    Reeb Sqweeb?

    There isn't a lot out there about this bike. Any thoughts?

    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.

    Large... Im 511 and the large with a 40mm stem felt great. A 185mm dropper fit easily.

    Its such a fun bruiser of a bike.

    We went REALLY long, you can tell we're all in quarantine and looking for human interaction.

    Jeff, I've watched part of the last 2 live streams. I really like what I've seen so far on the Squeeb. Do you know if any shops in the Asheville area have an XL that I could demo after it's safe to go out again and Pisgah opens back up?

    Spent most of quarantine watching videos about MTB as I can't get out much with the kids home 24/7. One a serious note thought, Ive a buddy with 2 reeb fatties ( Tydonk and Donkadonk) and the quality is superb. I'd love a Sqweeb, do you know what the delivery time is on the 130mm version currently? I've emailed them a week or so ago but haven't heard back yet, I reckon they're swamped.

    Definitely send another email. So far the guys at Reeb have been very responsive to all of my stupid questions.

    Thanks, yeah Jeff been emailing me with answers already which I'm very appreciative of.
    Original email was via web portal. Angling towards of the 130mm version with a coil shock, but like the fact I can swap out linkage and shock to get more travel if I start taking on rowdier terrain or plan a bike park trip.

    Just an update. After a great series of emails and advice from Jeff and Tim from Reeb, I am now a few weeks away from getting my Sqweeb short travel frame with a coil shock. To say Im excited is an understatement.
