Knolly Bikes has a new party hardtail on offer with their 150 or 160mm forked steel and titanium Tyaughton hardtail. The burly triangles rest atop a pair of 29″ wheels, with smart-looking angles and space for all the loam.
Small through XL steel frames will retail for $1,099 and the proprietary titanium tubes go for $2,999. Complete build prices are set between $3,599 and $6,099.
On those angles, the Tyaughton frames get a 64.5° head tube with a 150mm fork that slackens to 64° with 160mm of travel. The effective seat tube angle is set at a slacker 75° that will steepen with sag. Medium frames offer a 468mm reach measurement and 636mm stack height. All of the frames have uber-short 427mm chainstays that should make them easier to get off the ground, and the average 323mm bottom bracket height looks just right for hardtail fun.
The new bike keeps all of its cables and BB bearings on the outside, apart from the dropper command that runs inside and can be accessed via a door beneath the down tube. The rear axle spacing is a broad 157mm wide, making space for 2.6″ wide rubber while a flat plate behind the chainring makes room for a 36t ring if that makes your legs happy.
