Frame: Cult Juvenile Brakeless
Why Brakeless? – Jensen’s Dad explains: In the beginning I spent more time unwinding his handlebars then he got to ride. Also he wasn’t really able to pull it to make any difference in his speed. At this point he been with out them for a year. Due to the fact that most of the places we ride and his abilities I haven’t seen the need to put them back on. Lastly if he had them he would use them!!

Lukas and Nathan Halahan: 2016 FBM BMX Bike Checks

Halahan 2016 FBM BMX Bike Checks
The first words that come to mind when thinking of the Halahan brothers riding are speed, style, flow and fun. All 4 of these words are hard to convey in photos and even in video edits. These two dudes kill it on their bikes and if you hang around them a little, it doesn’t take long to notice they’re having a blast doing it. Their bikes are completely dialed for both sizing and their riding style. Check them out carefully and learn.

Every year in March, Lukas and Nathan put on a jam at the Wheelmill in Pittsburg – yes they are already giving back to the sport. The jam is fun, has something for everyone and is definately the best place to see the most grom talent at one event. This year the Next Generation Jam is planned for March 19. Hope to see you there.

Favourite type of riding? My favourite type of riding has to be park riding although I will have a blast at the dirt jumps when I get the chance.
Best spot to ride? I love to ride different parks, meet new riders and generally progress. My favourite park has to my local skate park Rampworx in Liverpool as it has everything you need to learn and progress. I am fortunate as I sometimes get to ride with the Pro riders, Harry Main and Anton McGuirk to mention a few who help and encourage me. I also have lots of BMX and scooter rider friends at Rampworx and we just meet up, ride and have fun.
Favourite trick? My favourite trick has to be the bar spin – I love to bar spin! The next tricks on my list to master are the double whip and the flair.
You recently switched from an 18 inch bike to a 20 inch bike. Was it a hard transition? I found the switch a lot easier than I thought it would be. Some tricks I mastered straight away, some were a little more difficult but I’m starting to feel more comfortable and confident the more I ride.
What made you decide to make the switch to a 20″? A few of the riders at my local park have commented over the past 6 months that I needed to upgrade to a bigger bike but I still felt comfortable on the 18 inch. It’s only over the summer holidays that my legs felt a bit restricted so decided it was time to make the switch.

Jayden Mucha blasts his backyard vert wall.Jayden Mucha is 13 years old and riding at an insane level. Check out his BMX Groms edit, the edit he just dropped and his how-to front flip. We caught up with him, shot some pictures of his current setup and his gnarly riding skills.

Any tips on bike sizing? Before jumping to the next frame size, incremental changes can be made by increasing stem length, going from a front load stem to top load stem and/or by increasing bar size. These changes will increase your “riding box” (the area for your body, while on your bike).

Colony BMX – Josh Dove Video Bike Check

Josh Dove showcases Colony’s 18 inch line with flips, bars, grinds, and freecoaster action. The 18″ Sweetooth frame in chrome is RAD!

Colony – With the emerging growth in the number of smaller rippers out there in the BMX world, we saw a gap in what was available for them to buy & ride.
The introduction of our 18″ product line, gives these little shredders access to the same high end parts that the 20″ world enjoys.
Our 18″ version Sweet Tooth frames, Dagger forks, Sweet Tooth forks, Pintour wheels & soon to be released 22’s cranks in 165mm makes up a full high end 18″ product line. Our own Josh Dove show’s in this video exactly what these little bikes are capable of doing. Available now at all Colony dealers worldwide.”
