Crestline Bikes on Adaptability, Collaboration, & Founding a Bike Brand (Ep.128) |

Crestline Bikes has been teasing some extremely interesting-looking prototypes — especially their high-pivot VPP DH bike — but details on the project have been scarce. So we sat down with founder Troydon Murison and suspension designer Jimmy Davis (of Cascade Components) to talk about the project, including a whole lot of details on their upcoming lineup; founding the company & involving some big names, including Jimmy and Cesar Rojo; getting advice from Greg Minnaar and Neko Mulally; & much more.
