What makes our MTB and gravel steel bikes different ?

The bikes we love to ride are simple, good looking and smile providing, constructed using proven techniques resulting in trustworthy behaviour on the trail: all these requirements made the choice for a hardtail truly clear.

 

With off-the-shelf-frame geometry, we have you covered with a sturdy build backed with a 2-year warranty*. Different models, but one philosophy: steel tubing from the best companies in the world for an unmatchable riding feel and brazing technique for a respectful process, frank and direct communication with the builder, our capacity to understand your needs and put them into forms.

Roomy cockpit fitted to a powerful tail end.

When tailoring our geometries, we took particular care to balance an appropriate reach to chain-stay ratio with every size of frame. We have found out that displacing your weight balance the bike when carving, weight transfer under heavy braking can cause little less damage to the overall stability when the front triangle is larger, paired with an open steer angle. A roomy front centre helps the bike to remain stable, paired with a short stem is key to building up speed and keeping speed.

 

We have integrated in the frame design the latest available long travel telescopic seat post -like 210mm of travel, no restriction regarding frame sizes!- in an upright seat post angle, we have achieved a much safer and confidence inspiring bike, when you need to step down in the funkiest of situations. A steep seat post angle also allows us to run mullet mixed size wheels if you want while still offering good uphill capacities.

From hardtail to gravel, a lot of research to find the best geometries

The special bends that our seat stays are known for are there for vibration dampening, transmitting the exact amount of feedback you want from a hardtail, with comfort as a bonus. The yoke, eg. connection of the wheelbase to the bottom bracket is made of a sturdy CNC machined steel plate including the two ‘05 ISCG lower mounts, oval section chainstay receives a special treatment to reinforce and insure greater durability. 

 

And because there are no two people alike, our bikes won’t fit exactly in one box neither: the different models named using fork travel help you determine what suits you best, but if you are in between and have a special request, please let us know drop us an e-mail.

For a marginal cost, it will be a pleasure for us to accommodate your wishes to build the perfect bike for you!
