Here’s some sponsor news that a lot of people suspected! Nick Bruce is now doing it for DK Bicycles. As some of you likely pieced together when Nick announced that he left the Total BMX team to ride for a brand closer to home, this is one of those sponsorships that make a lot of sense, especially with Nick being from Ohio and DK being based there as well. Hit play for a short but sweet welcome video packed with dialed riding from Nick’s personal park. After that, you can check out a quick video interview Vital BMX did with Nick about making the switch, the Olympics and more down below!
“Nick Bruce comes home to Ohio as the newest member of the DK Bicycles team. As one of the most progressive park riders in BMX and an Ohio native, it only made sense to join forces with Nick. Nick built up a DK Phase frame and went straight to work at his personal ramp facility to create this edit. Look for much more from Nick and DK as this journey begins!

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.
