GLACIER BIKES OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES NEW MOUNTAIN LINE, ROAD, AND ADOPTS THE BB30 STANDARD

News

Glacier Bikes is proud to announce major evolutions in its line up for 2010. Beginning next March, Glacier Bikes will expand its line up by offering a redesigned road bike, a time trial bike and a hard-tail mountain bike. All will continue to be made from the super high modulus Mitsubishi TR50-15L carbon and will carry on the tradition of top of the line performance and comfort.

“With the phasing out of the Ice Storm series, our flag ship frame set, we saw 2010 as the ideal turning point to expand our offerings”, comments Peter Sejrup, President of Glacier Bikes.

The new road frame, called the Storm C, will feature a compact monocoque frame with carbon drop outs, a tapered head tube with carbon bearing seats, and a design concept called the “G” spot, exclusive to Glacier. The new Time Trial/Triathlon frame, called the Ice-T, will also be a monocoque carbon frame with tapered head tube, internal cable routing and 45deg drop-outs.

Both the Storm C and the Ice T will be offered with the BB30 standard bottom bracket, but Glacier has taken the lead by also including an adaptor with all frame sets for the use of the current 68mm standard English bottom brackets. “We see the BB30 as the future for cycling, but didn’t want to force our customers into replacing part of their drive train when they buy our frames”, informed Sejrup. “Now the choice is in the customers hands, where it belongs.”

Lastly, Glacier will introduce a top level monocoque carbon mountain bike, called the ZerooC. The ZerooC frame design is monocoque carbon and will be offered with the 68mm bottom bracket standard in a disc brake only design with a semi-integrated head tube.

Glacier bikes will show case the new line up at the Toronto International Bicycle Show, March 5, 6 and 7, 2010. For further information, please contact Peter Sejrup at 705-749-4989 or at peters@glacierbikes.com.

    Kinda dumb the mountain bike doesn’t get the BB30 or the tapered head tube like the road models. If they were really paying attention to the trends they would give it both and make it a 29er.
