Framed Bikes had been doing testing on different geometry and frame finishes for the rest of their lineup and hit gold. This bike rides like it looks…gorgeous! You can put anybody on it and they quickly find their comfort zone, especially on the trail. The video filmed with one of Framed's riders (below), was his second day on the bike. This frame doesn’t look like the rest of their alloy lineup because all welds are sanded before painting to give a smooth, almost-carbon look.
Pair this frame with 100mm of travel given by the Rock Shox Bluto for an amazing trail bike. The Bluto allows you to take your trail riding to another level…keep your speed up and your front tire on the ground while you charge through single track. We run 80mm rims to allow quick, easy and well performing transitions from 4” tires to 4.7”, rather than needing a different rim for each size. Stock build comes with some of our favorite fat shoes…the 120TPI Maxxis Mammoth 26x4” tires.
The bike also comes with a Race Face Turbine Fatbike 190 mm adjusted cranks (Light, Stiff, and Fat Specific). Yes, it pairs with the frame set like peanut butter and jelly…we know. Shifting is driven by SRAM X7 on a SRAM 10 Speed rear cluster of 11/36T. Afraid you won’t have enough range? The front chain ring comes as 32T stock but can be easily changed out to a 30T or 28T for lower gearing in winter. Want to really up your ante? Throw on a Wolf Tooth Cycling 42T giant cog specifically designed for SRAM timing. Some call this the poor man’s 1X…we call it bad ass!
Please Note the production bike will have internal cable routing on the top tube and seat stay.
