Hot New Color and Spec of Mr. Pink and Electric Queen

PinkClassiclifestyle1

Howdy folks, 
Happy Monday! Today we're dropping some good news on you in the form of the return of the steel fork Mr. Pink and a new color and spec of the elusive Electric Queen. 

Both models are in stock right now on our dealer's floors so if they move you, no need to wait. 

Let's jump right in:

Mr. Pink Classic
You spoke, and we listened. A few years back, when we switched over to a carbon fork on the Mr. Pink there were a good number of you who were bummed out by this development. While a carbon fork is without a doubt lighter, there are many riders out there who believe in the ride quality and looks of a steel fork. I (Jeff) count myself among them. When I’m out there on the bike really moving, I love nothing more than to gaze upon my fork blades and see them moving, soaking up bumps and irregularities — working for me.

So, for you purists out there, we decided to bring back the steel fork Mr. Pink since there’s really not much else like it out there. Happily, the steel fork also costs less than the carbon, and since Shimano just improved the function, quality, and aesthetics of their venerable Tiagra group it made sense to combine these things into the most affordable Mr. Pink yet: The Mr. Pink Classic. Coming in at $1799 for the complete and $999 for the frameset.

And...

Electric Queen Cyan Splatter

EQlifestyle1

We are also happy to release a brand new spec, color, and rigid fork option for our trail slaying Electric Queen. The new paint job is a very classy — but still wild — cyan blue splatter over black. Party up front, business in the rear. The gearing moves from 11 to 12 speed SRAM NX Eagle for a super wide range, and in really big news, we’re offering a painted to match five-piece segmented steel fork with the frameset. The complete is $2399 and the new frameset price is $999.

And finally, because we're not monsters, we are making available to you, small numbers of painted to match forks for both the orignal yellow/pink splatter Electric Queens and the new cyan splatter completes. They are righteous five piece segmented beauties and are perfect for those of you want to turn your EQ into a more efficient pedaler / adventure / Winter rig. They come with a thru-axle included and cost $250. These will be in stock later this month.
