Hammerhead Bicycles, who are re-launching their brand after an almost decade hiatus, is already changing up the graphics…and cutting you a deal.
“We wanted to start this brand off on the right foot,” says Hammerhead President Scott Robertson, “and we have, with an amazing 29er bike that we are especially proud of, but sometimes your graphic artist twists your arm so vehemently that you can’t help but call Uncle. We are confident in the bike itself, it’s fun as hell to ride, but we recognize the importance of the look as well.”
Their first and currently only model is the Thumper, a 120mm 29er trail bike that Marc reviewed pretty positively. While we really kinda like the small stripes, the artist (in this case entrepreneur) is always their own worst critic. Anyone interested can get a deal on remaining stock of the first run with original graphics. Frameset price is being reduced from $1499 to $1299.
“If you like the graphics, don’t care about the graphics, or know the graphics will mostly be covered by mud, call this first batch ‘limited edition’ versions and save $200,” says Robertson.
New, updated graphics will be released soon.
