The Moxie pushes the boundaries of what’s possible from a steel hardtail to deliver “a bike that really does climb like a hardtail and descend like a downhill bike.”*
It takes moxie and a no-compromise approach to frame design to develop a frame like this: custom-made tubing was the only way we could create the enduro hardtail we envisaged. Special butt profiles avoid the use of gussets and the results are clean lines and super-strong joints.
Neon Pink, Blue,Green
148mm x M12 (P1.75) rear axle supplied with frame.
Special tubing was necessary for this frame as no branded tubing supplier offers a downtube with the specification to build this frame.
All of our frames are ED treated (Electrophoretic Deposition). This covers every surface, inside and out, with a uniform non-porous layer which protects the frame from corrosion. The frames are then painted.

Current dropper posts offer around 100-170mm of adjustment allowing a wide range of riders to fit a frame with a 16.5”/420mm seat tube.
Typically, a riders height is 2.5x the distance between the crank centre and the saddle, or alternatively, saddle height is rider height divided by 2.5. With the appropriate selection of dropper post (minimum insertion/maximum extension considered) the Moxie will typically fit riders between 5’5” and 6’3” (1.65m-1.90m).
The table below illustrates recommended fitting.
|Rider Height||Recommended Size||Recommended Dropper||Saddle Height (approx)|
|5’10”/1.78m||Long or Longer||125/150/170||710|
|5’11”/1.80m||Long or Longer||150/170||720|
|6’0”/1.83m||Long or Longer||150/170||730|
