26" wheels may not be dead, but they're showing up on some positively strange bikes, like this electric behemoth from Moto Parilla. The 75-pound monstrosity is powered by a 750 watt motor, with 26 x 4.8" tires and a 380mm front rotor to help keep it under control. There's also an optional throttle kit for riders who want to own a slow, awkward motorcycle. It's worth a visit to the company's YouTube page
just to see footage of a rider teetering on the brink of disaster as he rides through a grassy field.Swagman Escapee Rack
Swagman's Escapee rack is built for heavy duty usage, so whether you're lugging around a clapped out freeride bike or a battery powered moped the rack should be able to handle it, just as long each bike weighs 60 pounds or less. The trays will accommodate wheel sizes from 20" - 29", and tires up to 3.0" wide. A locking hitch pin and locking ratchet arms helps ensure that the rack its cargo are still there when you return from an errand.Tantrum Cycles Meltdown
Pinkbike's Richard Cunningham took a first ride on an early version of Tantrum Cycles' Missing Link
suspension design back in 2016, writing that, "Brian Berthold's Missing Link is proof that there actually is significant room for improvement among the present crop of all-mountain trail bikes." In the months that followed that article the company met their Kickstarter campaign goal, and the bikes are now in full production.
The unique suspension layout remains the same, but the geometry on the production models has been altered slightly compared to the prototype versions. The Meltdown now has 160mm of travel, 27.5" wheels, and a slack 64° head angle. Reach numbers are as follows: S 400mm, M 440mm, L 470mm. The bikes will be available from dealers, as well as directly from Tantrum.
