Esker Cycles Summons Edward Abbey’s Desert Activist George Washington Hayduke Sep 13, 2018

Anytime there’s an Edward Abbey reference in the cycling industry, my interest is piqued! Back when Advocate Cycles was around, their Hayduke MTB frame offered up a modern hardtail geometry in steel or titanium, at a more affordable price. When Advocate closed shop, the owners began to work on Esker Cycles, which launched earlier this summer. Now, the Hayduke hardtail is back with new features, new geometry, and the same desert vigilante spirit as its namesake. Get out to the desert with your own Monkey Wrench Gang and see more at Esker Cycles.

  • Now I’m just waiting for the “Take The Other Road” All Road Bike.

    • hah!

    • a garmin update that lets you measure distances in number of sixpacks drank from a-z.

    Not a bad price for a heat-treated frame with braze-ons. Comes with a Wolftooth headset too. Anything else like it on the market?

    and they listened to their customers and put a threaded BB on this one. That’s my only complaint with my hayduke, otherwise perhaps one of the best mountain bikes I’ve ever owned.

    Hayduke Lives!

    This looks really good, did the Advocate business model not work out?
