Effraim Catlow: BMX Banter Podcast

It’s not often I promote myself on the site. A few weeks ago I caught up with Jon Dowker and Anthony Berardi for a chat for an episode of the BMX Banter podcast.

We discuss my roots in riding, the U.K. scene, why I run Flatmattersonline, competing across the globe for thirty years, my new edit, plus my views on so many rider related topics such as Instagram vs Videoparts, and much more.

  1. It really seems like the importance of music and bmx maybe isn´t touched on enough and possibly something lost on the newer generations as its got it more international; without bmx and contests and videos I wouldn´t know a bunch of bands and music I listen to. Like, Mark Eaton´s taste, Rampage/Standard Byke Company and BS series tastes, Wire Zine and Video tastes. And the idea of DMC´s runs without the music is totally on point, his tricks wouldn´t have popped without that soundtrack.

  2. Totally agree , E . Cats really need to encourage each other more , leave a positive comment . Just a couple of kind genuine words go a long way and motivate people’s riding . Ya also have a valid point on video parts , top 5 riders on your list , and the benefits of contests in the sport . This was a really great listen , chat between you three . I hope if the Duke does a second one with you…….you really get into your 1997 , blue Standard shorty frame , O.G. bars , candy bar decade ,lands to freak squeak , long links era of your riding. As I’ve said countless times over. Your section in O.G. Marton’s Parade BMX video……THAT section of yours really influenced me as a rider . ( still to this day. ) It was also the first time I saw video of your riding. I’d pay a good amount for anyone to upload that section and entire video online. ( the riding , music , vibe…so rad , times 7 . ) Thank you , Big-E / BMX Banter….
