Issue 15 of The Albion is online and loaded up with trails goodness. In it you’ll find the rad piece above on Villij, Epsom, and Brighouse titled “Eternal Optimist.” It’s a damn fine read with photos to match. There’s also an interview with United’s young ripper Freddie Househam that you can check out after the… Continue reading The Albion Issue 15
It’s interviews like this that make me really regret never getting a subscription to The Albion. It’s an incredibly in depth and personal look into the life of one of the biggest icons BMX has ever had (and probably will ever have). You should definitely take some time out of your day to give it… Continue reading Taj Mihelich’s Albion Interview
The Albion just posted up an interesting interview with Steve Crandall about the origins of the mid bottom bracket. My favorite part of it is when he talks about the industry meeting that was held to try to establish one bottom bracket standard amongst manufacturers. I still remember when that went down. We ended up… Continue reading FBM And The Mid Bottom Bracket
The Albion just put up a gallery featuring highlights and outtakes from their “Eternal Optimists” article on Epsom, Brighouse, and Villij that ran in issue 14. Every single photo in there will make you absolutely despise that it’s winter right now. Check it out!

Head over… Continue reading Albion Pocket Knife
I’m real stoked on the pic of Teddy that they used for this new Deluxe ad! You can check it out in print in the latest issue of The Albion.
Issue 9 of The Albion is now online and in it George Marshall penned an amazing piece on Clint Reynolds titled “Live Free Or Die.” It’s a good one, so take a few minutes to give it a read. “It’s an awesome feeling when you and some friends build some stuff and it works out.… Continue reading Clint Reynolds Albion Interview
I haven’t gotten my hands on issue #13 of The Albion yet, but I do know that it contains a Jimmy Levan interview and apparently he learned flips for it. That’s cool and all that he learned flips but I do have to say that I would have rather had him bring back those infamous… Continue reading Jimmy Levan Albion Wallpaper
Blue Bench is one of the most picturesque sets of trails that I’ve ever seen. This new Deluxe ad featuring Mike Saavedra running in issue #13 of The Albion would make you think that they’re located on a tropical island somewhere. In reality they’re tucked away just a few yards from California’s urban sprawl. Check… Continue reading Mike Saavedra Deluxe Ad
