I incorporated Animal Bikes on January 1st, 2000 to represent and supply bike parts for BMX street riding for the new century.

My riding crew in and around New York City pedaled around all day and night finding amazing spots and getting as crazy as we could on them.

Whenever someone would do a wild move, they were called an Animal.

It only made sense for me to call the company Animal as it was based on the toughest parts for the craziest riders.

I wanted no BS or gimmicks to sell the parts and I have made sure we stuck to this.

Thanks for the support and representation from all the riders, shops, and distributions worldwide.
