Stooge framesets are designed with one thing in mind, FUN, in big letters. The sweetest handling, comfort, and an insane ability to ride fast and furious over the roughest terrain without the aid of suspension are all key to the Stooge mission. I want my frames to be affordable and inspirational, I want them to change the way you ride for the better. Above all though, I want you to be blown away by how well a rigid mountain bike can ride.
Now in its fifth generation (soon to be 6th), the eponomously titled 'Stooge' is where it all begins. The Stooge runs with slack and low geometry and is designed around a larger offset rigid fork. Designed around a 29x3"/2.6" combo or 27.5 x 3", the handling is sweet and intuitive – singlespeed hack, all mountain trail bike, bikepacking rig – it does it all. Manufactured from aircraft grade 4130 chromoly by Taiwan’s most respected frame builder, the frame features an EBB for foolproof chain tensioning and geometry adjustment.
The Scrambler is my idea of the perfect '1 bike to rule them all'. You can bag it up and ride off into the sunset. You can strip it down and hit the MX track and mix it with the big boys. There's Klunker DNA in here and Stooge DNA too, it handles beautifully, goes like stink and makes you reassess how capable a rigid bike can be.
The Dirtbomb arrives fully formed from a parallell universe where bad things happen to people on normal bikes and the only way to survive is to klunk it like you mean it. But no mind because the Dirtbomb saves the day on every occassion. 29+, modern trail geometry, klunker looks, radness in spades.
