Thought they knew! Don't tell them what companies use the same vendors, manufacturers, or factories cause you might just break their hearts.

when you can get quality products to a lot of people, "selling out" is a good thing. besides, its not like DK is some small rider owned business. they've been in it for the money FOREVER. Like when they had 1800 CALL-ATT as a co-sponsor, and they logo was all over the jersey all their pro riders wore at contests

fighting over the internet is like racing in the special olympics... it doesn't matter if you win or lose, you're still a retard.............................

This is pretty much the only thing I have a problem with, it's one thing to try to get your product everywhere, it's another thing to do it after declaring that you are not selling to mail order companies for the sake of the small bike shops

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

GT on the left.

Been doing this for a while now.You would think that the bike companys would have learned what happens to a brand image when you sell cheap knock offs at dept.stores.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

10/2/2011 10:51 AM

They will pay for this... and most likely regret it... unless of course they are cool with being a shitty brand.

So hypocritical... pisses me off

new mongoose anyone?

""'''''''\-------/"''"""'
4 pc. \-----/ are still cool... but I don't ride them

10/2/2011 10:55 AM

They must've not noticed what happened to Mongoose and Diamondback which were once both considered to be legit until their stuff started showing up in department stores and sporting good stores.

I hate Walmart! DKs should be at local bike shops, not retail stores that don't even need a profit

10/2/2011 11:01 AM

Now that i think about it, they may be losing money and needed a way to make money to stay in business, Idk if the owners of dk are like this or not but, I think they think that if they can make more money selling shitty bikes than they can selling legitamate quality bikes they dgaf about what people think of them. Unfortunately, the owner most likely only cares how much money he makes, not what actual bikers think of his company.

If you were a woman Id bash your skull =)

10/2/2011 11:09 AM

Haha being from Ohio there are alot of DK's here, idk about other places but even before this i didn't like DK, and the fact they kicked Chris Doyle off after 9 years over the Duo thing proves DK is a shitty company, I find this funny.

Yeah. but you've got to think. They never sold their parts on mail order sites because they wanted to help lbs's. Now they just go and start selling bikes at wal marts? And, their parts will most likely get lower quality over time and end up like mongoose, where pretty much the only people riding the nice parts are the people on the team. well, now that I think of it noone has been riding dk parts for a while now..

Ok so DK is limiting mail-orders, but they will sell bikes at Walmart?
WOW.....

10/2/2011 11:25 AM

Really on the fence about it. It is hypocritical and DK was a brand I likened to my younger years. Pretty whack, but yeah, it obviously broadens the horizon for lil kids just starting out, adjusting to the more "core" aspect of bmx. I'm more disappointed that Doyle left (did he really get booted?!). Fucked

wtf? I had no idea...weird. Ohhh yeah, I guess I do remember seeing all those Kink Doyle completes....I'm a moron. Good fit, PA rider on that Rochester rawness. Welp, damn Dk way to go the Standard route and not really target the street crowd (Kachinsky, my apologies)

10/2/2011 11:50 AM

and Doyle's banger ender in "Safety First"....I must be a little fuzzier from last night than I thought...
