Mountain Bike frames 2

Technical XC

Another frame sized for myself, and the first to be graced with the ‘Taylor’ logos. Designed around a 130mm travel fork, the frame features sliding rear dropouts to my own design, along with a ring reinforced head tube and oversized Columbus Zona down tube & top tube. My intention was to create a less racy bike than the original XC, and to take advantage of the 410mm long Thomson Seat post in featuring an unusually short (15.75”) seat tube for a 5’ 11” rider.
Since completion last year this has been my regular ride ever since. Running tubeless tyres at 25 to 30 psi and fitted with a stubby 75mm stem, this bike can cover the distance on an all day ride, but really brings a grin to my face when the going gets technical. My new favourite. Geometry below:
