Internet Rummagings | Spring has Sprung edition

by 2

Do let’s, dear reader, focus on the evenings getting longer, the weather getting warmer and the trails getting drier rather than the current cold snap and potential for snow, for spring is springing! Here’s what I’ve found in that back room of the internet bike shop this month!  Terra Bikes Terra Bikes is a small outfit from Arezzo in Northern Italy, currently making a very nice looking steel trail 29er hardtail, the Codadura trail. Its geometry is modern, if not suuuper progressive, (64.5° head angle, 75° seat angle, 425-475mm reach, 60mm BB drop and short 428mm chainstays) and can be built with a 140-170mm fork, if you were so inclined. One feature that did interest me though, is the finish, which is just clearcoated steel, meaning it will rust and become patina’d over time. Terra says this will not compromise the warranty, but if you like your frames to look shiny and new for years after buying this is NOT the frame for you…    If however you like your bikes to show you the abuse they’ve taken, prices are around £700. If you like the look but the Geo isn’t quite enduro enough for you, there’s an enduro version, which has a 63° head angle, 78° seat angle, and 480-510mm reach, and is available for preorder shortly. If neither of those tickle your fancy, there is the ‘Serie Speciale’ Program, essentially a custom geometry service with seemingly no limit to what they can make, from gravel  bikes to this...

    That clear coat steel looks awesome. Almost encourages you not to wash it!

    Gorgeous hard tails. I love the clear coat.

    The enduro offering sounds lush.

    I was ‘this’ close to getting a Shand a few years ago, but they refused to offer raw/clear coat finish. Harumph.
