    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.

    Vic Murphy's Patriot

    This is part 2 of a Trilogy of builds I am doing for Alans, This is something quite special.


    This is a Dirt Bros Industry Trailpark Patriot that belonged to the one and only Vic Murphy, the guy who set up Dirt Bros. If you don't know who he is (Shame on You) head over to youtube and type in Vic Murphy bmx and get blown away by his riding skills.

    Anyway, I was given this by Alan to clean up and buy any bits it needed to make it era correct as would have been ridden by Vic, all that was needed was a good clean and a few parts ie- another matching V-monster tyre, brake, lever, cable and pedals. I was also looking for a Black front Odyssey hubs that I couldn't find for love nor money So if anyone has a Black 36h mk1 Odyssey Vandero or Odyssey Hazard please get in touch. As you can see there are a lot of stickers on the bike that have been on there since Vic had it, mainly of one of his sponsors, Dans Comp. When I was cleaning up the frame I noticed that there was a lot of sticky residue at the front and rear of the top tube where the brake cable ran, so I had a look around and it seemed that the cable had been held in place with either tape or stickers so I put Red insulation tape and the back and Blue at the front then covered it over with genuine old Dans Comp stickers as can be seen.


    That's about it for this build so here's a rundown of the bike and I hope you like the pics.
