Three major updates for Dirt Comp in 2019:
- support Shannon's charity efforts
- celebrate an expanding warehouse (February 9th**)
- announce our frame production
TEAM Triumph, Wisconsin
50% of all Dirt Rasta shirt sales will go straight to myTEAM Triumph in support of their mission of inclusion for differently abled athletes in cycling (exp. 08/10/19). This charity effort was spearheaded by Dirt Ambassador Shannon Chapwesk, and he'll be riding at the mTT Wisconsin chapter's 12 Hour of Road America (https://bit.ly/2sfKwMO).
This unique course is the perfect way to include everyone... no cars or intersections, a short and groomed course, and a group of amazing people will make this event a success.

Bicycle Frames Announced! ETA April '09.
It's official, we're setting up to bring out some killer rides! On the tails of our aluminum rims coming out in late March, we'll have steel Columbus Cromor tubing builds to match! One frame will be our gravel flat or drop-bar option, the other is our hardtail mountain bike. These completes will have all the features and will be offered as either SRAM NX or SRAM Rival, depending on the bar configuration. Frame sets will also be available on their own, starting at $400 for frame only.
Keep your eyes out, we'll be announcing final geometries, color options and pictures soon.
Jig setup, working on plans and lots of practice framebuilding.
Now go find some dry trails and go get some Dirt on your bike!
