    Two New Big-Wheel Bikes From Brodie Unveiled: Khan & Crib 29ers!​

    Source: Brodie Bikes

    When you’ve practically spent more of your life on two wheels than you have on two feet you become particular in how a bike should ride and perform. After riding many different early 29’ers from various brands, our product manager Bruce Spicer was convinced the 29’er just wasn’t where it should be. Plagued by suspension and frame limitations, they were either too raked or too twitchy; they just didn’t ride like a Brodie should.
    The art of having a bicycle steer the way you want it to is having the “trail” of a bicycle fall within a certain range. The trail refers to the imaginary line through the center of the steerer tube and the vertical line of where the center of the hub lies. Fork manufacturers can adjust where the hub lies by offset (by hub placement on the fork legs and/or fork crown spacing). The longer the trail, the floppier the steering (DH bikes) and vice versa the shorter it is, the twitchier the feel (road bikes). When designing our 29’er two key aspects were critical, the fork trail and the chain stay length.

    Until recently, forks weren’t available that would allow us to produce a 29’er which met our expectations. Now that suspension forks are being offered with sufficient offset we’d like to introduce you to the brand new 2012 Brodie Khan; fresh new graphics, 70-degree head tube angle, 100mm Manitou Tower with 51mm fork offset and short 437mm chain stays!
    * Now in stock- Khan and the little brother, Crib!
