The CORROUR is named after the train station in "Trainspotting" at the foot of Fort William. There is also a loop where you can cycle out and catch the last train back. The Corrour is a hardcore "Trail" hard tail for a 150mm Long Travel Fork.
The CORROUR is similar to the Mokihinui, however we took your suggestions onboard and designed it for longer forks and 148mm Boost Rear hubs... The 148mm rear is backward compard compatible with 142mm, by adding some 3mm plates to each side of the RocknRollout Dropouts.
This frame has the same versatility, fitting 2 tyre sizes 27.x3.0" and 29x2.8". This frame has Trail geometry with 66deg head angle, long low top tube, dropper seatpost (geometry) and Rocker Split Dropouts for belt drive.
TRAIL vs GEOMETRON
Geometron is not for everyone. Me for example. I do not have the skills and have admitted that I probably never will have the skills to go down super steep descents without bottling it, and hauling on the brakes.
Long travel geometry, often referred to as "Geometron" geometry, has been gaining in popularity amongst mountain bikers in recent years. With the increased travel, riders are able to tackle more technical terrain and take on bigger jumps and drops AT SPEED. While this type of geometry has its advantages, it also has some drawbacks that should be considered when deciding if it is the right choice for you.
"Geometron" hardtail geometry, this geometry is designed for a more aggressive rider who wants to tackle steep technical terrain at a faster pace. It features a longer top tube, slacker head tube angle, and steeper seat tube angle. With a longer wheelbase, the bike will be less maneuverable and, combined with the slack head angle, can make it harder to keep the bike upright and in control. This can be especially problematic in tight switchbacks or when riding in technical terrain. This can make it more difficult to accelerate and climb, which is an issue for those who want to use their bike for more than just downhill riding.
Before "Geometron" geometry there was "Long-Travel" or "TRAIL” geometry. As riders started to adopt 29er wheels, fork manufacturers also developed longer forks. Trail geometry is designed for a rider who wants to ride trail centres or tackle more technical terrain at a slower, more controlled pace.
The Corrour has TRAIL geometry, as it is more predictable and therefore more versatile and useful.
