We’ve compromised nothing on this design and packed it full of features to create the big-wheeled version of our award-winning Sirius. Sharing a number of features from it’s sibling, the Skookum has a tapered head tube and sliding dropouts, making singlespeed or gear hub set-ups an easy option. But that’s not all: the drive-side seatstay has a coupling for Gates Belt Drive.

Other notable features are a Reynolds DZB tubeset has thicker tube ends which allows us to dispense with gussets. Furthermore, with the longer DT found on 29er frames, we’ve used a bigger gauge tube and DZB tubing once again to balance strength, stiffness and ‘feel’.

Finally, we’ve routed the cables under the BB this time so that a single-speed or internal gear hub set-up gives a clean look to the frame with no redundant stops obviously visible.
