Thomas Hancock... You Will Be Missed


Today we lost another amazing life far too young with potential unrealized... Thomas Hancock was one of my closest friends, someone I had logged literally 1000's of roadtrip miles with and if you've ever crossed the state of Texas with someone more than once, you know each other. We had, we did.

We once coasted close to 100 miles on a desolate Utah highway with the low fuel light on and somehow willing the fumes to last until we found gas... Good times and great memories.

You will be missed Thomas...

Our condolences and prayers go out to Thomas' family.

Thomas Hancock, Utah 2009

The Edit1 becomes a reality...




Since the day we stopped producing Mobs with S&M getting an American Made frame had become my quest. I had no idea the issues I would face in having frames made here versus Taiwan other than price and material availability.

Everything from builders wanting $400.00+ to weld a frame, to incorrect angles and mis-aligned frames or just not returning phone calls for months. What's the deal with manufacturing here? Why is it so difficult to do here, what gets done overseas in days... and done correctly the first time? The U.S.A. was good at this shit at one point... Henry Ford wrote the book on manufacturing didn't he?

That's what I miss about S&M... Chris and Jason have built a manufacturing shop in the states that can build quality straight and true frames the first time. Props to them for that...

So, after literally years of trying to find a frame builder in the US that I could count on for the following: 

A. Getting material when needed
B. A builder who can build straight and true frames consistently
C. Reasonable cost
D. Availability

... I'm stoked I finally have some real progress in my quest... 
I'll get off my soapbox and on to why we're here...

Rick Nolte Vs. Lombard Street

Rick Nolte is one of my best friends and favorite people to watch ride. He has unbelievable bike control and can just flow around on one wheel... front or back whenever he wants. It's rad.

Rick is off his bike right now due to illness but we all wish him the best and a speedy recovery... 

~Can't wait to ride with you Rick~

Enjoy!!!
