As a consumer, I like to know the ways and means a company (especially in the cycling industry) came out. Regardless as to what my relationship is to Sean Talkington of Team Dream Bicycling Team, there was something about what he started doing last year that piqued my interest.
So, it’s a team, but it’s not a team. It’s a team for people who aren’t on teams, which makes it arguably one of the biggest teams in the world. That’s kind of like a dream team, right? Something like that.
When Sean began working on his Rizzle Dizzle kits, and his Mondrian Homage vest, we wanted to do a little something more than just post photos and send people over to his store. Below is a backstory, or a history as to what inspires Sean to continuously push Team Dream’s product line.
Moab was the spring product locale of choice for this year’s new product lineup across the MTB realm. Here’s Borealis‘ new Echo hardtail fat bike, using the new Rock Shox Bluto Fork.
Cielo is on fire this year! All their new frame offerings look incredible. The latest being their newly-announced Road Racer Disc. These new disc-equipped frames feature a Press Fit 30 bottom bracket, tapered fork, lightweight steel tubing, come with a Chris King InSet 8 headset and an ENVE fork for $2,495. See more at Cielo!
FBM’s long-awaited hardcourt bike polo frameset, the Ballista is now in stock. So far, everyone that’s ridden these frames have been really stoked on their handling, weight and geometry. See more at FBM.
Toronto’s YNOT has been working on developing a camera bag line but need a little bit of a boost in production costs, so they’ve opened a Kickstarter. Check out the video above and head over via the link for photos and more information.
Well, this morning we saw the Rock Shox Bluto fat bike suspension fork, with its tapered steerer and ample clearance. Problem is, a lot of the available fat bikes have traditional 1 1/8″ steerers. Although, over the past year, a lot of the fat bike offerings have converted to tapered steerers but the Salsa Bucksaw is the first to be designed around the Bluto. To add to the radness, they’ve added a rear shock too. That makes it the first full suspension – using Salsa’s Split Pivot™ system – fat bike in production.
Available in the fall of 2014, the Bucksaw 1 will be $4,999 and Bucksaw 2 will be $3,999, and both will come with the RockShox Bluto fork.
See more at Salsa and make sure you read the Developing Buchsaw post!
Wait. Huh…? Why on earth would you need to do that? Head over to Chris King to find out.
Yep. I thought this was going to be on the April Fools list for sure. Turns out, the Rock Shox Bluto is a fat bike suspension fork, slated for release in June. If you’re out at Sea Otter, Rock Shox has a whole fleet of these for you to try out.
