On the bike side of things, REEB has been making noise with their own proprietary tubeset created with the help of True Temper Sports. First shown on the REEB Donkadonk fat bike at Interbike, the tubeset allows for the use of a 31.6mm dropper post as well as making tire clearance for the biggest tires and a stiffer down tube for improved rides all around. Now found on both the Donkadonk and the Reeb Dikyelous, REEB continues to blend their love of bikes, craft beer, and domestic manufacturing in a way that we can all appreciate.

Lesser known than their frames, REEB is adding to their line of components with a US made titanium seatpost, and a new handlebar collaboration with SMAC Innovations…

Built with the current generation of the ENVE seat post head, the Ti post is planned for release in both zero and offset models, each in 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6mm diameters. Apparently REEB has made their own stems in the past using Paragon face plates, so they decided to create a matching post. Available in different lengths, the posts will sell for $250.

Of course the Dale’s Pale logo on this handlebar caught our attention which turns out to be a new collaboration with SMAC Innovations out of Boulder, CO. Measuring in at a huge 810mm wide, the bars will be offered in both white and silver in high and low rise version for $90 apiece.

Those bars were perched on top of their Pinion equipped Donkadonk fat bike which was gaining a lot of attention.

REEB is still working out the details on the Pinion option which mainly stem around how they plan to get the chainstays as short as they would like while still allowing for clearance of 5″ tires. The custom yoke above worked out well, but it was cut out with a water jet thanks to some generous friends with the machinery. However, for production that’s not an option so they are still working to find the answer. Judging by comments from many show goers though, the combination of the Pinion P1.18 and a Gates belt drive is intriguing to say the least.

When I spotted these stickers on a REEB mountain bike at the booth near the end of the show I thought they were about to launch a custom decal program. As it turns out this is an employee’s bike and the company that produces their frame stickers has done one offs for most of the team. So for now, this is one of those “you have to know somebody” options, but maybe if enough people ask…

As always, the cans of Oscar Blues beers were plentiful.

A 24 in rear wheel with a 5 in tire would solve that clearance/chainstay issue…

This looks exactly like the Lynskey post that’s been out for a few years now. Lynskey making it for them?

Michael – the seatpost, like all of our products are built one at a time by me, in Longmont, CO. We don’t outsource any of our production, and we take a lot of pride in that.

The similarity is due to the fact that we’re both using the Enve post hardware, which constrains the design of the head. There are multiple other companies making posts using the same hardware, not just Lynskey.
