Holy fuck. Long time TCU fans will remember Capone Rider. He made a 30 minute tutorial on how to make a bowl out of an apple. He posted a sex tape. He had a section in a BMXFU video. He even met me once. Well he’s back, he’s making vlogs, he has no clue how to use whatever editing program he has downloaded and he’s convinced that he not only used to be famous but that he still is. Even better, he promises more videos soon. This should be good.Read post →
One way to make a somewhat bland contest video more watchable; include a ton of b roll from a bikini contest. I spent the whole time wondering what the hell possesses an attractive woman to waste her talents on a fucking bikini contest at a BMX event but then again I haven’t spent much time […]Read post →
Technically this is a seat promo but that definitely didn’t stop Connor from going in for this one. Connor is perhaps most well known for his absurd overgrinds and this video definitely delivers on that front.Read post →
Alfredo decided to spice up his bike check a little bit by having one of his many female friends describe his bike for him. What do you think, would you let her work on your bike? Follow @alfredomancuso on Instagram for more bikes and breasts.
They say the truth comes from the mouths of babes. Well Pouya and Fat Nick are, if nothing else, babes. Pause. These dudes are 20 years old each and they have no filter. Pretty much from the very start this conversation gravitated towards everybody’s favorite topic: sex. Most rappers keep their foul sexual tales close to their chest but Pouya and Nick happily shared many of their most graphic groupie tales with childlike glee. I’ve been a fan of their music for a while but after this interview, it was official, I’m sold, these dudes are fucking awesome.

You guys have Snapchat, right? If so, follow onsomeshit.com immediately and upon completion of that task, click play and watch 15 minutes of BMX action that went down on the Street Series Snapchat this year.Read post →
A couple months ago when we dropped the Edwin TCU TV somebody left a comment with a link to the Ells Bells classic “Finding Shade” which he put out under his Sombra imprint in the early 2000s (this version is better quality but non-embeddable). Today I got around to watching it again after having seen it approximately 5 billion times throughout my youth and it left me with a warm glow and a strong desire to go do a sprocket chunk. This was Ratboy in his prime.Read post →
The other day we were discussing riders in So Cal who deserved more coverage and Larry Edgar’s name quickly came up. Long story short, soon after Nate Richter took a trip down to the FOD trails to film with Larry and a few members of his regular crew, Nathan Sykes, Matt Cordova and Ross Lanier. Even fucking Heath Pinter showed up. I don’t watch a lot of trails videos but I can definitely say that I enjoyed this one from beginning to end.
Despite the fact that this video now has almost 7 million YouTube views, we’ve actually never re-posted it on the site since it dropped roughly a year and a half ago. Only a handful of BMX related YouTube videos have more views than this section and it stands to reason that it will probably become #1 at some point in the near future. It even inspired this gif. I figure that since this week we also put out Tate’s excellent TCU TV interview it was time for a re-up. Much respect to Tate and Elf for putting this gem together.
Yesterday on our way to the skatepark I surprised Stevie Churchill by busting out the Go Pro for an impromptu Q&A. Luckily he agreed to my shenanigans and filled the world in on such topics as breaking his thumb, surgery, getting his bike stolen…Read post →
It seems that Alec Siemon AKA Alec Shmalec (or “Shmal” as we often call him) has taken yet another leap in his transformation from “kid who goes to every So Cal BMX jam and tries nose manual whip over and over” to “legitimately unbelievable bike rider and also a guy who is well known around town for being a vape enthusiast” with this new video formally welcoming him to the Primo squad. Ya did good, Shmal.
Anybody who knows anything knows that Troy Merkle has been killing it for as long as I can remember… here’s his DG section which is light on the shit eating and heavy on the tech tricks.
Panos Manaras took a little trip to The Ionian Islands (or so I’ve managed to glean from translating the page on which this video appeared) and did a bunch of bad ass stuff as is to be expected from this mad man.Read post →
This year many hundreds of diehard BMX enthusiasts converged upon San Francisco for The Street Series AKA #bmxday. We hit the streets with a gigantic squad and sessioned a few spots before finishing the day at 3rd and Army with some drinks and some surprise punk music. Nate Richter caught it all on camera. Thanks to everyone who came through and showed love to us while we were on the road, look for us coming to your city soon. Also thanks to Tom Creasy and Dakota for helping organize this.
Some, but not all of the riders featured (comment the names of your friends and what tricks they did below and I’ll update the list): Caleb Quanbeck, Shawn Mcintosh, Broc Raiford, Mikey Tyra, Dylan Stark, Josh Clemens, Alex Raban and many more.
Tate Roskelley came to town for a few days and whie he was there I got him in the studio with Catfish and I for another episode of TCU TV. Everybody knows Tate as one of the most creative riders around but it was awesome having him on the show to talk about his mentality and how he got to where he is today.

We’re back with the our 5th installment of #TUESDAYSATTIP and this time we’ve got Eric Lichtenberger wallriding and sliding up a storm at the TIP ramps with his usual blend of unexpected pegless tech. Enjoy!
What a fucking week it’s been. For my second weekly update I gave Nate Richter a ride to the OSS store and on the way I discussed some topics including our trip to SF for BMX Day, the loss of a friend, Brandon Begin’s bed bug infestation and some new music you should definitely listen to.Read post →
Fox are dropping 5 web videos throughout the rest of 2015 and here’s the first featuring the one and only Matt Priest. He broke his ankle 2/3rds of the way through this but this shit delivers either way.
“Fox Head Europe is proud to present the first of our 5 part BMX 2015 video series by cinematographer Will Evans. Part 1 features Matt Priest who has become synonymous with style in BMX. So we sent him to two of the most scenic riding cities in the world, Cape Town & Malaga. Unfortunately Matt broke his ankle right before his third trip to shoot for this video, but being as dialed as he is… we had all that we needed to finish it up. Enjoy the video and wish Matt a speedy recovery while he masters Fifa on Xbox.”
