Stolen Bikes have come out with some great completes lately. Some of them are completely specced with Shadow Conspiracy parts. We asked Stolen's Dave Wooten what the deal is all about.
What's the cooperation with Shadow Conspiracy on this bike? Dave: Basically we (Stolen) spec'd the bike with John Jennings' input, he actually came up with the name 'Heater', which is gangsta for a hand gun. Shadow designed the graphics and we all worked together to come up with the color ways.

Roadtrippin´ through the Republic: The T-Mobile Local Sessions Tour turned the top German bmxers loose to shred the indoor parks and hang with the locals. Tobi Wicke, Senad Grosic and Alessandro Barbero were recently roaming the five BMX parks in Germany which are supported by T-Mobile, in order to check out the parks with the locals. The three riders travelled over 2000 km to visit the diverse locations in Emmering near Munich, Darmstadt, Grevenbroich, Aurich and Berlin to test the new park features intensively. The locals appreciated it and welcomed the riders with some positive vibes. The pros thanked them their way: Frontflip no-handers, Flip whips and Double tailwhips were only some of the tricks that the guys threw down. Additional support was given by: Benny Korthaus, Mark König, Benny Paulsen, Timm Wiegmann, and Björn “Bommel” Mager. Afterwards, the mauled bodies of the riders were refreshed with a free BBQ provided by the grill team who were along for the whole trip.

When winter arrives you gotta figure out your riding possibilities. Get your group of riding friends together, rent a place tall enough to build ramps in and get to work. We've seen sketchy ghetto ramps under bridges but this German version is a bit better. 20 locals pay the rent. Sven Hoffman and Dirk Becker are the main forces behind it and got to work where everyone else kept talking about bowling in the other corners. Get off your ass and make things happen.
