Mountain Goat Ti

Here is the latest Goat to hit the shop. This is our first frame from David at Pride Cycles and it looks great. Once we get the fork for the frame, we'll be shipping the fork, frame and Ti Goat Horns to AirArt for a new coat of Bamboo paint! Should be a pretty slick ride. Can't wait to get this one back from paint!

Whiskeytown Racer pictures

Here are some better pictures of the bike from the latest installment of the Specialty Files in Dirt Rag. We recently redid the bike in something of a "neo-retro" style. Phil Wood hubs, Paul Thumbies with carbon SRAM 10 speed shifter, home made 2 x 10, Panaracer Timbuk IIs, silver hubs/rims/spokes, Grab On MTN grip, Ti Goat Horn bars, team orange/green paint, polished crank and brakes, Eriksen Ti post...........I think it came out great and has a neat blend of new/old.

Whiskeytown Racer in Dirt Rag #149

I've been writing a series of articles for Dirt Rag magazines which they call "The Specialty Files". Each month features a different vintage bike from the MOMBAT collection. I try to come up with a story for each bike. This month, I chose my Whiskeytown Racer which was the first bike from the "new" Mountain Goat Cycles, circa 2006. We chose parts that combined the new and old with thumbshifters on Paul Component mounts which shifts a 10 speed cassette. It also features our reissue Panaracer Timbuk II tires, Grab On MTN1 grips and titanium bull-moose style handlebars.

Imported steel Goat Horn bars IN STOCK!

Well, the have finally arrived in the shop......steel Goat Horn handlebars. Relive the glory of yesteryear with the glowing chrome of your very own bullmoose-style handlebars. Specs are as follows: roomy 675mm width, 10 degree rise, 95mm extension (c-c)with a 10 degree sweep.

We originally did some of these bars in USA-made titanium but they ran $425 which priced a few of us out of the market. The imported cro-moly bars come in at an easier to swallow $60. Order on the Mountain Goat Parts page.
