Tantrum Cycles Kickstarter is FUNDED
The People have SPOKEN; the Holy Grail of mountain bike suspension will be made available to EVERYONE!
By: Tantrum Cycles
It didn't take long. In fact, a little over 3 weeks into an 8 week campaign, Tantrum Cycles became the fastest funded full suspension bike in the history of Kickstarter!!
Founder and designer Brian Berthold states, "The response and support from the mountain biking community has been incredible. It's a nice affirmation that the market is ready for some disruption. But reaching $50,000 is not the real goal. I would like to triple that number by the end of Kickstarter, Jan 2, 2017." Berthold continues, "The deals we are offering are incredible, some of the complete bike builds are like getting the frame for free."
Tantrum Cycles features the performance long sought by every bike and shock manufacturer on the planet. The ability to climb and pedal like a hardtail and hit the descents like a downhill bike. Only the Patent Pending Missing Link can combine those attributes into one elegant suspension design that uses no lockouts, switches, levers or electronics, yet intuitively provides the optimum geometry and spring rate for the conditions.
The Missing Link has already received rave reviews from the top cycling press, but what do rank and file riders have to say:
"It wouldn't get out of shape when hitting roots in corners at speed. Normally I would expect a bike to feel 'skittery' in situations like that, but this bike felt planted, both front and rear. This is one of the best f*cking bikes I have ever ridden. It's in the 'one bike for pretty much everything' category."
"The Outburst was - I'll just say what I said to Brian after riding through there - it was like cheating. I had all the traction from riding my FS bike through there, and none of the fighting the suspension. Standing up and shifting the bike around, the bike pedaled like my hardtail, but I had traction for days, nor did I ever get the sense that it wasn't THE most plush bike I've ever ridden. Yet, it still pedaled as well - better? - than the best bikes I've ridden."
"The best way to sum up the ride was that it was completely drama free. The rear suspension just seems to respond with exactly what is needed in any situation. I think this ride made up my mind. It was a bit like taking a sports car for a test drive around the block a couple times. You give it a little gas, maybe take an on-ramp or two, a quick 90 deg surface street corner and then park it and hand the keys back. You walk away wishing to take it on a twisty back road or to the track, but alas, not until you sign the dotted line. Yes, I like the bike on paper. Yes, the bike behaved exactly as advertised. Yes, I think it will be my next bike. I'm going to trust that the competency and poise I felt on the short downhill bursts will translate onto bigger terrain. I'm going to believe that the traction and efficiency I felt on these short climbs will carry me up and over the top of something larger. And I have no reason not to. I can't wait for Brian to hand me the keys back." Note, he bought one the next day.
