  • State Bicycle Co. Megalith Fat Bikes

    If you’re like many folks out there who toy with the idea of joining the fat bike wave, but balk at the barrier of entry (price), then these new fatties from State Bicycle Co might just push you further embrace the N+1 mindset we all know so well. What I’m saying is, these are priced to leave you some leftover cash while still being highly shreddable. If you don’t already have a fat bike, then the Megalith Fat Bike would make a great first.

    Available in two colors and either configured as a singlespeed or 1×8 drivetrain, these steeds can be yours for  $699 for the singlespeed or $829 for the 8 speed.

  • Moonmen Bikes #M01


    This is one of the raddest “29+” mountain bikes that I’ve seen in a minute. The Moonmen #M01 is a a 29+ mountain bike that is built to shred while keeping things loose and fun. At first glance, I was reminded of SE Racing Bikes due to the Landing Gear’esque typeface and Moonriser handlebars.

    The M01 from Moonmen Bikes isn’t your typical singlespeed 29er – there’s a lot of extra-awesome going on here. At first glance, you might think the chain is tensioned using an eccentric bottom bracket, but after a closer look you’ll notice Moonmen’s proprietary Mension System. The Mension System uses a turnbuckle / bottle screw in the chainstays to expand or compress equally.

    Not only will Mension tension your chain, the system is also great as it allows you to break your frame down into smaller pieces, allowing you to remove the rear triangle for easy traveling.

    Make sure to have a better look at the #M01 below, and head on over to Moonmen Bikes for more mountain bike wizardry. While you’re at it, check them out on Instagram ’cause they’re really cooking up some amazing stuff.

  • Budnitz No. 2 Titanium 650b Mountain Bike

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably caught wind of the latest wheel-related phenomenon in mountain biking: the 650b aka 27.5”. For years and years I’d been perfectly content on my 26” hardtail, even giving a couple singlespeed 29ers a chance, however, nothing really held my attention like a good ‘ole 26” wheel; at least until just recently.

    I was given the privilege of testing out the Budnitz No. 2 titanium 650b mountain bike and let’s just say it was really hard to give back after two weeks of straight thrashing. The bike rides like a dream and is ridiculously light, weighing in at just 18 lbs. The 650b is a wheel size I’ve been curious about in regards to mountain biking for some time now, especially since I’m partial to a smaller wheel. A 29er has always felt a little cumbersome for me and doesn’t exactly fit my riding style. As a youth, I spent afternoons building jumps and riding a BMX bike, so once I transitioned to a mountain bike, my bmx instincts followed.
