If you fancy getting your hands on one of the Frank the Welder-built Sick Bicycle Co. Gnarpoons, then you need to get on the case with supporting their Crowdfund.
The Indiegogo campaign is live and if the project is successful, you can expect to see Gnarpoons out on the trails by March of next year.
With over 10% of the target goal of £30,000 reached and everything from £5 donations to £6890 Gnarpoon Enduro Pro complete bikes, there’s plenty of options to help back this project.
You can check out the Indiegogo page here.
The Sick Bicycle Gnarpoon is coming in either 150/160mm or 170/180mm builds, expected in March 2019. Frames start at £1895.00, with full builds starting at £3499.99.
What’s different with the Gnarpoon is that it will be available with either a chro-mo or alloy front end, mated to the same rear end. It’ll also take 29″ or 27.5+ wheels.
As with everything Sick Bicycle Co., you can expect the usual very progressive geometry, so think longer, lower, slacker and with a low centre of gravity. Specific details on the Gnarpoon’s geometry aren’t out, but the Gnarcissist hardtail was a geometry testbed for this full bouncer.
The Gnarpoon runs a ZS tapered headset, 31.6mm dropper post, 148mm hub, 73mm threaded BB and ISCG05 chainguide mount. Nothing weird or daft on this bike.
After many iterations of the Gnarpoon were taken out the back and shot, this is finally the bike that the Sick Bicycle guys are ready to put to market.
