More than a year since we started planning a range of handbuilt production frames, we’re proud to launch our new frames, all inspired by Scotland’s roads, trails and mountains and the fast and furious cyclocross scene.
The Stoater allroad frame takes its queues from the US gravel grinder and monstercross scene, but reflects the British attitude to steel road and trail riding. Equipped with disc mounts, the frame design allows clearance for mounting a rack and mudguards and the optional adjustable rear dropouts provide flexibility for fitting either a Rohloff/Alfine hub, derailleur gears or a simple single speed.
Whether bashing out 40 miles along road and trails, or a challenging century or two over a couple of days, however it’s specced, the Stoater is all about the pure enjoyment of go-anywhere riding.
The Stooshie is a no frills, Reynolds 853 steel cyclocross race frame equipped with discs mounts and massive tyre clearance to keep things rolling on muddy race days – or longer endurance-cross style events.
At the end of April 2012 we’ll launch the Skinnymalinky road frame. Again built using Reynolds 853 frame and fillet brazed for the same smooth look as the Stooshie and Stoater, it will also come with options for mudguard and racks front and back.
If you happen to be at Bespoked in Bristol this weekend, do come and say hi. We’ve even got biscuits – oh and t-shirts!
