We bring you the UK designed, All Terrain Fatbike frame, the Smokestone Henderson.
After riding various fatbikes; which were mainly designed to just ride on snow, we found a need to design a frame with more all round ability. A frame, which brings the advantages of the larger tyre and matches it to the modern mountain bike geometry.
Our philosophy is to make a true all terrain bicycle aimed at the every day mountain biker who wants to ride all conditions.
The frame is constructed from 6061 - T6 aluminium and is available either in raw aluminium of an colour of your choice.
You can buy frame only or as a complete bike. Contact info below.

What fits what
We are a great believer in keeping things simple, try and use standards that exist and components that you can get in most bike shops.
BOTTOM BRACKET TYPE
We use a proper british threaded bottom bracket suitable for all type of crank. The width is 100mm. You can fit 24mm, 30mm and the new DUB axle size cranks with the suitable threaded bottom bracket.
The headset size is ZS44 top and EC49 lower.
REAR HUB TYPE
The Henderson uses a 177mm width rear hub. We recommend the Hope Pro4.
Like hubs Fatbikes require different cranks to a regular mountain bike.
The Henderson needs the 100mm type, or Fat4 is fitting SRAM. Not a 120mm type.
The seat post size is 30.9mm and the frame can take an internal dropper post, the cable routing exits the frame just above the bottom bracket then has external guides on the down tube, making it super-easy to maintain and fit.
Here is a wheel/Tyre size guide.
Rear axle width 177 x 12mm
26 x 4"
27.5 x 4"
29 x 3"
Note: This is a guide and some tyre manufacturers sizing can be different to the stated size. If in doubt please contact us.
All of our Henderson frames come with a replaceable mech hanger. We have spares available.
The Henderson is designed around a rigid fork with an axle to crown measurement of 483mm. The frame will also take forks up to 140mm travel but the recomended travel is 120mm.
