    A bit about us

    Welcome to our new website. We've spent a lot of time re-designing the site, listening to what you want and making the whole experience better. 

    You will notice that we use actual stock levels so you know when it's in stock and when it isn't. We have a fully integrated live stock system that handles stock from in store and online from one central database - plus we have live stock information from our key suppliers that allows you to see beyond what we have here within these four walls. This all helps to reduce the times you have to get an email to say what you ordered isn't available. 

    We know you're always looking for the latest stuff, so we work hard on bringing you hottest new stuff first. Available to order now with availability dates so you can place a Pre Order and get it before anyone else. 

    Our new Checkout process allows you to check out by creating an account, signing in to an existing account (your account from our previous site will still work), a "Guest" checkout so you don't need to create an account, lastly you can just Express Checkout with Paypal. 

    Finally our new shipping options allow you greater control on how your order is delivered with realistic delivery times - so you'll know when you'll get it. You get despatch and tracking information (when available) with all orders.

    Last of all if you have any questions, email sales@alansbmx.com or just call us on 01942 826598.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • What was referred to as trick-riding in the late 1970s rose out of the prolific BMX Racing scene. Small communities of racers – kids who were ultimately uninspired by the competitive demands of the sport - broke away and forged a new direction for BMX. By 1980, an experimental pool-riding scene had developed. At first, the bike riders jumped the fences and carved around the cement pools at night when the skate parks were closed. But as the vertical skate scene fell into a sharp decline, the bikers began to negotiate access to some of the parks to the south of LA, in Riverside, San Diego, and Orange County. A steep curve of progression commenced and saw this growing group develop their dirt-jumping and bike-handling skills into what we commonly refer to as vert-riding. Others took it even further. In the late 70s, Bob Haro and his sister’s boyfriend, John Swanguen, became obsessed with balance tricks and rolling combinations, casting long shadows in the parking lot of their local mall in Spring Valley, San Diego, late into the evening. Then in 1980, Haro went on to form the BMX Action Trick Team with RL Osborn. The two young riders went on to make history, staging the first organized freestyle show of its kind at an ABA BMX race in Chandler, Arizona, in February of 1981.

    The eight individual history chapters (preceded by a foreword, written by BMX Action Magazine founder; Bob Osborn) are illustrated with hundreds of previously unpublished, professionally shot images. This collection of rare visual assets was sourced from the archives of a group of celebrated BMX photographers. James Cassimus, Bob Osborn, Dean Bradley, Steve Giberson, Brad McDonald, and Hollywood Movie Director, Spike Jonze, all dug deep and supplied raw footage to the project. With chapters dedicated to the American Freestyle Association and 2hip Promotions, fans will read narrative from the pioneers of the competitive sport. A chapter dedicated to Wizard Publications celebrates the story of an amateur photographer, single parent, and fireman; Bob Osborn, as he visualized and created the iconic and highly influential BMX Action Magazine. The chapter also explores the creative journey of Andy Jenkins, Mark Lewman, and Spike Jonze, as they orchestrated a cultural epicenter for the sport in the late 1980s through the pages of FREESTYLIN’ Magazine and later, Homeboy. Support for the project comes from a small group of brands that were founded, or were highly active within the era, including Vans, Oakley, Haro Designs, GT Bikes, SE Bikes, and Skyway Recreation. A year of research and activity concludes with the social launches of the book in August 2017. The first launch takes place over the weekend of the Vans US Open of Surf, in Huntington Beach, California, while the official European Launch will be held at the House of Vans venue, in Lambeth, South London, on August 18th. Those who attend can expect a celebration of Freestyle history with plenty of project contributors and fans in attendance.

    Key contributors include :- Bob Haro, Bob Osborn, Bob Morales, Don Hoffman, Stu Thomsen, Mike Dominguez, RL Osborn, Eddie Fiola, Dean Bradley, Ron Wilkerson, Craig Campbell, Todd Anderson, Scott Freeman, Kevin Martin, Maurice Meyer, Gary Turner, Brian Blyther, Eddie Roman, Fred Becker, Dizz Hicks, Mike Buff, Josh White, Dave Voelker, Spike Jonze, Mark Lewman, Andy Jenkins and more.
