We bring you the UK designed All Terrain Fatbike frame, the Smokestone Henderson.
After riding various fatbikes; which were initially 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.
EXPAND YOUR RIDE
When designing the Henderson we had one clear aim and that was to make a versatile, all-terrain bicycle that's simple, easy to look after and can take you places other bikes can't.
Our compete bikes come in many formats, you can choose from a rigid fork, a 120mm to a 140mm suspension fork, it's up to you.
A Henderson bike will make you smile, it will surprise you every ride, it will put a smile on the face of the people you meet and be the envy of all your riding buddies when they see what it can do.

WHAT COLOUR WOULD YOU LIKE?
Sizes and colours
The Henderson frame is made from 6061 - T6 aluminium, they come in 4 sizes, small to extra-large. More tech 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.

The essential numbers
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 BSA threaded bottom bracket suitable for all type of crank. The shell width is 100mm. You can fit 24mm, 30mm and the new DUB axle size cranks with the suitable threaded bottom bracket. We recommend using a Hope Bottom Bracket as they offer better quality and cover every type of crank.
See Cranks section
The headset size is ZS44 upper and EC49 lower and requires the cups pushing into the frame. We mainly spec Hope headsets in our completes.
REAR HUB TYPE
The Henderson frame has a rear axle spacing of 12mm bolt though axle and the hub width needs to be 177mm.
The Henderson frame is designed to take a 100mm axle crank for a 177mm rear axle spacing. Sram call it Fat4, Hope are simply labelled 100mm, Raceface also,list as 100mm.
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.
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 un the down tube, making it super-easy to maintain and fit.
Here is a wheel/tyre size guide.
