A jack-of-all-trades frame: durable, stiff, ready for the worst roads and technical trails. Designed with dirt touring and bike packing in mind. Optimized for Dirt Drops, but you can rock a Trekking bar with a bit of care, no sweat. 1x drivetrains work best on this, or use a Rohloff and get totally buck wild. 650b x 2.4 tires are no problem, and you can clear (with some hamburglary) a 26×3.0 tire with a 1×11 drivetrain. Preorder today to start the custom build process. Delivery is more or less whenever they get here. We reckon July… but that’s an ETA. Be flexible!
It’s got rack mounts and water bottle bosses just were you would expect them and a nice long head tube, to get you in a comfy spot, for long days in the saddle, without a Fugly tower of spacers.
The dropouts are Paragon rip offs, so you will be able to run thru axel rear, skewer, geared, single speed or a Rolloff.
( Note: Dropouts are NOT Paragon made, they are Taiwanese copies, designed to accept Paragon inserts. If you buy replacement Paragon inserts and they don’t for some reason fit, please contact us and not Paragon to resolve the issue. We have not had any issues, I just want to make it perfectly clear that if an insert did not fit, it should not reflect negatively on Paragon, because Paragon did not design or manufacture the frame components.)
The front fork is a 15mm thru axel.
The post is 27.2. Head tube is 1 1/8″ and the bottom bracket is a 73mm English threaded.
135mm rear hub, normal stuff there. If going 26×3 with the tires, call us, and we’ll tell ya how to make a full spread of gears work.
All sizes have sloping top tubes of different angles and a relatively large head tube extension to create more standover clearance and achieve a more comfortable bar height.
The “Imaginary” seat tube length is measured from the center of the bottom bracket to the intersection of an imaginary level top tube. This is sort of the same idea as “Effective” top tube lengths.
Bottom bracket height, standover clearance, and trail are all calculated with a 356mm (14″) radius tire.
This frame was designed around 26+ tires, you should also find plenty of clearance for 650b x 2.5″ tires.
