Ty’s Stinner Ride the Divide Rohloff 29’r

Ride the Divide is one of the most difficult MTB endurance races in the continental US, so when Ty from Golden Saddle Cyclery decided that he was going to participate, he looked to Santa Barbara’s Stinner Frameworks to design a no nonsense 29’r. Utilizing a Rohloff Speedhub 14-speed internal belt drive, this bike will require zero maintenance for the extent of the ride. Tubeless wheels, XTR hydraulic disc brakes, SON hub, E3 lamp and Thomson Ti bars add just amount of show-worthiness to the bike. We rode our new mountain bikes yesterday and I am beyond pumped for Ty. This is one sick ride!

  • Rohloff? Belt drive??? Army Green???! CROWN LIGHT MOUNT?? Come on, man. Way to make everyone else’s bike look like a trainwreck.

    Good luck to Ty. I think he’s gonna need some more bottle cages though…

    • He has two more mounts on the fork. But it was excessive for our ride yesterday.

  • Holy moly that’s a nice bicycle. Couldn’t have chosen a more suitable handlebar either.

  • Kozo Nozawa

    Beautiful ride, thanks for sharing! Zero maintenance on the Tour Divide though?! That will be impressive!

    • The reason Ty went with this setup is because other racers in the past did the same and had no issues.

  • Why no suspension? 

    • Suspension-corrected fork so he can always throw one on…

  • still bringing a multi-tool just in case, right?

  • can’t wait to see this in person!! so rad!!

  • So good!

  • SO slick.

  • Is that a CHUB Hub? :)

    Hidden rack mounts, or is he going with just a frame bag and back pack?  Good luck Ty, that looks like a rough ride!

    I’m curious to see what kind of front bag setup he plans to use that won’t conflict with that light location.

    • A pack bag that goes on your handlebar.

        Awesome, I have a Revelate Designs roll style front bag, but imagining it on that bike seemed like it would hit the light.

        • As long as the front of the light is clear, it’s fine.
