The Reeb Cycle from Oskar Blues

Reeb Cycle from Oskar Blues

The Colorado brewery famous for its canned beer — making it easy to transport on hikes, bike rides or the occasional backcountry trail run — is launching a new mountain bike company REEB. That’s beer spelled backwards.

“It’s kind of like a mullet—bikes up front and beer in the back.” Oskar Blues marketing director Chad Melis told Bicycling magazine.

Oskar Blues has long been a friend to bike culture, including its current holiday bicycle donation program for the underprivileged as well as mountain bike racing sponsorship.
