Hank Klunker

$450.00

SOLD OUT. We’re not getting any more in the foreseeable future.

Swing a leg over its double top-tube and the nostalgia hits you with a force equal to that time you fell out of the tree house in the first grade. Its extra wide bmx-style cross bar risers let you swoop through turns on the 650B Duro tires in a way that feels exactly like the bike you rode as child, except this time, you don’t have to be back in by 9 PM. No, it’s not the fastest way to the theater or the bar, but it’s definitely the best way. Just because you don’t have a bunch of cables and cogs to fuss with doesn’t make this a downgrade. More so, consider it an in-grade, a bike that’s not concerned with external things like time, and speed, and the state-of-the-art, but one that appeals to your inner senses. So mash a little. Hop a curb, skid through some leaves, then sit up and listen to the sublime hum that is knobbies rolling down the pavement. You know you have a hankering for it.

Description

Shred it and forget it.

Let’s get right down to it. The Hank isn’t gravel fondo UCI adventure certified nor does it sport a press-fit hydraulic 11-speed thru-axle micro whatever. It’s got one speed, a steel frame, and a coaster brake, and that’s exactly why you want it.

The Asylum Hank Klunker first gets its inspiration from mountain-biking’s early Klunker beginnings, days when folks like Joe Breeze and Gary Fisher were fearlessly mobbing down hills on modified cruiser bikes similar to this one, thereby opening the door to mountain biking as we know it today. Second, much like the inner spark that drove our sport’s founders, the Asylum Hank was made to heed the call of your nagging inner child that you just can’t keep quiet.
