Jeff Lenosky’s Prototype Reeb SST

by 4

Hannah is out at the Sea Otter Classic in California, USA. It’s a four day festival of racing and a huge expo area. There are races for every type of bike, but there’s a strong leaning towards mountain biking, and if you want to see new products, prototypes, and unique bikes, it’s the place to be. Head here for all our Sea Otter 2022 Coverage.

Lying on the ground at the Dual Slalom finals, this caught my eye, and as I was trying to get a better look at it, its owner came over and revealed themselves to be none other that trials rider Jeff Lenosky. He gave me the low down on this bike.

We don’t think that’s an original jacket from his trials days, though the colours are right!

The bike is a Reeb SST – Steel Short Travel – 120mm travel steel prototype trail bike.

Reeb is ‘beer’ backwards, and is so named because the company’s founder is Oskar Blues, of Oskar Blues Brewery (who apparently were one of the first craft beer companies to can their beer). Do we need any more reasons to want this bike?

The bikes are made in Lyons, Colorado, and this one is currently built up with 130/150 travel because Jeff is trying to give it a hard time while he’s testing it out. It will be a 120/140 travel bike once it goes into production.

The dropouts and main pivots are 3D printed, plus it’s a flex stay, making the bike surprisingly light – you can build a complete bike up at around 29lbs.

Doesn’t look light, but is!

Headline geometry figures are: 65.5° head angle with a 140mm fork, 76° effective seat tube angle, 435mm chainstays, and a reach of 482 on a large. Prices for the current Sqweeb start at $2,750, head to the Reeb website for more info.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    That looks nice. A bit like one of the Swarf bikes.

    Wouldn’t adding 10mm more suspension gives the bike an easier time?

    I reckon that as it’s a flex stay, this will show it can flex an ‘extra’ 10mm with ease…
