BMX brand goes to the distributor

Hotlines picks up Stolen Bikes

Hotlines has added BMX to its range of products with Stolen Bikes.

The rider-owned Stolen Bike Co is a manufacturer of BMX bikes, frames, build kits and components for street, dirt and park riding, with its headquarters at Wimborne in Dorset UK and their design/marketing office in La Habra, California. The company was founded in 2003 by Anthony Revell with the aim of making the best possible products at a price real people could afford. Revell still owns the company to this day, along with business partner David Wootten.

The brand offers a full range of complete bikes from 16” through to 26” wheel sizes. The range of STLN products also includes a variety of frames including the 24” ‘Gold’ and the team-endorsed ‘Legion’ with new signature team frames on the horizon. STLN parts range from the affordable to the exotic which include rims and hubguards, bar ends, bottom brackets, seats and seatposts, brakes, chains, cranks, pedals, forks, grips, handlebars, stems, headsets, pegs, rims, sprockets, tyres and wheels.

Dealers can expect to see stock hit the shelves from the 1st of October. For further information please contact Hotlines on +44(0)131 319 1444 or Respective area reps can also be contacted on the details below.

UPDATE: It appears that Hotlines will actually take on not just Stolen Bikes but all of the brands previously looked after by sister company Split Second Imports.

The firm assured dealers that there will be no drop in service due to the switch over: "What this means for you is a UK wide sales representative network that is never far away. The rep will be able to deal with any enquiries you may have and help with your ranging of excellent BMX product. This will also see the back up support from the Hotlines offices.

"We would like to point out that all the Split Second brands will be transferred and you the dealer will see no drop in service or supply as a result.

"Everyone at Split Second Imports would like to take this opportunity to thank all dealers for their past business and support. We are certain that this change will enable you the dealer to build on your successful businesses and ensure a smooth supply going forward."
