Check out the impressive custom detailing Kona Joe from Ray's MTB did on Tamara Peloquin's Charger!!


Here's what she had to say about the ride:

Top 5 things I LOVE about my new SuperCo SnowWhite Charger...
5 - It is so light!
4 - It is SO light - seriously, she just fly's off the lips!
3 - I feel faster on the ground and more in control up in the air!
2 - After riding her for only 2 weeks I feel my jumping has improved significantly, she gives me perm-a-grin!
1 - Hand built with love, quality and care from someone who truly understands the joy of riding bikes!

"You guys are crazy having your downhill race bike tested on one of Moab's most epic shuttle trails in the dead heat of summer!"

For a behind the scenes look at the insanity that transpired the day Steve Jones and Jane Bentley risked their lives for the Silencer review found in DIRT's issue #92, and more of their stunning photos from that epic Hazard County ride, check out Terry's article in the UK magazine's issue #98, April 2010.

He's been on the bike for two years now. "Love every minute riding it. Suprisingly it still looks as good as the day it arrived, just a few little scrapes."

The Silencer will be at Ray's along with the SuperCrew February 20 & 21 2010.



Wake'ing up in Australia


Posted by superco


Ben took the big leap and he's now the proud owner of the first Superco in Australia.


"Only had a couple of rides at the local BMX track so far, but I'm already loving it. I felt comfortable straight away and already manualed through a rhythm section I've never got close to before." He followed up shortly after with this: "I've had more rides now and I just get this stupid smile on my face every time. The short wheelbase and chainstays make spins and manuals so easy...I'm so happy with it." Cheers Ben!

Crisp Satellite

Cliff-hucking icon and Go-Ride's resident leprechaun, Kris "Krispy" Baughman picked up a Superco Satellite last year. He tells us it's helped him make vast improvements to his park riding. Which must be one of the only two-wheeled discipline's in which he doesn't naturally excel.

Coverage of some good times on Mountain Flyer Magazine.



Prehistoric BMX


Posted by superco


Auto racing historian, former race car owner/team manager and longtime friend of Terry's uncle, Roy C. Morris sent over these great shots from his youth, c.1948


Racer Roy writes, "I had a football helmet that was the latest thing at the time. It was all leather in tan and black but I wanted to look like the racing drivers of that era who wore Cromwell helmets, surplus WW II aviation goggles, and a handkerchief or mask to protect their faces from dirt clods. I painted the helmet blue and white, added aviation goggles, and the handkerchief."

Roy and friends raced on the track he set up on an open field a mile from his West Los Angeles home. He admits he preferred the oval style tracks while others went for what would become known decades later as a typcial BMX style track with jumps and berms.

And we thought it all started with that old Stingray...

Bermin Turman's on a roll


Posted by superco


We were so preoccupied in recent months getting the back-ordered material in that had been delaying frame production, we overlooked posting up this very sweet flyer for the post-Crankworx Colorado jump jam co-organized by SuperCo Charger rider Brandon Turman.

Now the Mustache Ride has come and gone but evidence of the shred can be found here: Click for VITALity.

US National Champs at Sol Vista


Posted by superco


The shop crew is immersed in production now that the back-ordered material we'd been waiting for was received. They'll be staying home to continue production on another run of hardtails and the highly anticipated downhill bike.

The front office is headed to the 2009 US National Champs at Sol Vista this weekend (Jul 17, 18 & 19) to cheer on BRANDON TURMAN, Geoff Ulmer and Jason Memmelaar along with anyone else who's name and kit we know. (We sure wish Leif "LL Cool Tree" Lorenzen was on that list. Next year buddy, factory.)

We'll have HT and DH bikes with us this weekend so if there's time we'll be offering test runs. It's a busy race weekend with a guest rider lining up to race the Silencer so we'll have to play it by ear. Hope to see you there!



Markus's Marauder


Posted by superco


Our thrift-conscious friend Lisa picked up several kids bikes at garage sales looking for something to get her 3-year-old son onto pedals. He's already dropping into the big bowl at the local skate park on his balance bike but he wouldn't touch the bikes his mom was bringing home.

Doc performed minor surgery on one of the many rejects and Markus is now a happy pedaler.

With custom Doc Bars no less!

Turman's Charger


Posted by superco


Brandon Turman is the newest member of the SuperColorado squad with his recent Charger acquisition. Here's a shot of his bike and comments on the ride: "SuperCo NAILED it with this gorgeous bike. The Charger is hands down the nicest ride I have ever owned. The geometry is dialed - it spins, flips, and boosts so easily. It's simple, solid, and quiet, and for a dirt/skatepark/street machine, I couldn't ask for more. Also, the fact that it is handmade really stands out; a quick glance at the welds is enough to see that Doc put his heart into it! This is a bike I'll be on for many years to come. Well done SuperCo."

Silencer Guest Rider


Posted by superco


Geoff Ulmer competed in his first DH race west of the Mississippi River in February as Superco's guest rider on the Silencer. The Mob in Mojave race at Bootleg Canyon was also Ulmer's first time back on a DH bike after surgery and 5 long months of rehab and a treacherous Northeast winter. With just a few practice runs Ulmer was back up to speed and absolutely thrilled with the performance of the Silencer. Thank you Geoff for being our guinea pig! We look forward to seeing you in the Rocky Mountains for more racing this summer.

His notes on the ride: "It's a bike you can go big or small on and enjoy the smoothness it provides in all aspects of the ride. The funnest bike I have ever owned!"



Prototype in Testing

SuperStealth


Posted by superco


Who's the stealthiest of them all?

Mr. Spomer's Charger.

"World's dopest whip."

Mr. Donahugh's XL Charger.

"The bike is light, flickable, pops with the slightest of ease. Inspires confidence on all riding situations from the most techy jump lines to BIG booters. It's fast, smooth, responsive and extremely compliant, smoothing out the worst cased double you could imagine. In just a few rides the bike starts to feel like an extension of your body."

Interbike was productive and fun. Enjoyed meeting people, catching up with old friends and personally thanking the generous folks who were helpful in getting a few projects off the ground. (Magura, Atomlab and SRAM to name a few.)

Mr. Williams on an easy Sunday morning.



Pioneering


Posted by superco


Von Williams is one of the more talented riders out there. His exquisite blend of trials and park skills made him one of the stronger more influential riders in the formative years of freestyle mtn bike comps. It was humbling when the elite rider who continues to shred with epic flow showed up at Superco to buy a bike. Exhilerating to watch him ride it!

Von's bike:


Von's notes: "It's hard to argue with a bike that the first time you ride out the shop door you manual for about 100 feet without touching your brakes. Only to find out in the park and on the dirt jumps it's equally easy to ride. The perfect balance of solid feel combined with the slight forgiveness of steel. Pure joy to ride. The XL frame provides a nice roomy top tube for taller riders, also making bar-spins and x-ups a possibility with plenty of toe clearance for my size 11's"

Most Valuable Player

Mario "Lucky" R was MVP in the team effort that recovered Doc's stolen Hitman a while back. He is also the proud owner of the first Charger in NYC. "The bike rides marvelously. As close to a BMX as you can get on 26" wheels."



First in the UK


Posted by superco


Back in March the first Superco to hit the UK was a Satellite going to Jonny F. "Still can't believe how good the bike rides. Nobody has gotten on it and wanted to stop riding it."

Check out the lowered and polished Marzocchi 4X WC, nice!



Aloha Satellite

Mason C from Hawaii says: "The frame is suprisingly lightweight and has a super clean look that I really dig. Its stiffness and small size makes for a snappy and responsive ride that is tons of fun."

"The Charger is so light and stiff, I am so exited every ride. And I don’t ride other bikes. I only ride Charger now."

For the love of DIRT!

We are thrilled to announce our very first print feature is in DIRT magazine from the UK. You can find the article in Issue #77, on the stands now. Sneak peek here: DIRT UK, Thank you DIRT and crew!

As our first year in business draws to a close, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who took a chance on the new company as you go in the history books as Superco's first customers. Whether you were new to Doc's work or a longtime fan - from Japan, UK, Canada and throughout the United States, we thank you all!

Another round of thanks goes out for the spectacular local support we continue to receive from folks here in Utah and neighboring Colorado.

Full suspension prototypes are slowly making their way from the drawing board to the welding table. The gestation period for Doc's new bikes might seem unbearable to those of you anxious to see what he has in store. Rest assured, we're still on schedule to have them tested by the end of summer and into production shortly after.

Several months ago we made our first visit to Ray's Indoor Mtn Bike Park in Cleveland Ohio. Here's a little video to remind us of the fun to be had there during snowy winter months:



Doc, Tammy Donahugh, Von "vdub" Williams and Gale Dahlager are rockin' the Superco's.
