Bikepacking.com // Show Pony update
Bikepacking.com has the update of our Show Pony 2.0 prototype frames. In it we talk a little bit about ongoing development and down in the comments there is more info and discussion.


TD3 vs TD4, what changed, what’s better, what’s not? Up on the Rodeo Journal today, Donkey Boy compares his 30,000+ mile TD3 to his 4000+ mile TD4, and weighs in on how the bike has both improved but also is still just a Donkey.

Hit the website and play with the image slider yourself! It’s kind of addictive. 

We design and engineered the headset on TD4 for maximum versatility. By rotating the assembly underneath the top plate,0 1, 2, 3, or four routing holes can be opened to allow for any routing configuration. Because integrated headsets inherently allow more water to enter the frame, we use only stainless steel bearing assemblies in our TD4 headsets in order to dramatically increase the service life of the headset. If a fully hidden integrated (hidden) routing system is what you’re into, our frames are compatible with solutions from FSA, Ritchey, King, and others. If you think integrated routing is needlessly vain and difficult to work with, TD4 also supports that classic downtube standard routing that we’ve offered on our frames since the dawn of time. Rodeo frames are built to be maximally versatile and configurable for each owner’s style.
Kids, remember to eat your peas and carrots!



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.


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.


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.
