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.
SAY HELLO TO "MR HARRY"
Mr Harry is designed to take you on long journeys discovering great places in style and comfort.
We opted not follow the 650b gravel trend but stick with 29" wheels delivering mile munching comfort and also catering for tyres from 29x3 down to 29 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
