Insight: Nowear – Candybars

Nowear BMX Candybars

In a world where we see a lot of very similar products, it’s always good to see something different and non-traditional. A few weeks back, when the Nowear crew rolled through Bluff Valley for this years Bluff Valley Jam, I noticed something interesting on Karl Hinkley’s bike, along with a few of his team riders…. Bars that I hadn’t seen before. What are these guys all about? Let’s find out…

Nick Bullen Interview

Nick Bullen BMX

There has been a ton of amazing riders that have been coming out of Michigan lately! If you haven’t taken notice, the scene over there has been on absolute fire lately and all the proof you need is in the “The Michigan Video”. One guy who we’ve been seeing more and more of over the past year or two is Nick Bullen. Nick has always been good, but it seems like he’s always flown pretty under the radar… Until recently.
With the ender part in the video and a recent bump up to the Subrosa pro team, Nick is finally getting that well deserved shine time he’s been working his ass off for.
We figured with the recent bump up and everything he has going on, it was more than a perfect time to get to know him a little better. Let’s see what he had to say…

Profile Racing – Escape Park Tour #2

Part 2 of the Profile Racing Escape Park Tour is now online for us to enjoy! Check out what went down on the last day where they hit a few parks and cruised with the locals! Tons of goodness in this! After you watch that, go watch part one right here!

This was the last day of the #ProfileEscapeParkTour.
We woke up early after a 3-1/2 hour drive from South Florida, fitting in a session with the East Coast locals before a giant storm engulfed Florida.
Pretty interesting split mid day: It went from 80 degrees before noon, to 40 degrees after.
Check the clothing change.
Typical Florida.
“This is the second of two edits I’ve put together celebrating a five day road trip I hated to see come to an end. And, one of several edits to come for this year as we travel, capturing whatever random events/riding go down.
Looking forward to more of this over the course of the year.
To gallons of coffee, late night drives, shitty gas station food, delirious conversations …to bmx and the friendships involved.
Thanks to the Profile crew: Mulville, Castelluzzo, and Degroot for making this a dialed five days total.
Thanks to all of our friends for meeting us along the way for some dialed sessions.
Clips from Rick Price, Jackson Whaley, Nick Smarjesse, Shaun Gomez, Adam LZ, Josh and Jake Haygood, Alex Tate, and the legend: Mike McQueen.
Looking forward to next year.

Subrosa – Rich Forne 2014 Edit

I was just thinking the other day it’s been forever since we’ve seen a new video from Rich Forne (that he actually rode, not filmed and edited). Then today Subrosa dropped this new video that’s loaded with GOLD! Hit that play button!

International man of mystery Rich Forne is back in front of the camera, and we couldn’t be more stoked.

The last time we heard from Rich on the riding side he unleashed one of the top videos of 2012 Between major injuries and countless edits filmed and edited by Rich, he has been collecting footage for his first official Subrosa edit and it is killer!

Rich’s style combines full speed, and a creative vision that could be described as controlled chaos. If he sees something he wants to do, he makes it happen, and does it untill it looks and feels a way that he is happy with. To me Rich’s riding is pure BMX. – Ryan Sher/ Subrosa

Subrosa is proud to present Rich Forne – Subrosa Brand 2014

Filmed by Rich, his brother Fez, and a list of others. Rich and Fez also had the tough task of putting it all together, and once again nailed it.

Jake and Theo Riddle – 4-Year Old BMX Twins

Wow… This is pretty amazing. Check out little Jake and Theo Riddle putting their Cult CC12 bikes to work in their very first video! At 4 years old, I think these guys are the youngest rippers we have seen on BMX bikes. Check them out cruising a handful of parks down in New Zealand and even hitting up Gorge Road! You can tell they already have a lot of bike control and if they keep it up, they should be amazingly good when they’re older.
