Dynacraft BSC, Inc., the U.S. bicycle distributor, entered into an exclusive licensing partnership with skateboarding legend and action sports pioneer, Tony Hawk. Under terms of this agreement, Dynacraft will develop several new lines of bicycles under the "Tony Hawk" brand. The line will debut at this year's Interbike show in Las Vegas at the end of September and be available in retail stores beginning Spring 2008.
The deal was brokered by IP Chemistry, a division of the Dimensional Branding Group. Dynacraft is planning two different series of "Tony Hawk" products designed for its many clients. "The Tony Hawk HuckJam Series" will be created for Dynacraft's mass merchandise customers. "The Tony Hawk Signature Series", being developed by Dynacraft's recently launched Specialty Retail Group, is for sporting goods chains and other specialty retail customers.
I have an announcement that is bittersweet in that our dear friend and coworker for the past 12 years Page Hussey is departing Hoffman Enterprises to pursue a dream of becoming one of Edmond's (OK) finest. Yes, Page told us 3+ years ago that he really wanted to be a police officer and started to go to school at night. Back then, I told Page that he had a job here at Hoffman for as long as he needed until he reached his goal and he just found out that he was accepted to the police force in our hometown. The call came to him just last week and he has to be ready to go on July 8. It's sudden, but such is the way of the police academy.
We love Page and are really happy that he has found what he wants. We are sad to see him go, but are very happy for him. It is exceptionally good that he will be staying in Edmond.
Page will be working with us until he departs for training, but to help in the transition, you should contact April Mays for any further
When BMX Business News stopped publishing there was no trade magazine for BMX. What made you decide to start one up? - James and I had been talking about several ideas towards the end of business news that we thought could help save it- but basically, the ship had sailed. We thought we had some great ideas for putting out a trade mag that addressed the current state of BMX, and also was accessible to the smaller, progressive companies that are pushing things. We decided to start one up because we know it’s important and we knew we could do it.
DK wants to officially welcome Nina Buitrago to our pro team. We have come to know Nina over the years, her having done shows with the stunt team and feel she is a perfect fit here. Nina has the ability to shred and even more ability to inspire. We are incredibly excited to have Nina on DK. Teammate Brian Kachinsky says it best: "Nina has amazed me over the years. Being the first girl to do a handrail as well as a long-time Chenga local, we've all seen that Nina has skills no matter what she chooses to ride. Between traveling, riding, and reading her 'zine I've been privileged to call her a friend but its truly an honor to now be able to call her my teammate. Welcome to DK Nina!"
Some of you might know him as the loud one, some will know him as a caretaker. We all know this guy knows how to enjoy his weekends, but most of all he has been a very successful BMX team manager for Vans. He has put together one of the most respected teams out there, with a greater variety of riders then most. He takes care of his riders like they were his own kids and manages to get them on covers on a monthly basis, worldwide. With all this said, let's find out what "Bad boy" Badders is really all about.

Well after 353245 late night hours the new Albes.com is up and running. For the most part it works pretty much the same it's just a way different look. While we were messing around under the hood we added a few cool features. One new feature is the ability to create "Wish Lists" of all your favorite products to save and / or e-mail to somebody you may be able to sucker into buying the stuff for you.
In order to celebrate the move, we threw a grand opening party on April 14th. About a hundred people showed up on a sunny Saturday afternoon to check out the new shop. We had free drinks/snacks, a ton of special offers and there was also a 50€ gift certificate up for grabs for whoever could guess the exact weight of our infamous tandem BMX-bike. Stephan Goetz out of Regensburg came out as the lucky winner. Congratulations! Later in the afternoon everyone ventured over to the Lohhof skate park, which is a mere five minute bike-ride away from the shop. The park got pretty crowded, but the sesh still had a nice chill atmosphere and everyone found enough room to ride. The riding that went down was awesome and it was good to see a lot of younger kids shred the course together with all the locals from Munich (Perry Petermueller, the Wildner bros, Flotho, Daniel Tinhof, Ed Steen and Philip Koelsch). The day ended with a free bar-b-q and more free drinks. Thanks to everyone for coming out and making a grand opening a fun day! It’s greatly appreciated!
