Finding BMX parts is tough nowadays. Bike shops are filled with all genres of road and mountain bikes and parts alike but a mere mention of BMX is usually greeted with sniggers followed by ” we stop selling those a long long time ago” line .Well I could still recall that ‘ a long long time ago’ every kid had one or at least wanted one and these very bike shops were busily cashing in the craze. However it seems that now BMXes are now such an embarrassment that no reputable shop here are willing to carry them .Well not all; a quick search online pointed me to a shop off Imbi road called District.
I actually needed a wider handlebar to fit my biggish frame. The bars that came with the bike were a tad too narrow which I am told was in line to what the ‘flatlanders’ wanted. Well since squirreling on one wheel is not my thing. I had opted to get myself a wider bar which brought me to this place.
More of a lifestyle concept shop, District carry caps, t shirts ,clothing, shoes besides the bikes and parts .
Tastefully decorated , the place had a very pleasant trendy vibe about it ( if there’s such a thing) that made me think to myself…
Oh i forgot…the handler bars and grip looked cool though a bit out of place on the old school bike 🙂
