Endpoint Hunter Gatherer in Stock $1,500

The Hunter Gatherer is designed with more utility and long-range, technical mixed surface, loaded riding in mind. The Hunter Gatherer is a Columbus tubed steel frame designed for efficiency and comfort over the long haul with a geometry that puts the rider in a more relaxed position that translates to comfort and control while cruising through multi-day adventures over more aggressive terrain.

Tire Clearance & Wheel Standard
Shorter 435 chainstays maintain responsiveness while still providing improved clearance for 27.5×2.4 tires. The frame utilizes 12×142 thru-axle dropouts for the rear wheel and a 12×100 thru-axle dropout with our Search Light fork. The low trail fork is perfect for loaded riding without compromising control or confidence in handling.

Cargo & Fenders
The Hunter Gatherer has rear triangle and fork mounts for fenders and racks and is equipped with three bottle cages, mounted low to free up enough space for a frame bag.

The Hunter Gatherer is designed by Ride Endpoint and hand-built in Colbert, WA by Glen Copus at Elephant Bikes.
