From The Bike Rack:
“To our Bike Rack DC customers: We hear you!
The Bike Rack has maintained a long-standing and positive relationship with Bell Sports since opening our doors in 2007. In light of Bell’s recent acquisition by Vista Outdoors and Vista’s relationship with the NRA, it is our position that we must divest our relationship with Bell Sports at this time.
We’ve sold Bell and Giro helmets for over ten years now because those helmets do an excellent job keeping our customers safe. Unfortunately, we believe the NRA is actively making our customers less safe. The values of the NRA are simply incompatible with the values of The Bike Rack, and as such we feel compelled to join the NRA Boycott.
This is a decision we do not take lightly and one we gave a lot of careful and deliberate thought.
We still have many good friends in the Bell Sports Group and we want to be clear that this is a message to Vista Outdoors and not to Bell Sports. The Bell/Giro/Blackburn line is a quality line of bicycle products and the company does a great job of community outreach to the cycling community across the board.
Part of our decision involves our current inventory of Bell Sports products. We will donate proceeds from the sale of those products to Moms Demand Action, a non-partisan grassroots movement of American mothers demanding new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws.
