Tree Woodgrain Sneak Peek

Woodgrain sneek peak

Oh boy I do have a soft spot for woodgrain. The boy’s at Tree are at it again, and have a full range of parts available in this magically awesome finish, which lets be honest if any one is to make, it should be them.

Available in the next few months are pegs, bars, stems, sprockets, sprocket guards, headsets, forks and more all in this rather nice dark woodgrain. The more observant ones of you out there will notice Tree’s new Okan Fork which will be available soon. More on that one closer to Interbike….

Spotted – Fit Dan Conway Savage Line

Looks like Fitbikeco are rewarding East Coast shredder Dan Conway with his very own signature frame, bar and grips. The “Savage” line will be out later this year, and whilst we dont have any specs yet, I’m thinking those bars are for sure on the +9.5″ side and that head tube s looking mighty steep…

Update: We have a second sneak peak of Dan Conway’s new Savage frame thanks to Jared Swafford who is also riding a prototype. The frame has a 13.25″ slammed rear end with a 75.5 degree head tube angle, and it’ll come in bunch of sizes including a manly 21.5 top tube size.

Check out Jared’s bike HERE… Continue reading

Who wants to take bets as to how long before they receive a seise and desist from the golden arches eh?

Spotted over on his Instagram page, Shawn McIntosh is running a prototype set of Fit‘s new USA made FK Forks, and an updated, taller pair of his signature Bars, appropriately named the Big Mac Bars. Not sure the exact rise of the bars, but I’d expect it to be somewhere in the 9″ region. Expect to see more on both of these later this Summer…
