposed to be there.
The hits were a little on the slim side, but the boys found some stuff to get Rad on none the less. Mikey Ross did a Superman down the “Devils Pebbles” gap which was badass as hell considering the lack of pop the take off had.
B dog shot a few pics you can check out below, While the pickings were slim they had a hard time kicking us out. I guess when you are riding with a bunch of good mates a good time can be made out of anything.

Trail building, shop owning, father of three Rhys Williams AKA Rhysty, just built up an all new bike. In the past 5 years, Rhysty has run nothing but custom frames so it was pretty interesting that he switched back to a buy-able production frame. His choice? A CCR, of course. Rhysty also made the choice to scale back to a 21.25″. The last couple of frames Rhys has run have had a 21.5″ top tube, but the CCR’s geometry is more accommodating with a slightly longer back end & ever so slightly steeper head tube.

Thanks to B-Dog for the epic shots!
The humble shovel. This shed creeping gardening tool is probably what started a lot of our BMX dream & for a lot of us, allows us to live the dream everyday via building trails. It’s been in the works for a long while, but we finally are able to say that we now stock Cyclone brand square mouth shovels. In our experience, this is the best shovel we’ve come across for building trails, at least in Australia & that’s still around.
We’re pretty pumped about being able to offer something so epic & fundamental to BMX. They’ll be online soon, but for now if you’re chasing them, they’re $65 & you can call the store on AUS(02)62885186.

Will Gunn just landed a spot on the Demolition World team & of course we just got back from a trip to the beach, so what better than to get one of the most classic ‘dude standing with bike’ photos we’ve ever shot & make a bike check out of it? Will is currently running one of the most interesting frames since Bentley’s rusty Dirtbike. Will’s frame looks like it’s been dragged across the ocean floor!
