REEB Cycles just announced their fully updated 2020 “The Sam’s Pants” as well as the all-new Lickskillet, a 700C all-road bike named after the steepest gravel road in Boulder County. Both models are designed around modern, non-suspension-corrected forks, and are offered in size-specific, lightweight, butted, and heat-treated steel or hand-selected, butted titanium. And both are made in the USA and fully customizable. Here are all the details…

New additions at REEB

Straight from the press release: REEB has invested in industry experience by adding future MTB Hall of Fame rider/tester Jeff Lenosky and Butch Boucher, an industry veteran with 30 years experience as co-founder of Co-motion Cycles and 21+ years with Moots. In addition to adding industry experience they have engaged engineer Steve Ziegler and added depth to their fabrication team anchored by Adam Prosise, pushing revisions to all 2020 models. These two models represent a specific investment in the all-road/gravel bike/adventure bike arena with the addition of Boucher and fabricator/gravel bike nerd Sam Robinson. “It’s been a big investment in a committed team of people that ride and relentlessly test our bikes, it’s bringing continued innovation to the entire line and we’re undoubtedly putting our best bikes to market.” Tim Moore, sales director at REEB Cycles.

2020 REEB Sam’s Pants

REEB describes The Sam’s Pants as “a dirt road rippin’, monster crossin’, adventure tourin’, backcountry bikepackin’, daily commutin’, all-rounder we did it with a mountain biker’s thirst for singletrack and self propelled backcountry adventure. Load it down with all your gear and get lost. The perfect bike for Sub-24hr bikepacking or an assault on the Bikepacking Triple Crown.” We’ve yet to test one, but it’s on our list! The 2020 Sam’s Pants features clearance for 29 x 2.2″ tires and a third pair of cage mounts on the downtube for extra water and gear. REEB also updated the frame with a 31.6mm seat tube and internal routing to work with a modern dropper post.

A couple of other tweaks to the 2020 Sam’s Pants include improved standover and larger triangle space. They accomplished this by adjusting the geometry for a shorter 415mm AC-height fork, like the recently announced Whisky No9 MCX (as shown in these photos). This allowed them to provide a little extra standover space while maintaining a large triangle for a sizable frame bag. Find the full highlight reel below.
