With a new wheel size on the block, we're proud to announce the newest model to our long travel hardtail range, the 45650B. Using the new wheel size, we reworked our frame geometry to make the most of this new wheel size, and the result is a frame that makes the bigger wheel size, without feeling like it's got bigger wheels. Designed around 120-150mm forks, we love the longer travel for a hard hitting feel that the big wheels love.
Colour options are a painted black finish and a raw finished frame, which is clear-coated but does require some cautions. The Raw Finish is designed to have manufacturing blemishes and might not appeal to all. Also, it's extremely likely that some degree of surface rusting may be present from new or develop over time, though due to the only process that this frame has been through is the first surface treatment in the paint process, the action of that rust on the frame is only as bad as the action of rust on the inside of a painted frame. The frame is coated with a matt laquer, which being slightly porous will allow the steel tubes to corrode, but this, we consider, gives a patina of age and wear (like a nice wok) rather than it being a problem. If you have an issue with this, please select the painted option.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can also depend on a rider’s torso and limb length.
