People are always asking us, "Where can I go and get all the stunt parts I need to setup my bike." We never really had a good answer becuase our industry is so young and not distributed well, but now StunterX is stepping up to the task.
Providing pretty much everything you need to setup a full stuntbike, StunterX is really offering the stunting community something of value: a one stop stunt shop.
Co-owner Jered Mann breaks down the details for us:
StuntBums: Who is part of the team behind StunterX, how did you get involved in stunting and finally start your business dedicated to it?
Jered: The owners of StunterX is Chris Lints and myself (Jered Mann). Chris has been stunting for around 6 years and I started 3 years ago which has become a huge part of our lives which we LOVE!!!! I (Jered) already owned a bike shop so it only made sense to start offering stunt parts and it has evolved to where we're making a lot of our own parts and even inventing and producing parts that never existed before.
StuntBums: Why did you think our community needs a "stunt shop"?
Jered: You can't just walk into any motorcycle shop (dealership) and have people behind the counter know what the best handbrake set-up or gearing would be for your stunt bike(actually, they probably would look at you funny if you said "handbrake"..lol). But we, as a stunt shop, know and have exactly what stunters need because we all stunt here...StunterX is the pro shop for stunters!
StuntBums: How do you decide which products to carry?
Jered: We carry pretty much everything for stunting even though some of it may not be on our site yet.
StuntBums: What is the number one question you get from stunters regarding parts or bike setups?
Jered: Mostly gearing questions - which depends on the bike and whether someone is more of a street rider or strictly a lot rider.
StuntBums: What is your advice for a new rider starting with a stock bike - what are the top 5 parts you would recommend he/she buys first?
A cage (obviously) lol
A good handbrake set up is so important. A lot of new riders try to cheap out on that which is a bad idea because that just makes one of the hardest things you'll ever do in your life even harder and that's learning to stunt. It slow yours progression down in a major way also.
Round bar or 12 bar
StuntBums: What can people buy from your site and what are your payment/shipping details?
Jered: We have the StunterX steel half frames for the 03-04 636 and the 05-06 636 will be done in Feb. Tank pads, brake reservoir clamp kits. Handbrake set-ups,cages, sub cages, round bars, 12 bars, rear sets...etc. We accept all major credit cards, paypal and we try to ship out asap on everything.
