The Japanese BMX scene is relatively small but the riders out there are undeniably awesome. The early 2000s/OG Animal squad influence is strong with these guys and it’s refreshing to see dudes getting creative and using Japan’s unique architechture in creative but simple ways.
“Animal Japan International riders (AKA JapAnimal), Nobuhiro “Pegy” Masuda (@4pegy), and new comers to the squad, Osomatsu Kazuei (@osomatsu_bmx) and Daisuke Shiraishi (@daisuke_hre), have put together this amazing street edit representing the essence of Animal.”
After we interviewed Brandon Begin the other day we immediately turned our sights on the latest ONSOMESHIT recruit, Connor Keating. Connor is a cool ass dude from Detroit who is amazing on a bike. The conversation quickly got off topic and we ended up talking about all kinds of different things for nearly 2 hours, enjoy!
“I spent last winter in Barcelona and got some clips every now and then in between sessions with the boys. The Berlin clips where filmed during several visits to Berlin. Special thanks to Daniel Tünte, Nando Laczko, Jay Roe and Sebi Messerer for filming and Wethepeople, Odyssey(Sport Import) and Nike for the support.”
Brandon did TCU TV a few years back with Stevie Churchill but I figured we should get him on No Jumper to fill in a broader audience on what this kid is all about. Robesman and Catfish joined me and we had a great time and laughed our asses off. Enjoy!
Daniel Tünte just dropped a new banging video part for Mankind. 4 and a half minutes of heavy street clips Barcelona, Zürich, Berlin and Germany filmed by his friend Mo Nussbaumer who has a TCU video dropping on Monday. Enjoy!
Derek Nelson has been killing it on a bike for as long as I can remember but he needs knee surgery so he’s trying to raise money on Gofundme. He also just put out this compilation of his Instagram clips that includes some absolutely fucked up tricks including a legit downside double peg from flat ground! Go give him some money for doing that trick alone.
Lahsaan recently made the move to California and has been coming through and kicking it with us a bunch as you may have noticed but today we’ve got his brand new edit for Casual BMX. Tammy McCarley put this together (and used my man Rob $tone’s “Chill Bill” for the soundtrack) and it’s hitting from beginning to end. Enjoy!
Normally I don’t post my No Jumper vlogs on here but yesterday The Common Crew met up with us and rode some of our local spots and we had a great time. So here you go, enjoy and by all means go grind somebody’s property.
Today we’ve got a dope new one featuring Tammy McCarley and Lahsaan Kobza shredding the hell out of an indoor skatepark. Enjoy!
“The “Kids That Rip” (KTR) indoor park in Glendale is the greatest escape from the brutal heat of Phoenix Arizona’s summertime. Definitely filled with other people and mainly kids at all times but happy we could create a fun little something through the madness and a short 2 hour session. Excited for cooler weather to be riding outside more is an understatement. “
I’m back home hanging out with my parents in Nashua right now but last night I went to the Hadley skatepark in Lowell and met up with a bunch of old friends (including Rory Ellis who I’m sure some of you were curious about) and had a great session with some old friends and some super talented young locals. Even though this is a BMX video it still felt like one of my regular daily vlogs so I put it on the No Jumper channel instead of the TCU channel. Enjoy!
Riders include Rory Ellis, Miacole Monsalve, Ben Dearden, Blue, Adam Sanderson and Matt Plasman AKA Yellow
Anybody who saw our interview with the LFS crew a while back knows that these guys put in work in the streets. If you haven’t managed to see their latest release yet you’re in luck today because it’s making it’s official online release right here on TCU. Enjoy!

Between full time work and school schedules throughout the entire crew, we still managed to complete our second full length DVD, LFS2. We find the time to do this cause we love it. Filmed up and down the east coast during 2013-2015. LFS3 already in the works, stay tuned.
You might not have noticed yet but Reed Stark is quickly becoming one of the most consistently entertaining YouTubers with his Safari series. Here’s his latest one that will absolutely make you want to buy a plane ticket to Spain.
Tony Malouf is the new team manager/filmer for Fit and so now even their shop stop videos are sick. Check out Brandon Begin, Ethan Corriere, Morgan Long and Tom Dugan all killing it on some pretty basic set ups in order to inspire the local youth.
John Manaras is a G. I hung out with him for a few days in Greece and we both come from the same era of hardcore early 2000s inspired street riding but he’s also a guy who really cares about keeping the Athens locals on bikes. His new web video for Animal is fire, get into it.
We dropped Clay Johnson’s Forever Rolling section the other day. Hopefully you enjoyed it, here’s an interview I did with him the other day while he was in town. Clay has been in the game for a long ass time and hit us with some great stories. Enjoy!
