If you havent herd you might as well know now. I was reading the latest issue of Ride bmx and in the sponsor block it said exactly this, "Matt Bishoff is the new brand manager, replacing Snafu's creator McGoo, after he sold the brand to Hypers Clay Goldsmid."

Yes The Hyper we see at walmart has bought Snafu...

You will become one of the hated brands like Mongoose and parts of DiamondBack.

ooh hyper's a walmart bike. big fucking deal. spinner's signature frame (not complete) is made by solid in the U.S. snafu has been hated for some time now. maybe now that a company with some money to throw around like hyper owns it, and with a legit dude like the beard running it, hopefully now they'll rise above you fucking haters

Snafu will make a rise. I ran the forks for three years at least and i bought them off a pro used. my buddys had his snafu bars for four years now. with hypers cash behind them they should take off.

Snafu never really made good parts, honestly. And I don't think Diamondback is a terrible brand-- at least you can't find there stuff at Wal Mart. I was surprised when I walked into a Wal Mart a few weeks ago and saw a complete section dedicated to DK bikes and parts. Felt slightly disappointed, but hey... at least now you can go to Wal Mart and pick up a DK random wrench lol!

DK is OK. it is just that Walmart sells them so it kinda gave them a bad name. and i said parts of Diamondback because they may not be sold at Walmart but they are sold at sports authority witch is just as bad.

Totally agree some of these companies need the bigger backin to get more notice=more riders & so what if there a $150 model of bike & a $700 didnt gt do that for years it just goes to shows some peoples parents buy there shit for them& there in it till the next x-box game drops

If a kid gets into bmx because their folks picked up a $150.00 Diamond Back what's the problem? Then if the kid gets some skill, and stays with bmx he can move on to a higher end bike. It may even be another DB. their high end stuff is as good as any brand.

7/8/2012 4:27 PM

exactly, i started on a 120 quid diamonback from like 99 that i got at halfords for my 7th bday. it was surprisingly ahead of its time, topload step, widish bars, light, railed seat. anyway i got that out when i was...15-6 and pissed around for a year, learned to hop high, 180...bought my 2010 vex...now im where i am with my full custom

DK is at walmart too.

I see this as a possible good thing. It could bring more exposure to BMX by way of some well known brands being at walmart, getting those kids who have parents who think a bmx bike is anything without gears and 20 inch wheels.
