THE TI PIN LS

Extreme Fatness

What is going on...

 
 

THE FRAME

Take a fatbike, mix in a gearbox, then give the rider a pen and....

...we have a truly radical machine.

Liam Crook, our team rider loves his Henderson and has been ripping up the trails not only in his home woods in Cranham, but also several enduro events.

Then chuck in his experience on other extreme bikes and his love of the Pinion Gearbox and you have the recipe for the crazy TiPin LS

 

THE GEARBOX

The Pinion core technology is built around spur gearing. This provides high-precision shifting. Permanently reliable, wear-free, low maintenance. Pinion transmission delivers long-lasting performance and reliability perfectly suited to go with a fatbike. Centrally integrated in the bicycle frame and protected by an enclosed housing, the gearbox is the epitome of innovative bicycle drive technology.

Our first test bike was fitted with the P1.18 version. After many hours of testing we have decided to spec the more affordable and lighter C-Line.

The C1.12, which is 12 speed and has a lighter magnesium casing and still has all the benefits of its more expensive bigger brother.

Full technical information on the gearbox including gear ratios can be found here

 

THE PACKAGE

We offer the frame and gearbox as a package. This includes the C1.12 gearbox, shifter, cables, cranks and chainrings.

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 DROPOUTS

The dropouts are adjustable to tension the chain. The axle is 12mm bolt through

HEADSET TYPE

Integrated headset size IS42 top and IS52 lower. This type of headset does not require cups to be pressed into the frame as the bearings sit directly into the frame.

 

REAR HUB TYPE

You can run a normal Fatbike rear cassette hub as the rear sprocket fits onto the freehub with spacers.

CRANK TYPE

Pinion supply cranks and a spider specific for fatbikes. 

 

SEAT POST

The seat post size is 31.6mm and the frame can take an internal dropper post, the cable routing exits the frame just above the gearbox then has external guides up the down tube, making it super-easy to maintain and fit.
