Current Limited Production Companies

I'd like to put together a comprehensive list of companies or individuals that produce quality limited production or custom BMX components/parts/frames (does this list already exist?).

The idea is to help support/promote small, often obscure companies that are making new high-quality, low production, handcrafted, and visually pleasing products.  I've noticed that most of these companies also offer custom (made-to-order) options, keep production in-house, are rider owned, and have little to no advertising.

This short video hits on the essence of this thread: https://vimeo.com/141268107

I plan on adding to this list, so please comment below if you know of any additional quality BMX companies that should be included.  Also, if anything below is incorrect, please let me know what new text should be added smile .

Re: Current Limited Production Companies

One of my personal pet peeves is when someone provides valuable information in a format that makes it almost impossible to understand.  Terrible formatting of the information is often to blame, too few paragraphs, no bullet points, random BOLD text.

Not only is this list exhaustive, it's so clearly formatted that any info can be gotten within a few seconds.

Truly a GREAT post and a lot of work went into this, thank you for doing this so selflessly for us.

Do NOT want to sound negative, but I thought JDB was having the new Hutch stuff fabbed over seas, not Made in America. His company still belongs on this list either way.
