Framed had been doing testing on different geo and frame finishes for the rest of the lineup and hit gold. This bike rides like it looks…gorgeous! You can put anybody on it and they quickly find their comfort zone, especially on the trail. This frame doesn't look like the rest of their alloy lineup because all welds are sanded before painting to give a smooth almost carbon look.
Pair this frame with the Alaskan Carbon Fork for a lightweight and responsive ride. Or pair with 100mm of travel given by the Rock Shox Bluto for an amazing trail bike. Framed designed the frame around an 80mm but you should be able to stuff a 100mm with a 5" tire in the back.
