….Aaron Smith’s Brace stems are re-stocked for your end of Summer and BTS shenanigans. These Demolition stems come in 50mm and 53mm reach. Hit up your local shop or favorite mailorder to get one while we have them in stock.
Last month both our Volume and Demolition brands teamed up with our awesome and very welcoming Japanese distributor, Motocross International, and made the trek to the heart of Japan for all things sushi, ramen and BMX. For Demolition we had TM Joey Cobbs, Dennis Enarson, Tyler Fernengel, Connor Lodes, and Kris Frox; for Volume we had TM Mike Mastroni, Broc Raiford, and Alex Raban; and for us at 180 Dist we had Warehouse Guru and Sushi expert Koichi Shono (insta: @elcosho). It was great to have guys that don’t usually get to travel together due to different sponsors all get together and have a rad opportunity to ride, explore, and visit great BMX shops in Japan that keep their scenes going. It was also awesome for the guys to meet our Japanese shredder Akira Sakata and check out his shop, “Cave” in Yokosuka. Needless to say the trip was amazing and a total blast was had while out there, and we can’t wait for the opportunity to team back up with Motocross to go back again. So, hit play on this edit and watch the madness that was Volume X Demolition in Japan. Thanks again to Motocross International for organizing and taking such good care of all of our guys. Filmed and Edited by Mike Mastroni.
We just got in the new Demolition & Volume summer 2014 tees!! They’re all on our new slim, soft fabric and are available now on the site. Be sure to check out volumebikes.com and demolitionparts.com for the flipbooks with the team guys rockin’ the tees.
Volume bikes’ The Finer Things trailer just dropped and it looks like it’s going to be a f-n insane video. The trailer got us all hyped and couldn’t be more stoked to see the actual DVD now. It’s been in the works for awhile and Mastroni has been putting in a ton of effort on making it his best work to date.
“Coming Fall 2014! THE FINER THINGS is a full length DVD starrting Jason Enns, Broc Raiford, Alex Raban, Drew Hosselton, Lil D, Tate Roskelley, Demarcus Paul, Eric Bahlman, Mike Mastroni, Alex Platt, Zach Krejmas & many more. #WATCHTHEFINERTHINGS Filming, Editing, & Graphics by Mike Mastroni.” – Volume Bikes
Whenever we get samples, we always have them all over our office and like many brands we can’t wait to build up a “sample bike” with all our new goods to show off. Above is the new Broc Raiford Vessel frame built up with some brand spankin’ new Volume/ Demolition bits here and there. Click HERE to view the specs on the dots.
We just got a shipment of our Volume Bikes Staple Stems back in stock. The Staple stem is the same aftermarket stem that comes on the Volume Complete Bikes line-up and is available separately making it a great affordable aftermarket stem. Available in Black and Silver.
We just got samples of the new Volume Bikes grips that we’ve had in the works. We are so stoked on how these came out with the chevron design. We wanted something similar to the classic mushroom design that has been such a comfortable staple in BMX for so long, similar to our sister brand Demolition PartsMissile grips. But, we also wanted a design that would give some lateral resistance to prevent throttle grip that is common with the one directional vertical ribs of mushroom grips. That, combined with modern rubber compounds and technology available today that maximize longevity and right-out-of-the box cushy feel and grip, this is the end result and we are stoked! A couple of other small features you might notice is the slight knurling on the high flange and the low flanges to add a little extra grip. The VLM grip is being run by our Volume Bikes Team as they film for the upcoming #watchthefinerthings full length video, and they’ll be out in about 3 months in both flanged and flange-less options.
Instead of writing my own version of what the new Volume bikes DVD is all about, I figured I’d copy and paste what Mastroni said about the new DVD since he’s making it and organizing it all. Click the top image to go to the video>>
“Well the word is out!! We’ve been steady working on this DVD for the past couple years and we’re really excited to finally announce the project. Here’s an awesome behind the scenes piece and first look at what you can expect from our new DVD “The Finer Things” dropping this fall. Here Myself, Bahlman, Broc, DeMarcus and Krejmas (who also put this piece together) talk about filming for the video, just how dope our team is, who will have full sections, why we chose DVD over web, good times in the van & more! Shouts to Vital for hooking it up with this. Couldn’t be more excited that this is finally coming together! You can expect a trailer within the next few weeks and follow along with us on the daily at #WatchTheFinerThings on Instagram.” – Mike Mastroni via the Volume Bikes site
