Following the release of their full squish steel Full Moxie frame this spring, Pipedream Cycles has an updated version of their popular Moxie titanium hardtail ready for pre-order. The bike’s geometry is now identical to its steel Moxie sibling, and clients can order the frame in size Long or Longer for a £750 down payment, and a total price of £999.00
The latest Moxie Ti frame comes with 16mm of adjustable sliding dropouts so riders can decide bow balanced or whippy they want the bike to ride. As you might expect from a UK brand, the bike has massive tire clearance, full-length shift cable routing, a set of water bottle bosses, an external BB, and a raw Scotchbright finish. This titanium “forever frame” should be easy to maintain.
Pipedream says that the bike’s geo is equally at home in Whistler as is is on a bikepacking adventure. With a 160mm fork, the headtube tilts to a comfortable 64°, with a steep seat tube at 77.5°, chainstays adjustable between 425 and 441mm, and a trail straightening 470-510mm reach on either size. The seat tube on both sizes is a brief 420mm, allowing for maximum dropper length no matter which limousine you want to slide around on.
There will be 24 Moxie Ti frames made, with 12 in either size, based on 27.5″ or 29″ wheel platforms. Each pair of triangles is made of “Titanium 3Al/2.5V, super-butted tubing.” The downtube is triple butted and bent for increased strength, then it’s “horizontally ovalized at the BB for greater stiffness and power delivery,” and the whole thing plays well with forks between 140 and 170mm.
