(a.k.a. The Shugmonkey)

Frames and Forks from 1795

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.

Custom fit/geometry is available on this bike.

Note that images displayed on this page may vary from the final build chosen.

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.
