First look: Stolen Bikes Max 29″

29 11 2018

Perhaps this is the first “clear” look at Stolen Bikes‘ new 29″…since we first saw a cloudy pic of a teaser a few weeks ago (A new Stolen 29 sounds fine).

With that being said, we finally  have some more details — and a sharper picture — of what the new addition to the Stolen Bikes lineup will look like.

Dubbed the Max 29″, Stolen says they have taken what they have learned from building their bigger bikes (22, 24 and 26 inch) to make a 29er of equal caliber.

The Max 29″ is full cro-mo, with fully sealed components (with the exception of the pedals) and is built for abuse with double-wall wheels and a 14mm rear axle. Stolen’s parts brand, Fiction ,also covers the tire department with some sporty 29 X 2.50″ rubber.

Specs/Geo-wise, you’re looking at the following:

  • Top Tube Length: 23.25″
  • Chain Stay Length: 18″
  • Head Tube Angle: 71°
  • Seat Tube Angle: 72°
  • Seat Tube Height: 16.15″
  • Bottom Bracket Height: 12″

Color choices are: Black with Chrome Plated bits (pictured above) or Raw with Caribbean Green (not pictured…but I am intrigued by the “Caribbean Green…if only because it reminds me of a Billy Ocean song).

All in all, pretty deece.

No word yet on availability, so hit up Stolen Bikes if this new 29″ piques your interest.

Stolen Saint: a great new 24″ option

10 02 2012

This bike first caught my attention when I was cruising the booths at Interbike back in September.

I was immediately impressed by Stolen’s first foray into the 24″ world.  It looked like they did their homework: tall-ish bars, double-wall rims, raised BB…all at great price (under $500, I believe).

Check out this video of Rick at Pat’s 605 Cyclery in Norwalk, CA  giving the bike the once over (seriously, why don’t more bike shops do videos like this?).

If you’re looking to get a 24″ complete, the Stolen Saint is a great new option.
