Steel the show
We want every bike we make to be something special. When it came to making a dirt jump bike, we wanted something extra special, so we started with the material. Instead of using standard, basic, cheap chromoly steel, we went to the other end of the spectrum. Our inner bike nerds couldn’t help it- we had to make it out of Reynolds 853 steel – the best of the best tubing on the planet for making a steel bicycle. We worked with our team rider Brady Tweedy to come up with the geometry for this DJ bike. Then we named it after him!
We kept it simple with a threaded BB, integrated headset, bolt-on axle and integrated seat clamp. We use an ultra-durable clear coat to show off the high-quality welds on the frame- all hand built by artisans in one of the best steel bike manufacturing facilities in Taiwan. This frame is simple, badass, elegant, and will develop a nice patina under the clear coat with age.

The CBF™ focuses the center of curvature in a very finite area on the chainline/top of the chainring, pointing the pedaling forces directly where you want them.Learn More »

Reynolds 853 Steel
Only the best when going big. Reynolds 853 Steel tubing is the top of the line material for steel bikes. Durable, flexible, and stylish, the Tweedy can handle it all.
Horizontal sliding dropouts
Sliding horizontal dropouts make chain tensioning a breeze so you can lap the jump line all day without headache.
Integrated Seat Clamp
Pop the seat post in and get to riding. The Tweedy's integrated seat post looks good and makes for one less part to track down.
External Brake Routing
Eliminate the headache of routing the brake lines into the frame and fishing them through the back, it's a dirt jumper so lets get to the fun stuff!
We hope to see more in April 2023! These frames are meticulously handcrafted at a small facility in Taiwan, but the raw Reynolds 853 tubing comes from the UK and the ultra-durable clearcoat happens at another facility in Taiwan, so the process isn't quick. If you're interested in getting a Tweedy, we recommend placing an order to get on a waitlist with your local dealer or by giving us a call.
Without getting too material nerdy here... it is undoubtedly the best of the best. Generally, Reynolds 853 is considered the best quality and strongest steel tubing for any sort of bike. It is a complicated blend of iron, carbon, manganese, molybdenum, chrome, and some other stuff that is then cold-drawn and heat treated in a way that makes it far superior to other steel tubing out there. The tubing is double butted to best balance strength, ride quality, and weldability.
We're turning to our youth days here and bringing back the skateboard industry led "pro-model", designing models with the direct input of athletes. We worked closely with our pro rider, Brady Tweedy to engineer the ride of his dreams that in turn, will support his career and outreach. This is a first for the bike industry (that we know of) and seeing how these flew off the shelves, we have no doubt Brady helped us create something very special.
