THE HENDERSON

Fat Trail

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.

All frames start off in a raw state straight from the welder before being painted to order. You then choose your frame colour from a flat standard paint to a super bling candy, flip, or multi coloured. The choice is yours.

USEFUL INFO

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.

REAR HUB TYPE

The Henderson uses a 177mm width rear hub. We recommend the Hope Pro4. 

Crank.jpg

CRANK TYPE

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.

SEAT POST

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.
