BBG BMX in Quincy, MA
"Here at Boston Bike Guy we specialize in BMX, but also are a full service bike shop. We sell new and used bikes, as well as, all the good aftermarket products. The shop is BMX rider owned and operated. We are located near the subway, 10 miles south of the downtown Boston in Quincy Center. The Blackout guys are always on key and give back to the BMX community by sponsoring events and answering any questions you may have."
You may have noticed all the sale pages have gone through a change lately. These pages used to show every product and option we had and you had to look at pricing to figure out what was on Sale. Now, only products that are actually on Sale show up on the Sale Pages! If you haven't checked these pages out lately, I suggest you do!
Hey just a little heads up we have changed a few things on the website. The change that will affect you the most is the way products are added to your cart. Previously the add to cart button would only add the items to your cart in the particular product you were under. Now, however, each add to cart button says "Add All Items to Cart" and every button you see will add every item you have a quantity for on the entire page to your cart at once!
Check out the 2016 Kink Complete Bikes! These lovely ladies will be available in May, that's only a month away! If you have yet to pre book any of these fantastic two wheeled machines I advise you to give us a call or e-mail Reez today!

Circuit BMX in Pawtucket, RI
"Circuit BMX has been in business for nearly nine years. We started small, only 270 square foot space, and now we are in a 2400 square foot space that serves the New England BMX Community and beyond. Our new location includes a lounge, a larger service area with an area for DIY flat repair, and it includes space for BMX racing bikes and products. We may be a local shop but we are also a destination. We host many shop stops and video premieres. We have lots of visitors from overseas every season and friends from all over the country that come through in the warmer months. When I started the shop I wanted it to be unlike any other shop out there. I wanted to exclusively offer BMX products, and I wanted the shop be to welcoming. I'd say we achieved those goals and it's gone far beyond what I expected it to be. With support from Blackout/Kink in the way of shop visits and always delivering the goods we intend to be a part of the BMX community for years to come. Thanks to everyone out there that believes in what we do here."
There is a Kink shipment is here! We are very excited to let you know it has new colorways, new products and the same great quality you always see from Kink! Give us a call to hear about everything that came in and make your order. We are currently working on getting all the new product photos on the website!

We have been working on this new site for some time now and it's finally live! We wanted this to be more user friendly and just freshen up the look. Keep in mind throughout the day there could be issues. Please contact us if you need to make and order.
Here are a few key changes to the new site:
Our Current Guest is Matt From:
Tuckahoe Bike Shop in Woodbine, NJ
"For the last 30 years we have been serving the TRUE jersey shore by providing families with bikes from our rental business. Tuckahoe Bike Shop opened their doors in 2002. We now proudly own and operate four bike shop locations on the Jersey Shore. We carry a large selection of cruiser, hybrids, road, and BMX bikes. We sponsor a full BMX race team that travels cross country participating in national competitions. Our team loves perfecting their skills at our local BMX track in Egg Harbor Twp.
Blackout/Kink bikes became our distributor at the end of October; and we couldn't be more excited! 2014 holiday season proved our customers demand their product. From complete bikes, to frames and parts, our customers are knocking down the doors to purchase the product that Blackout BMX provides. Chris and I have established a great relationship; we look forward to being a part of the future of Kink Bikes. As an avid BMX rider, it means so much to me to work with companies like Kink as they keep the BMX scene going strong. I would like to thank Chris and Ed of Ed's bike shop for the opportunity to share my perspective."
We sent everyone an email today that has achieved territory for 2015. If you did not get the email and you’re concerned, please email email@example.com and inquire as to where your account stands. The requirement to achieve territory is 15 Kink complete bikes and $1000 in Kink exclusive parts annually. Having this territory will prevent any new stores from opening up within a 10 miles radius of your shop. If you did not achieve the territory, do not worry. Your account is still normal and active. Accounts will not be shut down unless there is a 12 month lapse in ordering.
Give us a holler if you have any questions and concerns.

Bike Depot in East Islip, NY
"For the last two decades, Bike Depot has been serving East Islip and much of Long Island, selling all types of bikes, but dedicating ourselves to BMX. We make ourselves child and teen friendly in order to better serve the BMX community. We encourage kids and teens to ride BMX and always help them by answering any questions they might have about BMX or their bike in general. Here at Bike Depot, we are proud to specialize in Blackout products, such as Kink Bicycles. We always have a wide variety of Kink bikes, as well as mechanics who are familiar with the product and who are always willing to help. We love Blackout products for their fine standard of quality. Never do we see problems with product defects, and our customers always return, happy to purchase Blackout accessories. Over the last twenty years we have dealt with many companies, but none has been so awesome to deal with than Blackout. They are a really great group of guys, always treating us fairly as business partners. We have even been so lucky as to host their riding team for a couple of special events in the back of our store. We would like to thank Chris and the Blackout team for, helping us bring excellent BMX products to Long Island."
A couple of us from work and a few from the area took a trip to Ray's MTB in Cleveland this weekend. Red Beard made a little edit of everyone riding. Press play if you enjoy BMX.

Maul's Bike Shop in Halifax, MA
"Maul's Bike Shop has been around since 1988 when Dick Maul accidentally started a bike shop in his garage. He retired about ten years ago, and I took the helm and have been at it ever since, with tons of help from Tony Long, Josh King, and Justin Gamache (huge thank you to you guys!!). Although we love all kinds of bikes, our priority has and always will be BMX. I would like to see BMX continue to be awesome for a long time, and I would like to see more kids riding and having fun. We do our best to try to encourage this. Bike shops are in a position to be a positive influence for kids and for BMX in general.
Blackout has been a great partner for a long time, I bought a pair of Kink "Fat Nuts" off of Zack at a contest at a skatepark in Boucherville, Quebec, Canada back in like '94 and the rest was history. Chris has been great, too... He knows what he is talking about and will steer you in the right direction with your BMX purchases. In fact, everyone I have dealt with at Blackout over the years has been fantastic, thanks for being awesome guys!"
