The Adventure Bicycle
This is our first step away from the fatbike as we look to offer frames that are more ride specific, in this case bikepacking/adventure riding.
As mentioned before, all of our frames are born from riders seeing a way to meet the demands of a type of riding. Our team rider Andy Deacon has achieved so much in a short time on His BowTi fatbike and this has been partially down to him switching wheels on occasions to take part on cross country races, long distance rides and so on.
So after a few conversations the idea for a more dedicated frames came about.
Read on below...
Say hello to "Mr Harry"
Mr Harry is designed to take you on long journeys discovering great places in style and comfort as well as thrashing through your local cross country trails.
We opted not follow the 650b gravel trend but stick with 29" wheels delivering mile munching comfort and also catering for tyres from 29 x 2.8 down or 700c tyres of your choice.
We opted to include features such as boost axle spacing to offer great mud clearance, dropper post cable routing, pannier rack mounts, and the ability to fit a 100mm suspension fork.
The bike featured in these images cost £3,800. with the frame only costing £1600. As with all our bikes you can offer alternative specifications or part builds

Lauf TR Boost 29er fork, Upgrade
The Lauf TR Boost is a unique match with today’s lightweight XC mountain bike frames. Nimble, light and ready for adventure.
The design of the Lauf TR Boost is based around eliminating all “moving parts”, and therefore, friction and maintenance. The monocoque carbon fiber structure delivers incredible strength, and the test-fork we have in our lab has already been “shocked” over 170 thousand times, without showing any signs of wear and tear. That equals more mountain-biking than you’ll manage to cram into at least 5 years of action!
The springs on the Lauf forks are made of military spec S2 glassfiber that is extremely tough on hits and flexible in the direction of the travel. The springs have been “shocked” in our test lab over 400.000 times reaching 40mm amplitude every time.
1.000 g / 2.2 lbs
The TR Boost is very light - especially when compared to other boost forks. Be prepared to lift your front wheel over rocks instead of navigating past. The TR Boost is 1.000g.
