Dirt Tracker

£720.00

Welcome to volume 3 of the Stooge Book of Klunk!

I’ve long held a huge affection for the Tracker bikes that ruled the roost in post war Britain, with their huge handlebars, kinked top tubes and dirt action attitude. This is my great ‘what if?’. What if the Trackers hadn’t died their natural death in the 1970s and continued to develop into mountain crushing, trail slaying, utilitarian ultra beasts?

The finished article is the real deal – as shreddy and offroad capable as all my other frames, as bikepacking and touring capable as the Scrambler, but all wrapped up in a 29+ assisted ode to a glorious, forgotten past.

NB: For USA customers, the total price including delivery will be £770. For EU customers the total will be £655, but you will have to pay import duty and local VAT in the destination country. Long haul destinations such as Australia, Singapore, please contact me for a price.

Description

Welcome to volume 3 of the Stooge Book of Klunk. I’ve long held a huge affection for the Tracker bikes that ruled the roost in post war Britain, with their huge handlebars, kinked top tubes and dirt action attitude. This is my great ‘what if?’. What if the Trackers hadn’t died their natural death in the 1970s and continued to develop into mountain crushing, trail slaying, utilitarian ultra beasts?

So this is my tribute to those fabulous bicycles from that bygone era, bought bang up to date with slack Stooge geometry, clearance for 29+ rubber and all the mounts for those far flung adventures in the misty eyed valleys and peaks of the now. Based on the original Dirtbomb, but with the tank tube removed and a newly designed biplane fork to offer more strength and compliance with an increased offset, this thing rips with the best of them, but like all my steeds will also be the perfect partner for someone that just wants to go for a ride, wherever that may take them. This bike is an absolute passion project for me and something that excites me to the very core.

3 fabulous colours that time travelled all the way from the 1970s – Duster Blue, Rose Tinted, and Sand Rover.

1 size – 18″ with 625mm ETT (459mm reach). This will be good for anyone 5’7 to about 6’2 with suitably sized bar and stem.
