Custom Morewood Makulu For Sale

I don't update this site since Devil Bear became part of Singletrack Minds.  BUT...I have another Morewood Makulu for sale.  This isn't your standard Makulu and no it's not the raw from a couple years ago (Those had a Maxle threaded rear end, this is X12).  This Makulu was welded traditionally (No smooth welds), rubbed down with scotchbrite, and powdercoated clear.  It is dead sexy.
  • Tapered 1 1/8" to 1.5" (44mmx49mm) head tube
  • 12 x 150mm rear hub spacing
  • 83mm ISCG 05 bottom bracket
  • 4.7kgs Frame Weight with Coil Shock
  • Post mount direct 160mm rear brake tab
  • 266mm x 89mm [10.5" x 3.5"] rear shock
  • 2.3:1 Leverage ratio linkage with Enduro Max bearings

  • CNC machined 6082 Ali replaceable derailleur hanger
  • 203mm [8"] rear wheel travel
  • Proprietary Al 6082 T6 tubeset
  • 25.4mm F & 25mm R shock hardware
"The lion of the Morewood range. The Makulu has progressive suspension for those technical sections, precise handling for corners and a rock solid look on the podium. 3 years of design progression has led to the downhill frame that many consider the industry benchmark." - Morewood Bikes

I can supply the frame with a Cane Creek Double Barrel or without.  The frame come with a full warranty although the custom finish is NOT covered.  Price is $2,300 with Cane Creek Double Barrel or $1,895 without.  Send an email to Lance(at)singletrack-minds.com for more information.

2013 Lama Cycles DH Team Builds

I always look forward to the Lama Cycles DH Team bikes.  They just look right.   Sporting parts from Devil Bear Racing's friends like MRP, Formula, and Cane Creek; these new race bikes are ready for podiums. 

Lama Cycles INC is Distribution Company that was founded in 2006 by experienced downhill and street riders. Inspired by the energy that surrounds all cycling sports, the two founders set out to contribute to the growth of the movement. The company's main objective is to provide Canadian and USA riders with quality products that were previously unavailable on this side of the ocean.

So Blue...Custom Painted Makulu!

Kyle wanted a new Makulu frame...he wanted a blue Makulu.  This year's colors did not include blue so the factory in South Africa turned out this beautiful 2013 Makulu.  For you young guns looking for extra bling, be sure to check out the Makulu etching on the Cane Creek Double BarrelKyle is the owner of the Alpine Hut in Seattle.  On the floor you can also check out a sweet Sukuma on the floor that needs an owner.

MyBikeStand.com's Project Am/Enduro Sukuma

Ian at MyBikeStand.com decided that the perfect break-in for his newly built AM/Enduro project was to enter an enduro race with a cracked collar bone.  Well, he survived...and the Sukuma?  Take a closer look at the finished project.  29lbs. 6oz.  Sweet ride Ian!  More reviews on the specific components and frame to come.  Full build overview and more photos at MyBikeStand.
