FAST, RELIABLE AND UNCOMPROMISING
Our classic hardtails are the backbone of our range and showcase the enormous wealth of experience and knowledge we were able to gain in 48 years of bike production and manufacturing. The BIG.NINE and BIG.SEVEN range symbolises the symbiosis between modern frame technology, attention to detail and craftsmanship 'Made in Taiwan'.
6061 double butted and technoformed aluminium frame with more relaxed geometry. Comes equipped with class leading, premium technologies such as smooth welding, tapered head tube, inboard disc mounts, internal cable routing as well as F, C and K-mounts.
Dependent on frame size we offer 650B or 29er versions on our TFS and SPEED frame level. The requirements of smaller riders (reduced standover height, preferred lower cockpit) are best met by 650B on S and M frame sizes whilst at the other side of the spectrum, L and XL only come with 29er wheels. Size M is available in either 650B or 29er.
All models down to the BIG.NINE LITE frame level feature a 30.9 mm seat post, the enhanced connection area increases the strength around the top tube/seat tube join and allows the option of fitting a dropper seat post. Models down to BIG.NINE LIMITED allow internal cable routing for the dropper post while the remaining models would require external routing.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
Our carbon and LITE aluminium models feature a long 422 mm reach, steep 73.5° seat angle, slack 70° head angle and an 80 mm stem (BIG.NINE – M), affording the BIG.NINE next-generation XC geometry. Aggressive agility meets stable calmness; perfect for today’s demanding courses.
