Some things are just right are'nt they. This pic made it worth while having an instagram account this week. This is one of the things that makes BMX great for me, pictures of people who have rode for ever seen the top of the mountain so to speak and still enjoy it, blasting it after all this time for the sheer fun of it. It dont get much more iconic than this one, Vic Murphy laying one down in 2016!
So here he is again, Bombay airlines going backwards in unguarded airspace! This is Bambi yet again laying down an industrial alley oop over the whole chunk of this hip!
I for one know, if you are on this page you just cant see too many of these, so heres another-Bambi blast off after the fact! This reminds me of one of those classic 80's quarter pipe shots from btd.
Pre broken leg Joe Embrey filmed this edit, from Denmark back to Essex and every where in between!
Print is dead is a common phrase these days amongst BMX hipsters. I've had this pic on the wall of my shop for a few years, its getting tattered and worn now but id say this is more alive than any pic on the web and its 15 years old.When BMX was in its most independent form and healthy..."ole well back in the good old days..." This is a great peek in to that era, that sadly got so lost with all the chic and corporate crap that got pushed our way afterwards. We have other newer posters on the wall's too yet its this one that gets the most reaction, from brand new BMX kids to weathered adults. Is everything in this pic now deemed "not hot" by the majority of the big BMX sites and magazines these days and if print is dead who killed it?
Ole man... indoor wooden skatepark obstacle...laaame.
This guy thinks he's a pool skater, look at those Dickies trousers.
Look at the height on that seat post, hiding a railed seat of course.
Old Comp 3 tyre.
Big ole Etnies Throttle shoes, is that an air bubble in the heel?
That bikes a mess mate.
What size is that sprocket?
Small bars dooood!
Kelly Baker behind the spine?
Old BMX company banners in the background....are those companies still going?
Is that Birdman down there on the right?
Authentic BMX and metal combine forces on this one with the new Danzig race plate t! Or is it BMX meets Samhain?
Bambi blasting a monster pocket on local soil, much to the delight of the pic nic crew! pic by Teddy.
This is a great little vid of the infamous Epsom trails from 2003, with some well known faces featured, it clocks in at 16 minutes tho, so only for the truly dedicated trail historian! A lot of earth has been shifted since then!
...not so distant past! 2010, Jimmy kicking one out over the little jump in shoreditch park that one winters day of minus temperatures!
