The Latest From Instagram

WARNING: We’re about to go into social media adventure mode.  @stevetheintern manages our social media and will be taking a two week trip (starting today) to pre ride the @ascendarmenia course with @jay_petervary before the race debuts next year. As such, there won’t be anyone around to post pretty bike galleries for a couple weeks. The only thing we will be serving up here until the end of August will be Vitamin A (Adventure!). Up in our Instagram stories we’re going to post a story log of the 1200km ride, and full disclosure the stories will be on blast - many and often (when we have signal). So if you don’t like bike ride stories no worries: just mute us until the end of August at which point we will return to our semi normal programming of dream bike galleries and wrestling trolls down in the comments.
.
We hope that with this little hiatus we can show you what inspires Rodeo, and the real “why” behind why this company started in 2014. We love making bikes n stuff, but we love riding more.
.
If you’re waiting for a bike with us please rest assured we have a STRONG team who is still at it at the home office in Denver, Colorado getting it done. We will still pick up the phone when you call and we will still respond to emails when you shout into the digital cloud. We care very much about every customer and every order that makes it possible to both ride and ship bikes for a living.
.
Thanks for coming along, and we’ll see you soon, live-ish from tbr Caucasus Mountains of Armenia!

Rodeo Spork was never meant to be an aftermarket product. We made it for our bikes based on what we and our customers wanted and needed. But when the first frame builder approached us and said “could I order one at wholesale?” We said “yes” right away, because sharing is caring right?
.
Six years on and Spork continues to evolve and improve with the demands of riders and builders. For 2022 it’s 125g lighter, stiffer, features full monocoque construction, it’s adaptable to 12 or 15mm axles, was the first aftermarket fork with dynamo integration, is now sleeved for easy internal brake routing, is now less expensive to builders and wholesalers, has class leading cargo capacity, and is ALWAYS IN STOCK. The list probably goes on but we’re tired of typing.
.
When we see all the new copy cat forks bum rushing the market trying to cash in we don’t blink, because we have one thing that can’t be copied: Six years of real world proven use. Silk Road, Morocco, Uganda, Tour Divide, Transcontinental, Arkansas, Armenia, All over Europe, Asia, America North Central, and South. Spork has done it ALL, and it’s the only fork that does it with a permanent grin on its face.
.
Builders, we’re small like you, and if you’re thinking about adding a Spork to your builds we promise to make the ordering process super quick and uncomplicated, because we hate filling out endless paperwork just as much as you. 🍻

When you google “Flaanimal 5” it usually tries to auto fill “Flaanimal 5 review”. But there aren’t many reviews out there because we don’t sent bikes out for review. We never have extra bikes around here for review loans, and we are aggressive riders ourselves here at HQ so we don’t depend on reviewers to test and approve what we make. We do that ourselves on our own rides and adventures and through our supported athletes.
But one bit of feedback and review that we do love is when we hear from customers about how our bikes are doing in the real world. That we care about very much! Sometimes we learn a lot from feedback about what we can improve and we use that for future iterations, and sometimes we just get a glowing review like this one from Adam, a mechanic and Flaanimal owner from California. We asked Adam if we could share his feedback because it made our day. 🙌
Thanks for taking the time to send this in Adam!

We have a limited number of Naked TD3 framesets in stock that just arrived Friday. A couple in each size 54, 56, 58. Also in stock are one or two Cosmetic B TD3 frames which are functionally perfect but have a small visual oddity in the finish. Those are $250 off frameset or complete build. For complete builds we’ve actually got a few bike builds worth of components ready to go too so just get in touch if you are looking for a complete build. 
.
Otherwise, we hope y’all are shredding the bike you already on this weekend like Mary Beth is! 🙌🙌🙌

Our Values

RIDE

Our bikes as hard as we can. Never lose touch with the fact that true inspiration for everything we do comes from time spent in the saddle.

EXPLORE

If we stay where things are familiar we will quickly grow stale. To stay challenged we always seek out the new. New paces to ride, new goals to attempt, and new people to collaborate with.

CREATE

When we return home from our adventures we take our experiences and turn them into things that we can share. Stories, photos, videos, and inspired products are the fruit of our labor.
