Hmmm, good point, I noticed that too... but it can't be, no way Mat sells out... but if so, I'd guess he'd, like say Mongoose... woiuld have his department store line and his LBS line.... meh

Re: !!!!! Breaking News !!!! Hoffman Sells Out

i refuse to buy anything from walmart. so i encurage everyone to go get themselves a 5 finger discount Matt Hoffman bicycle once they appear on the racks there. while in sporting goods grab a childs T-ball bat and smash the entire TV/home audio display. from there, start a fire in the automotive section (try to trap as many people with back fat hanging out of spandex in the fire as possible). if any employees attempt to impede your destruction, kick them square in the dick/uterus, then expain to them that they should have gotten a job where their employers give litteraly one F**K about them. and not a; corparate conglomerate, with only the monopolization of your local financial ecosystem at heart.

Good point! There is always something nefarious a brewing when that fool is involved.

I have never seen a GT in Walmart. I know they sold to Pacific in 2002, but I've never seen one in a walmart. Not saying you didn't.

Re: !!!!! Breaking News !!!! Hoffman Sells Out

Well to be honest I ain't gonna buy a new Hoffman even if they aren't sold in Wal-mart, just not my style of bike. So if they do end up there, good for Mat. Hope he makes lots of money.

And also.... wasn't there a thread here about how we need a savior for BMX kinda like what Tony Hawk did for skating and how Mat was the person to do it? Maybe it was on Vintage, not sure. But either way... this would be the first step, get kids interested in the sport. And if that means whoring yourself out to "The Man", so be it. Even if 1% who but a Wally-World Hoffman get seriously involved in BMX, then that's more kids riding now than before.

Re: !!!!! Breaking News !!!! Hoffman Sells Out

Nothing wrong with a childs 1st entry level Bmx bike being from wal-mart,hell he might not even like bmx after riding for awhile.I would much rather buy them a cheap bike from wal-mart than give the local bike shop $300.00 for their entry level Taiwan made bike that is just gonna be neglected,stolen or left in the rain and snow because they are not interested in being a serious BMX rider.I dont like wal-mart either but I am willing to bet that most everyone buys their stuff from there including grocerys,they get alot of my money because they have the best deals on everything and will take anything back:D

now hold up a minute.....
just about everything walmart sells is special for walmart. tv's to food... pick up a food item and check its weight against the same product at a real grocery store. the one from walmart will be ounces less. perhaps try and repair something from walmart- you cant get parts.
ALSO- i agree with selling out- thats the whole point in being successful....IMO--- no one deserves bmx money more than Hoffman!(and Ron Wilkerson)

Every time I see the video of that Wilkerson spill I almost vomit...

There is video? Link please.
