“I consider this the ultimate bag for a cycling photographer, city commuter, or all-terrain weekend warrior. It serves the photographer, the commuter and those who want to be adventurous and get lost or party in the woods far away from the civilized world. Most professional photographers own two or three camera bags, but most of us want a bag that can easily hold a basic film or digital SLR, laptop, some personal belongings, and a few accessories. Finding a bag that is comfortable to ride with is the main issue and this bag is meant to solve that problem.”

Hey guys, I have surgery this monday to repair my torn cartilage in my wrist. I’m so excited because this means I’m closer to riding my bike everyday again. It took 2 months from when I first did it to now to finally get some answers and to find out I need Surgery, So I’m super excited to start the healing process. My surgeon is one of the best in Brisbane aswell so it’s that’ a little bit of stress of my back.
I am super grateful for the support Colony has given,I wouldn’t of been able to get this surgery Colony. The medical costs are not cheap.
It’s a boring life with out BMX !! The bright side is I have a lot of free time now to work and Save some $$ for surgery & travel plans – I am planning to fly to France for FISE Contest and England for NASS contest next year.
Also Some great news is we are dropping my new Web Video sometime in september.
Check some pics of what I have been up to over at @alexhiam on instagram.
Another update from the road on Day 3 of the Tea & Biscuits tour. Words and photos by Steve Bancroft…
“Bristol – The Great British Summer was true to form and the whole morning was a wash out again – but we caught a well deserved break come the afternoon when the soggy floor finally dried up enough to take a roll around the infamous Dean Lane. Set on a steep hill and home to many scallies and a diverse collection of graffiti and used syringes “The Deaner” has long been held as one of the weirdest and harshest spots in the south. Kris Fox kicked the quarter pipe in the nuts, Rob Wise dropped a NBD gap, Broc got a kebab-esque shinner, and Mastroni did a stella job of looking just like the piece on the wooden wall.
After that we headed the few hundred yards up the hill to Crucial BMX. Always ones to show the warmest of hospitality Scott and his crew went all out to make the shop stop a good time. Everyone drank a shit load of tea, a Fox did a haul-ass transfer on the sketchily cobbled ramps, a chav did a flair, and a dude with one arm did a 540 with the sleeve of his jumper tied to his bars.
In the evening we headed out in the cider capital of the world to sample the dangerously orange / pissy yellow liquid that is cloudy cider. We hit up the bar on a boat called The Apple – the manager is a Crucial team rider so prices were either dirt cheap or nonexistent – clocking in at 8.5% the favourite of the night was ‘Old Bristolian’ – it’s a wicked potion that’ll put hairs on your chest and strip your stomach lining in half a pint flat. Rob Wise wore a vest out – a feat usually reserved in England only for pikeys and gypsies. And Mastroni was drinking “Spesh” – a feat usually reserved in England for people that wear vests out to clubs. Everyone woke up feeling partially lobotomised and surprisingly no one wet the bed. . .
Goodtimes and not totally washed-out-times at Bristol and Crucial. . . long drive tomorrow for some Cornish pasties and more Tea & Biscuits at Dead Sailor BMX. . .”
