The all new Timberjack frame is your ticket to hardtail heaven. Timberjack's updated geometry is longer, lower, and slacker for a welcome dose of confidence when things get hairy out there, but maintains efficient pedaling and climbing performance. The Timberjack frame is suitable for parts bins projects but worthy of the dream build that occupies your imagination it's compatible with 27.5+ or 29" wheels, and our adjustable Alternator 2.0 dropouts allow for multiple drivetrain options. We've also equipped it with all the mounts we'd want for long days on the trail or extended bikepacking trips, so you can depend less on that sweaty backpack. The all new Timberjack frame lets you cook up a trail hardtail that's everything you want it to be.


  • 6061-T6 Aluminum Tubing

    Timberjack is built from our proprietary, top-shelf 6061-T6 aluminum tubing, which is double- and triple-butted in the main triangle for a light, responsive, and durable frame with great trail feel.

  • Timberjack Geometry

    Our second-generation Timberjack geometry is longer, lower, and slacker for aggressive riding. A 66-degree head tube and long wheelbase make for a stable ride, while a long reach and steep (75-degree) seat tube balance weight distribution for efficient pedaling. Short chainstays (adjustable from 420-437 mm) keep the rear end nimble for responsive handling.

  • Alternator 2.0 Dropouts

    Our adjustable Alternator dropout system lets you run Timberjack geared or single-speed and accommodates multiple hub standards. Built-in adjustability gives you 17 mm of wheelbase travel so you can dial in your preferred ride characteristics.

  • Bottle & Accessory Mounts

    SM-XL frames have two bottle mounts-including a Three-Pack mount on the downtube-in the main triangle (XS frames have only the Three-Pack mount on the downtube). All sizes feature an accessory mount on the underside of the down tube, plus top tube mounts for our EXP Series Direct Mount Top Tube Bag means room for more ride essentials. Rear rack mounts open up possibilities for larger loads.

  • Full-Length Internal Routing

    Full-length internal routing for brake lines and shift cable housing means more reliable performance in sloppy conditions, simplified maintenance, and a better fit for frame bags.

  • Wheel and Tire Options

    Timberjack is compatible with both 27.5 x 2.8" and 29 x 2.1-2.6" wheel and tire combinations.
