Set your wanderlust and legs free.

The Sam’s Pants is our dirt road rippin’, monster crossin’, adventure tourin’, backcountry bikepackin’, bike path commutin’, all-rounder. At its heart it’s a bike, plain and simple – it’s whatever you want it to be. Designed with the old Bridgestone X0-1 in our hearts, we encourage you to build The Sam’s Pants however your deviant head desires.

It works great with any handlebar. It’s not fazed by throwing on a short travel suspension fork. Add rack and fender mounts. Put a Rohloff hub in the back or build around a Pinion gearbox in the front – they both make the bike even more perfect for your low maintenance long haul daydreams.

It ain’t The Cat’s Pajamas, it’s The Sam’s Pants.
