BMX is blowing up in the NW. And we’re stoked on it.
And that’s why it seems like a good time to bring some attention to our custom wheel program.
Did you know that if you purchase your hub, spokes, and rims from us, we’ll build your wheels for free? Thats right, either in stoked parts or special orders, as long as all parts of the wheel are purchased from us we will have our professional mechanics lace, tension, and true your wheels with the same time and care that is put into all wheels that come out of our shop.
