Sam Marden rides for Social Bike Co & he’s been spending a lot of time filming over summer, there’s some pretty tasty street in this video in the Nottingham/Sheffield areas but due to his VX cam breaking half way through filming, the edit kinda came to a standstill. Everything got fixed up and here’s the end product!

Sean Kelly had a trip down to meet up with the lads from Sibot BMX shop and filmed his “Southern Comfort” edit for IMG/Proper/SIBOTBMX while he was at it. The whole crew got together at Crawley Skatepark to film some bits and pieces and Sibot have just chucked this up today, looks like they had a cool mellow session.
This whopping 30 minute long edit was uploaded by the Spanish crew named “La Costa Norte” – It’s a fantastic gripping video which keeps you watching from beginning to end. The spots are amazing also, as you’d expect from an edit which was filmed on the streets of Barcelona! I’ll never get tired of watching footage from there, especially from stylish Spanish riders.
Posted this earlier on in the week and got my facts wrong (and feel a bit daft to be honest) I guess we’re all human! The “White Knight” by The Make is actually Chicken’s signature frame (not The Count’s) as I said earlier on. The Count informed me that this is actually a split edit as both of their V2 frames are out, now I can see where I went wrong!
Massive apologies for the mix up again guys!

Sibot BMX shop have been bangin’ some canny edits out recently! This one of Alex Wheatley is a pretty solid one for sure, Apparently most of the tricks only took a few attempts to land which is pretty impressive. It looks like Alex has got a lot of bike control and will get better and better with age like a fine wine!

The lads over in Iceland are killing it! Anton Ö. Arnarson uploaded this edit just yesterday. Apparently these guys are riding “one of the best parks in Iceland.” In all honesty the park is pretty shocking and they do too! The lads really seem to put it to very good use though. You can totally tell these guys are used to riding street with all of the great flatrail tech in this and there’s a few canny tricks on the pyramid lookin’ thing too!
From time to time we get user submitted videos sent in to us, I checked our messages earlier I noticed that a rider/filmer named Scott Connor had sent a video in to us. Scott explains that he is originally from Northern Ireland and has moved across to Helsinki, Finland. The street in Helsinki looks fantastic and his friend Patrick has recently had some surgery done to his knee. By the looks of this little edit, he’s recovered pretty well! Props to Patrick for being a sick guy, recovering well & getting back on his bike and cheers to Connor for submitting this one!
Please keep sending us your submissions via Facebook (inbox) or email – We love to see em’ and yours might make it up on Streetphire.

Just like the title says The Count and Chicken have a signature frame together and it looks pretty tight! Here’s the promo which The Make have released just yesterday, there’s some cool spots in there and also some local ones (well to us anyway) – I can’t wait to see one of these frames in person!

It took a few plays to understand what was going on in this edit to be honest with you! Then I read the description on Vimeo and it became a bit clearer what this was all about. It’s a “budget” film with a difference, as the guys from Gadget Films explain; “Actually I made this video for a personal application, but tried to keep it as BMX as possible. My good friend Pierre Hinze needed a new clip for his sponsor Verde BMX, so this project is a win-win. I wanted to show what is possible on zero budget, only me and my cam. No crew, no rentals.” – Give this a watch, let it boggle your mind and enjoy!
