Rest in Peace Gary Cook founder of Cook Bros. Racing

HoF_Gary_Cook_mxw460_mxha_e0
As one-half of the infamous Cook Bros., Gary and his brother Craig produced some of the highest quality bike products during the 80’s. Was one of, if not thee, first “high quality precision” part makers. Could be credited for lighten’ing up BMX a bit His company introduced many “firsts” for BMX, such as built-in chain tensioners and a “A-Head’ish” clamp-on stem years ahead of its time. With the selling of Cook Bros. (which still exists, making mountain bike components), Gary has gone in and out of the BMX scene, with CQP (Cooks Quality Parts), maker of a 2-speed system for BMX.
