Frame: 100% full 4130 ChroMoly steel. Double butted down, top, and seat tubes. Externally tapered, ovalized, and dimpled chain stays, tapered seat stays. Brazed on seat collar, reinforced water bottle bosses.
Fork: 4130 ChroMoly double butted tapered fork blades, lugged crown and matching fork end. Designed to be interchangeable with most aftermarket carbon forks; standard cross offset and axle to crown.
E.D. Finish: The entire bike is E.D. coated inside and out. E.D. coating not only improves the quality and durability of the paint, but is the best rust proofing agent going. With the E.D. coating there is no need to Frame Saver the bike, itís already done for you.
Internal cable routing: The internal rear brake routing not only improves the beauty of the frame, but also provides the ultimate in comfort when grabbing the top tube to shoulder the bike. Once you try it, youíll wish all of your bikes (where appropriate) had this feature, and since the entire bike is E.D. coated thereís no worries about the cable channel rusting.
Cross race geometry: This bike was designed to go real fast off road. It features aggressive yet traditional cyclocross racing geometry and goes like hell.
Tire clearance: You can fit 38ícs in this bad boy front and rear, no problem. If youíre running fenders itíll clear 35ís.
Steel tubing: Steel remains the preferred material for those who appreciate ride quality. It is the benchmark that all other frame materials are compared to, nothing matches its ride, fatigue life, or affordability.
Signature Dropouts: Investment cast from stainless steel, featuring built in chain tensioners, and the timeless Hennepin Bridge icon.
Removeable brake studs: This is a nod to our fixie riders. If youíre not using them, remove them for weight savings and cleaner lines.
Subtle fender mounts: We hope you ride this bike in all conditions all year long, so with that in mind we added fender mounts. Since this is a race bike and we think traditional fender eyelets on race bikes are ugly, we hid the rear ones on the inside of the seat stays, and placed the fork fender eyelets on the blade to keep it looking clean.
