When this business was first opened in 1968, long before almost everyone that will read this was born, the original owners had no idea how far it would have come. From a simple little bicycle shop in Detroit to an internationally know BMX superstore. Over the years some owners have changed, Some employees have come and gone, but our focus has stayed pretty much the same: do things the way we want to do them, treat customers more like "friends" than "sales", and we make sure we're not so focused on how big we want to be in the future that we lose sight of what it takes to get there on a day by day schedule. Competitors have come and gone, some have come from seemingly nowhere and gotten bigger faster but we subscribe to the old "tortoise & hare" theory: slow and steady will prevail in the end...and so far it seems to be working just fine. we are Albe's: bigger than some, smaller than others...and happy to remain this way.
