Our lightweight, carbon hardtail frame. 1.1kg. That’s 2.4lbs! Available in 29er- or 650b-specific geometries. Four sizes each. A short wheelbase, aggressive geometry and stiff carbon construction combine for a very racy ride. Named after the tight, twisty, root-riddled and spiderweb-draped trails at Booker T Washington State Park here in Chattanooga, BOOKER T is made for rapid accelerations, precise wheel placement, and high-speed strafing runs. Responsiveness is enhanced by an oversized bottom bracket cluster, oversized square-section downtube, tapered (1.5” to 1.125”) headtube and a 31.6mm seat tube. Accepts “low-direct” mounted front derailleurs and both 135×10 & 142×12 rear axles. With its BB30 shell a BOOKER T can accommodate nearly every BB spindle standard, and by switching to a “mini ecccentric” bottom bracket you can easily create an elegantly lean singlespeed rig.
BOOKER T can be had as a rigid frameset (with factory headset, seat clamp, two sets of dropouts [135×10 & 142×12], and a 585g full carbon tapered fork) for $1500. We also regularly do complete builds on a custom basis, so contact us for a quote and availability. $2500 with the 1×10 SRAM X0-1/X9 kit and Fulcrum Red Metal 29 XLR wheels shown. This setup with XT pedals weighs a little less than 20lbs (9.1kg).
You can further tailor your Moccasin Bend bike by specifying your preferred paint color using automotive paint codes. This service will take longer than purchasing a stock item, but it will not cost more unless you go for some crazy bass boat, mega flake metallic or a florescent. Add $100-300 for these due to higher material and/or labor costs.
For those who like this geometry but prefer the look and feel of steel, check out our LULA model. Handbuilt in Chattanooga, Tennessee!
We want you to have the bike that excites you, makes you proud and coaxes you onto the trail. Please contact us with your requirements, and we’ll let you know what the leadtime and price implications are. Occasionally, some parts are temporarily out of stock with our suppliers. We will contact you with leadtimes and options whenever this is the case.
