"Just because I ride a steel hardtail doesn’t mean I’m a curmudgeonly retro-revivalist luddite. I have a beard because it keeps me warm, that’s all. I started riding mountain bikes years ago and I’ve been through enough flavours of bikes to know what’s worthwhile and what’s BS. I want something that will get me to the top of the hill or mountain with minimum fuss but I need something capable for when I want to charge into steep, rocky, roots trails. I don’t want to ever have to think whether I have the right bike for the job, just one bike no matter how long or how gnar the ride becomes. I want something that is designed by guys I know I can trust and is handmade by someone I respect. I want something simple because most stuff is unnecessarily complicated, but I want it to be absolutely up-to-date, including rolling on 27.5-inch wheels. Back To The Future at 88 miles an hour!"
Midweight, All Mountain
The Samurai is our longest running and most evolved frameset. For 2017 it undergoes several changes including updated geometry, new features, and compatibilities.
Made in Canada by fabricator, Mike Truelove, the Samurai is our 27.5 wheel, all mountain hardtail. The newest version features longer front end geometry with relaxed headtube and steepened seattube. Oriented to longer travel forks, the Samurai positioning is readjusted for the best balance of direction control and stability. It also includes boost rear wheel spacing, tapered headtube and stealth seattube routing. A new machined yoke pared with the boost layout means that we can increase tire clearance significantly. For those interested in dabbling in the future option of 26+, there is clearance to explore that route.
