It’s that time of the week again for another round of Video Reap! The Daily Section was loaded up with a ton of damn good videos this past week. I’ve gone through and pulled out 17 of the best BMX videos featuring the likes of Alex Kennedy, Edwin DeLaRosa, George Boyd, Kyle Baldock, Logan Martin, Michal Smelko, Anthony Perrin, Chris Bracamonte, Javi Castilla, Dean Anderson, Jon “Gremlin” Betchtold and many, many more. Let’s get into this since there’s well over 2 hours of videos to watch! Check it!
For the 50th edition of products, I’ve decided to change things up a bit. The roman numerals we usually do were getting a little ridiculous, so from now on we’ll just run with the numbers. Otherwise, we’re keeping this party going with 5 fresh products for you to take a closer look at. This week we’ve got the Pom Pom sprocket from Deluxe, the Freedom bars from Freed, the Scorpio fork from Wethepeople, Cult‘s new Signature snapbacks and the Flagship frame from Superstar! Let’s see what Volume 50 has to offer…
There’s a lot of up and coming riders out there that know how to kill it on a bike. There’s not a ton of riders out there that know how to throw down at the trails, on the streets or at the skatepark or even a race track if they had to. Justin Spriet is a young gun for Fit Bike Co. that has proven he’s definitely capable of taking care of business on whatever you put in front of him for a session. We figured it would be cool to catch up with him to check out his current setup and to find out a little bit more about him. Check out this dialed unit in this fresh bike check!

Queenstown, New Zealand: FULLY ALIVE! That would be the way I would describe that wonderland. Toss the Gorge Road Dirt Park into the mix, and it almost seems too good to be true. The Gorge is a work of art; and showing no lack of effort, the locals put in some SERIOUS shovel time. They were determined to have the place “Tire Trackless” for the Roast Event.
This is a gallery of images from a few sessions on the days leading up to the Roast. It was a chore to put the bike down and shoot photos because the riding vibe was so rad. With riders from all over the world at one hell of a spot, how could it not be?
Check out all 14 photos in this new photogallery!
There has always been something intriguing to me about getting some behind the scenes details on a photo. I don’t know what it is about it but I just get stoked on seeing exactly how someone shot a specific photo and get a little insight into the process. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that every photographer shoots a little differently, which in turn makes each story unique in its own way. I can remember studying photos in magazines and borderline obsessing about the way that they were shot and honestly over the years not much has changed. I still find myself getting lost in photos to this day with the same level of curiosity that I had when I first started shooting. With that said, enjoy round five of WYDK.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been seeing more and more of a new Arizona based brand that’s getting the ball rolling with a line up of some quality American made products and a team loaded with up and coming shredders. Obviously, like everyone else, we were asking ourselves “Where the hell did Freed Bikes come from and what are they all about?”… So we got ahold of them to find out their story. Turns out that this new brand is already making some real solid moves forward with a strong belief in quality over quantity and the goal to help BMX grow over take it for all its got. Let’s take a closer look at this brand in this new On The Horizon!
Over the years there have been plenty of conversations about how DVD’s are dead and how videos coming out are the same thing as what’s coming out online everyday, just a little longer. Which, yeah, you could make some valid points that it is true. But I think this kind of comes full circle with the “print is dead” thing. It’s not that it’s dying out and won’t exist. It’s a product and for people to want to buy it, it needs to be something that doesn’t suck. You can’t keep repeating things forever and if you haven’t noticed, the model for how magazines are distributed has changed up with the times, and I think the same can be said with full-length videos.
I recently got my hands on a copy of the new Vinyl BMX “LP” DVD that I think is a prime example of what I’m trying to say in this intro. So let’s get into this review already…
Another week just went blazing by. I’m not exactly sure how it happens so fast, but we’re back at Sunday and it’s time to take a look back at some of the best BMX videos that dropped in the Daily Section.
