Charlie Crumlish was one of the original OSS team members so I’ve been hanging out with him and riding with him for approximately 8 years now. But in truth I’ve been aware of him for at least a half a decade before that, watching his videos on BMX Board way before YouTube hit the scene. Since then he’s become one of my favorite riders, not to mention one of the funniest, smartest dudes in BMX. After Catfish and I finished our interview with Ralph Sinisi we had Charlie sit down for his long anticipated episode of TCU TV and we got in as much as we could given the time we had. You may be seeing a lot more of Charlie on TCU TV in the near future so stay tuned!

Nate Richter hit up the Fiending The 13th jam at the No Ho skatepark then hung out at Thee Block and checked out Fernando’s latest full length, Stay Out Here with a bunch of the local riders. I’m not sure if this video contains more barspins or beers but it’s definitely close.
The annual 5050 Skatepark Halloween jam went down a few weeks back in Staten Island, NY and if you’ve ever been to a jam there you already know it’s always a good time. Animal Bikes came out with their squad and held it down with the giveaways for best trick and a product toss. S/O to Ed & Angelica for always holding it down for the NYC scene.
Trey Turner is back with his signature super-tech lines completed perfectly in a super-chilled manner. Look at that last hang 10 around the skatepark. G code. Was super into the drop smith/quick feeble manual to drop/360 at 2:50ish as well. Love this kid’s biking.
PhD of Pegs Pete Greaves landed a completely historic move (the ender) and this edit he admits was put together to celebrate 10,000 tries he had to put in before pulling it. He has dubbed it the SCHWING. One of the craziest fucking things I have seen on a flat rail if not the craziest, I am not exaggerating. The rest of the video is quality too!
Here’s our second 2015 Instagram Compilation for the year featuring our very own Dillon Lloyd. Dillon has been murdering it all year both with us in California, back home in Canada and all over the rest of the world on trips with his other sponsors, We The People , Eclat and Vans. Here are some of his hardest hitting internet specific clips. Follow @dilllloyd on The Gram for more heat like this.
Demolition blessed Tyler Fernengel with his very own signature stem, seat and bars aka the Paradise line and he filmed a bunch of crazy clips to promote the whole thing! Tyler also talks about the parts, design and geometry so make sure you press play on this one if you wanna learn more about the line!
The 2015 edition of the Let’s Roast Jam went down in Chicago a few weeks ago and here’s some awesome footage from the day courtesy of The Gully Factory. Featuring Kevin Porter, Brian Kachinsky, Timmy Theus, Austin Aughinbaugh, Dylan McCauley, Grant Castelluzzo and many more!
“Our annual Chicago jam with Let’s Roast is normally held in July but with Street Series in Chicago this summer we decided to push it back a bit later in the year. After some heavy procrastinating we realized we needed to just pull together whatever we could and make it happen in order to keep the tradition alive. Even with short notice the Chicago scene did not let us down. We had a dope turn out involving some our favorite Midwest legends like Kevin Porter and Brian Kachinsky. Also familiar faces like Timmy Theus, Austin Aughinbaugh, Dylan McCauley, Grant Castelluzzo and more. We did get hit with some rain right as things were turning up but managed to seek shelter and continue the party. Thanks to everyone who came out and Let’s Roast Cycles of Chicago for donating their time and efforts to keep things like this going.”
I had the pleasure to ride and show Janis Oriovich around town for the past 3 weeks and I was really impressed by his level of riding! Here are a bunch of killer raw clips he filmed during his stay when he wasn’t busy getting drunk and chasing Finish girls…
Watch this new Odyssey video if you wanna learn more about Tom Dugan‘s signature DGN stem which features 51mm of reach and a 28mm rise. There’s also a couple of killer Dugan clips in this and if you wanna learn more about the stem follow this link.

We all know Simone is a ripper and master of steeze, so it only makes sense that he has one of the best looking completes out right now with Subrosa. This video shows him putting it to the test straight out of the box and it does not dissapoint! It’s loaded with after market parts and a super clean color way to match Simone’s style. Available at the OSS store now! Details for the video below and specs on the bike after the jump!
“Subrosa pro Simone Barraco linked up with Moritz Nussbaumer in Barcelona to take his signature 2016 Novus Complete Bike out of the box and shred around town! Simone’s style of riding and artistic influence played a huge part in the development of this bike!”
Watch the video to see some pretty insane driving, stick around for the credits to see Dylan do a pretty awesome Caveman off of a second story bridge into the smoke of 2 badass drift cars, and click below to see some behind the scenes content that we got and some flicks that OSS Store employee and photographer Phill Arellano shot.

The Snakebite guys have just uploaded Bruce Crisman’s section from the Salvation video that came out in 2002 and it’s so good! As they mentioned “this was after Bruce won the X-games and right before he switched to riding a freecoaster” and it still remains a classic almost 13 years later!
Watch this new video as Mark Webb, Alex Coleborn, Daniel Sandoval, Nick Bruce, Rob Armour and Kaden Stone destroy the Jaycee Skatepark in Greenville during one session! Mark Webb does a frontflip to manual in this and it’s pretty amazing!
I spotted this video early today on the Northern Embassy website and it’s definitely a great watch! Showcasing the great Edmonton scene, filmed and edited Mike Orita, this features some sick riding from Isaac Barnes, Jared Chilko, Jaumell Campbell, Jordan Hango, Luke Santucci and many more!
“I’m lucky to have a great group of friends that all have the same common interests of having fun and riding BMX. Thanks to all the homies and everyone that filmed or had a floor to crash on. Truly am blessed for this life I’ve that bmx has given me and has surrounded myself with people that make every moment memorable and enjoyable”
I’ve been patiently waiting for this video to come out since I’ve first seen that The Make team was in Vancouver filming for a new piece and the final result was definitely worth the wait! Check out 6 minutes of pure raw street riding from one of the realist crew in BMX featuring Clarky, Wozzy, Shaun Hadlington, Orlando, Brad Hill, Jordan Hango, Marv and Tom Curtin.
