What spoke length do I need? It's probably one of the most popular questions we get asked everyday here at LUXBMX.

If you're looking at getting some custom BMX wheels built by us or having a go at building them yourself then you're probably aware that there are many different BMX spoke length options. We want to make the process as easy as possible for you. Under the length option on every spoke there is now an option to let us help! Simply select the UNSURE option from the length selection, let us know your rim and hub and we'll do the rest. Easy!

We hope that takes the stress out of buying your next set of BMX spokes. If you still have any questions then don't hesitate to get in contact.

That's a wrap! We've closed the doors and sent out the last orders for 2016 and its time for a well earned break. We're now on holidays until the store re-opens on Saturday the 7th of January. All orders placed during next week will be dispatched from Friday the 6th (we'll be offering 10% off all orders during this time to make up for the delay.)

We want to say a massive thanks to everyone who made 2016 such a great year for us. Whether you've dropped in for a chat in store, come to an event or placed an order online, we really do appreciate everyone who has supported the shop in some way.

2016 has been a huge year for us. We've settled into our new store in the West End, Brisbane, the shop has grown immensely, we've vastly increased our product range and we've had a new addition to our staff in Wade, our new mailorder/warehouse manager.

We've got some huge plans for 2017 with some major events, website upgrades and more delivery options but we're always open to your feedback. If you have any ideas on how we can improve your LUXBMX experience in the New Year send us a reply to this email. We'd love to hear your thoughts!

We hope everyone has a great New Years. We'll probably bump into some of you at a skatepark over the break!

Stay LUX!
Mitch, Ev, Alex, Wade and LUXBMX team.

Need it for Christmas? 

We will be shipping orders right up until Friday 23 December - but if you want to ensure you have your order in time for Christmas Day, these are our guaranteed order cut offs for Express Post:

  • 2pm (AEST) Tuesday 20 December - for postcodes in the National Express Network
  • 2pm (AEST) Thursday 15 December - all other locations (see below for complete list and detailed breakdown by postcode).

Important: Please consider either marking your parcel as Signature Not Required (you can select this option at the checkout), or allow an additional day in case the parcel cannot be delivered as no-one is home to sign, and you need to go to the post office the next day to collect it. 

 

What happens if your parcel doesn't arrive in time?

If you choose Express Post, order by the times/dates specified above, and your parcel does not arrive by Friday 23 December 2016, we will provide a credit for the value of the Express Post charge you paid on your order.  Just email us at info@luxbmx.com to let us know. 

 

Regular Post

We cannot provide any guarantees around Regular Post, as the system can be pretty busy at this time of year! So if you need it for Christmas and it's getting close, we definitely reccomend choosing Express Post.

 

Bike Delivery

Bike delivery times can vary greatly depending on location. While most metro areas will receive bikes within 2-6 business days some regional areas can take much longer. Please get in contact with us if you need a delivery date estimate at info@luxbmx.com

Dave Pendleton spent a little time in Brisbane earlier this year and spent a bunch of time with our new recruit Denby Chandler. This welcome edit is the result and it's amazing. Ladies and gentleman sit back, relax and enjoy the beast that is Denby Chandler.

Jam for Jabbs

Morayfield Skatepark, 10:30am onwards
 

To round out the busy weekend there's a jam at Morayfield skatepark on Sunday. Jam for Jabbs is a fundraising event to raise money for a rider in need who has cancer.

We're getting behind it with a bunch of prizes and giveaways and Colony BMX has been kind enough to donate a bike which you can win by entering a raffle on the day.

See you there!
