Breezer’s Lightning Pro frame features D’Fusion tubing, new Breeze Thru-axle rear dropouts, and Boost 148 rear hub spacing to confirm that steel is the perfect material to build a light, lively, and durable frame. Short 439mm chainstays provide launch-pad acceleration while maintaining ample tire clearance for traction-soaked 27.5+ or fast-rolling 29er tires. And, a redesigned geometry based around a 120mm-travel fork and a longer, slacker front triangle provides stability and confidence on high speed technical descents.
Jamis hit the sweet spot with the Portal. With 130mm of travel, it offers enough suspension to take on any trail you have the guts to try, but is still svelte and nimble enough to pedal anywhere on the map. The 3VO suspension designed by Chris Currie of Speedgoat nails the bullseye of suspension kinematics: active and stable under pedaling and hard braking but sensitive to small bumps and ready for big, square-edged hits. Add components worthy of this frameset, and you'll have a dream-build that can take you anywhere.
Today, a mountain bike needs to be capable of everything from all day epics to lift-assisted shuttle laps and anything in between. With the chops to accept a 160mm fork and 160mm of rear travel built around 3VO, one of the most advanced suspension designs in existence, the Jamis Hardline fits the bill. Add your favorite hard-liner components to create a tool for any trail, anywhere.
This is the second version of a 650b mountain bike from Ritchey – Tom started to design his first in 1977. Even back then, Tom had a feeling that there was an advantage to the "middle" wheel size, but it took the rest of the cycling world three decades to figure it out: a 650b (or 27.5") wheel provides the bump-eating smoothness of a 29er, with the light, responsive feel of 26" wheels. Finally, the era of the 650b wheel is here. The P-650b is a close relative to the P-29er. Up front there's the proprietary forged-and-machined, gram-shaving integrated head tube featured on all new Ritchey frames. Forged socket dropouts and a new chainstay-mounted rear disc brake mount save a few more grams. And like every frame Ritchey makes, geometry and tubing is carefully fine-tuned by Tom, to bring the legendary balanced, nimble Ritchey feel to 27.5-inch wheels. - Weight: 2,028g for frame (L/17”) - Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5” tapered head tube - Clearance for up to 2.25-inch tires - Fork: Designed for use with 100mm travel forks - Headset: Integrated 1.5” tapered - Upper bearing: 41.8mm OD / IS42/28.6 (S.H.I.S.) - Lower bearing: 52mm OD / IS52/40 (S.H.I.S.) - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Rear spacing: 10x135 - Front derailleur: 28.6 low clamp – top or dual pull - Weight: 2178g / 4.8 lbs (M/17”, frame only)
