"I'm really stoked to be continuing my partnership with Spank for 2010 and years to come,” Berrecloth said. “The entire Spank team is a pleasure to work with and their support for me over the past couple years has been excellent. The line of hardtails are second to none including my favorite, the stylish Tweet Tweet. I'm fortunate to be part of the Spank team and to be able to run their saddles and rims on my Knolly freeride/downhill bikes."
