TERRA

MOUNTAIN

The Terra mountainbike can be ordered with Enduro, Trail or Race  geometry.

I exhibited a Forward Geometry bike with a long front-centre and slack head angle at this year's Handmade Bicycle Show 2021. I can of course build ANY geometry that makes sense to me.

 

Clearance for 27.5 x 2.6" or 29 x 2.4" tyres with a 1X Boost drivetrain. Thru axle rear dropouts are set for 148x12mm "Boost" width. Your frame can be constructed of Rugged, Race or Ultralight tubing according to your riding. A dropper post option with external or internal routing is available. 

Features

  • custom frame tube selection to suit you

  • thru axle in 148 x12mm Boost spacing

  • clearance for up to 2.6" width tyres in 27.5 or 2.4" in 29er with Boost drivetrain

  • standard 27.2mm seatpost sizing to take the edge off bumps with a desirable amount of flex.

  • 31.6mm post sizing for Larger riders and dropper posts. A  DKG brand seatpost clamp is supplied with the frame.

  • threaded 73mm or 86mm wide bottom bracket (BB) in the new large T47 standard or classic "English" BB format for quiet trouble-free operation, The larger T47  enables internal routing of cables when used with 24 or 30mm crank axles. 

I use White Industries and Chris King headsets both of which are available in a range of colours as well as Black. White Industries machine their parts to use the excellent replaceable Enduro Bearings (click here for headset colours). Chris King built their reputation on making their own bearings which are serviceable. Depending on the fork, the Chris King headset is an approximate $80 upgrade.
