I always wanted to open my own shop. I’ve been on two wheels my whole life. I love all types of bicycles, not just BMX. Even injuries over the years, I treat with riding road bikes. When the chance came to open up my own business I thought of it as, “The train only comes around once”, so I jumped on the opportunity. It was perfect timing and the location was only two towns over from where I was living. It’s been six years since I opened up the shop and it’s been better every year. The Shop is ran by the family. A family run business is the best for me, I know there not going to rob it. hahaha. Working with the family keeps us all together, it’s a lot of work and time we all put in but at the end of the day I wouldn’t have it any other way. – Grimaldo Duran
