WHEEL AND TIRE OPTIONS

MADE FROM SCRATCH

 

Meet the bike that was once only viewable by spy satellite. The product of three years of testing, research, and constructive criticism, we've hit the ideal mix of utility, speed, good looks, speed, durability, lightweight, speed and more good looks. It's also fast.

 

This isn't just the bike that replaces your old aluminum fat bike. It's the bike that replaces your 29er, too. We've stuck with 197 rear hub spacing so you can run five inch tires front and rear, a 150mm front hub so you can use your ricoCHET and Industry 9 hub with a Bluto or our Blitzen fork. The geometry is all about quick handling, sharp climbing, and the ability to fit every rider well.

 

We've hand-picked our favorite parts from SRAM, RaceFace, Thomson, Ritchey, WTB, DT Swiss, Industry 9, Schwalble, 45NRTH, and HED Wheels to offer the perfect components for each build, all on a lightweight frame that's still tougher than snot and smoother than butter.

 

All Balthazars are eligible for the Signature Series custom paint program. Every once in a while we will design and produce a few custom painted frames. On our first attempt we are proud to say that within a week we sold all 4 signature series frames. So, keep your eyes peeled because we will probably paint 4 more soon and then open the flood gates. First come, first serve. Add $500 to the retail price for signature paint.

 

There are a limited number of Large Miami Spice Purple frames still available, and the Medium frames are gone forever! When Miami Spice Purple is gone, we'll have a new color!
