To produce BMX parts at a more affordable price for sale directly to the customer skipping out all the middle men to reduce cost to consumer
After numerous conversations with factories over sea's and a few prototypes of hubs I have finally settled for a design that allows me to produce good strong quality 9T Rear BMX hubs and a corresponding front hub at a reasonable cost. My first intention was to approach retail stores and sell my hubs to stores but after working out all the costs and mark ups the hubs would be no cheaper than those currently on the market Now, I wanted to produce a good quality product that more riders could afford to purchase. To ensure I keep the selling price to a minimum I have decided to lanch the hubs under my own brand selling directly to the public. Due to this I will not recieve large enough orders from stores around the country to fund my first shipment.
Thats where you guys come in funding for this project will go towards the shipment of my Hubs as well as pay for the production of a simple yet elegant website to sell the hubs from.
I will be releasing the hubs the moment I recieve enough funding and will be sending out products to all my pledgers based on the amount pledged.
As well as hubs I will be producing Sprockets (25t) and cranks to go along with the hubs but to be able to release these as a product line I would need to reach my stretch target of £12,000 if I am to only reach the £8,000 then I will wait until business picks up to produce the remaining parts as a permanent product line.
I hope there is interest in this as I have spent a long time trying to make good quality parts affordable and would hate to see my efforts fall in vain.
Thank you guys in advance and I look forward to personally packing each and every product for shipping.
Special Note: if My Target is Reached before the completion date 3 Lucky people that have Pledged or Donated more than £20 will Recieve a Personal Set of Hubs and Cranks Engraved with there name as an extra incentive.
Please note: due to shipping expenses until the company is fully operational only shipping from inside the UK to other UK addresses is possible at this time.
