PBJ - Performance Basket Jammer
The Trusty PBJ - While this PBJ stands for “Performance Basket Jammer” the similarities to the tried and true sandwich are hard to ignore. While it is simple and universal, it gets the job done like no other. It is your go-to, this is the bike you can grab with no plans and take it anywhere. The handling is familiar and playful and it will bring you anywhere you want to go, just don’t forget to pack a sandwich!
The PBJ came about after many tries at making the “perfect” touring bike. Of course there is no perfect one bike, but dangit this one is pretty good at just about anything. Run it with a rigid fork and seatpost and 2.4-2.6” tires for an incredibly capable and comfy bikepacking and bicycle touring bike. Without bags it is fun for jamming on fast trails or urban cruising. Swap out the rigid setup for a 100mm fork and dropper post for a fast and capable XC MTB, or go anywhere inbetween! The Adjustable and modular rocker dropouts mean you can run singlespeed, gears or experiment with different chainstay lengths. I hate to say it, but if I had one bike it would be the PBJ. It really is fun all over. A bike you can truly get to know over many, many miles.
