Firemans has a very loyal customer base, and a great group of longtime shop guys and bike assemblers. This family is what we attribute our longevity to, and the quality of service and bikes we offer is a result of these relationships. Thanks to all of you who have contributed throughout our history!


We want to recognize and express our appreciation to SAL CORREA – the legendary BMX frame maker who does our manufacturing out of this shop in San Marcos, CA, and has been making our bikes for us since 2000.  Sal is a legend in the BMX community, and has been manufacturing BMX framesets in the USA for over 45 years! He also has his own line of bikes SCR Racing (SCR COMPLETES), and makes frames for many other famous BMX companies too including SSquared, Clayborn, Gun Slinger, Havoc and Crupi. If you are one of our customers, you know his workmanship and product is second to none. (See STORY page under Firemans Production for earlier info on our manufacturing history.) The FM/SC logo you see in the center below is from our trip out to see Sal in the summer of 2023. We are working compiling a SAL documentary from our interviews we did during our visit, and the logo also represents the 20+ years and unique model framesets and Cruzer Legacy Firemans has created with SAL CORREA as our manufacturer. Visit SAL at @salcorrearacing and @salbikes on instagram. Thank you Sal for everything!

BMX Museum was started around the time of Firemans in the late 90’s. The owner GAry has supported Firemans from day 1, and is a huge supporter of all BMX – this site is an awesome showcase for BMX bikes. Our bikes are not true ‘vintage’ BMX bikes, but are designed in that vein, and after 25 years, some might consider them classic. Our customers have posted their bikes on here for many years, and it continues to grow. Please post your Firemans on there if you are a customer!

Firemans is proud to use Profile Racing USA made cranks, bottom brackets, chainwheels, stems, hubs, and other parts on our builds. From the beginning, Profile parts have enhanced our builds and made them look great since day 1. Owner Jim Alley of Profile Racing makes USA MADE bike parts that are incredibly durable and beautiful and last forever-an amazing blend of killer aesthetics and funtionality that no one parallels. We have a longstanding friendship with this great American company, and recommend you use their parts if you are building a custom version of one of our bikes. Would like to mention our old friend-salesperson Matt Coplon who you can find on instagram, etc., and is a badass rider in addition to working for Profile for many years. Matt has a great dedication to BMX, and supports and promotes it 24/7/365! Here’s some cool vids, etc.-

Matt came to visit us at Burnet Road Storage which used to be a drive in theater-we got to go for a ride and hang out, and here is a short article about that:

Profile Racing: Firemans Texas Cruisers Austin TX 2012

The local shop BMX PLUS! which is owned and run by Randy Niemann is a great place to have your FM built up or worked on. Randy is a lifetime Austinite, and has been building Firemans for our customers for years since the beginning. Randy provides years of experience, and can help you pick out the perfect build kit for your frameset. The shop is a few blocks away from Oat Willies Campaign Headquarters which opened in 1968, and to me the FMWH is connected philosophically with the old Armadillo World Headquarters-the whole thing as a unit is representative of OLD AUSTIN. Be sure to visit Junior’s Beer And Wine right down the street to grab some beer, and you will find the same vibe there. You can reach Randy at 512-206-6195 for all your PRO BMX needs for your FIREMANS or any brand/type of bike.  RANDY/BMX PLUS! Instagram

Firemans World Headquarters was originally a concept I was going to do with Joe Ender, owner of Monkey Wrench Bikes who built and carried our bikes for many years, but unfortunately he closed his location. However, if you are a customer/fan of Joe’s, and there are many, you can still go see him at the TJ’s Motorcycle/Bike shop where he works.

I would also like to take time to thank Vytis Vardys here, who owns OZONE bike shop and supported Firemans for many years while they were in business. They were with us since DAY 1 in OCT 1998, and a lot of killer FM builds came out of that location!

If there was an Austin Bike Hall of Fame, and I actually have been giving thought to creating one, these three guys would be first ballot. Would like to thank them all for their help over the years. It’s only through this type of association, and the support of all our great loyal customers that we have survived.
