Ok what is going on with them? Is dans just not carrying them anymore or are they revamping the product line? Maybe the refusal to make trendy parts is putting a hurt on them? Does anyone have an answer? I have always loved animal and would be deeply saddened if they went out

It's because they haven't jump on the "trend bandwagon". They keep parts real no goofy color parts.

I'm waiting for my favorite mail order to have Butcher 4.5's in stock. They've been out of stock for a long ass time.

Maybe their supply can't keep up with the demand.

I asked this on here like 2 years ago and the answer I got was basically that they could just be having issues with their overseas manufacturers or something.

I doubt they're going out seeing as how they just recently got on board with another US distributor (QBP) but that isn't necessarily concrete proof either, just means they're going to be more available to bike shops and stuff which is always a plus though.


I hope they don't go under, they're one of my favorites. So hopefully they're just revamping their product line. Didn't they have some new products shown at Interbike months ago when that was going on?

They are supposed to have the coaster, new cross lace rims, a benny l wheelset, and some other stuff come out soon. My guess is they are having it all made/shipped now and it is taking longer than it's supposed to.

All that stuff was supposed to be available in december. My wife wanted to buy me the javelin coaster for xmas but couldnt since it never dropped. And none of that stuff they had at interbike has surfaced yet Hopefully blaaaaaaaaa is right and the taiwanese factory just got a little laggy or something simple

During Christmas time my brother was going to order me an animal mutitool but it was out of stock so he called dans comp and one of the employs mentioned how they weren't going to receive shipment from them until maybe February 2015. So I'm just assuming they have been having problems with shipping. I doubt animal will be going anytime soon since so many people rock there stuff. I'd say its one of the more popular bmx companies out there.

I just realized the lack of animal on my bike. Sad. Feel like buying 4 pegs now lol

Called up my local bike shop 2 weeks ago cos I wanted Animal tyres and apparently they are on pause cos of financial reasons or something. They haven't been having any new stuff manufactured and are only selling stuff already on the shelves. Animal's Aussie distro has also gone broke so now we can't get any Animal stuff here which sucks as well.

That's what I want real bad. It'd make being pegless more fun, plus they look cool.

I'm sure it's shipping errors and that strike that happened is what's causing all this.

Which sucks because i want some tires and those Silva nuts.

same I love animal but starting to see less and less of their parts hope they don't go out, I have animal stem bar ends and tires, animal glh tires are the best I think that's what they are called ahah

3/20/2015 7:26 AM

I wouldn't be surprised if they folded.

This is all kinda going down like it did in the 80s/ 90s. First companies to fold were the ones that didn't seem to care (2-hip). Next the companies that weren't very smart folded (Eastern), then some of the legit companies got into supply/distribution issues and they folded (Animal, if they don't make it, and by all appearances, Hoffman).

|

3/20/2015 7:37 AM

Still don't have any dead on verified answers but I'm hoping its just slow due to the shipping strike and they'll soon throw out parts like crazy into the market
