    Reeb Sqweeb?

    There isn't a lot out there about this bike. Any thoughts?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Does he have the latest updated bike?

    Hey OldHouseMan, I've been working with Reeb for the past six months and I'm really loving my bikes. What kind of questions did you have?

    Not the OP, obviously, but how does the Sqweeb pedal? Is it firm like a Norco, or a little more floaty like a Specialized/Transition? Is the curve progressive enough for a coil shock?
    The cake is a lie.

    Yes, he's probably been riding it for less than a month.

    I can't say much, as I haven't ridden my buddy's bike. His would be too big for me. But he has it outfitted with Cane Creek coils front and rear.

    I rode a Giant for 17 years and was skeptical about the switch to REEB after being indoctrinated into thinking anything but Maestro would suck. After riding the Sqweeb i was super impressed. There's no pedal feedback whatsoever. The spring curve falls slightly at the beginning so it's nice and supple and ramps slightly at the end to resist bottoming. All the other REEB guys run coil springs but I typically run a DVO air shock. Where do you live? Maybe we can get you on a demo.

    I don't really have any specific questions, was just trying to start a conversation. The bike looks really nice. At 5'9" I was thinking about a medium. Any reason to go with a small? Before stumbling on the Sqweeb, I was reluctantly planning to go with the Pivot Firebird 29, but was having a hard time buying into carbon and Superboost. I have an LBS north of me in Longview, Washington. Not sure if they stock anything.

    The small is best for riders under 5'7" so you're perfect for a medium.
