Though the Troll’s geometry is that of a 26"-wheeled mountain bike, it’s unlike most mountain bikes you’ll find in other shops. Although it's probably as close to a 'mountain bike' as we have here it has ample clearance for 28/38/50t mountain-triple chainrings and room for 26 x 3.0" tires, or 650b x 2.4". The gusseted front triangle, with its sloping toptube, provides generous standover clearance even when running high-volume rubber. The frame is no longer suspension corrected, more space in the main triangle for a frame bag and a shorter fork with less flex.
The Troll is really a do-it-all monster of a bike. Options are almost limitless as it features Gnot-Boost dropouts with a derailleur hanger, disc caliper mounting slots, plus rack and fender bosses. Fit anything from a 135mm x 10 standard hub, 142 x 12 or 148 x 12 Boost. There’s a dedicated area for anchoring a Rohloff hub OEM2 axle plate, and we’ve included threaded M10 x 1mm holes for installing Surly trailer-mounting nuts or B.O.B. Nutz. The dropout design allows the simultaneous use of a rack, mudguard and disc brake. We include canti pivots, too. Options, options, options.
Looking like towards the end of the year before we see any of these, put down a deposit to secure yours!
World Troller in Albino Chocolat is available to order.
The World Troller can do everything the standard Troll frame can, plus it'll bust in half via two S&S Machine frame couplers making travel and storage easier in some circumstances.
