    #51 "Hacksaw" Wheeler is in da house! Last weekend Hacksaw went head-to-head with his nemisis on his new "Skyrocket Blue" Turbo Bike Co. frame and took down his biggest rival. He had a good weekend and rode his Turbo bike to the top step of the podium on Sunday at a triple points race. He beat Ronnie "The Snake" Wilson, a Kaos rider who had beat the "Hacksaw" in the last couple of weeks. Hacksaw has kicked it up a gear or two since being on his new Turbo ride. "The Turbo frame corners like no other frame I have ever ridden. It kills it hands down!!!"

  • "Hacksaw" Wheeler training hard on his "Skyrocket Blue" Turbo BMX bike in the hope to take down his competition... Go the Hacksaw....

  • Mark "Hacksaw" Wheeler just sent us in a pic of his new ride, the Turbo Bike Co. "Skyrocket Blue" Pro-XL 21" TT frame. His new ride has already taken him to the podium.

  • Keep your eye on this space as we will be revealing images of our new 2014 Prototype Pro Cruiser frame and Turbo Expert frame very soon. Here is a sneak peak at the new "Hot Pink Pursuit" Turbo bars that Alex Cameron will be running on his bike. Alex will be running the standard sized 28" wide x 8" tall bars that will suit most riders. Jordy Lecher will also be using the new Turbo Bars, but he will be running the new "XT" version, that stands for "Xtra Tall", as these bars will be 29" wide x 8.25" high for all those taller riders. BMX Mad and Carters Cycles will have limited quantities of Turbo bars in both sizes in stock real soon.

  • Congrats to the Blackman Bicycles HPP Team who are co-dealed on Turbo Bike Co. frames, that went to the UCI Worlds in New Zealand. Jordy Lecher rode in the ultra tough Junior Men class. Jordy made it all the way to the semi final where he finished 6th. He was also the fastest Aussie in the Junior Men time trial. Mitchell Chaston made it all the way to the semis in the 16 boys before missing the cut. He was the last Aussie standing in his class. Kyle Jaehne wowed the Aussie contingent on his way to nailing down World #4 in the cruiser class. Gemma-Lee Thomas has been literally going scary fast for a while now and she packed her recent form in a suitcase and took it with her to NZ and blitzed it all the way to World #4 in the 16 girls. Well done to the Blackman Bicycles HPP Team!!! Now that the Worlds is run and done, the Blackmans Bicycles HPP Team will be switching over to their new Turbo frames. Expect to see Jordy and the rest of the Blackmans Bicycles HPP Team shredding up the track on their new Turbo frames.

  • Yo it is "Hacksaw" Wheeler just dropping in to let you know how much I love my new Turbo Bike Co. frame in "Skyrocket" Blue. I had my first race on it last weekend and straight out of the box the new frame is nuts! I had an awesome race and finished with a good 2nd place. I was beat by the same rider that beat me the prior weekend. This time the lead changed three times and I was winning into the last turn where he pulled a good move and it stuck for him, which gave him the win. I can't complain too much, he didn't win because of a mistake by me, he just pulled a good move, and he is also a 35x class rider and I am 41x, so he has a few years on me. Everyone I spoke with loves the bike. When I built the bike I didn't have to go and fine tune it after riding it, and it went together first go. When I get some pictures I will send them in...

  • Jordan Lecher has picked up his brand new Turbo Bike Co. frame Pro-XXL size in Turbo Red.

  • Turbo Team Riders Michael "Tiger Robinson (see pic above) and Blake Schofield (See pic below) hit up round one of the new race season at the Nerang Internationals.Day one Blake rode hard with some mixed results and missed the cut through the Elite Men quarters. Tiger reclassified to "Vet Pro/ Masters". He killed it all day and easily made it through the semis and into the final. He holeshot the final and a mistake on turn two allowed him to be passed. In the third straight Tiger found himself on the infield and finsihed 8th. Day two and it was all guns blazing again. Blake once again fell victim in the quarters. In Masters Tiger was making up for yesterday. This time he made the final and corrected his mistake on turn two, to go on and win the final easily.

    Thud Factory Team rider, and Turbo Bike Co. co-deal rider Alex Cameron (See pic below) had a huge weekend. On day one he made the tough Elite Men final and finished 5th. Day two was much the same as Alex made the final and once again finished 5th. On day three Alex hit up the tough AA-Pro class which had 45 riders. He once again made a tough final. At one stage Alex was sitting second, but he left the door open on the inside of the last turn and was passed to finish 3rd. It was a great hit out by all team riders on their new production Turbo Bike Co. frames.
