Help Rebuild Bartley Park

Help Rebuild Bartley Park

Totton

Totton Skatepark (AKA Bartley Park) is just down the road from Elephant HQ, it has been a staple session spot for many central southcoast BMX riders over the years and has helped shape the careers of house-hold name superstars such as Jon Root, Alan ‘Stig’ Cole & Grant ‘Chopper’ Fielding. Unfortunatly, the well used but questionably designed fibreglass ramps are now even more soggy and spongy than the day they were made and a group of good natured locals have come together to form a community group and are well on the way to getting a proper new park built. Please take a minute out of your day to take a look at what they have going on – your comments and interaction will help see this thing set in concrete and in tern help nurture future generations of BMX riding ramp technicians, disgruntled punks and diamond earring wearing hot-shot mountain bikers. . .

Tea & Biscuits 2: The Edit

 

Here it is – the video of the highlight of our summer – Tea & Biscuits 2: The Refill. With some bangers held back for Volume’s upcoming full length DVD and with much of the extra curricular activities too sordid for public viewing – this is the best of the rest from our 12 days on the road condensed into a few short minutes. Big thanks to all the shops and parks and people who helped make this such a kickass time. . .

Chris Doyle: Glorious

Yeah sure Doyle runs a Kink frame but the rest of his bike is Demolition Parts through and through. This edit is immense – 4 peg freecoaster street jibbing might be all the rage thesedays but no one who owns a BMX can say this 4 minutes is anything short of glorious. . .

Where In The World Is Kris Fox?

“Dude! Sweet” Kris Fox has been doing big airs and promising to buy people diner all over the world this year – we were lucky enough to have his super laid back and surfed-out company for our Tea & Biscuits tour a few weeks back. Here’s an interview with the “fastest man in freestyle” all about his travels with plenty of T&B photos to illustrate. . . here it is here.

Broc’s Vessel

Broc’s Vessel Frame Causes Global Catastrophe vessel1

Here at Elephant, Russell worries that if we keep bringing in all this metal from other parts of the world the weight shift will cause the Earth to start spinning off axis and we’ll end up breaking free of the Sun’s gravity and get shot off into deep space!!!

I tell him not too worry and that it’s worth the risk as the new 24mm Demolition Rig cranks and Broc’s Vessel look awesome. Check some of the new parts we have here - and check Broc eating a Cornish pasty below. . .

The good folk over at the pond at Demolition HQ have put together an awesome insight interview with Dennis Enarson all about his new signature Rig Line. We’ve had the bars here in the UK for a few months now and they’ve been well popular – unfortunately we’ll have to wait until November until we get our hands on the tyres but we’ll have the 24mm Rig cranks here in less than 2 weeks! You can have a read of the full interview here. . .

Fastest Dude

 

Fastest Dude


Demolition Parts Dennis Enarson was on for the win here at the Vans US Open but a nasty leg gash kept him sidelined for the finals. Gary Young took gold, Chase Hawk won best line and Tom Dugan won highest air. There was no prize for “Fastest Dude” but if there were then Kris Fox would have won it by a country mile. Kris Fox arrives in the UK in 21 days time. . .!!!

Hucker and Tyler in Raditudes Ep. 4

 

Hucker and Tyler in Raditudes Ep. 4

This paragraph has been ripped off in its entirety from here. The fourth episode of “Raditudes” just dropped and this episode is pretty damn funny and has a ton of awesome riding throughout. The funny moments include Tyler falling in love and wanting to marry a cirque du soleil olympian moments before Hucker gets mesmerized by her upside-down lady parts… The other thing worth mentioning is just how crazy Tyler’s trucks to downside whips are! Just watch and see for yourself. Stoked on this series! Good job dudes!
