Bikepacking - going beyond...
Most bikepacking bikes are designed to use wider tires than traditional mountain bikes. Common tyre sizes used on bikepacking bikes range from 29"x2.4" to 27.5x3.0", depending on the frame and wheel size. Coupled with a Rohloff Speedhub or Pinion Gearbox these are low maintenance, long distance machines that will go further than you.
Cross Country upto 29x2.4 inch
The LAMB geometry is where 29er mountain biking evolved and settled down into long distance race scene. This is a tried and tested 29er geometry designed for 80-100mm suspension forks. Rotational weight on XC tyres have got better and thats why the LAMB fits from 2.0 to 2.4" tyres. This geometry might look old - however it works as it has evolved over time.
Also available with a Pinion Gearbox
Cross and back country
The Ginger Fox is smart and as Fast as feck. If Tomac had 29" wheels NORBA would have been on fire. This bike has all of the modern features, that has advanced weight saving components. This frame has internal cable routing and is discrete enough to use wireless.
With a massive 54mm bottom bracket this bike can handle internal cable routing. This frame has an EBB30 based on 54x68mm bottom bracket shell. We have been developing this with RIDEWORKS based on their PF30 EBB 42mm design... however 54x68mm is the Bushnell BB standard with more throw. The main advantage is BB adjustment, but also internal cable management. The RIDEWORKS EBB54 is a clean solution allowing both brake and gear cabled to be run over or under the BB shell.
Backpacking Plus upto 29x3.0 inch
The TIGER geometry was developed around big tyres and longer suspension than the LAMB. It has a longer reach and lower bottom bracket for stability. Plus tyres means more grip and less need for suspension. Like the LAMB the TIGER can be run with drop bars or flat bars.
Back Country Trail upto 27.5x3.0 inch
The concept behind the SWAN was to have a design that works with 2 tyre formats...
Plus sized 27.5x3.0" tyres for grip and 29x2.4" for speed. This geometry was developed around the dropper post and Pinion Gearbox, however we do a derailleur, single speed version as well for riding around the trails with your friends.
This frame is versatile enough to run a 130mm fork with 29er wheels or a 150mm fork with 27.5 wheels.
