Working with Spank Bikes in Taiwan as a brand manager. 11 Years there, most in the bike biz. Love dirt jumps, dh, and urban. Reconstructed shoulder and right leg, and everything else broken before. Getting old enough that the big stuff is starting to get a little scary.

UR Team is sponsored officially by Alpine Stars (but Sam Reynolds has an independent Fox sponsorship). Commencal Riding Addiction is sponsored by Fox.

First Look: Only What's Necessary Shoes, Spank Pedals and Wheels - Eurobike 2015
Hey Guys....Mike from Spank here. New Oozy Bead Bite and Spike Bead Bite have a couple of advancements to the bead bite system. Bead Seats (Beds) are widened, to accommodate the slightly larger beads we see on next season's high volume tires from many of the major producers, and offer more support to the tire side wall. Also the troughs on either side of the Oohbah bulge in the center of the tube well are deeper to make tire fitting tires easier (without reducing ETRTO), and ramped more smoothly to create a seal with the tire bead and facilitate a lower pressure jump onto the bead seats. In testing, floor pump and even hand pump inflation is drastically improved.

First Look: Only What's Necessary Shoes, Spank Pedals and Wheels - Eurobike 2015
Hi Kmoter, having a quick look at your pedals, they are the original production version from '11, before several updates. We'd like to hear a bit more detail from you please and perhaps inspect that broken axle. Normally that assembly tested to over 900kgf load in the lab, even before the axles were updated. Our distributor in Poland is well informed on test standards and policy, so I'm not surprised if they were a little wary of a just riding pumptrack claim, but there is always an off chance of an issue thats out of your control. Please email us at info@spank-ind.com

Way to go boys...its been such a pleasure working with both of you the years. The progression of style, skill and technique from Matt Brooks and Lone Wolf has been wild. I'd have no problem recommending LWP to any brand in any industry at this point! Goes without saying that Dylan just kills it, and always looks effortless doing it!

Video: "Sik Mik" Hannah and Forrest Riesco Spank Whistler
Hey Guys...Mike D from Spank here. Keep in mind that Mick and Forrest filmed this video at Crankworx, between practice sessions and multiple events. Mick is in very high demand from sponsors and media...and that particular day did practice, then a film session up on the mountain, then a couple of interviews, and finally literally ran to our session, before heading back to practice. Try doing that, and all the time with cameras and mics in your face, and still keep an energetic smile on! Mick is a legend on and off the bike...respect. Rakeothon...ha...you just don't get it. Spank has invested millions over the years into development and manufacturing facilities, and spends years on the development and testing of new products before they get to the market. Anyone who thinks a highly weight optimized gravity handlebar is just a bent tube with a logo slapped on it, just doesn't have any idea what it takes. Mick is working with Spank on the testing of a new multi-material technology handlebar that will have an impact on the way we ride, but its a long and costly process....one we need his level of experience and maturity for! Oh, and Forrest runs Spank Industries Wheelsets...Mick runs cockpit. Sorry if that confused anyone.
