Deluxe – Made In PA Promo

Ask and you shall receive! Just yesterday I was thinking to myself, “I wonder what’s going on with Deluxe?”, and then what do I come across this morning during my daily perusing of the internet? This rad promo that Ty Stuy produced for them is what! It’s taken a little bit for them to get things dialed in and running, but I’m glad they’ve taken that time to do it they way that they have. Having Deluxe frames being made in the US is awesome, but having their frames being made by THEM in the motherland of trails that is…

Bike Check: Tyler Trueman’s Deluxe PA Model

As long as I’ve known Tyler he’s always had some sort of wild color scheme going on his bike, so I expected nothing less when he said he was going to be building up one of the new Pennsylvania made Deluxe PA Model frames. That said, I was pretty taken aback when he sent me a pic of his new build. Gone were the bright colors and splatter paint that myself and anyone else who knows Tyler have grown so accustomed to. Instead, his new ride boast all the color and setup characteristics of what I would consider to be…

2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide

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…

Flashback: TBVOcoloRADo

Ted Van Orman may not be from Colorado, but he’s one of the first people I think about when trails in Colorado come to mind. I’m really hoping to see more from both him and the Colorado trails scene this season, but for now I’ll have to settle for taking a trip down memory lane back to this bonus section from Deluxe’s Part Deux video.
