Adventure 29er and 650B+ steel hardtail

Frames from £1,695, Full bikes from £3,395

The Bahookie is our do-it-all mountain bike. Handbuilt steel frame designed around 29er or 650B+ wheels and a 120mm travel fork. Perfect for bikepacking, adventure racing, flying round the trail centres, heading off for a long day in the hills or a quick blast round the woods after work.

Features include 44mm headtube for the latest generation of tapered mountain bike forks, dropper post compatible with internal stealth routing. 3 sets of bottle mounts and rack mounts make it the perfect adventure mountain bike.

For the ultimate in versatility, the Bahookie features the same drivetrain support platform as our Stoater allowing you options to run the following :

  • Derailleur with 1X crank
  • Singlespeed
  • Rohloff speedhub

This flexibility is achieved by fitting either an EBB (eccentric bottom bracket) or standard PF30 bottom bracket in the 73mm shell. The modular PolyDrop dropouts allow fitting of different inserts to suit different drivetrains. 135x10 Q/R dropouts come as standard on our Rohloff bikes with 148x12 Boost spacing on our geared and singlespeed bikes.

The Bahookie is also beltdrive ready (a neat spitter is concealed within the PolyDrop dropouts) if you want the ultimate in reliability and ease of maintenance (SInglespeed or Rohloff only).

The Bahookie is TIG welded from custom drawn Columbus Niobium tubing. As with all of our bikes, the frame is manufactured by us in our workshop in Central Scotland where we also paint and complete the final assembly.

Custom fit/geometry is available on this bike.

Unless otherwise agreed, all complete bikes will be setup with 10mm of spacers under the stem. Stem lengths and seatpost types (layback or inline) are frame size specific to enable maximum amount of adjustability. We can provide a dimensioned drawing of final setup on request.
