Sick Bicycles Partners with Legendary Fabricator Frank the Welder on New Long Travel 29er

Jan 7, 2019
by Paul Aston  
Sick Bicycles have caused plenty of stir over the last two years: their Instagram fans seem to love them (aside from the ones who get ripped to shreds in the comments by the brand owners themselves), their industry competitors hate them – heretics with zero bike knowledge or skill and often ask "do they even make bikes, or just silly t-shirts?", and "who do they think they are, coming in here with no background and no years of hard graft."

Tim amp Jordan
Who the bloomin-eck do these guys think they are? They haven't even spent the last ten years making steel frames in a shed...

The brand, started by two tattoo artists, Jordan and Tim, have pulled numerous bikes out of the bag though with a whole new concept for sales. While big corporations work like cargo ships that take years to change direction, Sick take an approach to give people what they want, now. How about a high pivot, Pinion driven, ridiculous geometry with a silly name called the Sleipnir? Well, they only sold seven of them on Indigogo but raised 252% of their goal mainly by selling t-shirts and other goodies – just like how all the best BMX brands started. Selling seven bikes might not be industry changing, but seven people will have a crazy bike that at least they will love and cherish. If you are one of those seven and wanted that bike with a Specialized logo on the downtube – you would be waiting for a lifetime.

The Gnarpoon numbers are sandwiched between Kazimer's and my ideal geometry numbers, and 33% of the vote agreed - are Sick offering people what they want and now? Only two backers have put their money where their mouth is so far.

I was shocked by our recent poll that let the readers vote on PB's editors' favorite geometry. I was fully expecting to get murdered in the comments, but I am currently 'winning' this poll with a seat angle that doesn't even exist on any bike – maybe the trolls are stuck in a Christmas food coma and cannot type or vote anymore?

Or, maybe things are changing? This is where Sick step into a world where things accelerate faster and faster on a weekly basis, Sick seems to be giving people what they want and now. A monthly 'drop' of their latest frames, sizes, and colorways means they can change their product line every four weeks, to whatever their fan base asks for. Planning two years ahead for production lines and product launches might be dead?
sick bicycle co death from above www.sickbicycle.co
Sick Bicycles know how to cause a buzz, this titanium 'Death From Above' missile was shown in Fort William last year.


So what is next? Their original business idea was to make a 29" wheeled, 180mm travel, enduro-park-race weapon with 'crazy' geometry two years ago. They took a glimpse of what they thought was coming and pressed send. Two years later – and I'm sure they will admit they f***ed up a lot on the journey – but now that machine is here, and in those 24-months a lot has changed and the Gnarpoon looks a lot more sensible, and now something that the public is ready for.

The Gnarpoon is here. Future or fad?

Not only did they magic up some geometry numbers that would have almost won the 33% majority of our poll, they also offer the following traits to their fanbase who want something different: a 4130 steel OR alloy mainframe, fabricated in USA by no-other than Frank the Welder, future-proofed standards, hardcore builds that will take on any terrain, and a promise of a metric-shit load of fun times.

Is this a true modern mountain bike, a glimpse into the future of our industry, or just a tiny fad for a few tattoed hipsters? Time will tell.


As a rule, we do not cover crowdfunding projects on Pinkbike, but we made an exception here. The full Indiegogo crowdfunding project can be seen here.

 Ever seen the Simpsons episode when Homer designs a car with his long lost brother (Danny DeVito) and calls it "The Homer"?
Kinda looks like what you'd get if you ask all the idiots what they want. Unfortunately, it already seems evident that asking the masses what they want doesn't equal sales
  • + 12
 You know as well as the rest of us that if a 'big name' released that bike, completely unchanged apart form branding then it would sell like the hottest of hot-cakes from day one. This is what you get when you build a bike you want. Which is really what they did. The ''idiots'' are the ones who bypass it for something with a nicer name to pose with on the trails.

 Internets still want their 26, 20mm, QR rear back. Maybe bushing pivots because it's stiffer and easier to maintain.
  • + 10
 @mgolder: I genuinely think this wouldn't struggle to sell if there was some kind of development / testing / review history behind it.

With a 'big name' comes trust, you assume (rightly or not) that the brand will be there for you if something breaks, will have support when required and has been well tested before release (not always true I admit), one of the tough things about being a small brand is you really need to show you have developed the product and that its been received well when tested by those that are trusted - e.g. Stantons new FS frame, Starlings Swoop to name a few.

If there is one thing Sick are phenomenal at (in this small industry at least) is marketing / branding, I don't think that's the issue.

 The ICB 2 from Alutech (and also Portus) is a really nice bike, seems if you let the masses design a bike they come back with a medium travel trail bike, just like what most people buy already. It even has a threaded bb, so people in fact do know what's good for them, some of the time.
.
Sick appear to have a different model. They draw up something a bit batshit, then see if anyone wants to buy it, whilst using the publicity to sell T-shirts, which are the real money maker. Good for them, but probably not the future of the industry at large.

 @IllestT have you done studies to say so ? Do you have numbers to back-up that claim ? Marketing studies have shown that product development done in association with end customers do end-up with a product suiting their needs and makes for a products that should sell well. Making bike with the people for the people sounds right to me, even more right if the industry wasn't trying to convince customers of stupid things like a XS 29er frame is the right idea for a small person. If the brainwashing stops I am sure people could design bikes that they like. Alutech already proved it, so did other brands outside of Mtb where brainwashing isn't as bad.

 @justanotherusername: 1 million percent this. I also don’t really wanna give my money to a pair of obnoxious (IMO) tagalongs who only have ‘these numbers’ because of a long history of people working their asses off to progress the sport technically. I know that’s a bit sentimental but whatever. If they were graceful about it, or shows an ounce of humility, or an interest in the sport, maybe I’d thunk differently.

They’ve got the social media banter wagon going but that’s it. I wouldn’t trust their bikes as far as I could ghost one off a double.
  • + 4
 @OrangeGoblin: I’m with you that I don’t agree with how they do things, but I don’t have to, I don’t agree with a lot of what other people do either and I imagine other people feel the same about me, we are all a*sholes to someone.

I don’t agree that they don’t care about the sport, I think they genuinely do - they do lots of social stuff and it all takes time and effort.

Would I buy one of these; no - it’s not my bag and neither is the company, others do like them though and I think people would buy them if they hadn’t rushed this out there.

 I gave the guy at sick a lot of shit when the first article about that HT surfaced on here (it looked weird, they changed it, now it looks better) but they have come a long way since then in terms of product, that's a nice looking bike, but.....

Can a customer realistically be expected to spend this amount of money on a bike frame that doesn't physically exist yet? I mean on one side of the coin you have people like Unno testing for years before release and then here no actual testing before marketing to the customer.

Seriously guys, go away, build a couple of these, deal with any small refinements from actual testing, see how it rides, if anything isn't right / doesn't work so well, get some reviews and then come back for some crowd funding, I bet more people will be willing to put their money into one then.

Hardtails are one thing, but releasing a full suspension frame, in two materials, without having an actual prototype is risky for both the customer and the business.

flag Dudeclimbsrocks (Jan 7, 2019 at 14:14) (Below Threshold)
 So you are actually assuming that these guys have not made any prototypes, never ridden the designs they have created? Are you actually assuming that the Frank the Welder, with his reputation in tow, would build these frames and put his name on them having no idea how the final product would ride or hold up?

I think that is delusional. This project appears to me as a labor of love, there is no way they would not do a substantial amount of testing and test-mules before bringing it to any level of production. Anything less than that is just asking for lawsuit on top of lawsuit.

if I could downvote you more I would.
  • + 14
 @Dudeclimbsrocks: I am only making that assumption and if that isn't a fact I am happy to apologise as its unfair to suggest that but yes, from what I believe there is no functional prototype of this frame, in any material - they have only just started machining yokes I believe.

The pictures used in this article are renders, the pictures in the crowd-fund are renders, I am sure there are more people than me that would like to see pictures of a physical frame.

Would you try and build a bike company without making prototypes and testing shit extensively?

I wouldn't, I bet you wouldn't, and I bet most any mountain biker that wanted to build a bike business wouldn't either. I don't see the joy in shitting on a couple dudes that just wanna make bikes.

 @mgolder: I ride bikes not fart around with geo numbers. Its all a fad... Like anodized bar ends.
  • + 4
 @Gregorysmithj1: Well, this fad that already stretched your average bike reach for a few centimeters in a few years. Size L reach used to be about 42cm I think. Now it's more about what, 46cm ?
Seat tube used to be about 73°, now it's more about 75° or more.
It's more that after being only a rugged version of a road bike, mtb has fully emancipated itself from its road ancestor and adopts geometry numbers more suited for its inteded use.
S!ck, Nicolai, Mondraker, Pole are on the extreme end of the spectrum, but the fad from a few years ago is now the norm.
  • - 2
 @Will-narayan: I think geo numbers are now just sillyness yeah fads have a fade factor doesnt really prove your point.. like bar ends, skinny bars/wide bars 'plus" tires all started in the boutique then mainline then dead. These geo numbers have gotten insane there is more to a bike than geo numbers get on an ibis mojo from 2008 geo is "off" but it still shreds. I get on these absurd bicycles its not making anyone faster not giving any more control it is a fad.
  • + 5
 @Gregorysmithj1: The 2008 Mojo undoubtedly still shreds, but if you were offered a 2019 HD3 or the 2008 Mojo, you'd be mad to get the old one. Bikes aren't getting slower as the years go by, they're getting faster and easier to ride because of the improvements to the Geo.
  • + 1
 @Gregorysmithj1: You're still on a 2010-ish bike? Or already started to move towards this "fad"? Are you willing to bet your actual money that companies soon start to back up from this days numbers toward some "sensible" geo from 2015, like 67 HA and 73 SA?
  • - 2
 @Clarkeh: of course I've had a dozen other bikes since then point is geo isn't everything just like bar ends wasn't everything. Buying a bike just because the "geo" is hip is absurd... The obsession with geometry numbers is a fad. It is fashion over function.

 @hirvi: seat angles need to push weight to back tires for weight distribution. The truth is bikes haven't advanced much in ten years think 1999 to 2009 HuGe gains 2009 -2019 geo? Different tires?

  • + 2
 @RedRedRe: Doesn´t matter if you have seen one or not, they are out there and people feel more comfortable on them? Why? because they actually are in more efficient position for pedaling on them? Because you don´t have to bend over to 90 degrees to keep front wheel down and then do all pedaling with hamstring and glutes, which puts huge strain on lower back and isn´t really good for knees either? Maybe you should look at road race bikes numbers and then try to find out it enduro with 160-170mm travel and 78deg SA isn´t actually very close in effective SA to that once sagged, and they are still not riging as steep climbs as a lot of guys here, if they do climb really steep piece of the road they will almost always stand up. If you always ride on flat ground and ride on rigid bikes, your logic might be OK, if you don´t it isn´t. Simple as that.

 Your costs will be low until you have to fund: a workshop, stock, marketing, race team, new developments, postage, tax, and a million other things you didn't even realise would cost you money. Making one off bikes is relatively easy. Making a company building bikes is something totally different...

 @phutphutend: I think he is talking about making a frame for himself and maybe refers to getting Marino over in Peru to do it for him seeing as they make a single pivot and offer custom geo.

 @justanotherusername: Yep. Got one after about 3 months, but finding that it isn't production quality. Misalignment (rear not well centered/angled), chainring and crank clearance issues (had to space out DS crank by at least 7.5mm), soft paint...

Learned quite a bit about geometry though. Was so different that it's taking me over 300 miles to get used to it. Will say that I'm not afraid of STA steeper than 82, reach 490+, CS 450+, wheelbase 1200+, HA slacker than 62, etc. There's a way to balance all of these numbers to get a good well-rounded ride that doesn't pigeonhole it into any certain style.

 Pretty sure the 40 at 200mm has the same A2C as a 36" at 180 anyway. The only issue would be that the TT isn't reinforced to take knocks from the stanchions, but being a SC it'd probably be fine.

 @Clarkeh: AC lenght is only part of the problem, but yes, area behind head tube isn´t reinforced to handle impacts form stanchion hitting it in crash and most likely will crack/delaminate on carbon frame, on alu it might just put nice ding on the tube, at least you will see it. Lowered dual crown fork is only marginally longer if at all, but is a lot stiffer in fore/aft direction, that also puts more stress on head tube area. If it was ok to use DC on Nomad, they would be the first one to use it for advertisement just like YT did with capra, they didn´t and it will void the warranty.
