Jeff Lenosky's Steezl featured in Mountain Bike Action

"I got this bike just about a year ago and just had it repainted.  I’ve ridden professionally for close to 30 years and over the first 25 I learned not to get too attached to my bikes.  In the past would usually build up at least 6 bikes a year and swap out similar models every 6 months.  When I started riding for REEB I began thinking of my bikes as works of art, every time I’d build a new bike I got to choose the color, all the components, sometimes geometry, etc.  These weren’t disposable items like I used to treat my bikes.  I beat the heck out of my Steezl for a year and it was still perfect, rather than get an entirely different bike I just decided to get a fresh paint job and swap out some components.  Riding hand crafted bikes and seeing the work that goes into them has  changed how I think about my bikes, I’m definitely less inclined to build a completely new bike each year when they last as long as these do."
