What’s happening?

Posted in Random by Mickey/SpookyBikes on April 14, 2010

The website is down for some lovin.

It’ll be back up soon, but I promise, some new bike info (as in NEW bike info) is going to go up over the course of the day today.
As always, if you’ve got any questions,
drop us a line at 41.230.8733 or InfoATspookybikes.com


Recent customer static shots;  I sure wish they’d send more action shots.

Skeletor Frame Pricing- $1000 for Anodized frames, $1125 for custom powdercoat colors (call for more info).  Edge 2.0 fork and CaneCreek 110 headset framesets are $1600. This is a price increase from 2009, but it’s still a damn good price for what is rapidly becoming the best proletarian race frame in the U.S.

The Skeletor is the only stock aluminum race frame that is made in the USA. That is important to some people, and should be important to far more people.   It’s not jingoism, it’s simple ethics and economics.

The above picture comes all the way from Berkely and some lucky person at ClifBar.  Makes me want more Clif Blocks.  Have I mentioned that ClifBlocks have changed my life?   Proper electrolyte balance isn’t just important in racing.  It’s equally important in “free living situations”.  I write better, I love better, and most importantly, I ride bmx after work in the middle of the night way more aggresively!  2 free cases of Clif product has made it possible for me to have the energy and nutrition it takes to get back on the bike regularly after 3 years of malnutrition and chronic dehydration.

This is Troy Wells race bike that will hit start lines in the UK, Belgium and Slovenia over the next few weeks.  The Darkside is an honest to god World Cup xc bike that has emerged from Spooky’s 16 year history of making the fastest XC hardtails we can.

XO or XTR you can’t build a better race bike for the money.  At $1000 for Ano, $1125 for custom powdercoat, you can build a World Cup worthy bike for $7000 less than the top of the line bikes from major manufactures.  A stronger, lighter USA made bike that comes from a small, passionate bike company.  Everyone makes awesome race bikes these days, so I say buy the one

This 26″ Darkside is the only stock USA made XC race frame.  The dudes at Ventanna and FTW up in VT make some totally awesome stock frames as well, but we have them in stock, and we had the ability to drop the weight down to sub 3 pounds for an anodized frame.    When we have a 29’r version this summer, we’ll probably sell a lot more XC hardtails.

There is a hell of a lot more to share besides the pertinent info of who and what and where are racing bikes really fast.

Our Worldcup ready DH bike will be on the hill in May, We are prototyping 29″ wheel bikes(heresy, I know).

We still have a bunch of Supertouches left

We’re running low though, so right now is the time to start gearing up for CX season.  Last year’s price of $850 is still in effect.
When these things are gone, the next batch will go up to $1100 in powdercoat or raw.  Thes are the last of the anodized Supertouches.

    What about Foes? They’re made in Pasadena.

    Pretty sweet as far as aluminum goes.
