Working on a BMX bike is one of those things that regardless if you like it or not, it’s completely necessary to either keep you riding your best or to keep the parts on your bike from failing prematurely due to improper maintenance, installation or upkeep. Working on a bike can be easy if you have the right tools, or complete hell if you don’t. Stripped out bolts, a messed up chain, blown out bearings or just the fear that your bike is going to blow out at any point in time sucks, but having the right tools for the job can prevent a lot of headaches and can save a lot of time in the process.
We figured it would be a good idea, especially with the holidays coming up, to put together a list of the tools worth having to make sure you can get your bike dialed in and keep it that way! Most of this will be pretty obvious, but it doesn’t hurt to put it all together. Let’s do this…
When the title includes Mike Vockenson’s name and the words”absolute madness”, you know things are going to get nuts. Check out this banger of a video for The Shadow Conspiracy that you cannot miss! I promise you will say “holy shit” at least 5 times.
“Australian Shadow rider Mike Vockenson is one of a kind. Few people would look at the set ups he does let alone think, “Yeah, I got that.” See what kind of absolute madness Mike was able to put together before going down on an over ice, breaking his shoulder, knocking himself out, and putting an end to filming!

Get on over to The Shadow Conspiracy website to check out a bike check with Eric Bahlman and his dialed freecoasting machine that he’s running these days! Damn does that bike look good or what!?
We don’t see a ton of changes with the product line from Profile Racing because they’re pretty consistent on sticking with what works! But, every few months, we do get to see a new limited edition colorway from them that is always ends up real good. This time around, they have released a very limited run of these Zach Rogers inspired matte Desert Camo Mini and Elite hubs, Push stems and Spline Drive and Galaxy sprockets that are are available now! We figured with only 50 sets of hubs total and 10 of each of the stems and sprockets available, these are going to go quick so we should take a look before they’re all gone, right? Let’s check this out!
Here we go! 130 rounds of Products: deep and going strong. It’s that time of the week again where we take a closer look at a few dialed BMX parts you might just be on the hunt for! This week we’re going to take a look at the new Matte Desert Camo colorway for the Profile Racing Mini hubs, Trey Jones’ signature Killer cranks from The Shadow Conspiracy, the Drift plastic pegs from Kink, the River Waldren signature Hippie Riv t-shirt from Freed Bikes, then we’ll wrap things up with the Cult X Vans grips! Ready? Let’s do this!
There’s no denying that we have seen a lot of collaborations between brands over the years and they have all lead to some pretty cool final products. A few years back, Cult teamed up with Vans for a collaboration that produced two styles of shoes that yielded some amazing results — I still rock ‘em even — and they have finally teamed back up for a second go! The shoes themselves have been available for a few weeks now, but we figured it would be a good time to take a closer look their latest collaboration with the classic Chukka Midtop and Era Pro shoes that they used for this time around! Let’s do this!
Although we’ve seen a bunch of videos from the Texas Toast Jam already, there’s still a lot of unseen footage from practice that we’re seeing pop up! Check out this one Subrosa released that has a bunch of clips you haven’t seen yet!
