It’s about time that this cat was officially let out of the bag! La Source Trails head honcho and Compression mastermind Jeremy Muller is now riding for Deluxe! I think the term “perfect fit” would be quite fitting to describe their union. I’m buzzing to see what these dudes come up with together!
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…
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.
I had no idea how much you guys liked this top 10 trails web edits thing until emails started pouring in over the last couple weeks asking if I was going to be doing it this year! Truth be told, I’ve been nibbling away at it since the beginning of the month but all the traveling that I’ve also been doing slowed things down a bit. It’s always a pretty tough job putting this list together, but this year was the toughest yet. After going back through 2015’s videos I ended up with a “short list” of a few dozen…
We had so much fun giving a frame away last Christmas that we’re doing it again this year! One lucky person is going to walk away with that sweet Deluxe PA Model frame that we took a look at yesterday. You already know this if you were paying attention yesterday, but here’s the official announcement for those of you who weren’t. All you have to do to enter is buy one of our special Christmas Sticker Packs. Each sticker pack contains an assortment of five die-cut vinyl Can You Dig It stickers. Each and every sticker pack purchased gets you…
Deluxe has always been known for producing clean and simple frames geared towards riding trails. Their latest frame, The PA Model continues those traditions and also builds upon them. The result is a frame that is totally Deluxe but with just the right touch of modern features and details.
December 13th and most of the spots Deluxe visited on their Northeast trip back in the summer are still running. Maybe Al Gore was onto something!
This was essentially just a big teaser for the full edit from Deluxe’s Northeast Trip. If only all teasers were this good!
I don’t think there’s a single person who visits this site that will argue with the fact that Deluxe won the internet this week. I’ve always been really stoked on what the brand is about, and I’m glad to see the ethos that Mark Noble created still lives on in Deluxe’s current ownership. For this week’s flashback I wanted to revisit the early days of the brand, more specifically their first full length video release, 2010’s “Welcome to Deluxe”!
There’s one more thing to be thankful for on this fine day of giving thanks and eating turkey! Deluxe just released Ty Stuyvesant’s twelve minute documentary on their Northeast trails trip! Grab yourself a beer, some spiked eggnog, or whatever you fancy and go find yourself a quiet place away from the family to watch this. That is unless your family is the Halahans or Delfinos, then you all just gather around and watch together!
