THE “ANY MOUNTAIN” BIKE.
We would love to say we designed the Skookum to be our “Quiver Killer”, but what fun would that be? We really designed it to be N+1, with the hopes that it will be the bike you pull off the rack first. We took the things we love best about our favorite mountain bikes; agility, speed and sexy lines, and combined those with the amazing capabilities of a 26″ X 4.8″ tire; traction, stability, flotation, and comfort.
With all of our desires written on sticky notes (exhausting our supply of sticky notes), the Skookum was born. Designed around a 120mm travel fork and internally routed dropper post, it has an integrated down tube and chain stay protectors, a 197mm through axle, and clearance for narrow Q Factor cranks (for a fat bike). Now it’s just time to dream about the parts we going to use to build it up.
