It’s not every day that we get to talk about mergers and buyouts in BMX, but this is pretty exciting stuff. Cinema Wheel Co., which was originally a brand under the same umbrella as Verde and DUO Brand, has been acquired by Blackout Distribution which is a distributor under the same umbrella / ownership as Kink Bike Co.! We don’t get much detail as to what changes will occur, but we have a feeling we’ll be seeing some shake ups and additions to the Cinema Wheel Co. team, and some new products coming in the next year. Below is the press release with the details.
