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.
“Light, fun and low on maintenance… quiet and satisfyingly smooth… throw in a geared hub and it could, just possibly, be the ultimate go-anywhere bike.”(What Mountain Bike Magazine)Read full review
For the USA, this frame does not have the model name ‘Skookum’ – but you can call it whatever you want!
