Jay Miron sells his BMX businesses

Industry legend leaves the industry
Publish date:

20-INCH wheel legend and the owner of MacNeil Bikes, Ten Pack Distribution (US) and Metro Events, Jay Miron has revealed that he has sold the former two companies to his business partners Darcy Saccucci and Jamie McIntosh. The latter, Metro Events, will reportedly be closed down.

Having started the firms just over ten years ago, Miron announced that he will be passing the torch on, largely as a result of having to stop riding himself due to injuries, commenting in an interview with TheComeUP.net that it has been “difficult to stay around the sport, watching everyone else enjoy BMX so much.”

Miron added: “After spending my entire life either on a bike, or working in the bike business, I’m walking away from it. While it’s pretty scary leaving it all behind,
I’m super excited for the new life that lies ahead. I haven’t yet decided what that life will be. I’m going to take a while to relax and see what comes up.

“I want to thank everyone whom I’ve ridden with, partied with and worked with over the years. I especially want to thank Darcy, Jamie and everyone else who has worked with me at MacNeil and Ten Pack. It’s been amazing.”

Seventies carries the MacNeil brand in the UK.
