The 2016 Weekender Drop comes stock with a 11- 40t rear cassette. With 10 different gears ranging from a-bombing-down-a-hill-high-speed 11t to the granny-gear-hill-climbing 40t you can ride anything that comes your way. Older Weekenders have an 11-36t rear cassette. If you want a bigger range of gears you can follow the traditional path and add a front derailleur and another sprocket up front. Another option is to take advantage of all the 1x upgrades available in the mountain bike world. Leif Valin upgraded Sandy Carson’s Weekender with a OneUp 42t rear cassette kit and a Wolf Tooth narrow/wide front sprocket.
Forgive the slightly sarcastic title. It’s really amazing how adaptable bicycles are and the amount of cool attachments you can stick on them. Want to carry stuff with you on a bike ride, I promise there is a solution for that. Leif tried out some accessories on his Weekender Archer. Check out some options…
The forks on all of our Weekender models are re-vamped for 2016. We worked hard to make them better than ever. Let me walk you through some of the features…
We are stoked to see our 2016 bikes hitting the streets. I’m seeing a number of them tagged on the instagram. Thanks so much folks! Love seeing the bikes out in the real world (and off my computer screen!).
We just received some of our new MX bars. These low-rise chromoly BMX bars can give your bike a new look and feel. Here’s my bike and the switch from Archer bars to MX bars. They have a 4 inch rise and are 28 inches wide. They work especially well with our Weekender Archer, Coaster or Flyer. Pick some up through your favorite bike shop or they are on sale here for $24.99.
Bike Rumor has a very nice little write up on our 2016 line. Check it here. The bikes are now available and beginning to ship out to bike stores. Let us know how you enjoy them once they get into your hands!
This one is for bike shop buyers but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t point this out to your favorite bike shop. Our USA distributor (and our own in-house distro) is having a sale this week. Bike shops can stock up on Fairdale and other Full Factory goods with a great deal. Hit up Full Factory for all the details. 512-382-9973
We’re VERY happy to announce that Fairdale will once again be back in the UK! IMG Distribution will be bringing Fairdale’s into the UK and then getting them out to the right bike shops (and ultimately happy customers). Hit us up with any questions:firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much to Bike Biz for helping to get the news out.
