  • Who are we?

    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.

    If you have time please do some Reviews of the products you have used on here. 

    Thanks again for checking us out. 

    Alan Woods.

    AlansBMX Team: Bike Check with Karl Sanderson

    It’s been a while since we caught up with team rider Karl Sanderson. Hailing from Billinge near Wigan, Karls been running the Hutch frames and forks and racing all through 2016 around the country. He’s been riding for over 35 years and at 46 years old he is showing no signs of slowing down. We nailed him down and asked him a few questions about him and his bikes.

     

    What custom mods have you made to your bike? 

    None

    What is the newest part on your bike

    ODI ruffian stay strong grips on both bikes. Love these grips. Always ask Alan to get them for me.

    Whats the oldest part or part you wont change? 

    Probably the bars on my 20 inch, just swapped them for my hutch pro barsthat are a slightly lower height. And it would be the seat clamp on the 24 cruiser

    How often do you put together a new setup? 

    Only when I need to replace stuff, but the chain will get changed every race season.

    How well do you look after your bike, or does someone else do it? 

    Pretty well, I hate when stuff is loose. I always clean after every ride or race, hate a dirty bike. Wouldn't trust anyone else touching it apart from Alans.

    What are you planning over the next few months?

    Just winter riding at the BMX track indoor in Manchester. Hope to get a few skatepark trips in too. Also riding the mountain bike for some training.

    What is the thing you’ve been most stoked on riding wise last 6 months?

    Just racing new tracks. Telford and Scotland. Probably my best results this year. Had a session at Bolehills in Sheffield with the  renegade crew that was mint.

    What is your favourite thing to eat and drink when out riding? 

    When racing Lucazade sport orange, bananas and mars bars.

    Worst thing about riding?

    Loosing a race or crashing and getting injured

    Best thing about riding?

    Winning a race. But also having fun with your mates. That's what it's all about. Just getting out and enjoy.

     

    Karls Current Bikes:

    Hutch Pro Racer 20inch

    Mostly using Profile Racing parts

     

     

    Thanks for catching up Karl, and best of luck for the race season ahead.
