Our 'do everything' road frame, build it for road, CX, commuting or a bit of everything!
Named after the Monsal trail near our shop in the Peak District, the Monsal frame was designed to handle a mix of road and offroad riding depending how you build it up. With generous tyre clearance, you can run CX tyres or 30mm road tyres with mudguards. Rack mounts even mean a little bit of light touring is possible.
As mountain bikers we couldn't get used to road brakes so the Monsal is disc brake only, paired with the lovely Whisky Parts Co no9 carbon fork. We chose the bolt through option because, again, we're mountain bikers!
If the stock Monsal frame doesn't suit your requirements, we can use it as the basis for a custom frame, or even start completely from scratch. Please email our framebuilder Matt for a quote
