The Hudksi Doggler immediately caught my attention when it was announced back in September. With little else to go on than a quick product launch video and a few photos, my imagination started running wild with ideas about what the Doggler could do. I’ve been pretty hooked on the idea of flat bar gravel bikes for a while now, an obsession that’s only been amplified during all the time I’ve spent testing and reviewing the more common (and sought after) drop-bar equivalent. MyTrek 520 flat-bar conversionsubdued my desires temporarily, but I wanted more. There was so much about that bike that I liked, but a handful of frame limitations and design choices meant it was far from perfect.
Based in Sausalito, California, Hudski started with two friends wo both have design backgrounds and passion for cycling. The creators of this new direct-to-consumer brand. Will Hudson and Brian Syzkowny, Have always envisioned starting a bike company.
