As it happens, we have a review due out soon for this very bike. But because we kind of love the way it rides, we figured it would be good share the current pricing in case it’s a bike you’ve been considering.
The completes come with Spyke mechanical brakes, Alex MD40 hoops, WTB Ranger Toughs 27x3in tires, and a 1×11 SRAM GXP drivetrain with a 30T chainring/11-42T cassette. The elegant frames are made from double butted 4130 Chromoly, with a suspension corrected geometry, provision for Anything Cages on the forks, and sliding dropouts for geared or singlespeed setups. Clearance-wise, the Big Bro can run 27x3in or 29×2.4in tires. Stone and an eye-popping Rasberry are the color palettes on offer.
For thoughts and imagery on last year’s model, check out Mike Hayes’ recent Rider and Rig.
In the meantime, we’ll hurry up and get that review published…
