DK BMX bikes are a reputable brand of cycles and cycle components and they have been around for over 30 years. It wasn't until the 1990s when DK BMX bikes were actually born though. They started in 1979 by a man who worked at GM and helped his son produce a stem for a moped his son, Charlie Danishek, was trying to build. The custom stem became so popular among Charlie's friends that the entire Danishek family started making and selling custom stems right out of their home garage, under the company name "K & G Stems". After an Indianapolis race known as the Jag, the modern DK BMX bikes name was created which stands for "Dad and Kids" in honor of the family business they established right from home.
For the next 6 years the family continued to produce top-quality stems for cycles and finally moved on to a freestyle seat post clamp in 1985 that featured a unique 2-inch standing platform with grip tape included that proved to be a big success. In 1994, DK BMX bikes introduced their first frame, a dual-purpose jumping and racing model. Shortly after that they upgraded to a more durable chromoly frame that was specially designed for dirt jumping and also a very popular street/ramp frame in 1997.
It's now 2010, and DK BMX bikes are considered by many riders, both street and racing, to be some of the best cycles, parts and components on the market. They have models for all ages and each of them are specifically designed for different purposes and built to last with top precision for maximum performance. Some of the most popular DK BMX bikes for kids, teens and adults today are the Helio, Havok, Raimei, Effect, and the classic General Lee Series.
