About BSX
BSX (Bicycle Supercross) is one-on-one sprint trails style racing on a backyard track built specifically to test a rider’s skills. The short straights, lofty jumps and tight corners are very intense under race conditions but also fun for competitors and create quite a lot of entertainment for spectators. The event provides a unique experience for the local Victorian riders, as well as the interstate and international visitors during an off day of the Track Attack series. The events primary function is to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. In just five years the event has raised approximately $24,700 which has provided the hospital with new equipment. Funds have been raised through gate takings, raffles, auctions and donations.

About the Royal Children’s Hospital

Each year the Royal Children’s Hospital treats tens of thousands of children through our Emergency Department, inpatient admissions and outpatient visits.

29/12 Morphine Industries End of Year Wrap

Morphine Industries press release
Ok, First things first.  Everybody raise their hand that did not get sicker than a dog after the Grands.  Raise them high.  Not a hand to be seen.

The anticipation of the Grands and what affect the consolidation of the sanction might have definitely throw a new twist on the event.  It proved to be a positive twist by making this race the biggest on record with 603 motos.

The Morphine Crew saddled up from all corners – Ft Lauderdale, Atlanta, Rockford, Dayton, Pittsburgh and Charlotte and headed to the land of BMX greatness.  After many hours of beef jerky, energy drinks, coffee, pork rinds and many unexpected mouthfuls of dark brown rubber, we all arrived in Tulsa.  Thank God…

When the dust cleared , bikes packed and bellies where full of pressed turkey loaf and dehydrated mash potatoes, the ABA results for the year were as followed.

  • Olijuwon Davis – National #4 – A PRO
  • Charlie Hunt – N.A.G. #1 – 26-30 Cruiser, N.A.G. #4 – 28-35X
  • Doran Bradshaw – N.A.G. #2 – 35-40 Cruiser, N.A.G. #4 – 36-40X
  • Brandon McCoy – N.A.G. #3 – 19-27X
  • Jared Johnson – N.A.G. #7 – 16X

It was a great year of racing for Morphine Industries.  We had many road trips which have become legendary.  It’s all about killing it on the track and have a epic good time doing it, haha.

We have stellar family of sponsors that have keep our riders rolling in style and we have had a great time promoting on and off the track.  Our helmets are off to you and we thank you for your generous support.

27/12 Prophecy BMX: New Scud frames

Prophecy BMX press release
We are proud to introduce to you our new Prophecy carbon frame for 2012.

This new frame will be available in February 2012 for the sizes Pro XL, Pro, Expert XL and Junior.

The retail price is not finalized yet but it will be online beginning of January on our website.

The black color will be still available for frames sizes Pro, Expert XL and Junior to give to riders  more choices.

So what is new on this frame?

Basically with are using the same process of fabrication than the previous one but with new carbon 3K layers, new paint design and new seat clamp with quick release made by CNC especially developed for carbon frames.

Our carbon frame technology:

“Monocoque” frame: We are still using the same technology with a one piece front triangle that we call “Monocoque”.

Both chain stays and seat stays are as well in one piece in order to increase the rigidity.

Hand made: The Prophecy BMX racing frame is 100% hand made.

All carbon layers are placed one by one accordingly a placement chart defined in advance by our engineers and exclusive to our

product to give to the rider the right stiffness, resistance and comfort with an incredible weight!

(Pro XL frame is 3,19 lbs = 51,14oz, +/-10%).

Quality control:

Many quality controls are done at each stage of the fabrication process to control the weight and avoid mistakes.

All frame sizes are as well previously tested beside human rider test inside our laboratory’s machines:

BB pedal fatigue test during 100000 cycles with 1200 Newton

Head tube horizontal force test during 50000 cycle with 1200N

Vibration test during 30000 cycles with 54kg on seat tube, 42kg on BB, and 20kg on head tube.

Vertical fatigue test during 50000 cycles at 1200N

Carbon used: Many kinds of carbon fibers in the market could be used to make a carbon bmx frame, and all fibers get different properties and qualities. Prophecy BMX’s engineers use TR50 carbon fiber, which is the one who gets the highest strength properties compare to all other standard ones. This guarantees perfect product strength especially with our special Epoxy Resinused from Korea that we have selected.

The choice of the Epoxy is very important as well because it makes the stability of the product, increase stiffness and strength in different areas of the frames in order to improve impact resistance, especially near the BB and head tube. And to maximize 100% the efficiency of our carbon fiber and Epoxy resin , we have developed a frame in 3D ergonomic designed to give to the riders not only stiffness and light weight but as well more comfort to help the rider to transfer all his power and energy to the ground.

15/12 ONE/Kenda news update

ONE KENDA press release
ONE Bicycles is DEVOTED 2 RACING and happy to announce their new BMX frame.

The 2012 race machine is on it’s way to Holland.

Just when you thought the edge of designing has been reached, we have come up with some new features that makes this baby a killer looking frame.

For years the ONE BMX frames came with a lasered logo in the headtube. This time we took it a step further and came up with the embossed logo with a colored background.

One Bicycles 2012 BMX race frame

ONE’s typical teardrop downtube remained but is lower now to give the frame a slimmer look.

The hydroformated toptube dropped a little and is now in line with the chainstays.

That combined with hydroformated chainstays makes it one of the hottest appearances on the tracks.

This 2012 is lighter and stiffer then ever and will be available in Expert, Pro, XL, XXL and Pro Cruiser in January 2012.

All frames come in pearl white with the cool blue and black graphics.

ONE/Kenda’s BMX team will be promoting the new product line with help from their sponsors.

So we want to thank them for their support. They make our passion reality !

Of course Kenda BMX tires is on board.

ONE’s 2008 Olympic sponsor Snap BMX Products is back with us, along with Thomson and KMC chains they supply the team with their hi-end parts.

ODI is a long time teamsponsor and helps us to support team rider Maris Gutmanis in his fight against cancer.

Hawk Racing makes us ride smooth with their bottom brackets, while TVE Sports and UFO Plast makes the riders stand out on the track with their awesome looking racegear.

Long time teamsponsor VSI Products helps the team with THE helmets and powers the bikes with their Sinz Elite parts.

ONE/Kenda is sponsored by:

14/12 Factory Crupi wins 2011 Team Title!

Crupi Parts press release
Baldwin Park, California – Crupi Parts, Inc is proud to announce that our US Factory Team has won the #1 Factory Team Title for 2011. This is the biggest honor a Factory Team can achieve each year and to take this win, the Team had to battle against the best riders and other teams in our industry including Redman and Intense!

It takes so much to make a successful team and to be #1 takes even more. I believe that the importance of having a Factory Team on the track at National races across the country is HUGE as it shows that anyone can race and win on our products and our #1 Factory Team Title proves this!

I just love racing and the excitement of having my team out on the track representing my brand makes it truly fun for me. But none of this would be possible without the effort of each and every member of our Team. First and foremost, I would like to thank our Team Manager Jesse Vargas. Jesse is a true champion in every way. Jesse was the team manager of the #1 Bike Shop team in 2009, then he left that team to come over to Crupi and try his best at winning a Factory Team title. In just 2 years, he accomplished just that and without Jesse’s hard work, knowledge of how to run a successful team and the numerous hours he puts in to make the team and our pit area the best it can be, we would not be where we are. Jesse, thank you and congrats on your 2nd Team Title!

Here are the members of the 2011 US Crupi Factory Team that made this win possible.

  • Nick Adams – 9X
  • Anna Johnson – 11Girls
  • Collin Whittington – 12X
  • Alexis Vitale – 12Girls
  • Myles Wamsley – 13X
  • Julian Vargas – 13X
  • Collin Hudson – 14X (2011 2x World #1, NAG #1 and Am#2) What a year!
  • Justin Anderson – 15X (2011 NAG #2 and AM#12)
  • Josh Klatman – 19-27X (2011 NAG #1 and repeats as Am#1)
  • Dave Archibald – 41-45Cruiser (NAG #2 and Am#8)
  • Tyler Brown – Elite Men

Congratulations to you all; a well deserved victory! Thank you.

About BSX
BSX (Bicycle Supercross) is one-on-one sprint trails style racing on a backyard track built specifically to test a rider’s skills. The short straights, lofty jumps and tight corners are very intense under race conditions but also fun for competitors and create quite a lot of entertainment for spectators. The event provides a unique experience for the local Victorian riders, as well as the interstate and international visitors during an off day of the Track Attack series. The events primary function is to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. In just five years the event has raised approximately $24,700 which has provided the hospital with new equipment. Funds have been raised through gate takings, raffles, auctions and donations.

12/12 Looking for photos of Justin Lott (92-93)

by John Lott
Hi all John Lott here from Queensland, just looking for someone that would have a photo of Justin Lott with the other boys in the State Titles at Lalor Park back in 1992 or 93 ? or any photos that would help, many thanks John Lott, contact john@pooltidy.com

12/12 BMX EDGE now your Local dealer for Chase Elevn, Excess, Insight and Kingstar

BMX Edge press release
BMX Edge and BRG have joined forces to bring you Chase, Elevn, Excess, Insight and Kingstar to Australia.

The line of Chase BMX Frames are due to be on sale in Mid January. There has been a lot of anticipation of the arrival of the line of Chase BMX frames, and after show in the frames at the ABA Grands and the great performances by Team Pro Connor Fields, there has been a huge rush of demand for the line of frames. Well the wait is almost over, as the first shipment of frames arriving will be here shortly, but in our eyes, not soon enough.

Due to an unforseen complication with the in depth installation of the frame graphics and stckers, the frames that were due to arrive mid December are now looking to arrive just after the first week of 2012 in the USA. Then these new frames will need to be shipped to the dealer network. 

If you are looking to get a frame, contact BMX EDGE in Australia and make sure they have yours on pre order from either WPS or QBP Distributors as they are selling fast!.

We would love to have had the frames here sooner, but we wanted to make sure they are 100% perfect for you and not rush one thing in compromise of perfection, just to have them here a few days sooner! They will for sure be worth the wait, just ask Connor!

Check out the breakdown of the frame sizes at www.bmxedge.com.au today.

Chase BMX Frame from BMX EDGE $499.00

Chase Frames feature a double butted top tube, triple butted down tube, the chain stays and seat stays both utilize a special process known as muscle forming to give them both a unique look and give added strength and stiffness to round out and create one of the lightest and stiffest BMX frames available. Chase is able to add these incredible features while remaining true to the traditional look of BMX racing while adding Chase BMX’s cutting edge racing performance.

The Hydro formed or tear drop shaped tubing that is on the RSP Frames are custom designed, radically shaped, and drawn aluminum alloy for weight savings and stiffness that help give optimal strength and rigidity to the Chase BMX frame. Hydro formed tubes have two main advantages. First, the narrow axis is a flatter surface, which can mean a lot more surface area to carry the load, like an I-beam with a wide flange, so it will be stiffer and stronger across the minor axis. Secondly, the deeper axis will be stiffer since the stiffness varies to the cube of the diameter, stronger to the square. When using an oval shaped tube on a typical BMX frame it helps reduce flex but only in one direction, but on the Chase BMX frame the tubes are oval in both directions in the main flex areas and these tubes help reduce flex in both main directions.

The offering of Chase BMX frames are available in two colors – Brilliant Black or Winning White. Chase BMX Frames utilizes a distinctive and detailed graphics design that enhances the Chase BMX proprietary tubing which further improve the details and bring you not only the best riding, but also the looking frame in BMX.

The Chase frame was designed to be the highest standard for BMX racing. We know not everyone needs this much performance in a BMX frame and the price may not be for everyone, but neither is wining.

Chase your goals, Chase your dreams, everyone who wants to win should join the Chase!

08/12 Elite Racing Supplies update and Peacemaker Review

Elite Racing Supplies press release
Here at Elite Racing Supplies, not only do we sell some of the newest and hottest products, including the all new TNT Peacemaker Pro Cassette Hub Sets. We also wanted to know exactly how the TNT Peacemakers work.

Well we’ve done that and have disassembled my own personal set of TNT Peacemakers, both front and rear hubs.

The front hub is pretty much as per any front, but the rear is a real piece of art. Machining of the front hub is just sensational.

The rear hub has a total of four bearings, that’s right FOUR. No wonder this baby spins for ever.

The rear axle takes the two main bearings for the hub body and then a tube spacer is used to separate the bearings for the Cassette Driver, which has two bearings also. All the four bearings are the same size and over sized.

Just a quick note, the weight of the rear hub driver is about the same weight of the four bearings combined. Machining of the rear hub is also sensational and what everyone has come to expect from the iconic brand TNT. Hubs par de exellence.

Spring and Pawls replacement for the TNT Peacemakers is easy. I’ve disassembled other cassettes to see how the work and for maintenance. After seeing how the TNT Peacemakers work, it really is a wonder why other Hub Manufacturers make their hubs so complicated, when they don’t need to be.

Before I disassembled the hubs in the laced wheels I knew how well they rolled "out the box", better than most factory assembled bearings. After I disassembled the bearings for both the front and rear TNT Peacemakers, all bearings were cleaned of their original grease, dried and and re lubed with faster flowing lube, then reassembled.

The hubs were reassembled and bolted into the bike. Talk about spin forever out the box, how about spin for Eternity Plus after having the bearings tuned.

The all new TNT Peacemaker Pro Cassette hub sets really are what you would expect from the Legendary and Iconic hub sets makers TNT. The Peacemakers get a huge thumbs up and will soon be the new benchmark for BMX Racing hub sets across the globe. You don’t even need to race BMX to own a set of these Bad Boys.

Not only does Elite Racing Supplies sell the hottest and newest hub sets on the planet. We also know how the TNT Peacemakers work intimately. Elite Racing Supplies are now offering Peacemaker Race Tuning and Peacemaker Servicing. Be warned. This service is only for the most serious of hardcore racers out there.

Both services are the same process but depending on when you want them done. We can either tune your hubs before you take delivery of them or service them after you’ve had them for a while. Pricing for either service is yet to be worked out, but will be made public shortly.

Remember, the all new TNT Peacemaker Pro Cassette Hubs are available at Elite Racing Supplies here in Australia. Elite Racing Supplies also sells to overseas customers too.

Elite Racing Supplies also sells its own range of Racing Number Plates, Racing Jersey Tops, T Shirts, Singlets and Hooded Sweaters. All sportswear brands are 100% owned by Elite Racing Supplies.

Elite Racing Supplies are also seeking bike stores across the planet who wish to carry all products within the Elite Racing Supplies range. Regions need to be established so get in quick.
