Christmas is coming, I hope you all have good plans and get some time on your bike!
Last day for Xmas ordering is December 15th, I will be sending out after this, but nobody likes to get stressed! If you need something urgent, please email me! I’ll do my very best to help. I am a human and not a big company, so can be more flexible with stuff like this.
Master of the Gnariverse. Bold claim for some. Fact-checked humility for the SB165. A bike created to get after whatever you’re getting after. The slackest sled in our line-up. With the most travel. Coil-shock only. For the steepest. The angriest. And the most vengeful. Wherever you’re going, it already has you covered. At home outside the tape, beyond the norm. Taken on the trails nobody talks about. Trusted on the lines where mistakes can’t happen. Comfortable with all the chaos. Please when you‚’re puckered. Fearless of your fear.
"Race bred". It's not just a slogan printed on the SB130 top tube. Racing is the sole reason we exist. We've been pinning on numbers and pinning the throttle since 1985. So when choices had to be made on the SB150, every single one was made in the name of unbridled speed. See also: unabashed, unapologetic. Some may say it's too slack, too low, too long, too different. And we say they can shop elsewhere. But for pilots who know how to push hard and reap reward, this bike quickly earns the title of top whip. The ultimate example of breeding a bike to beat the clock.
Some say the SB140 never met a dirt it didn't like. We agree in spades. What's your pleasure? Drag a bar. Make an edit. Stay out after dark. Dust off the blueprints for the loop-de-loop. Try it. Land it. Or just stay at it. The undisputed champion of up to no good. Toboggan run, anyone? Happy to pedal. Greedy for more. Boost confidence as you boost everything. The mayor of jibtown, proudly wearing the rip crown. The SB140. Down to fun.
The rebel yell of the middle child. Fed a steady diet of super-tech climbs. Refined to perfection by the demands of blistering speed. The SB130 was built to crush the biggest terrain. But before you put it in a box where full backpacks and all-day pain define the game, keep in mind this bike was also designed to be tossed around and toyed with. Cat with mouse. No trail "too" anything. Point it up or down. Enter a last-minute enduro just for the eff of it. We say no one bike can rule all. But the SB130? One bike that rules.
Last we checked, "XC-Style" racing on a mountain bike doesn't stop once you crest the climb. Crushing souls on the decent is more than half the fun. And a hell of a lot more than half the point. The SB100 was designed for racers who understand this. Worry not if you find yourself lined up next to a weight-weenie on an "up-hill only" machine. The SB100 tends to dismiss such questions in a hurry. Designed to fly down as much as soar up, this is the bike we've always wanted to make. Short travel meets Switch Infinity. Precise meets capable. Time-gobbling meets transcendent.

Richie & Jared Drug story------
Been a little late posting this, as I wanted to see all the facts. In a nutshell, yes they failed the test. But, they are not aware of taking any substance, so it looks as though its been digested accidentally.
The outcome as far as I can tell, is they will both, or could both get a fine, or a ban. Length of time could be 6 months, however, this wont affect Jared, it could affect Richie, and some tales I’ve read means he could miss the start of the EWS season, but may not affect a DH season. This appears to be hearsay, full news as I hear it.
