    Durango Bike Company

    Saw an ad for these guys in the latest BIKE Magazine. They seem pretty 650b-oriented. Even have "650b" in their phone number! Some interesting sounding frames available and "coming soon."

    Anyone familiar with them?

    I Just ordered a Moonshine so I'll let you know in a couple weeks. I love the specs on the frame, the Horst Link, and the all those sweet made in USA components. A package that sweet at that price point unmatched in the industry. Pike, I9 Torch, X01, Thompson, for under 6K!

    After speaking with Jeff he explained his company's philosophy regarding made in the USA, and sustainable manufacturing, building community along with a company. Plus the frame sports a lifetime frame warranty, 30 day returns, and a buy back policy. This bike must rock.

    I saw the moonshine at sea otter and was immediately impressed with talking with Jeff. The horst link was excellent and the build was awesome.

    I like the look and ideals they reprisent, my biggest problem with them is that I didn't see the frame only option; I own all the parts I'd like to build that bike with so I don't want to buy a bunch of expensive shiny stuff I don't really need.

    @Slowrider they do frame only, just give them a call. I was going to go that route, but couldn't resist all the goodies they hang on their bikes.

    Anyone ride one?
    The 67 degree seat tube angle is the only thing that looks a bit odd. Seems quite slack, and maybe will put you behind the pedals quite a ways. Other numbers look in line w/ others, but 71 to 74 seat tubes are more in line w/ I've ridden lately?

    Love the made in USa, and love the horst link.

    thx!
