If you’ve got a younger brother, son, nephew or other kid in your life who wants to get into BMX, get them on the kind of bike you wish you had when you started riding, WeThePeople’s 16″ Seed.
“We don’t believe in restriction at wethepeople; why should a rider have to wait until he can be a certain size to fully appreciate the opportunities BMX has to offer right? That’s why when we developed the 16” Seed we didn’t believe that just because it was a smaller bike it shouldn’t have the same amazing components and quality as its older brothers and sisters. Always wanting to go the extra mile, we have developed a whole host of components tailored to fit a small rider. The Seed comes with a shorter offset stem, smaller pedals and ergonomically shaped saddle all built for one purpose to give even the youngest rider the best possible start in BMX.”

Head over to animalbikes.com to see What’s Good with Ben Lewis these days. He’s been well busy in 2013 and will soon have dope parts in the DUB, Fit and upcoming QSS #6 videos to show for it. But as you’ll read, the life of a globetrotting BMX pro doesn’t come with out a few compromises, namely a constant case of jetlag and hardly ever being home for more than a few days at a time. Going on trips like Animal’s recent venture to Japan seems more than worth it though!

“Pretty much every rider out there has a board to use when filming lines or peeps who can not only shred on a bike but also likes to skate. Together with Focalpoint we have made this edit on how a filming board can be used for filming BMX. There are many techniques you can apply to filming on a board this is just a little insight to help you get started. Best advice we can give you is to make sure you clear your line of any small rocks or anything else that can send you flying mid filming, you can see at 1.01 in this video Cooper actually hit a small rock that he missed on the clean up but luckily he had big enough wheels to keep rolling.”
Here’s the embedable version of the behind the scenes edit from Hucker’s wild Red Bull trail loop project. This will give you an inside look at what went into building this thing, what the rain did to it the week before and what it took to get it rideable. This is still so crazy!
