Have you ever wondered how those complete bikes get assembled and where and by who? Here's an in-depth look at a reputable bicycle factory in Taiwan that we got to tour while on the road with the GT BMX squad... Complete with hyperbolic test chambers, moving conveyer belts, wheel building machines, and much much more. This shit is pretty nuts, but major shouts to all of the factory workers out there who keep up cruising in the streets! Thank you to Ben Ward and GT for making this happen.

Perry Kramer Rejoins SE Bikes. The man who put the “PK” into the iconic PK Ripper BMX bike from SE is returning to the fold. Perry Kramer helped Scot Breithaupt launch SE Racing and kick off the BMX phenomena in the late 1970s with SE Racing’s legendary PK Ripper. Kramer will be the Southern California territory manager for Advanced Sports International brands, which includes SE Bikes.
Kramer said he is excited to be back with SE, which is seeing an explosion in sales with the introduction of the 29-inch Big Ripper and the growth of the BikeLife wheelie movement. “It's definitely cool to sell a PK Ripper or a Floval Flyer race bike, as those are what I rode,” Kramer said, adding that SE’s retro and 29-inch bikes are re-connecting riders to their pasts. “The bikes now relate to guys in my — old — age bracket. It really amazes me how many guys still are so connected to the SE brand, and I'm happy to be back and part of it.”
