Change, love it or hate it

I don’t have anything new as far as product is concerned to share with you today but I do have some changes that you might be interested in.


Krampus gathering somewhere in Utah



We decided it would be entertaining to trip you all up and changed our sizing to a Small, Medium, Large type of platform for the bikes that tend to get muddy. I’m not saying that your Pacer doesn't get muddy from time to time, and I sure hope that your CrossCheck gets rode hard and put away wet- but just try and work with me a little okay? 

Here’s what that means:








Here are the changes for the 2013 model year lineup that I can remember off the top of my head. Specifications change from time to time, you know the drill.


1x1-Blackhole Black frameset

Big Dummy-No changes

CrossCheck-Micro Shift shifters with friction/index adjustability, colors for the complete build are Black-n-Wrecker, Blark Due, Frame/fork are Billy Jack Black, Hospital Foam, Blark Due
