Connor Lodes was invited on our big Tea And Biscuits 2 UK tour and as you might have noticed, he went MIA throughout the whole trip. We never really got into it with him or told what exactly happened till now. We sat down with Connor to get the whole lowdown and hear what the hell happened. Click more to read the whole story.

“After the Volume/Demolition Tea and Biscuits Tour wrapped up a week or two ago, I stayed behind in England for a couple extra weeks to travel around with some friends I knew over here. I pretty much went from the bus we had for the tour straight into my buddy Ben’s car and headed towards Amsterdam. We ended up staying in some urban campground which sounded kind of sketchy initially but ended up being pretty sweet. It was super cheap, clean, and had all the essentials including good internet. After being on a riding trip for nearly two weeks, chilling was top priority so we hit up a number of Amsterdam’s finest coffee shops and really soaked in the “culture” if you know what I mean. We did get out of the coffee shop haze from time to time and got some riding in. We stumbled across a really cool vert ramp under a bridge and it ended up being one of the funnest sessions I have had so far, just pumping around on some old ass vert ramp. After Amsterdam I went back to Bournemouth, UK to chill with some friends. It was a solid week, pretty much just chilled, rode a bit, and got a sick new tattoo! I arrived in London yesterday, out of gas and out of cash I get to chill out and explore the city for a couple of days before its time to head back to the armpit of the US that is Arizona.” – DH

The new DIG site just launched and it is lookin better than ever. Couldn’t be more stoked to have more options in BMX media and actually have some original content online. Vince Perraud travelled to California earlier this year to get some amazing shots for the new DIG site and saw these two of Dennis and Christian while he was in SD. Click more to see the Dennis shot.
“Earlier this year I travelled to California with Matthias Dandois and Maxime Charveron, as part of French mobile phone provider Sosh’s ‘Couchriding’ trip. With a massive crew of two riders, two skaters, one snowboarder, two photographers, three filmers, assistants and journalists, it was hardly your typical BMX trip, but it turned out to be an insane experience. Here’s a selection of mostly unseen rider related shots from what turned into an epic photographic journey.” – Vince Perraud READ MORE

It’s been some time since we posted our last wallpaper but with Christian’s edit dropping last week it seemed like a perfect opportunity to post a wallpaper of him this week.

Not letting fear get in the way of an opportunity for unique grinds, Christian laces this feeble to crook over the T somewhere around his home base in San Diego. Check out this clip and more insane Christian madness in his latest Demo edit which you can check out HERE. Then click on this post and save this crazy sequence as your new desktop wallpaper!
Dennis’ Rig line has officially all landed and we couldn’t be more stoked to get them out there and have you guys just as stoked on them as us. These 3 parts have been through the ringer with multiple heavy hitters, and Dennis himself, riding them all year. Dennis would not let us get them out there till the parts went through full testing and he was 100% satisfied with how they came out. Between his busy schedule we we caught up with Dennis about his new Rig line for a mini interview about the parts and what goes into each one. Hit more to see/ read more. View Gallery
The Tripod seat/ post has been around a bit now and think most brands have moved over to it for it’s simplicity and function. They just got a website and this cool video to go along with it. Check it out and maybe this will help your decision to convert.
“We use the Tripod because it’s simple, lightweight, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. Our rider’s specifically requested it for those reasons and we approve.” – Brian Castillo / Demolition Parts
Christian just sent over this lil’ update from Malaysia:
I got the opportunity to come out to Malaysia and film with my Haro homies for a week and it’s been amazing! Endless laughs and good times have been had and I couldn’t be any happier that I came along! My Summer has been non stop but trips like this give my body time to heal and I get to have a lot of fun filming and hanging out too! It doesn’t get much better then that! Photo by Matthias Dandois
