KIBO FRAME & FORKS

The lugged frame is hand built in the UK using the strongest gauge of the quality air-hardened British Reynolds 631 steel, along with British made Reynolds 525 for the stays. The forks are also Reynolds 631.

 

The frame and forks have bosses for three bottle cages, a front low rider rack and rear pannier rack, as well as mudguards.

Tyre clearance is for 26" x 2.2" plus mudguards, or 2.4" without.

We offer both a 1 1/8" threadless steerer for an ahead stem and a 1" threaded for a quill stem.

Why steel? This is an expedition bike so there's only one material suitable for the frame and forks and that's steel. Wherever you are in the world steel frames can be fixed more easily (in the unlikely event that it needs welding...) and on a rigid bike the steel provides a more comfortable ride.

All of our frames are finished to a high standard. This includes facing the top and bottom surfaces of the headtube, reaming the head and seat tubes as well as facing the bottom bracket shell.

 

Colour options are Black, British Racing Green, Dusk Blue and Ash Green.
