Pipedream unveil Skookum 29er - in steel and titanium

Pipedream Cycles have unveiled the Skookum 29er – a big-wheeled version of the Sirius which will be available in both steel and titanium incarnations.

The steel Skookum 29er is available in blue, metallic or green colour schemes

The Skookum shares a number of the features found on its sibling, including a tapered headtube and sliding dropouts, which can accommodate a singlespeed or derailleur setup, and which allow riders to tune the wheelbase length. The drive-side dropout also has a coupling for a belt-drive system.

Pipedream expect most riders to run a 80-100mm fork, but the frame can support a fork up to 120mm. A 30.9mm seatpost diameter means the frame can be used with a dropper post, while cables are routed underneath the bottom bracket.

The gusset-free steel frame, which is made from Reynolds 853 DZB tubing, will cost £395, while the titanium version will set you back £989. Both are available in 16in, 18in and 20in sizes.
