    Durango Bike Works info?

    Scored this Durango Bike Works today. Easton AL tubing. From what I gather, they were a small company run out of Durango (obviously) but may have also be related to BADD BMX? It's a cool find for me b/c I lived in Durango in the early 2000's and that's when I started MTBing.

    Interesting that all the parts are LX/DX/RST/Tektro. But the frame is in good shape. I'm having a hard time finding any info on this model or company. No SN seen yet. Does anyone have anymore info, history, catalog scans...

    That's really cool. Durango Bike Works was / is BMX legend Robbie Rupe.

    Rupe was a welder for Yeti in Durango and struck out on his own and formed DBW in 1992. He was DBW until 2000 or so and then moved to Socal and build under various names such as Canyon and Define Cycles. He's currently reforming the DBW brand here in Durango. Great guy. I did a podcast with him a few months ago that you can check out on iTunes.
