This frame is designed by a friend Dan Hunt, we actually talked about starting a bike company together, but decided to become fierce business competitors and rivals instead. Who is leading the race to completely dominate the bicycle industry, I hear you ask? Well I gotta say it is neck and neck and the gloves are off and hopefully will be decided this year at the Hunt 1000.
Anyway enough business insider talk, lets get down to the frame.
29er/29+ Double Butted Cr-mo frame and fork designed for Bikepacking and singletrack.
Its taken a lot of testing and fine tuning but the Hunt Bikes bikepacking/singletrack frames are finally ready and waiting for you to add a coat of mud.
This frame and fork is designed to be your go to ride for any off road adventure. This frame fits your regular 29er wheels for those gravel grinding and single track rides but will accommodate the widest 29+ (3″) tyres for those adventures that get a little further off the groomed trails.
Unlike some other 29+ frames which get stretched out and ride a little slow, the Hunt Bikes frame/fork has been designed to ride more like a regular 29er. This was achieved in part by keeping the chainstays as short as possible with a custom chainstay piece between the chainrings and the tyre.
The frame and forks are built using double butted 4130 tubing to keep things light and maintain a responsive feel while also being a reliable tough frame/fork that can handle a bit of rough treatment.
