its being reported on ridebmx.com and thecomeupbmx.net that jamie bestwick now has a frame sponsor and its DK bikes?

Personally i think it a desperate accept to save a epic failure of a BMX company. i dont think that the great bestwick and all the dew tour and xgame vert wins can save em.

what you think?

DK kachinsky is awesome and there completes arent to bad

the way i see it its a one tick pony show over there at dk right now, they arent the team they were in the 90's that were the best team overall in the sport of BMX. doyle, winkleman, chalk, ramsdell,. thats a team not just having kachinshy, who is a beast in his own right but its the only one holding it down

I think that DK (much like Haro after losing Mirra) is trying to get themselves out of a low sales funk. They have a solid team built up, and make some pretty good stuff. Them having a relatively household name in BMX will help them, but in no way are they out the door. It seems that everyone wants parts from like the same 4 companies, (trends, popularity, weight etc) and DK is not on the front of that stuff. They just make good quality solid parts.

thats my point exactly, you got their pegs, are you riding any major components? frame, bars, cranks, hubs stem, sprocket? anything? if not then your pegs dont make the attempt to make DK relevant... sorry

swannanoa is amazing. thats all i am going to say about that...

i think its cool that bestwick is hooking up with dk, maybe bring them back a little. i'd love to be running all of those gold alpha parts theyre putting out, but i dont have the cash sad

i think that's great for jamie to make a move on DK , previously they had a great team such as CHRIS DOYLE, COLLIN WINKELMAN .

7/7/2009 3:27 PM

well it cant be that good if chris doyle only rode a frame and maybe a sprocket. seeing how thats one main reason they let him go, is he wouldnt ride their parts, and who would when you got Demolition parts that are so much better!

just about everything on doyle's bike was dk. the reason they let him go is because he started up duo with cory muth. and maxxis was a dk co-sponsor, and since duo was going to be making tires and grips, dk thought he was just starting up a competitve company. PLUS I heard a rumor that they let him go to free up some money to sign anthony napolitan, but anthony declined so he could keep riding for hoffman
