Most bike companies aren't born in a brewery, but most companies aren't like REEB either. As a brand that kinda likes to stick it to the "man," it's no surprise that the first 650B dirt jumper we've seen should hail from this small Colorado-based maker of custom frames and tasty hop brews.

The need to soak up large rollers & still boost lip to berm transitions at the Oskar Blues Hops & Heifers Farm led to REEB’s first 650B bike.   The Destroyer’s short chainstays create a quick and flickable rear end while the DJ inspired tubeset gives you confidence to huck ze gnar. The frame is welded locally by Chris “Soultrain” Sulfrian with True Temper OX Platinum tubing, which means it’s 100% American Made. REEB use a stout 44mm Paragon head tube with a unique hand mounted REEB head tube badge.

The frame is Gates Carbon Drive compatible, and the Paragon Machine Works dropouts keep everything 100% American and allows derailleur hanger options along with standard quick release or 12mm X 142mm rear axle.

There is a yet to be released MRP "Slope" fork on duty up front, which is based on the MRP Stage chassis. It has 100mm of travel and is adjustable internally to 90 or 110mm. Features include a sealed damper with magnetic valving, 8-position compression adjustment, tapered steerer, and QtapeR 15mm axle system.

There you have it, the first 650B dirt jumper we've seen. Time will tell what sort of interest there will be for bigger wheels in the more trick-oriented disciplines going forward, but at this point, probably best not to write off any of the possibilities.
