MOUNTAIN BIKE

Hardtail mountain bike frames, designed to handle and ride the way you want. Whether that be XC, or "modern progressive". My take on the recent "Trail" geometry is proving to be a good fit for Australian riding conditions, with a balanced compromise between climbing and descending for effortless handling on a fast-paced singletrack, the ability to gobble up punchy climbs and the ability to negotiate tight uphill corners too.  
 

Clearance for up to 27.5 x 2.6 or 2.8" tyre is possible with a 1X Boost drivetrain and with these tyres the bike is heaps of fun and yet still fast. Thru axle rear dropouts are standard in 142x12mm or 148mm "Boost" width. Your frame can be constructed of Rugged, Race or Ultralight tubing according to your riding. Custom geometry can range from Enduro to Trail or Race.  A dropper post option with external or internal routing is available.
