The ultra-rare Titanium Pipedream Moxie hardtail looks set to make a return with updated geometry.
If there is one thing that all mountain bikers can agree on it’s the fact that a Titanium hardtail is still considered super desirable. Even in a world of fantastic plastic full-suspension bikes, techy eBikes and boutique steel frames, there’s still a place in most riders hearts for a well-sorted Titanium hardtail.
Pipedream has been here before with the Titanium Moxie hardtail, a frame that proved to be so popular it sold out in next to no time and even now remains a rare, but exciting, sight on the trails.
Earlier today, Pipedream Cycles posted the above teaser image on its social media, hinting that fans of Titanium may soon be able to get their hands on a Ti Moxie with updated geo.
The photo shows the distinctively neat welds of a Ti frame with the telltale ‘325’ marking of 3Al/2.5V Titanium Tubing. The post doesn’t reveal much, but a glance at the Pipedream Cycles website does reveal that the geometry of the Ti Moxie has been updated to match up with the MK3 steel Moxie which is currently on pre-order.
Like its steel sibling, the Titanium Moxie will be available in 2 frame sizes, long and longer, with reach figures starting at 470mm and maxing out at 510mm. Those lengthy front ends are matched to a steep 77.5-degree seat post and slack 64-degree head angle. Those numbers might look like they sit at the extreme end of radical but actually equate to an effective top tube length of 612-652mm.
Both frame sizes are built with the same length, 420mm seat tube, so there is plenty of room for a modern long travel dropper post no matter which size you were to choose.
There are currently no pricing details, and we don’t know when the frames will be dropping, but the text in the teaser suggests that Ti Moxies will be on sale fairly soon. Hopefully, we’ll get more details soon.
