The world of production frame building isn’t limited to road, cross, or MTB frames. There are a handful of individuals who still believe in the domestically-produced, handmade BMX frame. Mike Laird is one of those people. Check out this profile on the BMX pro, welder, machinist, father, and metal head owner of Laird Frame.
Sandy Carson is a living legend in the world of BMX photography and over the years, his interest in other forms of cycling has evolved from his obsession with 20″ wheels. Check out this interview with Fairdale highlighting his life on the bike.
This blew my mind…
Benedict from For the Love of Mud recently was in Austin for an extended period of time with work. While here, he shot video of a few local female BMX rippers and just released a short teaser for the project. I can’t wait to see the full cut!
FBM‘s latest Characters with Bikes features their welder and resident shredder John Corts. Can your framebuilder ride like that? Nice one guys!
There aren’t many BMX videos featured here on the site, but then again, there aren’t a lot of BMX videos shot as beautifully as this one.
“Précisions is an ongoing short film series presented via Defgrip. This series features creativity, expression and most importantly précisions within BMX. Second to feature is Josh Bedford with an eye for spots and a less is more attitude. Josh’s riding speaks for itself, incorporating speed and power combined with his natural creative outlook. All of which is done with a classic captivating Yorkshire personality. Whilst filming Josh sustained a severe injury, cutting the release short. In his own words “if you roll the dice..”.
Please wish Josh a rapid recovery and enjoy what we got down beforehand.”
Very nice, Defgrip.
Things aren’t always what they seem, are they?
Fairdale‘s Taj Mihelich worked on an incredible animation telling Mat Hoffman’s story from his slightly illegal ACL surgery in 1999. This is a must see video!
