Ok, so this isn’t a bikepacking bike as such… but it sports a steel frame, 27.5+ tires, a 120mm fork, and modern, slack geometry, amongst our favourites ingredients for a fun, trail orientated bikepacking steed. Plus, we really dig that throwback paint splatter finish!
Unfortunately, there’s no water bottle mount on the downtube – though you could always use a Bedrock Honaker, electrical tape, or even rivnut them in. Still, we thought it was worth bringing to your attention because after taking it down some of California’s Northstar trails, it’s certainly a fun ride.
According to the company, The Electric Queen was “expressly made for maximum fun. It had to be gravity capable, climb like a banshee, cruise across town, encourage you to play in the pump track and dirt jumps, and slay single track like no other. It was a laundry list of hopes and dreams and hot dang do we feel like this shred sled delivers on all fronts.”
The bike fits fits 27.5 x 3.0” or 29 x 2.25” tires.Elsewhere, there’s stealth dropper routing, Boost spacing, thru-axles, and 44mm headtube. Head tube angle is 67.5 degrees, seat tube is 71.3 degrees, and chainstay length is 425mm.
