“…looking for adventure in whatever comes our way…”
All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment.
A.L.I.C.E. is possibly the ultimate modern adventure bike: whether it’s local gravel-grinding, grand days out, bike-packing or trans-continental journeys, A.L.I.C.E. is designed and equipped for it all.
Reliable, tough and calmly confident, she’s your trustworthy travelling companion. Uncertainty may always be part of the adventure but never for your bike. Whatever the terrain, from grass-up-the-middle roads to endless singletrack (and everything in between), A.L.I.C.E. will keep you, your kit, and your smile safely in place.
With updated geometry and a choice of forks, you can build it your way. The frame will fit a 2.4″ 29er MTB tyre and either fork will happily fit a 2.8″, opening up a world of possibilities and adventures well beyond the beaten path.
Born to be wild.
Limited only by your imagination, A.L.I.C.E. is the bike that every rider needs.
Overnight, overland and maybe even over-ambitious: go further, go higher, cross borders and see wonder-lands [see what we did there?]. Ultimately, A.L.I.C.E. will take you on the adventure that you want.
“…looking for adventure in whatever comes our way……like a true nature’s child, we were born, born to be wild.”

Your frame size will depend on your choice of bars and stem. If you’re planning on building A.L.I.C.E. with MTB bars, then you should consider sizing up. Recommended sizes (below) are with drop bars.

Drop bars typically have a reach of between 70mm and 110mm: the brake hoods add another 30mm (approximately).
