Bearclaw Bicycle Co’s Thunderhawk All-Road Jun 5, 2018

What the Thunderhawk is proving is not necessarily a new concept; the idea that one frame can be mated with various wheel and tire combinations, depending on its intended use, but what it offers is a big bang for your buck ratio with a well-executed and planned titanium chassis.

The Thunderhawk is made from 3AL-2.5V double-butted titanium, with a 6AL-4V billet head tube, bb, dropouts, derailleur hanger, and chainstay yoke. It utilizes a 142x12mm thru-axle, fits up to a 700x46c (29×1.8) or 650x60c (27.5×2.4) tire, with 3 bottle cage mounts, rack and fender mounts, post mount 160mm brakes, with a hassle-free, full-external cable routing. With the plate yoke design, it will fit a maximum 53t 1x ring or a double with a 36/52t setup.

Call it a quiver killer, or whatever you’d like, the Thunderhawk checks a lot of boxes and comes complete with a Rival One kit for $3750 or a Force One kit for $5500.

    pressfit, <70mm drop bb

    sigh, so close

    • Chet Bearclaw

      We didn’t think pressfit would be the answer either, but Ti and pressfit got along quite nicely. Many moons have passed since they moved in together. Things are good. They are considering marriage.

        glad to hear its working out for those crazy kids

        why did they decide to move into a hghrise apt. though?

        • Johnny Burrell

          Likely trying to find a good balance of bb drop for either 700c and 650b. My bike was designed for up to 40mm 700c tires with 72mm of bb drop and it’s tempting to try & find some 650b wheels to see just how low that feels. Maybe for gravel more is better though? Not like I’m hopping rocks or anything…

          If by “hghrise apt.” you mean the 2nd floor of a 3 story “luxury” apartment, it’s quite simple. Since they weren’t sure if they would be utilizing the luxury rooftop patio or luxury ground level patio for bbq’s, they chose to settle right in the middle. It turns out they use the rooftop on sunny days and the ground level on windy or rainy days.
