Mongoose Signs Freerider Romaniuk to 2007 Team

April, 30 2007 – Madison, Wis. – Mongoose proudly announces the addition of freerider Steve Romaniuk to the 2007 team roster. Steve has been a prominent figure on the western Canadian freeride scene and heavily exposed through media such as “Dropin” (seasons two, three and four), the film “ROAM” and his own internet TV program “STUND.”

“I’m very excited to be on Mongoose this year,” Romaniuk said at this year’s Sea Otter “What really surprised me while I was coming on board is that the Mongoose R&D team is basically one product manager, one graphic artist and one engineer – and they all ride. It is a very similar vibe to a small rider-owned company. Everyone at Mongoose has been awesome with welcoming me on board.”

Darren Salsbury, Director of Product Development for Mongoose, had the following to say about Steve Romaniuk: “I’m really excited to be working with Steve. He is somebody who has been riding big bikes for the last seven years. Romaniuk embodies the big mountain riding movement of his British Colombia home turf that is the heart and soul of freeride. I think some of the most memorable photos and video scenes are a result of Romaniuk’s talent to throw down. He will definitely get Mongoose noticed in the freeride world.”

“The added bonus for the Mongoose R&D team is that Steve is also savvy at giving feedback to product managers and engineers alike,” continued Salsbury. “We have been working on some new frames and his ability to put into words what he wants out of a frame detail is fantastic…not every rider can do that. We have been pretty focused on many aspects of suspension designs over the last few years with our FreeDrive suspension system. We know that Steve is going to be a key element in helping refine our freeride designs to work better, be more durable and stay in front of what riders in this segment want out of their bikes.”

Steve’s plans for this year include attending the Qashqai Finals in Europe, Crankworx (Whistler and Winter Park) and the Adidas Slopestyle event in Austria. Confirmed film projects are Kranked 7, CKD2 and Elemental 2.

“I’m very excited to be on Mongoose this year,” Romaniuk said at this year’s Sea Otter “What really surprised me while I was coming on board is that the Mongoose R&D team is basically one product manager, one graphic artist and one engineer – and they all ride. It is a very similar vibe to a small rider-owned company. Everyone at Mongoose has been awesome with welcoming me on board.”
