BTR back from hiatus with new look frames

They’ve been quiet for a while but, as with their lovingly handcrafted mountain bike frames, BTR Fabrications have taken their time to get things right. Today their fresh website and new bikes are released to the world.

With new-look gussets, huge rider input and BTR’s typical attention to detail, the line-up of frames – now available through the company’s web store – is stronger than ever. Figuratively and literally, of course.

“Now that we’ve reached the ripe old age of three-and-a-half, we figured it must be time to don our big-boy pants and face the world square on. We’ve gone full overhaul: namely a redesign of our entire range of bikes, but our website has had a good lick of paint too. It’s taken us a long time, but we’re only human so we hope you’ll understand. We’re incredibly proud of the changes we’ve made – they’ve taken great deliberation, decision and toil – and we hope you’ll love them too.” – Tam and Burf .

The Chaser. Simple, masochistic, rewarding. This horizontal dropout 29er is built purely with riding a ridiculously long way in one gear in mind.


The Chaser XC. A geared version of the Chaser, featuring BTR’s new 142 x 12 dropouts. The Chaser but for those who like a little less burn.


The Blinder. The dirt jump weapon. Built purely for trail use and abuse, featuring horizontal dropouts and an integrated seat clamp as standard.


The Ripper AM. A more versatile descendant of the original Ripper (which lives on as the Ripper DH). The new Ripper AM is an all-mountain or enduro frame for riders aged around 8 – 12 years, and features 24″ wheels and dropper post cable routing.
