First Look: Reeb's New Steel Enduro Racer is Partly 3D-Printed

Feb 23, 2023

When every other new mountain bike seems to be a carbon fiber, high-pivot something or other, it's always nice to see a different take. Reeb Cycles' 155mm-travel Steezl uses 4130 chromoly tubing paired with 3D-printed frame components to create exactly that, much like the short-travel SST we reviewed late last year.

The new Steezl can be run as a 29er or with a mullet set-up thanks to a set of flip-chips, is designed for 160mm to 170mm-travel forks, and replaces the Sqweeb (which has nothing to do with Rick and Morty). The new bike will be available in April and complete builds will start at $6,695 USD, or you can pick up a Steezl frame and shock for $3,795 USD. Reeb is also doing a frame/shock/fork/headset/stem combo that starts at $4,995 USD.

Frame and suspension

The general consensus in the comment section under that SST review was, "Holy crap, that thing is gorgeous," and I suspect that the Steezl's clean lines will earn similar praise. You won't find a fancy storage compartment in the downtube and the bike's cables don't disappear into the headset, but Reeb says that there's a load of standover clearance and short seat tubes allow for the longest dropper posts.

There's also a UDH at the 148mm wide rear end, external cables, as well as room for a 2.6" wide rear tire and a large-sized bottle. In other words, it's all pretty straightforward.

While the SST uses a steel flex-pivot, the Steezl gets an aluminum Horst-Link layout instead.

Reeb also makes these gorgeous rocker arms.


Don't go thinking this thing is boring, however, because Reeb is doing some cool stuff in Lyons, Colorado, where they're welding frames. The chromoly tubes sport a custom profile, just like the SST, and a set of CNC'd rockers pivot at Reeb's, "polygonal CRT rocker interface to keep everything pointed in the right direction through the rough stuff." They're also saying that the kinematics have been tweaked versus the Sqweeb to,"improve pedaling performance at sag, reduce kickback deep in the travel, and hone in on a perfect leverage curve to keep things smooth, controlled, and consistent pedaling up a fireroad, sending your favorite jump line, or blasting into a scree field at race speed."

The bike's bottom bracket cluster is 3D-printed steel.

Unlike the SST which used a steel rear-end with a flex-pivot at the axle for its 120mm of travel, the 155mm-travel Steezl employs box-section aluminum seat and chainstays for its Horst-link layout. And while the SST frame had 3D-printed dropouts and clevis pieces made in Asia, Reeb is using that manufacturing method in the US to make the Steezl's bottom bracket cluster instead. The SLM 3D-printing process uses a power-dense laser to melt and fuse metallic powders, adding layers as it goes until the component "grows" into the Steezl's bottom bracket area.

With the SST, Reeb told me that the process results in lighter and stronger parts than they would be had they been machined instead of printed, and that's likely the same case with the Steezl's printed parts.


photo
Reeb says that the Steezl works well with coil or air-sprung shocks, and you can choose between Cane Creek, Rockshox, Ohlins, EXT, and PUSH Industries.


Geometry

Reeb is offering the Steezl in five sizes, from a small with a 445mm reach to the double-extra-large that has a roomy 520mm front-end, all with 77-degree seat and 64-degree head angles. There are also two different rear-end lengths; 434mm for the small, medium, and large, while the two biggest sizes grow by 10mm. Interestingly, Reeb will also let you order any frame size with either length chainstays, so you could choose a smaller frame with the longer chainstays or a larger frame with shorter chainstays.

Alright, let's pretend we've all got some extra money to burn and a desire for a new enduro bike... Are you sticking to carbon or aluminum, or does Reeb's US-made chromoly Steezl make it into your short list of contenders? Would the no-frills design get your money and praise, or are you hoping for a longer list of features on your next bike?

 I'll be the first to admit that when Reeb first released a bike I thought it was a joke. Dammed if they aren't making some of the coolest bikes I've seen lately though.

 @jclnv: I think when Lenoski started riding them, I immediately thought "Throw money at him and he'll ride whatever. Reeb, beer spelled backwards (which I know the founder is also the founder of Oskar Blues), what a joke, just more party bro bullshit"

I'm very happy to have been wrong, and happily admit that I was.

 @grnmachine02: Glad you're wrong ;-) I actually met all the guys a year before I started riding for them. I was doing a lot of stuff with Oskar Blues and Can'd Aid so when I was looking for a new bike brand I knew of them but figured they were too small to have a full time rider. I decided to ride for them because there would be so much opportunity to collaborate and get more involved. It's hands down the best decision I've ever made in my riding career and 100 percent not decided by money. I couldn't be happier with the bikes we're making!

 @Roost66: "What happened to their bike park in Bevard??"

A dude who owned a beer company had a dream & that dream was crushed but he cashed in.

But thanks to this thread, I've learned that Oscar Blues, the company that came under fire for building a brewery/cannery in Brevard to use the waters of the delicate Davidson River (and is/was under investigation for water quality discharge violations) is now owned by a Mega-Corp Monster Energy.

Looks like Reeb Ranch was bought by an oral surgeon out of Cary, NC named Dr. Stefan Simoncic.

I can't figure out how to tie all this into dentist bike jokes though.

  • 1 0
 @rayray1996: Trunnion mounts have a smaller margin of error for misalignment so they break more frequently. QC during COVID was kinda crap so trunnion mounted shocks were blowing up more than usual. Bikes are being assembled better now that the bike boom is slowing down so trunnion mounts breaking shocks shouldn't be as much of a problem, but using a mounting system that increases the chances of failure is still kinda wack to me.

 @Roost66: Reeb Ranch was owned by the owner of Oskar Blues under a LLC for years. They built the jumps, had the Redbull event there, then added pump trucks and such. There were/are also cabins on the property, they used it as a wedding and event venue, as well as hosting a few mtb events and clinics. They built a few connecting trails to DuPont along with a 1/4 mile jump trail, but the trails were not worth the price of admission, most folks came for the DJs and pump track, but it was always really slow seeming when I went. The DJ track at Riveter came about and I think that took what remaining draw there was away from it for bikes. The property is also beautiful with a nice waterfall and scenery.

At the time, Reeb had a full demo fleet there and at least two people staffed it full time, you could drive up and pay to use the pump track, dirt jumps, trails, etc. They also had folks managing the demo fleet here, but afaik none of them are still around here working for Reeb. You could also rent the cabins but they were obscenely expensive.

A few years ago, it was listed for sale for ~$4m. Around then, OB was bought by the parent company of Monster and Reeb/Oskar Blues became separate AFAIK. I've heard rumors about why he sold the property, but my expectation is that he bought the property for personal reasons that didn't pan out, tried to make a business out of it, but it didn't pan out over the years and he wasn't going to OB Brevard any longer, so he sold it while demand was high. That's purely speculation though, so take it FWIW. The new owners had someone managing it for a while and arranging events, but it seems to have slowed down. It's an amazing piece of property and I hope it doesn't turn into some development over time.

The land has some interesting history too, I read somewhat reliable reports that it was at one point worked by German POWs during WWII. I know that happened in this area, but I couldn't get 100% confirmation it was there, so just an interesting anecdotal tidbit that may or may not be accurate.

 The last article on REEB here on Pinkbike stated that the company had some staff with expertise in the space industry, which provoked some disbelief from the peanut gallery. I'd like to say, I went to college with one of the engineers there, and he indeed did something connected with satellites- either the satellites themselves, or putting them in space. If you're reading this, Steve, cheers from Warsaw.

 Isn't the bike world infested by aerospace people anyway? The Wright brothers called themselves bike mechanics, but have been messing with airplanes too. Joe McEwan from Starling Cycles is an aerospace engineer. Aerospace people just have a passion for bikes. I'm aerospace engineer too and lots of my teachers were obsessed by bicycles. Especially the ones from aerodynamics. Most of the time, you're aiming for efficiency. And bicycles are incredibly efficient. I noticed an aerodynamics company which I helped with their first project (building a model to test boundary layer suction) also helped to design the Koga track race bike that was successfully being used at the Olympics by the Dutch team. You may think aerospace is cool but the truth is, bikes are way cooler Smile .

 @jmhills:
Being a local to them, I wish they were still relevant and producing up to date bikes. They made me an incredible custom “enduro” bike in the late 2000’s before enduro was a thing. Tapered head tube, size large top tube with a medium seat tube, external dropper routing, 150mm of travel…all painted that sparkly monster green. It seems now a lot of their time and effort goes into designing and producing other people’s frames ( squid, lil shredder, etc) but I still hope one day Sherwood will produce one last banger of a bike before fully going the route Foes or Turner went.

 What a looker, I'm in the market this year for a susser as I am life long hard tail guy, but since I had a hip replacement last fall I'm thinking the body could use a break. I was considering a SST, but I kinda want something with more travel since I can still ride the majority of my trails on my HT, but I'd like something around 150mm for the trails I ride that are rougher/steeper.

 Perfect evolution to the Sqweeb. Little slacker HTA, little steeper seat tube angle, longer chainstays. All the stuff they had right (short seat tubes, external routing) stays the same. Well done Reeb! It would be near the top of my short list if I were shopping this season.

 Much to luv about this frame. Made locally. You can choose your rear stay length . At 4k just for the frame I would hope for a ten year crash replacement warranty. And I would expect the frame to last minimum 5 years . It would be worth it to invest in such a frame if the company that makes the frame is confident it will last .And backs the belief with a solid warranty.

 I wondered why the Sqweeb suddenly vanished from their website. This new rig looks good at first glance! I'd take a hard look at one of these if I need a longer travel bike than I currently have, especially since they're offering Ohlins suspension as an option.

 Absolutely gorgeous, but it sucks that we’ve reached the point where small frames have a 445mm reach.
  • 27 0
 This size was developed with a 5’2” rider over the past 3 years. 430mm reach was far too cramped with a 77 degree seat tube angle. We aren’t just throwing numbers on a wall here…
  • 1 0
 @prosauce: I am 5'8" and love riding my 440mm Enduro. I guess I would just order a small, if I was interested. Even over forked, seat tube angle is only about a degree difference and definitely a nice fit. Can't imagine a 5'2" rider on one.
  • 1 0
 @prosauce: whats the height recommendations for your sizes? I kinda looked at this at 5'6" (short arms) and figured S would be my ticket (currently with 430reach bike), but curious if you have a general sizing. Didn't see it on the site.
  • 4 1
 @prosauce: I hear you as far as it having a 77 degree seat tube goes, but man is bike growth crazy these days when someone who's 5'2" wants a bike with a 445 reach. I personally value the agility and nimbleness a shorter reach brings to the downs, flats and in the air over the benefits that a longer reach and steeper seat tube brings to steep climbs. That said, I'm 5'9" and ride a bike with a 430mm reach and a 75 degree seat tube, and that's perfect for my riding style. MTB geo is tough as far as trying to appease the most people with the angles and lengths you choose. One person's preferred geo would be sluggish and muted to someone else, while that person's preferred geo would be twitchy and unstable to the other person. At some point I feel we're going to reach a point where there needs to be bikes with geometry tailored for specific riding skill levels and terrains rather than making them try to accommodate everybody and everything.

 @terriblejon:

Your last sentence…
This is that bike. Tailored for specific skill level and terrain. This is not an entry level bike for riding tame trail.

 Reeb Ranch was the original site of a BMX Red Bull event years ago. Mtn bikers took to it because it’s literally at the entrance road to DuPont SF. They had no parking and it was really designed for a one time BMX contest. Reeb ranch was owned by Oskar Blues but after the sale, the property was up for sale also. The owner of OB (Dale) Dales Pale Ale is a MTBr and loved the Brevard area for riding. Brewery was built and is a mainstay in the town still, especially for locals. They sponsored a pretty famous DH rider at one point.

By the way, its a super overrated riding area and pretty awful craft beer scene so please don't go there. JK, go check it out. Support local business please and tip your server well!

 "improve pedaling performance at sag"

Would love to know what metric they're using for "improve pedaling"... More active suspension under power for more consistent traction? More stiffening of the suspension for a quick "feel" (at the possible detriment to traction)?

 What's your inseam and saddle height?

405mm of max extension with a 240mm OneUp puts it at >850mm. That's not that short.

We're all proportioned differently but I'd be fine with a 520mm reach on a 646mm stack, my saddle height is 750mm.

Just not the bike for you, but it works for others.

 @Takaya94: I agree with you. The lowdown frame only is just north of $3k. Steezl is $777 more with US fabrication and the fancy steel 3D printed bits. I'm sure they must ride very similar to each other.

 @shapethings: same for me. I’ve got a buddy that recently built an SST, it’s such a sick bike. Oskar Blues is also the local beer sooo I guess I should go with one of those.

 Steezl is perhaps the best name for a bike I've heard in a long time. Reeb could even make a +10mm version and call it the Reeble Steezl

 The Sqeeb was a thing of beauty and crazy intricate machined and welded bottom bracket assembly. It's quite apparent they are going in a different direction now.

 The aluminum tubing selection was an extremely limiting factor for us. We have a much better selection of chromoly tubing, the ability for smaller batch size on custom profiles and the ability to source from US suppliers.

 I am all in on steel frames but part of the reason for that is cost. Gonna stick with the new Cotic I bought to replace the custom frame that I recently broke.

 Damn if I had the option I'd spec that BB to be raw or clear coated. The finish looks sweet.

 Because of the color and round/straight top tubes/down tubes? That's about all they have in common.
