This Frame is Mountain XC meets Gravel or Monster-Cross. Designed to be versatile, running drop bars or flat bars, this bike will take you out the back of beyond, all from your doorstep. Some might say that this is back to where mountain biking began in the 1980's. Monster Cross have been over shadowed recently by the popularity of Gravel riding, however riding rigid with wider tyres is less punishing. Fitting up to 29x2.2"" tyres, this bike will not punish you unless you want it too.

The place and ride that this frame is designed and named after:

The Karapoti Classic is New Zealand's longest-running annual mountain bike event, started in 1986. The KARAPOTI Classic was my first MTB race.. This would be my choice to take on the KARAPOTI.
