About Bulldog Bikes

Bulldog Bikes is a rider owned and operated company that was founded in 1998, by Jimmy “Mac” McNeal, our company is a mix of multiculturalism, which blends the energy and culture of hip-hop & punk rock, with the urban backbone of New York City, along with most importantly the passion and edge of BMX bikes and the riders.

In an Industry that follows trends and leaders, Bulldog Bikes is an innovator that takes its time and does whatever it takes to design and produce a quality product. Our signature Bulldog “original square back-end” enables you to recognize a Bulldog bike from afar. Our Bulldog brand and Chromoly frame is our promise to our customers to provide them with a durable bike that does not, and will not break.

Bulldog is a product and company that has grown from the ground up. Since 1998, we have been supported by BMXers around the world. It is that support that helped make us who we are today, as well as the reason we work hard to design and make a BMX frame that our customers expect and deserve.

We are a tight family of fellow riders that are dedicated to the sport. Our success is derived from our “Rider Owned-Rider Designed” philosophy which promises that we won’t make a bike that we wouldn’t ride ourselves.

Bulldog is a premier lifestyle brand that is committed and dedicated to two things, our core business — designing and manufacturing durable, high quality BMX frames and our core customers –the underground culture and BMX market.

History


Bulldog Bikes has a rich history. Bulldog Bikes was the trail blazer for the NYC BMX scene, helping to bring urban BMX culture to the masses. In addition to BMX, Bulldog cultivated a culture of self-expression, fusing BMX with music, art, and fashion, all with an urban perspective.

From the beginning, the core of Bulldog was its riders. We discovered riders all over the world from both small towns and big cities. Bulldog quickly became known as a company for cultivating and discovering the next upcoming BMX superstar, taking these riders from obscurity to fame – creating opportunities for them where there previously weren’t any. Our riders have always been underdogs, competing against the best in the world and winning! Over our 17 year history, our riders have won many national racing competitions, received world rankings, finished in the top 5 in the Dew Tour and twice won the King of New York competition, the city’s premiere freestyle competition.


This amazing roster of past team members includes: Street legend Brad Simms; Olympic racing champions Shanaze Reade, Jason Richardson and Ivo Lackas; X-Games and Dew Tour winners TJ Ellis and Colton Satterfield; World Champion freestyler Alessandro Barbero, and Flatland legends Chad Johnston and Steve Mulder.

In addition to our riders, Bulldog has had amazing sponsors and collaborators. Starting in 1998 with our debut sponsor, Source Magazine, we went on to work with Toyota, Jeep, Dr. Pepper, Shady Records, and Make-A-Wish Foundation to name a few.

Bulldog Bikes - never following trends, always creating them!
