Our man Will Ockelton built up a custom Nomad "Lifeboat" build to honor the RNLI
Folk outside the UK may not know that the Royal National Lifeboat Institution is actually a charity. Give them a click to show your support. And better still… if you’re on a UK beach this summer, perhaps consider dropping some gas money in a collection box to keep their amazing machines afloat!

Congratulations to Chris King Precision Components on their 40th Anniversary!
Chris King is one of our long-time partners, and we’re excited to continue that partnership with a special 40th anniversary edition 5010. There are only 40 of these bikes in the world, and they come complete with 40th anniversary Chris King hubs, headset, and new BSA30 bottom brackets. If you’re interested, give your local dealer a call!
Jonas Johnson is our product tech contact at Chris King Precision Components for the Santa Cruz Syndicate and has helped us out with countless projects that all needed to be done at a moments notice, so when Jonas asked for a little help getting his personal bike customized, we were happy to oblige. He knew he wanted the Bronson Kalimotxo frame but also had some inspiration in the form of a very colorful SDG Circuit MTN Shibuya saddle and here is the result. Some may say too colorful, but i'll be damned if he didn't somehow pull it all off.
