2020 Reeb Sam’s Pants and Lickskillet Revealed

REEB Cycles just announced a rehashed 2020 Sam’s Pants with geometry updates, more mounts, and room for 29 x 2.2 €³ tires. They also released an all-new REEB Lickskillet (the perfect bike for conquering the Lickskillet loop at the Gold Rush Bike Rally?), a 700C all-road bike with gravel geometry.

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.

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.”
