On Monday May 1s the folks over at Ride BMX and Chris Rye from Props will be releasing a video project Taj Mihelich // Life after pro. In honor of this Ride posted up some classic photos from the pages of ride.
I remember filming with Ben for this video and he was on it. He was riding at such a high level at this time that almost everything we filmed he did first or second try. Ben has always had an awesome way he goes at coming up with a new combo or on how he approaches a spot. Ben worked hard for the last spot in the video and i think it definitely shows especially with the bangers he throws down.
Also im pretty sure this section has the first smith to barspin ever done.
Damn. This vide the guys over at Ride just posted made me want to go ride! Ratty Maty & Gary young definetly put in work.Some epic moves. Everyone at the session looks like they are having fun and killing it! Give this a watch!
Your favorite flatlander’s favorite flatander, Gabe Kadmiri, bestows us with a brief glimpse of how challenging it is to create something new within (arguably) BMX’s most difficult discipline. Do yourself a favor today, and check out The Time Trip, a whopper to manual to time-machine on the pedal.
Filmed by my favorite Bavarian flatlander and fakie manual world record holder: Bene Phreim.
A few months ago while I was browsing through instagram I noticed an interesting start of a frame on a jig that looked kind of familiar. I clicked on the page to see that someone was creating a modern version of Jay Miron’s signature Hoffman frame that never made it past being a sample before Jay left for Schwinn. I remember the buzz being around this frame at the time since Jay was literally destroying any obstacle you put in front of him. It didn’t hurt that it had a built in bottle opener too. The frame was a nice mix between the freestyle frames of the 80’s and where they were starting to go towards the late 90’s.
I have been loving all the retro styled modern frames coming out lately and this one is no exception! I reached out to Patrick Banks who built the bike to talk to him about the project and other things he has worked on! CHECK OUT MORE »
This is not an in-depth interview with Nick Ferreira. If you want to know more about Nick’s background, there are several excellent interviews with him online already. My favorite ones are here, here, and here. Today I wanted to briefly talk with Nick about his latest endeavor – Challenger BMX Magazine.
