Super Pipes: Dangle Supply Co. crafts quintessential pieces for your quiver
Packing bongs and pipes in your pack for hut trips has always been a hassle — worrying about glass breakage and water spillage usually just isn’t worth it. But thanks to Dangle Supply Co., the problem of smoking weed during snowy adventures has finally been solved.
This side-hustle of a professional mountain biker and a bicycle designer/engineer was inspired by the rise of bike-packing culture when they started noticing cyclists dangling titanium mugs and other gear off their bags. They wanted to create something crazy to add to their hangable gear kits and as cannabis enthusiasts, naturally, landed on an indestructible bong. What began as a sort of inside joke as gifts for their crew took off on Instagram (@dangle_supply) and the duo decided to make it official, launching Dangle Supply Co. in 2018 amid their full-time gigs in Los Angeles and Bozeman.
While the co-founders’ real identities were requested to remain anonymous, their alter egos Dan Gullbongs Jr. and Danny Gullbongs act as the company’s CEO and CDO respectively. They credit their father, Dan Gullbongs Sr., in the creation of the original outdoor pipe and the Gullbongs family story goes something like this:
After inheriting their father’s unmatched skill of welding titanium into smokeable art, here are Dangle Supply Co.’s super pipes to consider adding to your kit this season — all unbreakable, non-corroding and handmade with surgical grade titanium.
“Do you believe in magic? Us either. But these pipes will make you kinda look like a wizard or a witch or whatever. They are small, light and made of unbreakable, forever-lasting titanium, plus they look pretty cool. These are heirloom-quality pieces. This new and updated version features a sleeker bend, and tapered bowl, slightly reducing weight, and utilizes SmoothAss® curves technology.”
“This is the bigger version of the WizardStix—bigger bowl and more shareable. It’s super fun to use, you’ll be the life of the hobbit party. Virtually unbreakable and very light.”
“This is the official premium titanium DangleBong waterpipe you have been waiting for. Our virtually indestructible waterpipe system goes anywhere with you and includes one titanium bowl and one high-durability rubber stopper that stows the bowl inside the pipe for when you are on the move. The MeggaSucc® raw bowl is an extralight 8 grams, with a bigger bowl size. The DangleBong BowlHole is 14 millimeters and works with most standard 14 millimeter accessories.”

“Without any exception the worst snow storm known since the advent of the railroad west of Leadville has been raging over the crest of the continental divide since last Thursday,” asserted the Aspen Tribune on January 31, 1899.
