It’s pretty crazy to think about how much BMX has grown over the years and how many places around the world that have scenes that are growing incredibly fast with new talented riders popping up left and right. At the same time, there are still places in this world that BMX just isn’t a thing to them. It might come as a shock to you, but a country with an estimated population of 1.27 billion doesn’t have much for BMX going on.
The other day we had a video sent in by Shubham Nevi and Prateek Bhasin with riding from some of their local spots and it got us thinking about the country and how we really haven’t seen much from the place in the past. We got thinking it would be a good idea to talk to these guys about the place and their movement to bring BMX to the country. Let’s see what they had to say!

The other day, our friend Kris Kim hit us up talking about how the Strangeways Vol. 2 DVD didn’t quite get the attention he felt it deserved. After picking up a copy and watching it over and over again, he decided maybe it would be cool to put together a review so more people can find out just how good the video really is. We gave Kris the chance to put his thoughts together and he came through with a real solid review that I think might make you think twice about this video from the U.K that you might not have seen yet. Let’s see what he had to say…

I don’t know if it’s obvious or not, but I’m a super big Darryl Tocco fan. Everything about his riding gets me so stoked from the beyond perfect barspins to the smoothest hurricanes in the business — It’s all so good. We recently caught wind that he would have a new signature colorway coming out for the Kink Titan frame and figured he would be building up a new bike soon. So we hit him up and sure enough he just built up a fresh ride not too long ago that was looking too damn good not to do a bike check. Let’s take a closer look at this bike, find out what else is new with the guy and then watch his brand new Kink edit!
