Growth is extremely important to me and that is why I am extremely excited to announce a partnership with Culprit Bikes for 2016.
"Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth." Joshua Colp, founder and CEO of Culprit Bicycles knows this quote all too well. Shaking up the bike industry has been his job. Joshua fell in love with the bike industry when he moved out to Taiwan as a missionary. While he was there he started working closely with manufacturing plants and building strong relationships with leaders in the industry. He built a solid base of experience through working with a wide variety of brands, including Token. Josh then got married and his wife pushed him to follow his dreams and to make his designs a reality. Culprit Bikes was born.
Culprit's big thing is being a little different. Look at his bikes and designs, disc brakes??? Culprit bikes created the second ever road disc bike and was the first company, even out of the big boys, to release an aerodynamic disc bike. The Culprit Croz Blade brought some big changes to the bike industry. Now you can turn on a UCI race and see at least a couple bikes with disc brakes. Another big innovation, right on the horizon of production is the Culprit Legend. This thing has been all over the big triathlon blogs and websites. Slowtwitch, TRS Triathlon, Tririg have all written a piece about the Legend. The Legend is one of the big things that got me interested in Culprit. I remember reading some posts on Slowtwitch about the Legend so I decided to send Josh an email to learn more. We sent a lot of emails back and forth talking about the Legend and Culprit bikes in general. The Legend is still waiting on some funding to be able to create the necessary molds. Joshua is an extremely passionate and determined designer and owner. I can see he really cares about creating top of the line product while still affordable and with custom options!
Another thing that makes Culprit stand out from its competitors is the awesome frame designer tool.
If you wanna be pro, you gotta look pro. What better way to look professional and stand out than having a custom painted frame. Yes, a custom painted frame and even better is that it is included in with the frame pricing. You buy a bike from Culprit and you get a custom painted frame, Culprit cycling kit, Culprit mini-tool, and a solid warranty to back it all up.
I am beyond excited to be working with Joshua and his rising brand of Culprit Bicycles. I will be riding the Croz Blade as well as the Bullet for next season. I'd say keep an eye out for me but I won't be hard to miss.
