BTR Fabrications launch gravity enduro hardtail frame Ranger
BTR Fabrications have just launched their gravity enduro hardtail offering, the Ranger. The frame has been designed specifically for gravity enduro racing, but is also ideal for trail centre riding and a blast around your local trails.
Watch this video to find a little bit more out about Burf’s and Tam’s philosophy.
The Ranger is hand built in the UK by Burf and Tam using a combination of seamless 4130 and Reynolds tubing. The top and down tubes are double butted for stiffness, strength and light weight. Tapered chain and seat stays reduce lateral flex while allowing for a forgiving ride. The ‘X’ head and chainstay gussets maximise strength and stiffness whilst adding minimal weight. The result is a stable and forgiving frame which screams downhill and climbs with ease.
The Ranger features a 73mm bottom bracket and 135 x 12mm rear dropouts. The ZS44 head tube opens up options for running 1 1/8″, tapered or 1.5″ forks, or even an offset headset. This means that no matter what steerer your forks have, it will fit. The geometry is ideally suited to a 120mm travel fork with an axle to crown height of 500mm.
Full-length gear cable routing helps keep the dirt out and your shifting sharp, while the optional integrated seat clamp keeps things neat and tidy, especially with a dropper seatpost.
