Volume Bikes was started by Brian Castillo after he rode for S&M Bikes and Primo. During his early riding career, he worked at Primo in their R&D/Marketing dept. and helped re-brand their image/ products. Chances are that if you rode in that era, you rode a part or parts designed by him. Brian has always been an excellent rider who had a lot of input on the design and development of the BMX parts he was riding. Hence, Volume Bikes was born. Volume is a small rider owned company that produces high quality frames, forks, bars and bikes for the hardcore BMXer. Brian even has a little BMX racing roots in him and it comes through in the strength and lightness of his designs.
Soon after the success of Volume Bikes, Brian launched Demolition Parts, to make… well you guessed it, BMX parts! Demolition makes cranks, wheels, grips, stems, pedals… pretty much everything you need for your bike. Just like Volume, it’s all very high quality and designed to perform.
All of us here at MonkeyLectric love riding our bikes.
We developed the Monkey Light to make riding at night just as fun as the day, and to share our good cheer with those around us. The first thing you notice when you ride around town with a Monkey Light is how many smiles you get. Just remember to smile back!

Demolition started with a very simple game-plan of making high end BMX parts from riders for riders.... and to have fun while doing it. Thanks to all you guys for making our dream a reality.
I incorporated Animal Bikes on January 1st, 2000 to represent and supply bike parts for BMX street riding for the new century.
My riding crew in and around New York City pedaled around all day and night finding amazing spots and getting as crazy as we could on them.
Whenever someone would do a wild move, they were called an Animal.
It only made sense for me to call the company Animal as it was based on the toughest parts for the craziest riders.
I wanted no BS or gimmicks to sell the parts and I have made sure we stuck to this.
Thanks for the support and representation from all the riders, shops, and distributions worldwide.
