Welcome to our first Loam Wolf Edition bike build! Long before we worked in the bicycle industry, we enjoyed customizing bikes and making them our own. With this program we’re seeking to bring a wolfy edge to some of the coolest bikes on the market, and then give them away to our awesome customers.
Our first bike, Boots Electric, is a neon dream we copped from the gracious crew over at Scott USA. Sporting a sexy carbon frame and 160mm of front and rear travel, we knew this versatile all mountain bike would be a solid choice for our first build.
The drivetrain remains largely OE on the Genius. A SRAM GX1 drivetrain balances affordability and performance. Stopping power is handled by Shimano’s SLX brakes, which we’re big fans of. One thing we were excited to replace however, were the Plus size tires. With these Loam Wolf Edition bikes, we strive to build machines that look good and ride the way we’d want our own bikes to ride. Our good friends at Schwalbe North America came through with some 2.6-inch Nobby Nic tires. This helped drop a bit of weight. It should also make the bike a bit snappier and more playful.
