Trillion Cycles are our sister brand. Fabricated and painted by the same team that build the rest of the Shand range. Trillion is the outlet we use for bikes that don't quite fit into the Shand range but are still bikes we want to build and ride. It's the brand we use when we want to test the boundaries a little without confusing the rest of the Shand range. You can read more about Trillion at Trillion Cycles. You can order the bike from the Trillion website or directly from Shand using the order form on this page.
The Shug is a full on trail shredder, designed to take 29x2.6" tyres or 27.5x3.0" tyres for getting even more grip. The Cane Creek Helm fork set up for 130mm travel keeps the stack low but provides plenty of stroke for most trail riding conditions.
The frame is constructed from a Reynolds 853 front triangle with a mix of custom Italian tubing at the rear. UK made hooded dropouts in combination with a 64º head angle and a 75º seatangle make a perfect recipe for an animal out on the trails.
To keep things simple, the Shug is currently only available as a Frame and Fork package. We don't offer this a complete build. If you want a full bike build, get in touch and we can point you in the direction of a recommended bike shop (hopefully near you) who will be able to provide you a complete bike buuilt with the component specification of your choice.
If you'd rather have the Shug painted and branded as a Shand we can do this at no extra charge. Just drop us an email once you've placed your order and we'll make the change.

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.
If you have questions about the frame size and position that suits you best, we can help. Just get in touch to discuss the fitting process and we’ll talk you through our online fitting form. If you already have fit information from a 3rd party, we can make use this too.
As all Shand bikes are built to order, we aim to ensure our bikes fit all customers perfectly – regardless of gender. Read more about how we ensure a perfect bike fit for women.
For specific fit requirements beyond our production frame sizes, we provide a custom fit service to make a bike that fits you perfectly.
