Founded in 1998 by Steev Inge, Mutiny Bikes was about change. Our vision has always been to make high quality, innovative bikes available at reasonable prices. Mutiny was born from a love of people and a passion for BMX. We stood by our commitment to putting riders first and keeping riding fun - that spirit of freedom and change continues today as Mutiny Bikes enters a new phase of life.
For the past two years, Steev has been pushed in multiple directions, dividing his time between Mutiny and The Bridge, a not-for-profit
skatepark and shop, concert venue, and student center in Missouri. His devotion to Mutiny and its team has never waned, but his increasing inability to manage a growing company while also directing The Bridge has been a difficult task. In the past year, Steev has continued to operate Mutiny mostly out of an obligation to support his teammates, customers, and friends. "We have a very loyal and committed core of shops, riders, and team members. That should not end," said Steev.
In February of 2005, Joe Simon, a founding Mutiny team rider and long time friend of Steev's, along with Gaz Sanders, a rider and bike mechanic from Derbyshire, U.K., began considering how they could help to increase Mutiny Bikes' presence and availability in the BMX marketplace. Joe and Gaz soon approached Steev about the possibility of buying the company and carrying on the vision. Seeing this opportunity as a blessing that would give him the ability to pursue his current passions while allowing Mutiny to live on in the hands of very competent friends who share the same dreams and founding mission of the company, Steev agreed to the sale.
And so that day has come. Joe Simon and Gaz Sanders are now the new highly motivated and creative owners of Mutiny Bikes effective immediately. They have already begun to strive forward with Mutiny, continuing its growth and innovation.
The Mutiny Team remains intact and wholly supports the exchange. Current customers will see little initial change other than new contact numbers. In the coming months, however, you can expect to see newly redesigned team model frames, increased availability, expanded
advertising, and a greater overall presence in the marketplace. A refined image, new look, stronger expanding team, and a powerful vision - watch out BMX - the Mutiny has begun...again.
Thank you for your time.
