Why so Sirius? Pipedream announces the return of a classic

by 7

Made famous with the Moxie and currently trending with The Full Moxie, Pipedream Cycles has announced the return of the original Sirius hardtail.

Think Pipedream and a bright pink Moxie is likely the frame you conjure up, but before the Moxie there was the Sirius a steel-framed hardtail designed for multi-purpose trail duties, and for 2020 it’s making a comeback.

Pipedream says the Sirius is the hardtail for riders who don’t want to feel over biked on their trails, a frame for those who want a Moxie but realise that it’s probably too much for the majority of their riding. With this in mind, the new Sirius is designed with modern XC/trail forks in mind. Built as a 29er, the Sirius will happily accept 100-120mm forks, build it as a 27.5in wheeled trail bike and you can move up to 120-140mm travel. The updated frame is even mullet compatible and comes with sliding dropout for the single-speed crowd.

As we’ve come to expect from a bike with the Pipedream metal head badge the geometry is bang on the money, with a 77.5-degree seat tube angle for a comfortable climbing positing, short seat-tube lengths, a 65-degree head angle and reach figures ranging from 445- 485mm.

Trail riders with an appetite for bikepacking will be happy to learn that there will be a frame option with rack mounts available, and there is also a CrMo unicrown rigid fork option available too.

Pipedream is accepting pre-orders for the new Sirius over on their website now. The frame will be available in Silver Fox, Vintage Green and Starry Night finishes with frame only pricing at £649.00.

Here’s what Pipedream has to say about the all-new Sirius:
