Handcrafted Excellence, One Bike at a Time

Mountain

True North’s first frames were mountain bikes, and hard-tail mountain bikes are still our specialty. A lot of customers opt for single-speeds, or frames with eccentric bottom brackets that can be set up with gears or single. We are big advocates of 29″ wheels, and the number of 29ers we make dwarfs the number of frames for 26″ wheels we build. Howver, based on rider size and intended bike use, 26″ and 650B wheels definitely have their place.

Some possible considerations for your mountain bike would include:

  • S&S Machine Works couplings so you can take your bike apart and fly with it
  • Equiping your frame to run a Rohloff internally geared hub
  • Flat or drop bars
  • Disc Brakes
