HOODBIRD FRAME

$354.99

 
Clear

Morgan wanted his frame tall, strong, and fast handling. After plenty of test riding, we checked all the boxes with a 9.5” stand-over with 5” head tube, Supertherm front end with double gussets and a 75.75 degree head angle-making this the tallest and steepest frame we’ve made to date. Thick quarter-inch (6mm) drops with a medium length slot offer tons of strength and adjustment. For all the riders that run brakes we added our 5 degree angled brake inserts for better cable alignment, and we offer a matching 5 degree angled cable stop to further improve cable alignment if necessary. For ease of BB bearing removal without damage, we included our EX-out punch slots to the BB shell. Custom hand drawn graphics from Eben Fischer!

“The Hoodbird is tall, fast and strong. Made in America with double gussets and 6mm dropouts so strength is no concern. Tall and steep 5 inch head tube with 9.5” standover. You’re set for takeoff with a Hoodbird under you. “ – Morgan Long
