This updated version features tough Broski Sliding Dropouts that allow you to go single-speed or geared or even run hub gears and slightly more modern geometry.
Also new is internal seat tube dropper post routing.
The modified chainstay allows fitting even some double cranks with “plus size” 2.8″ wide tires without needing to invest in Boost parts.
The geometry is very stable at speed and lets you carve corners with confidence.
Tons of fun.
