Nick Simcik ridding for Transition Bikes!

Sponsored rider Nick Simcik came up with a filmer Shelby Smith and put out this rad video of our Northwestern riding. A nice long video well worth the watch.


In August Nick Simcik and I embarked on a road trip to the Northwest with one plan. To ride. We met some interesting people and discovered a mountain bike community we had no idea existed.

Hayes Prime Brakes are here!!!

Hayes Prime Pro 2011
It’s here. And it’s the first of its kind. PRIME hydraulic disc brakes feature industry-first technologies and offer more power, new components and a better ride. PRIME’s tool-free reach and contact adjustment, improved braking torque and feel and outstanding ergonomics are just a few of its many attributes. Plus, its ground-breaking, high-flow reservoir venting system has never been seen before. PRIME disc brakes are available in Pro and Expert configurations. If you thought Stroker was cool, you’re not gonna believe this.

  • Improved Reach Adjust: Tool-free design that is independent of the contact adjustment. This feature has improved durability and aesthetics over the existing Stroker design. Additionally, mechanical advantage is fixed regardless of lever home position. This means you get the same power and feel with the lever set close to the grip as you do with it set further away.
  • Mechanical Leverage Ratio: Increased throughout the entire lever stroke, resulting in a high power level later in the stroke. This promotes progressive braking that is more predictable (modulation).
  • Hydraulic Power Ratio: 20% increase in hydraulic ratio over the Stroker Trail. Higher clamp force on the rotor is reached with the same given input at the lever blade.
  • Dead stroke adjustment: Tool free
  • Hose material: Premium
  • Clamp screws, bridge bolts, & mount bolts: Titanium
  • Mount washer, banjo, banjo bolt, pivot bolt, and pad pin: Anodized aluminium
  • Laser etched graphics: Laser etched
  • Lever bushings: Titacon
  • Pad material: Sintered metallic
  • Hose grommets: Standard
  • Push rod: Titanium
