The new Lenz Sport Lunchbox 29er has been making heads turn on any of the trails where you may be lucky enough to see one. We have only built a small pre-release batch of this Lenz Bike for select riders so far, and we’ll be working on the first run of production frames soon. Click here to see the thread on MTBR that has some of the initial reviews of the new Lunchbox. The new Lenz Luchbox is sporting a 16.7″ chainstay, which has the nickname “Punk-Ass”. The shorter chainstay is unbelievable, to say the least. Last year’s LB had a 17 3/8″ chainstay, which was already awesomely short, and provided the quickest handling and easiest manualing of any 29er out there. Now the 16.7″ chainstay combined with the 75 degree seat angle and 67 degree head angle makes the new Lunchbox a trail machine. The descending characteristics are un-matched, and the steep seat angle gets you over the bottom bracket so you can crank uphill like you are on a cross country bike. All of these new features make the Lunchbox bike an amazing all-around bike for climbing and descending. The new downtube gets you clearance for a piggy back shock, which you’ve been asking for, and the new pro-curve top tube gets extra standover clearance, which is always welcome. With frames under 8 pounds, you can build your dream bike under or around 30 pounds without a whole lot of trouble. This bike has not truly been “released” yet, so we will be working on posting all of the necessary information to the website soon. In the meantime, please email us with any questions. We are happy to help and we can take pre-orders now.

Snow season is here, and we want to be the first to inform you that all Vail Resorts are now allowing ski bikes. So if you have the 5 mountain pass, you can use a ski bike at Breckenridge, Keystone, A-basin, Vail, and Beaver Creek. All of Vail’s out-of-state resorts also allow ski bikes, such as the Vail-owned resorts in California. Steamboat is also now allowing peg ski bikes this year. This is huge for the fast-growing sport of ski biking. Many people are switching their winter hobbies to ski biking and tons of mountain bikers are using it to extend the mountain bike season. Ski biking is also a great snow sport for folks with knee, ankle, or back problems because the suspension absorbs the rough terrain way better than your own legs. Our ski bikes are built tough, with downhill and freestyle performance, durability, and lightweight are our main design objectives. We will also be debuting our new ski-bike specific skis that are going to improve the performance of ski bikes everywhere.
We are working on planning some demo events at some of the different resorts. Follow us on facebook to have the best access to event announcements.

Well, my full suspension, single speed, 29er, Milkmoney 4.0 build is finally complete. I rode it out at Wapit trail at Heil Valley Ranch then out to the top of Picture Rock trail then down into Lyons for lunch at Oskar Blues. I’m amazed at the plushness of the ride. The Fox Talas TerraLogic fork works so well with this frame. My arms felt numb because I couldn’t feel all the bumps like I used to, very weird. I’m a very happy customer. Thanks to you all who helped make this dream a reality, it was really worth the wait!
Special thanks to:
Devin at LenzSport for the meticulous frame build
Adam at Golden Bike shop for dealing with my many contacts for updates
Josh, Bryan, and James at Full Cycles for all the rest of the parts and the build

Just sending out some more of the details for the Berthoud skibiker DH rally this Saturday. Just about finished with the big huck (jump) that we are going to set up along with the the Berthoud pass top to bottom race and BBQ. Were keeping time of the racing and going to have a jump contest too. Should be lots of fun. Snow was awesome last weekend to close down Winter Park. Powder all weekend and if we have snow and weather anything like it was last weekend, we’ll have great conditions for digging in the snow and riding and hanging out eating and drinking some beers.
I’m going to get there early to get a good spot and set up the grill. We’ll start shuttling probably by 9:00 so people can get some runs to scope out the course. The plan is to start sending racers off at noon and then eat when were done. Then we can watch the jumpers in the group huck themselves off the jumps and do some tricks. I have some awards for the top 3 of each event.
Try to get there early to get some runs in and sign up. No cost to compete. We’ll post times up on my website so we can start a record of how long it takes to run the Berthoud 7 mile gully run. Share this blog post to anyone you know that skibikes or just wants to have fun in the snow.
This is our new "Big Huck" ski bike and MTB jump. Come huck it at Berthoud on Saturday.
