Engine 11 Dirtee Gravel Bike high spec.
Built over the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 I’m now selling what is still my ‘dream’ gravel bike unfortunately due to lack of use. Its an amazing bike with a great spec and has been absolutely perfect, but it’s seen so few miles in the last couple of years I’ve decided to sell her on.
The frame is an Engine 11 Dirtee which I imported in may of 2020. It’s a med frame geometry, details can be found here: https://geometrygeeks.bike/bike/engine-11-dirtee-2019/
It’s a steel frame, so has some great compliance, a threaded BB, 27.2 seatpost size and tapered head tube. There are rack mounts for panniers or mudguards, but I’ve never used them and covered them with alloy bolts. The rear dropouts are 135mm quick release, and disc mounts are standard rather than flat mount, these are things I specifically looked for when buying the frame as it opened more options for MTB parts and a ‘classic’ spec.
The fork is carbon and has matching paint and decals to the frame there is a small paint chip to the rear of the fork, dropouts are 100mm quick release and disc mount is post mount.
Head set is Hope in black.
Stem is whisky parts co, I think it’s a 90mm.
Bars were originally whiskey parts co no9’s but I’ve replaced these with some alloy zipp service course xplr gravel bars after the recent recall on the whiskey parts bars. Bars are 44cm.
Bar tape is ESI silicon which is incredibly comfortable, reusable and washable.
Seatpost is a crank brothers xcg 60 dropper post with matching crank brothers lever at the bar. The frame doesn’t come with internal dropper post routing but I’ve modded the rear mudguard bolt hole to let the gear cable through just behind and above the BB. Cable routing is down the down tube. I’ll also include a traditional whiskey parts co no9 carbon seatpost.
Saddle is a brooks c13 carbon cambium 145mm, I have one these on my xc bike and it’s perfect for me for long days in the saddle off road.
Wheels are custom built by my local bike shop Slam69, 24h Tune king/Kong hubs 135/100 with tune quick releases. I’ve upgraded the rear hubs free wheel to tunes gold heavy duty freehub body, and will supply the original blue version as a spare with the bike. The hubs are built onto Nextie wave rims with bladed spokes. Tyres are gravel king sk’s in 38mm. These are some super light wheels and super aero too.
The drivetrain is where things get special and is extremely rare in the UK.
The cranks are raceface next carbon – the same as Easton carbon cranks, with an absolute black oval chainring, I can’t remember the size off the top of my head but I think it’s a 38?
The cassette is a 12sp 11-44 INGRID, Italian made, super rare and great performance and super lightweight.
The rear mech is the even more rare INGRID long cage MTB 12sp (SRAM), these are hand made in Italy. performance is spot on and the craftsmanship is amazing. The whole mech is repairable if anything brakes and parts are available from Ingrid. Currently waiting on a replacement jockey wheel as I managed to completely cross the cassette and miss shift.
Invoices for the mech and cassette (and anything else, can be provided with the bike).
Chain is a SRAM xx1 eagle 12 sp.
All drivetrain has had less than 100miles (hence the sale).
Shifting is electronic/cable via Xshifter, this is housed in the 77desingnz bag on the downtube and is programmable via the app to any shifting configuration. The shifter is mounted to the inside of the RHS hood. And shifting is cable actuated from the control box in the small bag. A spare battery will also be provided with the bike.
Brakes are TRP hylex, which are super comfortable for hydraulic disc brakes as there is no shifting mechanism inside the levers, this makes them my go to drop bar brakes – you get all the power and all the comfort.
Pedals are Shimano grx.

Hi, if you ever decide to split, I’d be up for the ingrid mech , I missed out on the rasta:(
Ok. Not sure if I’ll split at this time, would rather sell complete or keep it. However I managed to completely cross cassette/ miss-shift and break two teeth on one of the jockey wheels yesterday! first ride on it since last summer. Just about to pull the ad while I wait for a replacement from Ingrid….
