Tern

We are Cyclists. We’re a pretty varied collection of personalities but we all share the fundamental belief that cycling is central to a healthy sustainable future. So although we use our bikes in different ways — weekend rides with our kids, triathlons, BMX competitions, or every day commuting to work — we all share the same love of cycling.

We are Diverse. In the age of the Internet and open borders, people and ideas are co-mingling with stunning speed. Our company is a reflection of this diverse new world, a richly chaotic crash of different ethnicities, nationalities, and cultural backgrounds, that ensures that our point of view is seasoned by many different kinds of eyes and our product, tested in all kinds of conditions. We have team members throughout the world, in offices in Taipei, Taiwan; Austin, Texas; Los Angeles, California; Humboldt, California; Bend, Oregon; London, England; Turku, Finland; Stuttgart, Germany; Shanghai, China; and Schaffhausen, Switzerland — just about every time zone. Twenty-four hours a day, in some part of the world, we are designing, testing, and riding our product.

We are Environmentally-minded. A commitment to sustainability is central to who we are. It starts with the product we make — bicycles — which are the ultimate high efficiency vehicle. It also extends to how we make our products — made from quality materials and designed to be serviceable rather than land-fillable. And we are constantly searching for ways to reduce our impact, like minimizing packaging, specifying recycled cardboard, and reducing use of harmful chemicals like chromium. It also extends to how we all get to work — 15% of us now get to work by bike or walking; 75% of us take bus, train or scooter; and only 10% of us drive to work. But we can still do a lot better, and that’s something we’ll be working on.

We are Committed to improving things. We will give at least 1% of our profits, every year, to environmental or social causes. We all want to live in a world with clean water, clean air, and safe food. But with things going the way they are, it’s getting harder and harder. We need to work to protect our planet and we need to support the individuals and groups that are bearing the brunt of that responsibility.

We are Tern.

MirraCo

Founded in 2006 by BMX freestyle legend Dave Mirra, Mirraco Bike Company sells all manner of BMX race and stunt bicycles worldwide in a wide range of prices. On a BMX bike you can be a kid no matter your age. Freestyle superstar Dave Mirra knows that better than anyone. He’s won gold medals every year of the X-Games, Disney’s extreme sport competition. Still going strong in his thirties, he started racing when he was 5. No wonder Mirraco Bike, the company he founded in 2006, says, “Start ‘em young” and sells a version of their competition-winning Black Pearl model in an 18” size for kids.

BMX means Bicycle Motorcross, and kids in California in the 1970s started the sport when they put knobby tires and motorcycle handlebars on their Sting Rays to imitate motorcycle dirt racers. Soon after, a group of San Diego teenagers involved with an early BMX magazine started performing outrageous bike tricks at a concrete skateboard park, and Freestyle was born.

- And they know: Only the specialized trade can ensure both.
