If you want to lessen your carbon footprint on the planet (I know I’ve got one) there are three things you need to do. First, lose two of your tires. Then go see the guys at Slingshot Bikes in Grand Rapids. Slingshot is a bicycle company that’s committed to Michigan and keeping their products local. If you’re looking for a high performance custom bike to ride, Slingshot will show you the way. Slingshot could go anywhere in the world to produce their bikes, but they stay in Michigan because of the tremendous talent pool here. From welders and powder coaters to engineers, the people, pride and resources are all right here.
Singshot also has something really cool called “Sling Power Technology.” It’s an amazing power transfer design that uses a coil spring to turn the dead portion of your pedal stroke into an additional power source. It sounds complicated, but it’s beautifully simple and absolutely brilliant. You really need to see it to fully understand it. I got to ride one of their amazing bikes through downtown Grand Rapids, and it was a blast.
At Slingshot they are crazy about riding, and they have a singular focus: to help you have the ultimate riding experience. So next time you’re looking for a bike, look at Slingshot. They’re great bikes that are great for Michigan.
