Day Three here in Japan and the good times just keep on coming. The day started off at BMX RIO were we got to meet cool locals and at the same time avoid getting run over by the bicycle highway that passed right by the front door. The Japanese take the bicycle commuting seriously and do not slow down just because there are a bunch of Americans in the way, now matter if they are old or young, man or woman, they are coming through hot and are not waiting for you to see them! Whats funny too, is that the whole time they never show any kind of fear or expression when there is a close call, just business as usual hauling ass on the sidewalks of Tokyo. Anyways, after BMX Rio, we headed over to another rad rider owned shop, Flourish BMX. Flourish is owned by Volume and Demolition rider, Akira Sakata, so it was rad to get to meet him and see what his shop and the scene are all about. From that point we headed over to a local skatepark and sessioned with everyone until sundown when we all mode a trek on foot to a local Ramen Restaurant. None of us on the trip had ever eaten authentic Japanese ramen before and it’s safe to say that we are all HOOKED! Be sure to check back soon for our next update from #VLMDemoJapanTour
We have arrived in Japan! Well, we got in about 48 hours ago but it has been a blur of the senses since we arrived. There is just so much to see, touch, smell, and trip out on here in Japan that there is simply never a dull moment and we have no idea what we will get into or find next. Our first day here we got our bikes built, visited an amazing shop, fought jet lag and basically got our bearings in Tokyo. Day two had us riding plenty, first at an outdoor park and then at an indoor park later in the day, both parks were a little slow going but the crew made the best of them and had a blast shredding with the locals and trying to communicate by any means necessary. Be sure to click on the post and check out the gallery from our first 48 in Japan.
Check back in a couple of days to see our next update from #VLMdemoJapanTour
DIG just put up this crazy backwards 60/40 ender from Rob Wise’s Killjoy section that turned a lot of heads. This same pic was in DIG 86 and was shot by none other than Rob Dolecki. Check out the vid again HERE>>
Kris got over his top 3 picks before he left on the Demolition Japan trip, and came up with the above winners. Huge congrats to Blaine, Evan and Zach for wining their new Stylus stems. You can definitely see a bit of Kris Fox in each of his 3 picks. Thanks again to everyone that entered, you all rule!
Rob Wise once again proves why he’s known for being “the machine”. Every video part he’s ever had he does something crazy and original, plus shows what a beast he is. Check out his last Killjoy part to see what I’m talkin’ about now!
Tyler runs you through his Haro SD bike with all Demolition parts. He’s also got some new samples on his bike like the new Dennis Enarson Rig tires and cranks. Check it out to see what’s new and a few crazy park clips too.
Kris Fox’s Style For Stylus contest is getting close to wrapping up tomorrow (midnight) and so we had Kris pick his top 12 picks so far. We’re still accepting last minute entries but these are his favorites so far. Holla if any of these pics are of you.
“This was so hard on me to narrow the entries down to 12! There are way to many amazing entries! I was so stoked! Thank you SO much to everyone who participated and keep having fun riding your bike!” – Kris Fox
We just got the full itinerary for our Japan trip and wanted to give you guys that are going to attend the full schedule. See you soon…
Original post: That’s right, we’re going to Japan! The good people over at Motocross International gave us the invite and so we got together a group of misfits together to hit the open road. Dennis, Connor, Fox, Tyler, and our fearless leader Joey Cobbs will all be in attendance there. We’ll be filming, riding with locals, playing tourist and hitting up shop stops along the way. We’ll be there from 5/16 – 5/24 if any of you out there in cyberspace are around. We can’t wait for this one, we’ve all been dying to get over to Japan for some time now. Follow #vlmdemojapantour on Insta for the updates. Hit the top image to view the full flyer.
To all the moms out there, have a wonderful mothers day!! From the man who loves moms most… Mike Hucker Clark.
Christian has up a new bike check up on the RIDEbmx site and there you can see what Demolition parts the grind-master rides and why. Check it all out here >>
Biz is on fire this week on our blog; first the sick pic of him in the middle of nowhere doing a fakie bars, his amazing new Verde edit, and now this cool bike check that ESPN just put up. Check it out HERE with full descriptions from the man himself on why he runs what he runs.
Josh Perry and Chris Doyle were on hand recently at the DDASC grand opening in North Carolina and landed a couple of cool clips in this edit HERE that Fat Tony made. Josh was also able to shoot a few rad photos with Walker Anderson during the session. Check out the rest of the photos after the jump and be sure to check out the edit after that.
Always a treat to see a new Biz edit! Mastroni and Biz have been working on this one for a bit now and finally dropped it today. Well done on every front and stoked as always to see Biz shred. Filmed by Mike Mastroni, edited by Will Stroud.
On one of Jason Enns’ big spot search excursions, he found this random deserted FMX ramp up in the foothills in Norco. He later dragged (we didn’t know what we were in for) Biz and a couple others out there to shoot pics on the 2′ wide ramp. Biz ended up getting this rad looking fakie bars on it, while Enns got an over-tooth that was featured last week on the Volume bikes site. Click image to go BIG.
There was a time not that long ago where it was nearly impossible to find a skatepark, these days there seems to be a park every small town across America and multiple parks in most cities in the states. San Diego is no different and has skateparks of all shapes and sizes laid out across town. So who better to talk to than all around nice guy and skatepark assassin, Connor Lodes on what 5 parks San Diego parks he loves to ride and what is it about those parks that separates them from the rest.
Kris Fox’s style is timeless, whip out a bike like this over a hip and it will always be something awesome to look at. The #Style4Stylus instagram contest is well underway and we have got a lot of rad entries so for so use the whip as motivation to go out this weekend, get stylish, and submit your entry!
This shot by Cooper Brownlee of Dave was one of the many sick shots he has in his edit. If you haven’t seen Dave’s recent Back Home edit, check it out here >>. Click to go BIG.
Dave Dillewaard is known for riding everything and riding it all good as hell. This Winter (Summer for Dave in Australia) Dave went back home to Australia to ride the amazing parks, wrestle crocks and film this sick edit with Cooper Brownlee.
Figure we haven’t done a product contest in a good while, and figured a Kris Fox Stylus stem giveaway would be perfect. Here’s what you have to do:
Follow @DemolitionParts and @KrisFoxbmx on Instagram
Post a photo or video of yourself getting stylish with the hashtag #style4stylus
Feel free to get creative, Kris will be judging style and not necessarily the trick
Kris’ top 3 picks wins Kris’ Stylus front load stem. Contest ends May 14th. Good luck!

I still don’t understand how Tate is capable of some of the things he does on his bike, I don’t think anyone does. But what we can all understand and agree on is that Tate is a creative genius on the BMX. This photo is a few years old now but is just as amazing as the day it was shot, so do yourself a favor and save this timeless photo as your new desktop wallpaper.
Don’t know too many guys that do this trick but leave it to Enns to be the one to do this crazy over tooth on a wedge style hydraulic bay lift. This ad was gonna go in print but the lack of print mags these days postponed us to get it out quicker online. Oh well, hope you like it as much as we do. Click image to view the full ad and while you’re at it, feel free to get some new Dumbchuck pegs >>
OLP 11 featuring our very own Aaron “Fresh Press” Smith and many others has a chalk-full of good riding and spots. Get watching to see what some of the best of New England.
Connor Lodes just sent over this stylish hop pic that he shot of Christian from the other day, and we just couldn’t resist but to make it into a desktop wallpaper. Click image to view BIG!
Kris Fox’s signature Stylus front load stem is in and looking so clean and stylish. We’re loving the Axes logo he chose for the front plate. The Stylus is very similar to our other stems available in that it’s the perfect balance between material, weight, and internal/external machine without any extra gimmicks added or taken away from it. Just like Kris’s riding; clean, stylish, and without any of the added unnecessary extras. Hit up your local shop or mail order to check it out and get one coming to you.
Having Woodward East as your main skatepark makes you a better rider, and Ronnie is proof of just that. So many crazy transfers, and lines. Watch now and while you’re at it, buy his signature Combat bar. You can ride just like Ronnie…
While filming for Dennis’ Rig line promo, our very own Joey Cobbs got this sick looking no-handed 3 pic over a big ol gap. Click image to go BIG. And if you live under a rock and haven’t seen Dennis’ amazing/ latest Rig line edit, check it out HERE>>
Our good friends over at Markit Denim put up a rad little gallery yesterday of photos shot throughout the filming of Dennis’ Rig Line edit. Head over to MARKIT DENIM and check out amazing photos like this fake whip down a four stair and then when your through checking those out, click on this LINK and watch Dennis’ edit again because it is simply too good not to.
Dennis Enarson and good friend, Christian Rigal originally set out to make a quick lil promo video for Dennis’ new Rig line of parts but ended up coming back with 6 minutes of bangers on just about everything rideable from SD to SF. There’s not enough words that can describe how good Dennis is on a bike and how much control he has on dirt, street and ramps. Dennis’ Rig line bars (out now), tires and cranks are fully designed and tested (thoroughly by the looks of this video) by Dennis himself. Watch now and be ready to get stoked.
Hucker and Red Bull are back at it once again. This time watch Hucker talk about Australia, Cam White’s trails, an encounter with one of the most dangerous snakes in the world, and then throw down some seriously insane riding at the Cam White Hillside Dirt Jam.
They guys at Markit Denim are at it again with their Unseen Markit Zero photos feature, this time with Demolition’s Connor Lodes. The above wall ride was featured in Connor’s Dig Mag Interview so it’s not exactly “unseen” but it’s still kick ass! Check out the gallery HERE.
We’ve been knocking out some How-To’s lately in the office and our next one is ready. It shows the in’s and out’s of taking the Rolls V2 hub apart and switching it between LHD and RHD using the Switch Drive System (SDS). Filmed and edited by our very own Josh Clemens (@joshclemens) and brought to you by Kevin. (Seems like Kevin’s got some acting experience)
Doyle has been known as the “pros pro” for some time now for a number of reasons; He’s constantly the nice guy to all riders, knows what his sponsors wants, and is the constant badass on whatever he rides. He’s also known for coming out to SoCal every year and killing the local trails. We decided to sit down with Chris while he was visiting out west at Heath Pinter’s house to get what the big differences are and everything else in-between. Click here to view it all, and click images to view big.
We just got our new Connor Lodes signature “Top Lodes” stems in stock not too long ago and they turned out amazing. The Top Lodes is a nice and mellow top load stem if you’re looking for a stem that doesn’t have as much rise (or drop) as a traditional top load, but still want a traditional reach. It’s also got a great old school style with clean modern lines. And like Connor, it’s perfect for dialing in your nose manuals. Hit up your local shop or favorite mail-order to get one special ordered….And don’t forget to check out his signature Axes pivotal while you’re at it.
There is a rad Gallery of Dennis, Connor and friends at the F.O.D. trails the guys over at Markit the other day. If you haven’t already seen it be sure to click on the link HERE and check it out.
Also while your over the be sure to check out the new Rob Wise unseen Markit Zero photos that they just posted this morning. Those guys are killing it over there!
Hucker makes his annual, or actually I think it’s semi-annual, migration to New Zealand to ride trails, milfs, jetski’s naked, and continue to live free in every way every day. Well worth the watch because any footage of Huck is well worth watching. Thanks to Red Bull for putting all this together.
To show off our new YouTube channel, we uploaded our 2011 full length Last Chance video. We separated the sections on our Vimeo channel a couple years back but now you can watch it in its entirety. Even if you’ve seen it before, it’s definitely worth another watch.
Ronnie and new teammate B.Dosch made a trip to Cleveland to get in a session at Akron, Chenga and Ray’s. Like always, I was surprised by some of the crazy shit that Ronnie does at the parks. Be sure to watch this one on a big screen too!
That’s right, we’re going to Japan! The good people over at Motocross International gave us the invite and so we got together a group of misfits together to hit the open road.

Dennis has been rockin’ his new Rig bar for some time now and has been putting it to the ultimate “D.Enarson test”. He’s also been busy putting in some time for his RIG line promo, that will blow your mind. Just saw it yesterday and it’s mind-bottling. Below are the specs on the Rig bar that we currently have in stock in 9″ and 9.25, and available in both Flat Black and Chrome.
Rise: 9″ & 9.25″”
Crossbar OD: .75″
Crossbar Height: 6.5″ (9″) 6.75″ (9.25″)
Crossbar Width: 11.28″ (9″) 11.3″ (9.25″)
Material: 13 butted, heat treated CRMO. Thickest point is 1.8t (.070)
Weight: 33.2 (9″) oz
Since there were so many rad photos of the guys posted in the team page update last week, we just can’t help but make them into wallpapers so that your computer’s desktop is up to date with the freshest riding photos out there. Today’s wallpaper is brought to you by none other than New Hampshire’s finest juicer, Aaron “Aboy” Smith. We found this amazing spot on our Colorado trip last year, the spot looked incredible for photos but was tricky to get a real line at in order to make it happen. No one else wanted to give it a go because of the awkward run up but Aaron got it figured out and rode over the door a few times in order to get the photo just right. Click on in to check it out big and then give it a download to freshen up your desktop!
Daaaaaamn, A-Boy coming in hot with this one! Stop reading and get ready to be psyched to ride.
“Aaron once again puts it down in his usual buttery smooth fashion. From tech to gnarly, everything is stomped and nothing is questionable. Spots in Boston, Kitchener Ontario, and Austin.” – KINK
Hucker has a rad feature that just popped up on the Red Bull Bike blog where he and Demarcus Paul, a mellow street shredder out of SD, are asked the same questions to see where the differ, where they are alike and where they aren’t even in the same ballpark! This is a pretty rad feature so make sure to head over to the Red Bull Bike Blog by clicking here and check it out.
During a recent Red Bull trip to New Zealand, Hucker and our buddy Anthony Napolitan had an epic day shredding the famous Mangawhai pool and snorkeling with some New Zealand fish. Hucker does some wild things that you don’t usually see in a big pool like Mangawhai. Check it out!
This was seriously one of the most exciting and insane things I’ve ever witnessed in person. Kris already had this gap eyed up when we got to camp last summer and was pretty much dead set on getting in done during Demolition Week. I honestly couldn’t see how he would get the distance to clear the gap because the quarter is so steep but one thing I have learned as a BMX photographer is never doubt a rider when they believe they can do something. In this instance we were both a little bit right, the quarter did shoot him straight up to the moon and had him peaking out about 6-8 feet shy of the roof but as he descended back towards earth, Kris’ AA pro race skills carried his momentum through and he was able to just get his front tire to the edge of the roof followed by the rear. I don’t think Kris could have cut this gap any closer and everyone at camp, including Kris, was relieved that it didn’t get any closer than that. Click on the sequence to check it out big and save it as your new desktop wallpaper.
A few weeks back we had a jam at Clairemont Skatepark in San Diego to celebrate the release of all our spring products and to shred with all the local rippers. Damn near half the Demo team made it out to the session and seriously shut the park down with all the insane riding they let loose on the place. Other Pro riders like Broc Raiford, Demarcus Paul and Dylan Stark also made it out to ride and only helped progress the session into the insane level that it got to. Mastroni really came through with the fire on this edit and did a great job capturing that high paced insanity that went down. Big thanks to everyone who came out and made the jam a success, you guys all rule!! Also, be sure to check out our gallery we had up from the jam HERE >>
It has seriously been a while since we have updated the team page photos and since we have been sitting on a stack of sick photos from the guys we have loaded up the team pages with incredible images of your favorite Demolition riders! So stoked to have all these guys repping and rocking Demolition Parts on their bikes! Take some time and click on this post to see some of the craziest photos from the update and then be sure to go through all the team pages to see all the new photos posted because they’re just too sick not to be seen!
All photos shot by Joey Cobbs and Brian Castillo.
The crew from the Michigan Video is at it again this time with a project called “After Hours” where they make awesome setups in a warehouse and film insane combos throughout all hours of the night. Tyler has got some sick clips in here along with the rest of his homies who all come through hard with some sick BMX magic. Check it!
You might have seen some of our insane pic updates of Hucker on our IG but they just now released the vid of the whole Cam White’s King Of The Hill event. These jumps are definitely for a different breed of insane, they almost look like motocross jumps! Congrats again to our main man, Mike “Hucker” Clark for taking home the win.
Not much to say about Mike Gray that his riding hasn’t already told you, he’s a badass. What we can tell you is that we are beyond stoked have Mike Gray representing Demolition Parts! Keep and eye out for more from Mike and Demolition Parts in the future, IT’S GOING TO BE SICK!
Although we have already introduced you to our newest International Rider from Estonia, Erik Orgo. It’s time to make it even more official with this Welcome Edit. Erik came through with this awesome edit that showcases how well rounded of a rider he is. This was filmed by Dmitri Shushuyev during a few sessions at Monsterparks, during the harsh winters of Estonia. Huge thanks to On Wheels and everyone involved for making this happen. Look for more from Erik in the near future!
This isn’t a full fledged bike check by any means but since Biz came by to get some new goodies, we thought we’d put up a couple pics of his whip and Biz flying through our warehouse throwing the b’s. Click more to see more.
Demolition Style Cat, Chris Doyle, met up with Darryl Tocco and banged out this sick ramp edit for their frame sponsor, Kink Bike Co, at Doyle’s local skatepark, The Wheel Mill. Some seriously sick moves in here including, dialed oppo whips, suicide no handers, sub-rail five taps and much much more. A park like the Wheel Mill in a wintered state like PA has got to be gold to a rider like Doyle, and from the looks of it he has been taking advantage!
Dennis absolutely murdered the Spring Product Release Jam on Saturday with too many crazy moves to list. But if you ask me this grind to 180 lookback has the perfect mix of burley, tech, and style into one amazingly rad and rare trick to see done right. So click on this photo to check it out big, save it as your new wallpaper, and get stoked for the next Demo Jam that is sure to go down at a skatepark near you!
Checking in from AZ, just enjoying the last few weeks of good weather before the hell that is summer sets in. I have been staying quite busy finishing up my section for the Volume DVD, and have been playing host to a lot of the Volume crew the past month. Last week we had Jason Enns and Tate Roskelley out here, and had a solid week of stacking clips for the video. Things have settled down a bit, so I have had some time to go out and have some mellow sessions with the homies, finding new spots and working on new tricks. Yesterday Greg Moliterno and I shot this photo of me getting barreled in the fence, I have driven past this thing for years and always wanted to ride it. As you can see we stopped for a session, and it turned out to be a super fun spot I am kicking myself for sleeping on so long. – DH
Red Bull has an awesome gallery on their site from the release jam that went down on Sunday. Check out the gallery here and get a good look at this wedged nosepick by Hucker as well as other dialed riding photos from other shredders in attendance.

Growing up in BMX, jams were always a huge highlight. Contests were awesome for sure but jams were way more laid back, stress free sessions, with some of your favorite pros and a chance for you and your friends to get to hang out with them a bit. The idea for this jam was no different, lets get everyone together to have a great time and get a chance to win some awesome BMX goods. The only difference is now we are making the plans for a jam and hoping that enough people saw the flyers that some of them will show up. It’s funny how you never have doubts about a jam being successful, unless your throwing the jam, then your convinced it’s going to be a ghost town at the skatepark that day. Regardless of my feeling of paranoia about the turnout, tons of people showed up, locals, riders from out of town, tons of demo pros, and a lot of other pros too, it was unreal how many people showed up. What was even more unreal was the riding, one minute Doyle would be throwing huge fakie variations on the street quarter, then the next minute Kris Fox would footjam fakie a 10 foot vert quarter, Dennis was throwing insane grind variations on the uprail with Broc Raiford and Christian Rigal and the list of craziness that went down just keeps going and going. Check out this gallery from the madness that went down at our jam on Saturday, be sure to click through the whole gallery because the riding is insane all the way through to the very end.
The Demolition Spring Product Release Jam went down yesterday at the Clairemont Skatepark and was an amazing sucsess! We would like to thank every single person who made it out to either hang out or ride with us, jams like this wouldn’t be anything if a bunch of rad people didn’t come out and make it what it was, so again a huge thank you for that! We will be posting a gallery from the jam tomorrow and an edit from the jam later in the week so be sure to check those out once they’re posted.
We wanted come up with some new ways for people who came to the jam to be able to win some of our new gear. One of the ways we came up with was an instagram contest where anyone who was at the jam could post an entry with the hashtag #DemoSpringJam and the best 3 photos posted would win some awesome gear. The photos that got posted were all great but the three that won are really stood out, the winners are…
@chriswalsh32 – Fox Sylus Stem
@fantacywings – Lodes Axes Seat
@weps1904 – Markit Seat
It was around this time last year that the street spot assassin himself, Christian Rigal, came out with amazing Welcome to the Pro Team edit. Since then he has not slowed down for a second and is always out filming something crazy! But for right now lets take a minute to stop what we’re doing and watch some good ol’ awesome street riding!
