THE OFFERING OF ADVENTURE
The Offering, our new FULLY OPTIMIZED 140mm rear travel 29” mountain bike with a steeper 77° seat angle and a metric trunnion-mounted rear shock. Taking the best attributes from both the Following MB and the Wreckoning LB, while developing its own character, the Offering provides a new experience with longer reach while creating a bike that has all the same pop with an increase in stability without sacrificing corner destroying performance.
ATTACKING THE CLIMB WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE SHRED.
The Offering began when we finally figured out that we were wrong. There we were thinking we nailed all the categories perfectly. The Following MB was the short travel trail slayer, the Wreckoning was winning monster truck rallies, and all was right with the world. It turned out we weren’t as smart as we thought we was, so we started thinking about the idea of having a tweener. A bike that logically split the difference between the Following MB and the Wreckoning. We asked ourselves, why have a 120mm, 140mm and 160mm 29” wheeled bikes? Wouldn’t this 140mm bike cannibalize the Following MB and Wreckoning sales? After enough beers we started to realize that this line up allowed us to focus more specifically on each category of bike. Despite hearing rumours of the Following MB shredding the Whistler Bike Park and the Wreckoning being used as the all-day trail weapon, the Following was initially conceived as the all-day trail shredder and the Wreckoning was designed to shake the forest. We had it backwards all along…. A common theme. As luck would have it, the Offering ended up being a unique specimen featuring some attributes and ride qualities we have been wanting to add for years but needed to wait for the right moment.
The number 74.8° has been the seat angle that has spanned our entire bike line up. When paired with the appropriate travel front fork, 74.8° was a climb friendly seat angle, but as usual we had things wrong. Many of you wanted to ride longer travel front forks and when combined with the lower (X-LOW) of our geometry settings, it slackened the cockpit and reduced the climbing ability that we initially designed into the bikes. With the Offering, we steepened the seat angle 2.2° which lengthened the reach 25mm, putting the medium Offering at a 77° seat angle with a 461mm reach, while increasing front to center by 14mm from 759mm to 773mm over a Wreckoning. We have effectively made the medium Offeri...

Bolt on Axle
Our new axle bolts directly into the derailleur hanger for stiff hassle free operation.
Custom ISCG05 Mounts
Custom ISCG05 tabs to accommodate our lower guide collaboration with e13 components.
Completely redesigned with a focus on simplicity, weight reduction and strength. We increased lateral frame stiffness with redesigned dog bone links that use integrated forged bosses to connect the linkage and simplify maintenance.
Molded Rubber Downtube Protector keeps rocks and debris off the plastic and quiets the ride.
Fully integrated carbon chainguide to keep that chain on.
Internal routing for stealth dropper posts. Rear derailleur and brake routing is cleanly routed under the toptube and the rear derailleur cable is internally routed through the swingarm to keep things tidy.
Uni Directional Carbon with One Piece Molded construction from one of the best factories in the business.
Integrated rubber protection for the chainstay and seat stay to keep things peaceful and quiet in the woods.
We added a fancy integrated SAG meter into the non-drive side Delta Link to make suspension set up easy. Push it forward, sit on your bike, adjust air pressure to 30%, then shred.
Lower shock mount drain
We added two little drain ports to recycle all that mud back on the trails and make cleaning easier.
