Skookum 29er R853 pre-orders
A new addition to the family.
The eagerly awaited Pipedream R853 29er frames will be arriving in February and to avoid the usual chaos and avoid disappointment, we’re taking pre-orders so you can reserve the frame colour and size of your choice.
As an added bonus (and for a limited time only) if you pre-order a Skookum 29er we’ll give you a 10% discount, so instead of the usual £395.00 you’ll get it for £355.00 – that’s a bargain! We also offer deals on full builds and can supply Rohloff hubs and Gates Carbon Drive if you want something a little more exotic.
If you want to see one in the flesh or get a test ride prior to ordering then just give us a call on 07999 442268 or email us using the contact form. We have a couple of demo bikes ready.
So why buy one of these lovely new frames?
Apart from the fact that 29ers are all the rage at the moment and very much in vogue, our Skookum 29er R853 has a number of nice features that you won’t find on many other steel hardtails……
Just like our flagship 26er frame, the Sirius, the Skookum has sliding dropouts so you can easily run it with an Alfine or Rohloff geared hub or even as singlespeed, and all without the need for a chain tensioning device.
Should you decide you would like to try using a Gates Carbon Belt Drive with your singlespeed, Alfine or Rohloff setup, the Skookum also has a coupling on the drive side seat-stay so you can fit the belt.
Again like our award winning Sirius frame, the Skookum has a tapered head tube so it can take a tapered-steerer fork. We can supply a headset for an additional £60.00 (and an adaptor, if necessary, for 1 1/8 steerers) .
The 18″ Skookum’s vital statistics are:
Head Tube Angle: 71 deg
Seat Tube Angle: 73 deg
Fork Axle-Crown: 478 mm (static/unsagged)
Suitable to take a 80 – 120mm travel fork.
Top Tube Length (effective): 600mm
Chainstay Length: 450
Seat Tube Collar: 33mm
