Jacinta, aka J, was on the hunt for a new bicycle. She had some money set aside and began looking at the options out there. There was always the option for custom, but J eventually grew a liking for Bearclaw Bicycle Co’s offerings. The Thunderhawk checked all the boxes but she wanted to make it her own. Enter the wizards at Black Magic Paint…

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.
