Full suspension mountain bike

This is a full suspension mountain bike designed for trail or “enduro” riding. the frame is from walnut and London Plane. Both these woods are strong and resilient. The core is hollow which allows for internal cable routing through plastic sleeves so that the cables can be easily fed through

this was new in 2015

heres the construction and out for a ride:

The bottom bracket uses the Praxis PF30 system which is strong and stable under load:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This bike has a 2 speed front mech. The suspension linkage is made from Aluminium and the pivot points (bearings) are brass lubricated with copper slip grease. This seems to work well.

The front head angle is quite slack .  The wheels are Crank Brothers tubeless although I run them with tubesbike1

The rear mech and drive are Shimano Deore which works well and there is a clutch on the rear deraileur arm to stop chain slapcropped-bike21.jpg

The bar is Crank brothers and the head tube is designed to take a tapered front fork. The one here is the Fox float

recent mods include : repacement of Fox front forks with Rockshox, replacement of cassette with a much larger one, tyres replaced with Schwalbes for faster running. I use it every weekend.
