Episode 2 of the Rodeo Podcast is up. This time around we ramble around profound topics such as “man the Flaanimal 5 is taking a long time” and “why make kits when everyone else already makes good kits?”. @dropbarsondirt joins to talk about being both our junior and senior bike tech, why parts are impossible to find, and his beard. @kaizergilroy handles MC duties with his silky voice, @hopkins.jpeg is our mix master, and @stevetheintern sorta just talks too much. Check the embed on our site or on your favorite podcasting platform once it percolates through.

Across town the folks at @flux.customs are deep in Flaanimal coating this week. We’re proud to have made local finishing the only factory paint option for this frameset. By offering a Naked (black) option on the base frameset we kept pricing very close to 4.1, thus not abandoning the market tier that the frame was born at. Decals at no cost also makes personalizing affordable. But we felt that the feature set, build quality, and value of the frameset could support the not insignificant price jump to USA Cerakoting for those that could afford it. USA coating also made our inventory much simpler. No longer did we have to guess how many of each color to paint. Now all frames are born naked and stocked naked until purchased. This helps make sure everyone gets exactly the bike in exactly the color they want - until we run out of frames for the year... but that’s a whole other discussion. ;)
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.
