A wake-up call is sounding in America. We’ve heard it loud and clear. BMX is a small space. There’s no room for racism. There is no perfect right thing to say. But there’s clearly a right thing to do. Effective today DK is discontinuing all General Lee model bikes. We won’t stop listening and learning. Thanks for sounding the alarm.
Here’s some news we’re honestly surprised we’re posting about now, and not years ago. DK Bicycles have finally made the decision to discontinue their long running General Lee bike after somewhere around 20 years in production in some form. They made the announcement on Instagram to let people know about the decision, citing recent events in BMX and the world that have made it clear there isn’t room for racism in any form, directly or indirectly.
Now, based on the comments on DK’s post, it’s pretty clear this has hurt some people’s feelings because they don’t think it’s racist and just shows love for southern pride. Sure for some that might be the case, but for MOST it has direct ties to white supremacy and a negative history that isn’t something that is tolerated anymore. Yes, the confederate flag was taken off the bike years ago, but the name of the bike, and the car from Dukes of Hazzard, have pretty much burned the image of that flag into everyone’s mind, and for most that image isn’t a good reminder of the past.
So, we’re stoked to see DK make this move. As somebody commented, it’s just a name and color and hasn’t hurt anyone. If that’s the case, then what’s the big deal with it going away? If it’s just a bike with a name and color it shouldn’t be a big deal. There’s literally hundreds of other bikes with names and colors, so it shouldn’t be that hard to move on.
It’s always a good day when some fresh Drew Bezanson footage surfaces online! DK dropped this new one featuring Drew getting loose at All In Skatepark up in Canada with a ton of bangers from big tricks to crazy transfers and wallrides. As always, Drew delivers with the goods and you won’t want to miss it. Hit play and check this BMX video out!
“DK’s Drew B. doesn’t mess around when it comes to video projects and he went ALL IN for this one at All In skatepark in Ontario, Canada. Creative lines and wild tricks all executed at the outrageous level that only Drew can produce.

You have a few more options for traveling in style… and to keep TSA off your back!
Anyone who has traveled with a BMX bike knows it can be a huge pain in the ass when you fly. The reason? Getting your bike through check in without getting slapped with a $200 fee because you have a bike and not a set of golf clubs… Seriously, Golf Clubs don’t get an added fee. About 10 or so years ago DK Bicycles released the Golf Bag that fit your bike and whatever else you wanted to cram into it descreatly through airport baggage check without getting slapped with the added fee. Over the years it’s stayed pretty much the same when it came to colors. The original was all black with green accents, then they switched over to black with plaid (Golfers love their plaid). If that didn’t get you excited, now you can choose from three new colors; camouflage, blue and black with red accents.
The DK Golf Travel Bag will set you back $139.99, but if you travel frequently with your bike, it’s an investment that pays off in the long run. You can get these bags from any BMX shop or mail-order that carry DK Bicycles worldwide now.
“Designed to avoid costly airline fees disguising your bike as a set of golf clubs. Made with durable rip stop materials. Features include; padded side pocket, rolling wheels, carry and pull straps, inner tie down straps and a plastic protective back.
Fits all 20” and most 24” bikes.” – DK Bicycles
