Matty C’s Tangerine 29er Single Speed is the first mountain bike I built in Park City. After many years of furious abuse, hard riding, and wet put-aways, Matt thought this cream-puff deserved a new coat of powder. Let’s check the past and see where we came from. Slack, low, and stubby. Slacker steer tube, with a low stand over height, and short chain stays. I still like all that stuff, it’s shred ready i.e. more stable at speeds and quicker around turns.
The True Temper, Ox Platinum and Verus HT tubes continue to give this thoroughbred, trail compliance, wind up power, and Matt smiles. Collars and gussets for strength, Paragon sliding drop for versatility and sex appeal. The hand cut head badge is still an option if silver isn’t your thing.
K H’s murdered out SS 29er is so ready to attack it vibrates. Built around my favorite high-rollin’ geometry—69.5° Steerer tube and 72° seat tube—this monster will carve up tasty single track.
- As with all Lucid Cycles, a custom selection of American-made True Temper steel provides a unique blend of performance and compliance
- Meaty, mud-covered tires rotate freely thanks to shapely, clearance-boosting stays and a wide 73mm bottom bracket
- The business end of this bad boy sees one of the sexier ways to tension a chain: PMW stainless steel sliding dropouts
- Gussets and collars in all the right places ensure big-mountain reliability—what we call: Wasatch Strength
- Durable finish by Steel Coating
I raced BMX in the early eighties, and boy does this bike remind me of my first Hutch and it’s single-speed simplicity.
Built around a 73mm bottom bracket with a 69.5° head-tube angle, a 72° seat-tube angle, and 450mm chainstays, this surefooted playmate crests ultra-techy climbs with ease—yet shames squishy, soulless all-mountain rigs when pointed downhill. With a cockpit fully adorned with choice bits from Chris King and Thompson, the BMX dream weighs in at 23.75lb complete. Not bad for AMERICAN steel and a welcome lack of TAIWANESE aluminum.
