First tested on the streets of Accra, Ghana where the stable yet agile geometry allows one to avoid potholes and aggressive taxi drivers. The bike is great for commuting and handles dirt roads very well. The 700c wheel size and disc brakes make it easy to mount fenders for all-weather riding. They are available with an optional eccentric bottom bracket for converting to singlespeed or internally geared hub use. Designed for use with a single front chainring.
Frames weigh from 3.5 to 5 pounds, depending on the size.
Made for the dirt, this bike will go head to head with any hardtail on the market.

Designed for use with an 80 – 100 mm travel suspension fork. They are available with horizontal dropouts or an optional eccentric bottom bracket for converting to singlespeed or internally geared hub use. 29” wheel option coming soon!
Frames weigh from 4 to 6 pounds, depending on the size.
