When Dale’s (REEB and Oskar Blues Brewery owner) bike was stolen, REEB Cycles was born as a middle finger to bike thieves and bikes made overseas. We fabricate all of our frames from raw tubing to finished bike at our shop in Longmont, CO. Our new REEB ABT OX Platinum tube set is 100% American-made by True Temper Sports to our custom specification, and the small parts are machined entirely by Paragon Machine Works, a small shop in California.
The tube set continues our desire to modernize American Made steel hardtail mountain bikes into the aggressive Trail Riding/All Mountain genre. The front triangle of the REEB ABT (#REEBabt) tube set uses the first American Made steel seat tube (REEBst) to accommodate a 31.6mm seatpost and 1 ¾ down tube (REEBdt). The seat tube allows more options for dropper seat posts and paired with the down tube pushes the strength and stiffness of the frame to accommodate the ever growing options of long-travel forks while providing a stable bottom bracket to enhance the accuracy of the bike and use of the Gates Carbon Drive system options. The ABT tube set is implemented in all of our steel Mountain Bikes, fatbikes & dirt jump rigs.
