We've been offering this bike as an option for 10 years; but you had to ask nicely to get one. And it didn't have a name. And it wasn't on our website. But now the Dirtbomb is officially on the scene. Sometimes it's easier to describe this bike by what it's not. It's not a 29r with a big ole' fork and room for big tires, and it's not a skinny cross bike designed to be set up like a road bike. It's just sweet. Built around the Panaracer Fire Cross 700c x 45c tires, this machine begs to be taken everywhere. It's the bike we take when we have no idea where we're going. The 45c tires offer more cush for off-road jaunts than a 35c, while not weighing you down on the road like a mountain tire. The geometry falls somewhere in the neighborhood of the Groundskeeper, slightly Northwest of the Option 3, a little South of the Holy Roller, and dead center of "just right". When people see the Dirt Bomb, the usual response is, "Oooooh. That's what I need!" Available as frame and fork, "chassis", or complete bike. Also available in a single speed or fixie version.
