The JYD is a throwback to our childhood days when you only had one bike and you rode it everywhere.

Year one we are only making 150 framesets, and to be perfectly honest we're unsure if we'll ever make more. 

It's a hard one to talk about because there's both a lot to say, and yet if you get it, a bunch of words are not needed. Since coming into our lives in prototype form a year or so ago, members of the AC team have used it as their bar bike, winter bike, alley thrasher, grocery getter, fixed gear off-road, mountain bike, and everything in between. 

It fits a 29 X 2.35 tire, is non-suspension corrected, has an English bottom bracket shell, a classic five piece segmented fork and utilizes rim brakes. We wanted something in our stable that was playful, capable of crushing any terrain we might encounter, put a silly grin on our faces, and was as maintenance and hassle free as possible. 

It's out of step with current fashions, and is completely unapologetic about it. We know we'll never sell thousands of these things, but for the lucky few who get their hands on one, it'll definitely become a go to. It's just plain stupid fun.

The JYD sports our signature headbadge, Hennepin Bridge dropouts, brazed on seat collar, hidden fender mounts,custom bb shell, one set of bottle mounts, and gussetted top and down tubes. It's got a classic look with modern aggressiveness and geometry that loves to hop and play. Build it up however the heck you see fit and get it dirty.  

The JYD will be available as a frameset only this September.

Yep, we've got a new t-shirt and it might just be the best one yet. The photo comes from a shoot that Saisha did in January of this year for booth graphics for our Frostbike booth. Paul, the photographer, killed it and so, in addition to the cover of the new Annual, we're using it for a sweet shirt.
