Back Bone has a bike check up on Tyson Jones-Peni’s United and Tree laced whip. Tyson has been rocking one of the prototype United TRU frames for the past few months, and it looks to be holding up just fine. Hit up the Back Bone site for the full parts list and some fantastic shots by Brendan Boeck of Tyson putting them to work.
Last summer Clint Reynolds, Brian Yeagle, Timmy Theus, and Tree Bicycles owner Sam Schulte meandered their way through the North East hitting all kinds of spots. Of course that included a sampling of what the North East woods had to offer. I actually enjoyed the whole edit but if you want to just see the trails stuff then skip on ahead to 02:27 and then to 05:07!
Tree has teamed up with Sun Rims to offer complete wheels built up with Tree’s Straight Pull hubs and your choice of rims from Sun. All you have to do is go to Tree’s online store, pick out your hubs, rims, and spokes, and they will build them up for you free of charge.
Tree just got in their first shipment of the the fat version of their popular Ergo seat. Just like with everything Tree makes, Sam put a lot into the design of this one and even hand sanded the foam for the mold. The Merged has a ton of info on the Fat Ergo that’s definitely worth checking out.
Spotted this picture of Tree‘s new Brian Yeagle signature t-shirt over on their Instagram. They just picked them up from the screenprinter, so you should be able to pick one up from your favorite shop or mail order really soon.
Brian Yeagle was onboard for Tree’s road trip to New York and shot plenty of photos along the way. Head over to ESPN for a gallery chock full of pictures from the trip including some awesome ones from the Endwell Trails.
Sam always has something new in the works at Tree. The Moto Bars and this new prototype top load stem are the latest things coming down the pipeline. No word on specs or when the stem will be out, but the Moto Bars should be available soon in a variety of sizes and sweeps. Sam’s running samples of both that you can check out over on the Tree site.
How about a little Brian Yeagle to start the morning off! Via Tree
The Tree crew hits up a bunch of street and parks around St. Louis before making their way to New York. If you just want to check out the trails action you can skip to 05:55 for a big session at Endwell.
When the original 1/2″ thick Tree sprocket came out I thought it was the coolest looking thing but way too burly for my needs. When they slimmed it down I was all over it and have been running one ever since. What’s crazy is that I’ve never had to replace one because it was damaged or worn out.

We had just added a new jump onto one…
