Ricky Adam’s new photo book is available right now!
Through a well planned trans-atlantic liaison (Aaron Ross), I was able to receive an early copy this book shortly after Simple Session. Too much info I know, I just wanted to use the word “liaison” once in my life. Anyway…. you can bet your ass that if I’m posting this, than I enjoy this book. I’ve been a fan of Ricky Adam’s photos forevernow, so I’m stoked to finally have this to put on my shelf. Thanks Ricky!
You can find this book in the US through S&M or FIT webstores.
Matty Lambert. When I think of Matty, I for some reason think about iPhone apps and technology based awesomeness. I previously described him as “the tallest, most iPhone app savvy English person I know”. Could have been the time he shared his wealth with Harrison and I during a dinner at the Nike POOL thing last year.
I asked Matty about his 5 favorite iPhone apps. Click below to see what he chose.

We teamed up with MacNeil to work on a collaboration grip called the Defgrips. We are super excited on how it turned out… and almost love the packaging more than the actual grips! Big thanks to MacNeil for making this happen and to celebrate their release, I put together this little video. The grips are available at bike shops everywhere, so make sure to pick some up!
Here is the Beats By Dre edit that we worked on in Barcelona (along with a few additional clips from NY and Cali). This was the reason we went out to Barc last month and if you missed it, the whole trip was documented in the first episode of Get Sylvester. I’ve been having a blast filming with Nigel and I’m really stoked on how this edit turned out!
It seems there has been a string of unfortunate events lately, but I guess thats how life goes sometimes.. I can narrow it down to five or so key people who have influenced me to be where I am at today in my professional life, and one of those people is Hillman Curtis. You were such an early influence to me, I will cherish the times I got to work with you. Respect. R.I.P
Rejoice! The Albion is about to be readily available in the USA & Canada. Read the press release below.
The Albion is just about to launch in North America. It will be available in the USA and Canada. This will be the first time anyone there will be able to get a copy of The Albion for free. We are shipping this week from Liverpool to New York City where it will be sent to participating distros and mailorder stores who will be sending out the mag to their BMX shops. We hope to continue to drive kids into BMX shops and selected outlets where scenes are happening rather than convenience stores to pick up The Albion for free. The success and support from the BMX industry worldwide has been a major factor in the decision to take the mag to America. To the brands who will be distro’ing The Albion for us we are of course ever thankful.
This will co-incide with the launch of our NEW WEBSITE where editorial ideas manifest themselves digitally as well as on paper, a first for us and a step into the void where we hope we can reach out to our brothers and sisters globally. All three Editors will be updating the site regularly so keep your eyes peeled for exclusive content and sign up for our newsletter. For those riders who have subbed already, we will be addressing the issue shortly and will post on our FB as soon as the finer details have been worked through. Thanks for your support. see you all soon.
Support your bike shop and buy stuff that lasts, fix stuff that breaks and drink water, it’s free.
The first episode of Nigel Sylvester’s new series ‘Get Sylvester’ just went live! I have been working with Nigel on this project for a bit and am super excited for everyone to get to check it out. This is just the first episode of 10 that we will be working on over the next few months and we have a lot of awesome stuff in the works.
To kick the series off, the first episode documents a trip we took to Barcelona to film an edit for Beats by Dre (that will be dropping on Thursday). Check out the first episode above, make sure to subscribe to the series on Nigel’s youtube page, and if you missed any of the teasers check out all three of them after the jump!
