SCRAMBLER 18″ PRE-ORDER DEPOSIT
Introducing the Scrambler, the most exciting adventure bike you’ll ever ride. Heading our way with an ETA of September, this is a chance to reserve one for a small deposit. Please read the full product description below for the full lowdown.
Say hello to the Scrambler. In an age of ‘downcountry’ and other such marketing gibberish, you’ll be pleased to know that this too has its own fully formed tech term, yep, this here is a radventure bike. Or more seriously, it’s a bike.
So what’s the score with the Scrambler? In short, it’s a ripsnorting trail bike with all the mounts I could think of to turn it into a ripsnorting adventure rig. The geometry is cool – back to lovely short chainstays – 67 degree head-angle, dropper routing, biplane forks, 3 of the nicest colours known to mankind. This one’s designed around B+ but will also be sweet with a 29+ front/regular 29er rear combo. I believe it will be the most exciting and capable adventure bike it’ll be possible to buy. Alternatively build it up as a stripped down, plus tyred trail bike and it’ll act like a big BMX, ready to hurl you down the sketchiest trails with utmost excitement.
So where does the Scrambler fit in the Stooge canon? Like all my bikes, its designed to be a great all-rounder, but if I had to place it I’d call it a cross between the Speedball and the MK4. Its designed to be supremely comfortable for the long haul but also a very lively, exciting bike to ride. Its not designed as a direct replacement to the MK4, and I’ll make no claims about it being the latest and greatest, this is simply about me designing another cool bike that I wanted to make it into the world.
Here are a few features: biplane fork with 57mm offset. Boost spacing front and rear, just so you can get wheels off the shelf more easily. Triple cage mounts on fork legs, under and over the downtube, rack mounts on the forks and the frame. 30.9 seatpost size with internal dropper routing. EBB for easy singlespeeding.
Colours: Ochre Yellow, Mossier Green, and Vintage Rose. There will be 70 x 18” frames in total and 30 x 20”. The 20” will only be available in the ochre and the green. If you’d like to pre-order please leave your colour choice in the note section of the order process.
So here’s the score with the pre-order. £50 deposit reserves one in the colour of your choice, with the balance to be paid once the framesets are ready for dispatch. For overseas customers, the website will charge carriage when you place the pre-order, if you just want to pay the deposit at this stage give me a shout and I’ll send a PP for this without the carriage charge.
Timescale: The frames have been in production since March. I’m realistically expecting to see stock at the tail end of September. Any earlier and its bonus.
Final price is very dependant on what happens with the pound in the coming months. I’m aiming for £600, worst case scenario £625. Its still a lot of frameset for that kind of money compared to the competition. What I won’t be doing is suddenly hiking the price. It will be as low as its possible for it to be.
Big thanks to everyone that comes on board with this, your support and custom is much appreciated as always. Any questions feel free to fire them my way via the contact page.
