Altruiste Bikes owner Gabriel “Gabo” Lang just won Best Mountain Bike and Best Bike of the show at the 2018 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. You might wonder how is this relevant to The Rise? Well, beside being friends with Gabo for over 10 years, he’s the one building our Partymaster frames! There are many reason why we picked Altruiste Bikes our frame manufacturer, but the main reason is that their quality is on another level, period. At this year’s NAHBS, Altruiste unvealed it’s yet unnamed Enduro bike and took the win for both Best Mountain Bike and best overall bike, becoming the firt Mountain Bike to ever win that title in the history of NAHBS! With it’s asymmetric design using a concentric swingarm pivot, this thing is pretty much the nicest Enduro bike ever seen on planet earth.
