Miles Rogish met up with Connor Lodes, Demarcus Paul, John Stafford and a few other buddies at Clairemont Skatepark to film this here park edit for THECOMEUP. Connor always keeps his riding fresh and interesting this edit has all sorts of Connor creativity running through it. My favorite clip might have to be the fast plant to over tooth, it seemed like he’s been doing that trick for years but this is the first time I’ve ever seen him do it. What’s your favorite clip?

We worked closely with the FBM team, and staff, combining various experience, skillets, preferences, and ideas to come up with the new HARD WAY street frame, here is some info, it features a straight gauge down tube to reduce denting, and it has clearance for 2.4 tires, it also clears up to a 28t sprocket with good chain alignment, andit has ovalized 7/8″ OD chainstays for increased stiffness, tire clearance and sprocket clearance, it’s basically just badass, and functional for today’s street riders…

Top tube Sizes sizes: 20.25, 20.5, 20.75, 21, 21.25
Head Tube angle 75.5
Bottom Brack height 11.875
Standover Height 8.75
seat tube angle angle 71
rear end 13.2 slammed

These new handcrafted frames built at FBM will be available asap, and retail for the same as other FBM Frames!

Product update – Tom Stretton Leopard print Contour Rims

Posted by: Product update – Tom Stretton Leopard print Contour Rims Colony
June 30th, 2014

Tom Stretton looks at most things in riding a little differently to the rest of us. His riding is rather unique & refreshing, he always has something cool to offer no matter what the session is going down on. This will be Tom’s second official signature colour way for our Contour Rims & we are very stoked on how they came out. Using the very tough water transfer hydro graphics process these rims look so good.

You will be able to add a little Tom Stretton flavour to your bike come late August / early September through all good Colony dealers worldwide.

Crandall’s Accounts: The Trip

DSC_0002

It often starts out as just a regular old noun, like you are going somewhere, maybe with some friends, to an exotic destination, some kind of noble adventure. Maybe just to a concert, or a bike race or to the skatepark…

For me it starts out with planning the trip, and getting ready, picking the route, packing, some clothes, peanut butter and jelly, ibuprofen, maybe a helmet and some sort of leisure machine, bike, skateboard, what have you…

Once you hit the road it’s on. Your friends, some good music, the eager anticipation of going someplace exciting, and the time getting there, bullshitting along the way. Stories narrated at four thousand RPM’s going down some highway, while navigating through the opening of an empty bottle to take a piss, after too much coffee in the AM, or too many beers later that day!

While on the road, the trip slowly develops its own personality, becomes another passenger, you learn to care about, you worry about it, you do things to ensure it’s well being.

If you start acting like an asshole, or behave inconsiderately, you might hear, “hey man, get your shit together, you are gonna ruin the trip” or “hey quit fucking around, you’re gonna mess the trip up!” While on the road, you might also hear “man this trip is great..” or “man, if it wasn’t for this trip, I think I was gonna freak out…” The trip has become it’s own entity, it’s alive, and you work to benefit the trip’s sanctity. “Yooo, I got this food for the trip, from the guy behind the counter…” You soon start to do everything for the trip!

Where you are heading, quickly becomes secondary, sometimes it even becomes irrelevant, as the time sharing miles, smiles, stories, beers, sandwiches, floor space and more soon become the primary focus with no one even aware the dynamic has changed.

You get to where you are going, you see old friends, make new ones, and they all exist within some parallel of the trip, and soon you find yourself talking to them about it, like a proud parent sharing a photo of their child hidden inside their wallet.
“oh man, the trip has been amazing, we stopped in this weird town of Rt. 19 and met this crazy dude who showed us this spot….:

The trip has become your friend, maybe even a long lost relative you lost contact with over the years, and reconnected through the dotted lines on the roadway.

When it’s done, you can’t help but start thinking about the next one as you look back, like a loved one passed, and reminisce the trip. “remember that trip? it was so awesome…” or “man I’m so bummed the trip is over, I had such a good time…”

On this last trip I went on, it was all of that and more, old friends, even older ones, new ones, places I’ve never been before, new roads, new cities, old faces, older towns, stories I’ve never heard, and others I’ve helped write. I feel like the more I travel, the more I learn, about the world at large, about my friends, and more and more, about myself, the trip has become a friend, a loved one, a mentor, a child and a parent, a bad influence and a savior.

The trip becomes all…

This first pic is sometime around 94, give or take, Mike Tag and I loading up Stew Johnson's untrusty, shitbox Dodge Colt Vista wagon, heading to some kind of gathering of BMXer's somewhere in the midwest, I'm gonna guess Stew shot this with whatever Camera I had at the time, and we traded jabs about music tastes for the next 400 miles...

Van Homan shot this in the early 2000's in Hastings England, on one of those legendary Seventies tours, in this photo, It shows Van, Chris Arriaga, Myself, Chris Stauffer, Wiz, Gilly and Edwin Delarosa. We are farther way from home, and none of even really lived near each other anyway, but some roadtrip based around kids bikes had us near some old historic castle in the United Kingdom.

This week we drove the bus through parts of Pennsylvania, at one point stopping at Butcher’s The Block Shop on the Southside of Bethlehem. After catching up with some old friends, meeting some genuine Lehigh Valley’s finest, and having a time, we decided to hit the road for our next stop on tour…

Before loading up the Bikes, Butcher AKA Joe Kowalski, after navigating a broken sidewalk, a parking meter and a shit hammered James from A-town trash, switch smithed the bus,it was sick.

Butcher and the crew rule!
