2016 NAHBS: Mars Cycles Trailside Companion 420 ‘Cross Bike

420-friendly themes in cycling were abundant in the early years of mountain biking, yet I don’t recall ever seeing a bike actually become a pipe. Mars Cycles went there for NAHBS this year, making the Trailside Companion a functioning smoking device, carb and all. Personally, I think this is a brilliant use of a show bike…

Also, that spraypaint job is insane!

    That is the most funny thing i’ve seen from nahbs yet! Good for them, but did it work? That’s the real question.

    • Yep!

        Some sort of demonstration video is probably in order.

    The ashtray is groovy man.

      Looks like you tried to fix it, but still not quite working! So close!

    Peace pipe for mountain bikers!

    Woah! I spy a lady’s saddle. Tiny frame… Could this be the smokin’ ride of a clever lady? 8-)

    • Tim Guarente

      Yes, by the looks of it. Judging by the name on the saddle, somebody named Donna?

    No gravity bong water bottle? Gotta have options!

    Thanks john for the feature. This is my wife’s bike. The front triangle is stainless, which is what you see showng thru in the logos etc. There is no carb. The last hole near the seat tube is the hidden seat post binder. The smoking device is also full stainless so it’s smoke able. Works very very well.
