What about the bike? Chris Currie from Speedgoat explains his philosophy this way: “In addition to our usual high standards, we have a few important guidelines for how our Pink Bikes are put together. First, the bike should include at least a few components you just can’t get anywhere else. Second, it should be pink. And finally, it should be nicer than most of the other bicycles in the world.”
Chris went on to describe the specifics of this year’s Pink Bike: “We could never create a bike this amazing without our sponsors, and this year we’d like to thank Niner for getting us their phenomenal new Jet 9 frame before it was even available to the public. Fox contributed an F29 suspension fork to the project. Industry Nine and NoTubes.com created a custom Ultralite set of wheels. Ritchey provided the stem, carbon bar, and post, while Hope provided the brakes, headset, and seatpost clamp. This year’s graphics and paint work are better than ever, and we’d like to thank the man behind the paint gun, Darin, at 2Wheeler Customs. We finished the bike off with an XTR drivetrain, WTB saddle, and some fine Continental Mountain King tires.”
