Achim Kujawski is putting on the second Verthaus jam in Oberhausen with support from adidas, Red Bull and Eastpak . Last year's edition was a success and all vert riders had a great time. It doesn't happen too often that you can just ride with your friends at an indoor place on a decent ramp (it's a vertical-Red Bull halfpipe).
BMX is who I am, and how I live. 2006 has marked the beginning of a new chapter in my life by fulfilling the dream of starting a BMX bike company from the ground up. Building a brand to me isn't just selling a product but more about living a lifestyle that encourages us to create products that capture the quality, look and feel that is lacking in BMX. All while supporting the riders and artists who have inspired and supported us! Subrosa will create a product line with all our riders involved 100%. That level of involvement with Subrosa and the fusion of premium materials, state-of- the-art craftsmanship, and love of BMX will soon produce a collection that BMX can be proud to offer. I have teamed up with American Mentality, Inc. and Sparky’s Distribution to launch Subrosa’s initial products at the end of 2006 and early 2007.

The Forum frame was designed by Haro team rider & Aussie ruler Colin Mackay. Here's is some extra info on the frame also... "First off, the name represents what the bike represents: a large group of personalities, each with their own tastes and style. A Forum is never made of one person/use or function, much like this frame. It was designed with all types in mind. In years' past, Haro categorized their bikes by a discipline or particular category. We wanted to get away from that strict way of thinking, and made a bike that's good for riding...all types and styles.

Kent, WA – Since its June release, the Diamondback Accomplice has proven itself to be a nice / positive addition to society. The release of the Accomplice was thought by some to be a little early, but the only thing the $525 bike has been found to be guilty of is providing consumers with more for their money than any other complete on the market. Diamondback has combined designs from the Northwest to Florida to develop the all new Accomplice - equipped with Shadow Conspiracy components.

The latest Eurobike trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany was the biggest one ever. Even for BMX it had quite a bit to offer. Usually it's the same few big brands that show the new product but the 2006 version of it had the biggest ('core) German BMX distributors (Allride, G&S, La Finca, Unity) display their new stuff. Some had a booth outside (Allride, KingKong, Kuwahara, Perv and they were lucky with the super weather in Friedrichshafen. It was a stacked show which had over 31,000 trade visitors, 19,684 visitors on the Open House Day and 1,064 journalists from 32 countries.
