Toby’s New Whip….

When stores call Stowaway Distribution, more often that not the person taking their call is none other than Toby Forte. Toby has been an integral part of the fabric around here since emigrating from the UK in Jan 2011, and is based out of Byron Bay, NSW. Toby’s BMX history goes back a long way, stemming from a family of BMX brethren that includes younger brother Leo and elder brother Kye, who also ride professionally for United Bike Co. Toby recently built up a new S&M Credence C.C.R. frame in the super limited Clint Reynolds Camo finish. Our good buddy Evan Jaques at Lux BMX, Brisbane, put this new whip together for him. How good does this thing look?  Both pics courtesy of Mitch from Lux also.

Most stores and team riders know Toby for his constant positivity and general froth for all things that we work on here on a daily basis. What a lot of people don’t know is that in early 2007, Toby sustained a traumatic brain injury as a direct result of riding without a helmet…

With the close help of his wife, family and friends Toby was able to make a full recovery, and focus all of his energy into making a difference within the industry that he loves the most, whilst embracing every single day. As well as this, Toby has put a lot of work in as a helmet advocate, promoting the importance of helmet safety throughout the UK & Australia. His work has been instrumental in Stowaway Distribution taking on the BMX & General Bike shop distribution for S1 helmets from California. We now proudly supply stores countrywide with a certified helmet product Toby & all of us here at Stowaway believe in and trust. All of our staff swear by S1 helmets and would not be seen riding a BMX without one fastened up low and tight.   If you want to try one of these helmets on for yourself, jump on our Dealer Locator above and head in to your nearest store to get yours today! If your local shop does not stock them please have them call us on: 08 8276 3666 or 0418 442 195 today for more info. We are very proud of the quality of the products we sell here at Stowaway, and to be selling products that potentialy protect the brains of the future of BMX in this country, is something we are going to take great pride in doing!
