Whats Up? 

Boyd Hilder and Alex Hiam…

 

If you have been around in the Australian BMX scene the past 5 years the names Alex Hiam and Boyd Hilder probably sound pretty familiar. This is because guys have been smashing it when it comes to BMX for the past decade and the fruits have started to ripen. With both guys having signature frames and parts with their respected companies. Both these guys have been extremely busy, having a fair bit on the past few years, so we thought the end of 2020/ start of 2021 was a great time to catch up with the two and see what their lives have been like in the past year. 

 

 

Unfortunately for Boyd he has been on the sideline this year with a busted knee but is in good spirits and doing everything he can to get back into it. Boyd's rig of choice is of course his signature ICS2 Boyd Frame with a bunch of Odyssey and Federal parts to finish it off. We loved his bike so much we decided to build one up as a custom for a lucky customer. 

 

You can see that here:

 

Check out what Boyd has been doing since he hurt his knee, what he’s been doing to get better and everything else that's been going on in his life

Since the lockdowns first began, Alex didn’t let this slow him down and has used the emptier streets to get to work filming a BMX video part for Vans with local video man Troy Charlesworth. Shutting down the parks and streets of Brisbane and its surrounds have been on Alex’s to-do list and by the sounds of things he has been enjoying taking his time with this project. We can only imagine what craziness he has been working on and here at LUXBMX we can’t wait to see it finished!

 

Alex rides his signature Colony Sweettooth frame fork and bars with a bunch of colony parts finished off with his own little touch, from colours to stickers Alex’s bikes are always one of a kind. You can see all of Alex’s signature parts here: 

 

 

If you haven’t already, check out this new video of Alex replying to your questions, getting some lunch and even having a shred at one of Brisbane's most iconic rails!

Custom Bikes rolling out the door

 

 

When you started riding you probably rode something that came as a complete bike, it might have been from Kmart or Target and it probably isn't going to last. If it wasn't a new bike it could very well be second-hand parts that you got from a sibling or a friend, and when your at the park it's a good time to see some new parts you might want to get on your bike. A few years have passed and you’re ready to upgrade your bike again but this time you know what you want and you want it built properly. Here at LUXBMX we offer over 10,000 awesome bmx products and have a bunch of rad bmx riding mechanics that know how to make your bike feel and look the way you want it. This week we have built up some pretty epic looking customs, some of which are still available on the website! 

See these good looking bikes below, starting with Brandon Luopos's signature Hyper Lunatic custom.   

 
This bike has been built using lightweight strong products from hyper and snafu, featuring some pretty insane titanium sunset coloured spectre spokes laced to colony hubs and Odyssey 7ka rims. This bike is specced to be responsive but still stable when going quick art the bottom of those big transitions 
 
  
 
 
If your thinking this custom is too "park" for you, maybe you want a more traditional BMX bike, maybe this Nina Buitrago T1 Ruben Frame in sea green. We used some rad Flybikes and Odyssey parts to keep this thing very similar to what Nina rides herself. Get to the trails, the skatepark or out in the streets this bike is ready for everything you have to through at. 
 
 
  
 
 
 
Finally for all the Boyd Hilder fans out there, we wanted to build up a fresh Boyd inspired Federal X Odyssey build, made to handle it from the streets to the deep end of the bowl. We used an array of the strong Odyssey parts to withstand those big drops body has been known to take.

BMX race Vs BMX freestyle 

When buying a bike for someone or for yourself you should ask “what are you going to be using it for?” When it comes to bmx there are a few different disciplines that will dictate how your bike is set up to ride. There are two main variations when it comes to a BMX bike, freestyle or racing

 

 

LUXBMX Team Rider Boyd Hilder On his Freestyle BMX bike

 

Bmx freestyle bikes have really changed over the past 20 years originating from BMX racing freestyle began to take flight and doing tricks changed the way the frames were built, the materials they were made from and the sizes of the tubing. As freestyle BMX further dissected into sub-genres bikes changed again, they were more specifically built for flat land, street, dirt and skatepark riding. The race bikes became much lighter due to the materials and technology developing as the years went on. More modern designed frames added power to ground which is ultimately what these bikes are built for. 

 

LUXBMX team rider Tristan Scott getting out of the gate first!

 

Bruce morris is a bmx racer/rider/lifer and knows bmx race bikes better than most with over 40 years of BMX racing experience under his belt. Bruce and Dale sit down to give you the main things to think about before you buy a bike for your self or someone else this Christmas time.

Denby Chandler- The Raw Clips

 

A little over 5 years ago we proposed the idea of adding Toowoomba native Denby Chandler to the LUXBMX team and shortly after got underway in filming for our first full-length Aeterna. After meeting more of the Brisbane BMX scene and making the move to Brisbane after a few injuries, Denby’s destructive power on his bike became more apparent to the BMX riders of Brisbane. From the first clip, he filmed through to the last Denby put 110% IN every time he went to toe to toe with whatever spot was in front of him. Travelling around Australia and being shown some of the best spots our country has to offer, Denby took full advantage and got to work in a mad trance. As Denby collected clips with Mike it became apparent he wasn’t playing around and the spots got bigger and bigger.    

The more Denby filmed the more everyone around him realised his high energy and insane BMX prowess. As the DVD deadline got closer Denby turned the burners up once again returning to Botanical Gardens rail time and time again to add more fuel to the fire. One memorable session at the 'Gardens' rail was watching Denby over smith down the one of Brisbane’s best-looking rails, slipping and sliding until he got the clip he wanted.    

 

As you can imagine Denby’s riding doesn’t come without a few crashes along the way, paired with his antics while out in the streets, enjoy 9 minutes of Denby handling big spots and taking a few spills.

Out the Back 

A new playlist on our youtube channel, Out the Back features riders coming and getting in a session “out the back” of LUXBMX. The addition of the new ramp has been something that owner/riders Mitch and Ev have dreamt about for years. Finally, with the new space, there was room to have Jason watts come and build an epic ramp for the boys to shred. 

Last week we had Alex and newly added team rider Josh Dove come through and get in a couple hours on the ramp. Alex shut it down with his signature technical style, powering through some insane combos and putting the work in once again to bring you more hammers! 

See Alex’s Out The Back video here: 

After that your probably wondering “how long did that take?” Alex puts the work in to bring you the insane level of riding and as you can imagine it doesn’t happen without a few slams as well.

See all the attempts and b-sides here: 

Next on the list is Josh Dove, Dovey is the newest to the LUXBMX team and keen to get in and have a rip on the ramp. Josh rides a bike like a rocket ship blasting his Fly Sierra to the moon and back on a regular occasion. Dovey gave the ramp his special touch and the result was epic! 

See Josh shredding out the back here:

Josh spent no time getting work on the ramp and unsurprisingly landed everything pretty much first try.

Here are the raw clips from that morning and a few clips that didn’t make the cut.

When our good friend Chris Lembo approached us with the idea of giving away his old camera gear we knew we had to do something special. The decision to hold a competition to give it away was the obvious choice but we couldn't have predicted how much interest it received and how supportive everyone has been of the competition in general. We were absolutely blown away by the quantity and quality of entries and, to be honest, the task of viewing, organising and judging all of them has been a massive one! We got there in the end and, after much deliberation, we're beyond stoked to announce the winners of the 2020 LUXBMX Video Comp...

 

Winner - Archie Kenward

 

It was a tough call to pick a winner from all the amazing entries but in the end, it was Archie Kenward that our judges all agreed on. The edit has an awesome vibe, is perfectly paced, extremely well filmed and creatively makes use of a mix of cameras with some excellent custom animated titles to boot. Archie wins the camera setup and we can't wait to see what he can produce with it in the future.

 


 

Runner Up - Finn Maurer

 

Finn Maurer's entry had one of the most creative concepts of the bunch with the theme being one continuous shot in one location. We'd definitely love to see more like this! Props Finn!

 


 

Runner Up - Boris Tribunsky

 

Boris Tribunsky's edit embodies BMX perfectly and what we think an edit should be. Great vibe, super fun with a bunch of antics. We loved the music and the raw feel.

 


 

Massive thanks to anyone that put in the effort to submit a video for the competition. We were blown away by the number of entries and the amount of talent and quality that's out there in the BMX world.

 

We had so much great feedback from the competition and we can't wait to have some more in the future to celebrate the more creative aspects of BMX. Stay tuned!

Get the right bike for you- With Dale Hodgson

Like all of us here that work at LUXBMX, Dale is just as keen on BMX as you and me. With the new parts that have made their way to market over the past decade, it’s no wonder that picking out a new bike can be a little tricky. Getting the right fitting bike for you is very important and similar to buying new parts, you need to get the right size. 

In this new series, Dale is going to talk us through all the parts on our bikes making sure you understand what all the technical stuff means and why it’s important to pay attention to. Dale starts us off by talking us through LUXBMX’s most popular grips and differences in most grips out there, what makes a good grip and which grips are the longest lasting. 

 

Focussing on the four of our most popular grips including 

Cult X Vans Flangeless Grip: 

 

 

S&M Bikes Hoder Grips

 

Odyssey Brock Raidford Grips:

 

ODI Longneck ST:

 

See the full video below. 

 

Next up to the grips and an important part of your bikes front end, Dale discusses everything handlebars and what to look for when you are choosing your new set of bars. Have you ever wondered what backsweep, upsweep, height or width refers to and the impacts they make to your riding? Focussing on the Eclat Chocolate bar in both regular clamp size and the newer, larger 25.4 mm clamp and the Federal v2 4pc bars. Dale has all the answers after the jump! 

 

See the eclat chocolate bars here:

 

 

Chocolate Oversize clamp

 

Federal 4pc V2 Drop bars


 

See the full video here

 

 

Following your front end straight down from your bars will be your stem. Another part of your bike that could be overlooked if you don’t know what’s the right size for you. The ultimate height and “reach” of your handlebars will be determined by your stem. Dale also runs through all the technical terms and lets you know about clamp size in relation to your stem and bar combo. 

 

See the Wethepeople hydra stem here: 

 

See the Eclat Domain front load stem here: 

 

See the full video

 

 

 

Holding your front wheel to your bike are your forks, the next piece of the puzzle in the front end. Your forks can make quite a difference to how responsive and “twitchy” your front end will feel. Depending on the type of riding you’ll be doing will determine the type of forks that will be right for you. Dale gives you all the information you need featuring the famous and much loved R series forks from Odyssey. Discussing axel size, offset, steerer tube, and top caps, dale runs you through all the important stuff you’ll need to know when purchasing a new set of forks.

This year LUXBMX has gone through some huge changes being in our new location: the ramp out the back, new staff and new systems to make the shipping process smoother and faster to get your parts and bikes to you quicker with minimal contact. Abiding by the new and ever-changing COVID19 guidelines has been a tricky balancing act. As we have all adjusted and adopted new more streamline processes there has been some (understandable) confusion so hopefully, this will clear everything up.

1. Add to Cart: In Stock.

This one is pretty self-explanatory but this refers to us having the physical product in stock in our warehouse. So in this scenario, this frame will be sent within 24 hours of the order being placed (on average). Basically, that means if you ordered this frame before 12 pm that most likely it will be sent out the same day that you order it. This doesn’t mean that you will receive your frame the same day, but it will be on it’s way!

We always recommend opting for express shipping when possible, so you can get your parts nice and quick!

 
 

 

2. Add to Cart: 1-2 Days handling.

“1-2 days handling” refers to the time that it takes to get the frame from an external warehouse to the LUXBMX showroom. In this example, the customer would order the frame from the website, we then transfer the frame from an external warehouse. (The 1-2 days handling refers to this time spent transferring between the warehouses) Once that frame hits our showroom, Sean gets it into a box and then off it goes to your front door.

 
 

3. Notify Me.

We don’t currently have this frame in stock, the “Notify Me” button will send you an email when the frame has been restocked. If you let us know that you want this frame we can either try to order you one (if it’s available) or we can recommend something similar for you. If you are unsure about any of the products we stock, please send us an email so Dale, Jack or Dave (our customer service legends) can get back to you!

 

 

 

4. Stock in Transit.

 

Once you have made your order you will be able to click through to your account on the website. On this page, you can check the status of your order. In this example, the amount owed is $1 and this has not been paid yet. You can pay your balance with the “Pay” button. (Orders must be fully paid before we can ship them out!) It shows the order placed and the date the payment is due. It will also show you the status of your order. As shown in the top right-hand part shown in orange “Stock In Transit”. This refers to your order being transferred from an external warehouse to our showroom in Woolloongabba

 

 

5. The dispatch Email.

 

If you receive an email that looks like this, that means your item has been picked up by the postal/courier service and is en route. Yeeew At this point, you will be given a tracking number from the shipping company and you will be able to track your item from here. (Tracking details may take up to 24 hours to update on the courier’s website)

NEW BOYD HILDER ODYSSEY VIDEO ON THE WAY!

Back to the top

 

Boyd has been on a mission for the past few years, and despite not being able to travel the good majority of this year, Boyd has been hard at work with Troy Charlesworth working together on a new video for Odyssey that should be due out in the not too distant future. Boyd has been pushing himself and battling some huge set-ups and a diverse amount of spots making sure you will be glued to the screen from start to finish.

This isn’t the first time Boyd and Troy have worked together, back in 2015 Boyd was riding for Mankind and the duo paired up to bring us a first look at Boyds new-age, hybrid style of riding. Covering everything from rails to trails and of course a few of Brisbane and the Gold Coast Skateparks. After this video dropped Boyds mark on the BMX scene was starting to be seen and as the years have gone on Boyd has further refined his style while keeping the same fun attitude to his riding that he has become so well known for.  

 

 

 

During the weekend Boyd and Troy got together to film a few more clips to go towards this new video they are working on. This rail Boyd had in mind on the weekend wasn’t for the faint-hearted a tall steep rail nestled in the heart of the Goldcoast between the two houses in a quiet little suburban street.

Boyd rides his signature frame from Federal Bikes. The Boyd ICS2 Frame features: 

Tapered seat stays

Stamped down tube gusset

Seat Tube 71º

Chain Stays 13.4” Slammed

Top Tube 21”, 21.2” or 21.5”

Built with Boyds riding in mind this frame is strong and responsive but offers a size built for the taller riders out there. Coming in matte black and turquoise these frames look the part and handle anything that Boyd throws at it!

The Brisbane BMX scene has been strong for years, fluctuating in popularity over the years there has always been a huge group of talent coming from the great southeast. During the uncertain times that we have been facing some of the QLD team guys have been utilizing the empty parks and centers all over this huge sunny state. Over the past weekend, a few of the guys got together and went “on tour” with Troy Charlesworth behind the lens all weekend and good friend Jason Watts at the wheel of the Fast and Loose bus. Jake Norris, Boyd Hilder, Denby Chandler, Troy and a whole bunch of crew headed to the north side of Brisbane to see what was on offer. With Troy filming for his latest video project “tear the club up” due out some time late this year/early next year, the weekend was set to be a productive one. Starting from when the sun went down on Friday, the fellas headed into the streets, strapped up with cameras and lights they were ready from whatever the night had to through at them. Here are a few looks at some of what went down.

Thesee drains were super fun and Norris made short work of them. Over the barrier to flat, opposite barspin and a table top with ease before filming the real clip.


 

 

 

Norris's Grip of choice- BSD Leezus Grip


 

Boyd Hilder can ride just about anything. Half Cab from top to bottom.


 
Boyd rides his own Federal Bikes signature ICS2 frame. Coming in a rad looking turquoise and the obligatory matte black, and geometry to match Boyd's style,these frames are built to do it all! A geometrical "sweet spot" some would say; 75.2 up front and 13.4 up the rear. To make this frame strong enough for someone like Boyd to ride Federal have packed it full of goodies including the Investment cast dropouts, chain stay bridge and seat clamp.

Jake Norris hails from Rockhampton but has been spending more and more time in Brisbane over the years. Traveling in search of newer spots to ride, new people to ride with and a new place to enjoy a beer at the end of the day's riding. Jake has an incredible amount of bike control and can make some of the most technical combos look simple.

Watching Jake handle big setups while remaining calm and collected is something that shines through his riding. The mental battle in riding is something that all riders deal with when they are facing their fears. Hopping onto a bigger rail, jumping a larger set of trails, or doing a trick that has been mentally defeating you for a while at the skate park. These are skills that bmx riders learn from the get-go and Jake is no different. If you haven’t already seen it, Jake featured in our Full-length DVD, "Aeterna" that you can see here:

 


 

 

 

BSD Soft goods look the goods!


 

Jake rides for Scottish owned brand BSD, and if you have seen Jake ride you’ll know that his bike can withstand some abuse. Check out his welcome to LUXBMX video here.

Clint Reynolds Credence/S&M gear is Awesome! 

From private bowls to epic trails, timeless video parts, and extreme bike control Clint Reynolds has been a figure in BMX for years. Striving toward a similar dream that most BMX riders have at some point. Clint was able to produce frames for his friends and family and beyond. Designed and constructed by him, Clint toiled with the welder until asking FBM to help him produce the frames. With BMX being the unpredictable beast it is Clint decided to slow down on the production of Credence frames and withdrew from working with FBM. Several years later the owner of S&M (Chris Moeller) would call Clint and see if he was interested in manufacturing Credence frames out of S&M as a merger and not a separate company. Thankfully Credence got its lifeline and now Credence frames are available and come in a bunch of brand new colours and geometries and built by one of the oldest BMX companies around. 

 

Clint has also been able to release a swag of products through Credence/S&M which are all available at LUXBMX today! Shop online or make an appointment to drop instore to get all the new S&M/Creedence gear now!
