Cool little bike build vid that the folks over at Colony put together to showcase Anthony’s new bike and him giving it a shakedown at the Hoodrich Trails. I got to say, I didn’t know anyone still did the ti spokes thing.
Nathan Sykes rips around F.O.D. to promote his signature seat from Colony. The seat is a little fat for my taste, but I do dig the old school motorcycle influenced details!
Colony has gone and given Anthony Napolitan a signature product in the way of these new Bio Mech handlebars. Two pieces of heat treated multi-butted chromoly tubing come together to form a set of bars with a rise of 8.9″, width of 29″, back sweep of 10.5° and up sweep of 2°. They’re available from Colony dealers worldwide in your choice of either black or chrome.
Sprinkle a little bit of bike info over some quality riding footage; Colony has really cracked the code on how to make bike checks interesting. This latest one gives you the rundown on Nathan Sykes’ rig all while he roast the F.O.D. Trails.
Now this is my kind of bike check; 90% riding, 10% bike check! Though it does only highlight the Colony componentry on Anthony’s bike.
Follow Colony’s Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar as they take a little day trip to ride the Stay Strong Compound (R.I.P.) and the Hoodrich Trails. These dudes have pretty contrasting styles, but Cooper Brownlee was able to come up with a pretty solid edit and some rad photos from the day. Make sure you check out those photos HERE after you get done watching the vid!
We as trail riders have a slight tendency to ride frames and parts a lot longer than we really should. It’s nothing for someone to show up in the woods still rocking a frame with an American bottom bracket and press fit headset, (Shawn Shoener, I’m looking in your direction). The thing about it is that both frames and parts really should be replaced every a few years. No one wants to find themselves in a twisted ball of metal and flesh because something catastrophically failed due to fatigue. Take a second to think about the forces and stress that…
We get minute or so of Colony’s Anthony Napolitan, Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar riding Sanctuary’s interesting trails setup before they move on to the park stuff of their trip. It’s right after the intro and digging b-roll, so just click play to get into it.
Profile has a bike check up on Anthony Napolitan’s current build that features Colony’s trails friendly “Tradition” frame, a slew of Profile parts, and even some rainbow titanium spokes. What’s not on there is brakes, but according to Anthony they are “coming soon.” Click HERE to have a look at what he’s been roasting The Wetlands on!
Mixed in amongst the eight minutes of tech front end tricks in this nine minute edit from Colony’s trip to Oregon, is a minute of Nathan Sykes and some other guy riding the Backwoods Trails. 02:22 is where you’ll find it!
