2020 has been one incredibly weird year for the world, and BMX as a whole. We’ve seen incredible demand for BMX bikes, frames and parts, but we’ve also seen a handful of shops and brands make the decision to close their doors. Earlier this year FBM closed its doors after 18 years, and now today Mutiny Bikes have announced that they made the decision to close after 22 years. The past few years have been pretty tough in general for BMX brands / shops, and we’ve seen a number of brands change up the way many do things and shift their budgets to keep things going. We noticed Mutiny had been quieter than usual the past year or so, which is why this news isn’t something we didn’t suspect might be happening. It’s definitely a bummer to hear and we with Gaz and everyone else involved with the brand the best of luck in the future! BMX definitely lost a good one today.
It has been far too long since we’ve seen a fresh one from Mutiny Bikes. Here’s one they just released featuring Maxime Bonfil slaying some concrete! As always, Maxime brings the style making for a damn good watch! Hit play and take it all in!
“French style cat, Maxime Bonfil, with a demonstration in control, speed and steeze.

Oh hell yeah! Now this kicks a ton of ass! Mutiny Bikes dropped this new promo for the Tom Robinson signature Villij frame an bars that are out now! This video features Tom crushing it in the woods, along with a bunch of extra footage, with some excellent film work. Every second of this video turned out so good, so hit play and take it all in. This video deserves all the views!
“In 2015 Robbo was involved in freak accident which left him with a broken back. Not one to listen to the doctors after being told he’d never walk again. Fast forward to 2019, he’s back and so is the Villij frame and bar.
This edit is a mix of new and old footage from the last few years of Robbo riding at Villij and Catty.
Trails rule. Shout out to all the dudes who are out in the woods putting in work.” – Mutiny Bikes
It’s always a good day when some fresh Jeff Wescott footage pops up! Here’s a new promo for his signature Comb line from Mutiny Bikes that’s loaded with a ton of great riding and some great tunes. Jeff delivered with this one! Take a look!
“The Comb Line is Jeff Wescott’s brand new signature line from Mutiny Bikes. Jeff spent the last 8 months in Arizona filming for this and a trip to Puerto Rico to collect some choice clips to finish up the project.

It has been a little while since we’ve had something fresh from Mutiny Bikes to enjoy, but it looks like the brand is firing on all cylinders again after laying low for a bit. Here’s a fresh video they dropped featuring Jeff Wescott, Robbo and Tom Russell cruising street and DIY spots, ramps and trails over in the U.K! Needless to say, this is packed with some great riding, good vibes and super clean film work. This is definitely a BMX video you won’t want to pass up! After you check this out, make sure you get a look at the new Mutiny Bikes website!
“It’s been while since we had got some of the team together. It feels like even longer since we had new product… to celebrate the release of the new Comb frame. we sent Jeff Wescott over to ride with Robbo and Tom Russell. This video documents 10 days on the road with the guys. Of course being in the UK, the guys had to battle the rain and many other elements but when you are riding with your friends you’ve got to let the good times roll!” – Mutiny Bikes
Also, if you are curious what Mutiny has been up to as of late…
“If you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you’ll have noticed that we’ve been a little quiet over the last 18 months. It’s no secret that the industry is in a bit of tuff spot. Which in turn, has effected our manufacturing and international distribution. Well good news, next month we’ll finally have new product starting to become available.
A huge thank you to Brandon Hoerres for helping making the new site.
We were founded back in 1998, from a deep underlying cynicism towards the state of the BMX industry at the time. Mutiny Bike Co. has been rider owned and run for almost 20 years. Independently owned and operated from day one.
Our goals for all of our products are to create the most durable frames, forks, handlebars and parts to help further the progression of BMX riding. All while creating aesthetically pleasing products with no gimmicks.
We are here to support BMX. From our team to your local scene, we want to make sure that BMX never loses it’s D.I.Y philosophy and keep BMX in the hands of BMXers.“

❕I have been on a Mutiny since 2009 sadly as of today I have decided to part ways with @mutinybikes ... I can’t thank Gaz over at Mutiny enough for everything that they have done for me. I sincerely wish them and the whole team the best! Not sure what the future holds but I do know that I’m in this for the long haul... ?? #bmx #ourbmx #mutinybikes #maderabmx #Bikes❕
Here’s a bit of news we definitely did not see coming. Dylan McCauley has announced that he has made the decision to part ways with Mutiny Bikes after 10 years with the team. Dylan didn’t specify why he made the decision, and it sounds like he doesn’t have a new sponsor lined up yet.
If we had to take a guess, based off Dylan’s ties to the Milwaukee crew and the Madera team, we could see him hopping on Wethepeople with Grant Castelluzzo and Dan Kruk. That’s just a complete guess and nothing for sure, but just the first brand that came to mind when we saw the news. We’ll keep you posted if and when we hear more about Dylan’s next moves… Until then, enjoy Dylan’s Mutiny “No Quarter” part from last year below!
