It's finally here! Possibly the best UK produced bike? We think so, also possibly the finest mid travel 29er full stop. We have ridden it, and our demo is in the shop so you can too. Hand crafted in Barnoldswick with full carbon front end and bonded aluminium rear end, full lifetime warranty and dream list of kit. Geometry is a big departure for Hope, this is a pretty long trail beast. A great point of reference would be a Transition Smuggler (also happens to be one of most popular bikes) with reach on a Large coming in 475/469 depending on how the flip chip is set. 130mm rear travel and 140/150mm up front, this is a really capable platform for UK riding, from trail centre blasts to enduro racing and big mountain adventures with everything in between.

This item is for our stock XT Trail 12Speed custom build, it's a mix of what has proved our most popular custom build parts and what we think builds the ultimate Trail HB130. Looking for something a bit heavier duty? See our XT 12 Build!

Up front there is a set of DVO Sapphire D1 140mm - light and offer unrivaled small bump response (not to mention the green adjusters being the perfect match for the Hope hardware!)

Working back from there we have a OneUp cockpit including their amazing vibration damping carbon bar. We also use their dropper posts, not only are they some the most reliable and easily serviced but the levers are great and the posts feature industry leading drop. We love a bit of Ergon and the grips and saddle are supplied by them, and the wheels are hand build by us with Stans ARCH rims offering 100g weight saving over the Chromag set.  The rest is full XT 12speed, from launch being run with a KMC chain and Sunrace cassette but moving to full XT once Hope/Shimano sort out the Microspline freehubs. Slimmed down the tyre set slightly to a 2.5 High Roller or DHF up front and a 2.3 High Roller rear. Want to go even lighter? A set of Nobby Nics would be great, just ask.
