Founded in 1987 S&M Bikes has been in the business for 25 years and in that time the company has proudly produced a line of BMX bikes that are made in the USA. Founded by Greg Scott and Chris Moeller when the pair were still teenagers they opted for the name S&M over M&S or SAM – thinking S&M sounded better.
With its now somewhat tongue in cheek moniker the two entered the market with a frame they called the K-9 Design. The unique part of this is that Chris and Scott were making frames in California just as many BMX companies were moving to overseas production. While Scott left the company in 1991, Chris Moeller has managed to create a very successful bike company – one that remains independent and proud of it.
Among the company’s offerings are custom frames made to the individual order. Each frame is available with a different set of options. Customers can order a base model and just about everything to the paint scheme is produced in the US of A!
Today S&M Bikes produces a line of products including frames, bars, forks and stems, and most of it is made in the United States.
