James is the 'other' member of staff at Airdrop. With a background in DH and a lot of bike park laps under his tyres, his custom built Edit v2 is unique. So we thought we would kick off our new series of bike checks with a look at James' bike, and why he's chosen to build it this way.
Airdrop Bikes is a small brand. We talk about that a lot; not because it’s a problem, but because it’s a good thing. True, our scale limits what we can do in some ways, but there are also loads of advantages. For Airdrop Bikes, professional means building great bikes and looking after our customers like they are real people, not numbers.
We've added four new metallic decal options to our existing range of 12 gloss colours. Now you can choose Silver, Gold, Bronze or Anthracite for your new Airdrop bike.
Luke is the brand manager for Rockshox and SRAM at Zyro Fisher, so as you can imagine we work with him quite a lot. SRAM have been super supportive of Airdrop Bikes right from the beginning, and Luke's one of the good guys. So when Luke came at us for help with his own bike, we were stoked to get involved.
If you've been following Airdrop for a while, you probably know it's been a one-man-brand until now. I've done everything myself, from designing the bike, to building the workshop... you name it. But when it got to the point where I was doing nothing other than building bikes all day every day, it became obvious that I needed help...
Since launching the Hope Bike Build Video on Facebook a few weeks ago, we've had a lot of interest in our custom build service. This is Joe's bike. Joe's a big fan of the purple Hopetech components, and it shows.
It seems like I've done nothing but build bikes for the last couple of weeks, but I thought I'd share just one of the awesome bikes that are rolling out of the door at the moment. This is Dave's bike.
