Have a look at the bike check from T1 below and I’ll think you’ll agree with me when I say that Russell Brindley has one damn fine looking bike! The insides of my knees are cringing at the thought of running that seat though!
Every year the Back Bone crew goes all out and puts on three days of BMX madness that is known as the ACT Jam. Some downhill roasters built next to a race track was the site of one of the jams, and they totally reminded me of the old DK Dirt Circuit days! DIG has a photo gallery up with lots of pics that Cooper Brownlee shot from both the jumps and from concrete stops of the jam. Give them a look and hang tight for an edit that I’m sure will be coming soon. Peep the gallery HERE!
Back Bone’s 2011 Trailmix is one of my favorite trails edits of all time and just what I needed to rewatch to help boost the ol’ spirits during this cold snap we currently have going on here in the North East!
This piece that Brendan Boeck put together on Back Bone and Terrible One’s Russell Brindley has kept me stoked all week!
Back Bone’s site is always full of good stuff! Today you’ll find some very wise words about BMX from Tyson Jones-Peni, and a particularly rad Russel Brindley wallpaper that accompanies them. Check them out HERE!
For the fourth time riders from all over Australia came together to remember the legendary Dane Searls. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been four years. Dane had such a lasting impact on BMX that it seems like just yesterday that we were all still in awe over Giant’s of Dirt.

Full length BMX DVD releases are becoming fewer and farther between with each passing year, and those with trails in them have become rarer than hen’s teeth. The trails community collectively popped a boner when Back Bone announced that they were going to be releasing a full length DVD. Anyone that knows anything about Back Bone knows that Rhysty and the crew are all about trails. Sure they have a few street guys on their team, but they also have the most impressive roster of Australian trail riders that has ever been assembled. After three years of accumulating footage, Back…
Since I’m going to be in the woods most of the day I’m going to leave you with one of the most awesome things to hit the web this year. Watch it, get psyched, and go get your ride or dig on! Don’t forget that you can still pick up some Back Bone goods in the STORE!
Back Bone posted up these three stylish pics of Russell Brindley roasting the fuck out of some trails. You better believe he’s grabbing onto a Back Bone seat in those first two shots, and wouldn’t you know it we have a few still left in the store!
Words can’t even express how awesome this Back Bone team edit is! Raine Turnbull finally got around to editing this together from the 2011 trail footage he had. Most of it’s from Posh with a few clips from Catty and some Aussie trails mixed in. There’s a stacked list of riders in here but for some reason I kept expecting Brian Castillo to pop up at some point
