Albes vs. Danscomp

i just wanna see some opinions. Personally I like Albes better, they have better customer service, and are cheaper on stuff.

Danscomp is pretty good, although last time they shipped my package with DHL, who couldn't find my house and made me wait to get it until 2 days after I was supposed to... Albes and Empire are good too.

I like Danscomp's site best.

Lately i've been getting stuff from one of the local shops but i go to Dans for clothes and stuff that the local shop can't get.

I've ordered from Staff too and liked them.

I like dans, but last time I ordered a helmet from them it came all screwed up. I was too lazy to mail it back, so now I have a nice, new, unused, and screwed-up helmet. I dont even no why I bought it in the first place, I never wear helmets.

Don't get me wrong Albes, Empire and Staff are all great too but i doubt Dan's has screwed anything up and not fixed it. Except for that whole T1 mess a few years ago. But T1 finally bit the bullet and is now sold at Dan's again.

Why support some guy driving around in a porche instead of somebody who actually cares about BMX? I've heard of plenty of issues as far as customer service goes. Eitherway, I'd rather support Tom, Tina, Todd, Pat and those guys than......Alloy? or whoever. Buy some stocks if you like Dans that much.

not to mention im a pretty firm believer that the people at dans knows whats up. I called them once to ask a bunch of questions about parts and they pretty much knew what they were talking about.

Well I feel i could have an OG tag since I have ben here since december 2004 (second account). Honestly the only reason I made it is bcuase I set a DC icon as my avatar. Then i wasbored at like 3am so i played with it in paint and i made a O with like a back wards C out the back of it when i tried combing too, so I was like oh that could make OG. Then when i did make it I didnt want to waste it. I realy think it came out like ***** and itll be gone when i fel like going through the user controls and finding my DC icon.

Well of course the workers are going to know what is up. Thats why they hire and train people. I'm not saying dans comp doesnt have decent workers, I'm saying that people like Tom and Tina and all the other rider owned mail orders put so much back into the bmx community. They put on contests, support many riders and other bmx events. I can gaurentee the person/people who actually own dans comp could give one **** about bmx. Infact they own CCS skateboards. Maybe youll see the owner out skating at the park someday. You can give them a thumbs up? Maybe even get a ride in their porche! GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

I actualy dont need Dans or Albes becuase their is a bike shop like 45min from me which is almost completly BMX oriented and they match dans prices. Not to mention if you buy the parts at the shop they put them on free. Its funny becuase the shop is ran out of a garage and is jammed to the roof with BMX parts.


this is thier link, you can kind of see how much stock they have in the photo section.

You really are one messed up person. Someone else tackle this one... it's too long and stupid and I don't feel like getting banned.

No really, please elaborate. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Suburban 14 year olds come up with some pretty funny ideas sometimes!
