Launched in 2017, the Moxie has redefined what’s possible from a steel hardtail.
It takes moxie and a no-compromise approach to frame-design to develop a bike this capable. We started with a blank page, designed the frame we envisaged then had our engineers work out how to build it. Custom-made tubing was the only way to do it. Special butt profiles and multi-butted tubing avoid the use of gussets and the results are clean lines and super-strong joints. Custom CNC yokes not only enhance the performance and strength but give an aesthetic rarely seen on an ‘off-the-shelf’ frame.
Updated for 2019.
As wide profile 29er rims and tyres are now more easily available and more commonly used, the chainstays (CS) have been increased by 10mm in length to better accommodate them and create more CS/tyre clearance. The adjustable dropouts now offer CS lengths of 425-441mm (previously 415-431mm) so you can find that sweet-spot or run the bike single-speed if you’re really hardcore.
With most riders opting to use longer forks, the seat angle has been steepened. This shortens the effective top tube length (ETT) by approximately 13mm/0.5″ (without changing the reach) and keeps you more centrally positioned ‘in’ the bike instead of being pitched backwards with the longer fork. It also means your’e not as stretched-out while seated, giving greater control and manoeuvrability. With the steeper seat angle and shorter ETT we’ve been able to slacken the head angle for improved confidence in the steep stuff without compromising handling or the eMTB-like climbing abilities of the bike.

Our mission is to create the most aesthetically beautiful and highest performance steel and titanium bicycle frames.
There’s a beauty about a bespoke frame but – not to take anything away from the artisan builders – price and reason often limit what can be built when it’s a one-off. We’re able to push those boundaries.
As a designer of small batch frames using possibly the best steel and titanium frame-building factory in the world, we’re able to design and manufacture the optimal parts and custom tubing so you can have a high performance bicycle frame at a price that doesn’t cost the earth.
It’s been said that perfection’s been achieved, not when there’s nothing left to add but when there’s nothing left to take away. The reality is, there are few things that are perfect, especially where art, design and engineering meet. But when these 3 elements are in harmony, it’s about as close as we’re going to get.
With the engineering and manufacturing technologies available today there’s few reasons to accept the compromising ‘solutions’ so commonly accepted. With each frame we design, we look for creative and aesthetically pleasing simple solutions: this simplicity will often result in clean lines or swooping curves and features that set our frames apart from the crowd. Crucially, they also deliver the performance and strength where and when you need it.
We’re not going to claim perfection – that’s for you to decide – but we’re striving for it!
“Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

Current dropper posts offer around 100-185mm of adjustment allowing a wide range of riders to fit a frame with a 16.5″/420mm seat tube.
Typically, a riders height is 2.5x the distance between the crank centre and the saddle, or alternatively, saddle height is rider height divided by 2.5. With the appropriate selection of dropper post (minimum insertion/maximum extension considered) the Moxie will typically fit riders between 5’5″ and 6’3″ (1.65m-1.90m).
The table below illustrates recommended fitting with saddle height measured in mm from the centre of the bottom bracket to top of the saddle.
|Rider Height||Recommended Size||Recommended Dropper||Saddle Height (approx)|
|5’10″/1.78m||Long or Longer||125/150/160/170/185||710|
|5’11″/1.80m||Long or Longer||150/160/170/185||720|
|6’0″/1.83m||Long or Longer||150/160/170/185||730|

All of our frames are have ED (Electrophoretic Deposition) treatment. This covers every surface, inside and out, with a uniform non-porous layer which protects the frame from corrosion. The frames are then painted.

Recommended fork length 555mm (+/-20mm). DVO Diamond, 27.5" @ 160mm or 29er at 140mm are both 555mm axle to crown.
ZS44/28.6 (top) and EC44/40 (bottom)
73mm threaded (external cups)
31.6mm seatpost diametre. Maximum insertion/usable seat tube is 260mm. Fittings for both internally routed or externally routed dropper cable/hose.
Frame is optimised for 27.5+ or 29er wheels.
Maximum recommended: 27.5×2.8″ or 29×2.5"
148mm x M12 (P1.75) rear axle supplied with frame.
The Moxie uses custom butted, heat treated, CrMo 4130 in the front triangle and heat treated CrMo 4130 stays.
