Is Otso’s Voytek a plus MTB that can handle a 4.6″ fat tire? Or is it a fatbike that can roll on 27.5+ or 29+ wheels? The q-factor on the Voytek leads me to believe it’s a MTB frame with ample clearance for a 4.6″ fat tire. With the narrowest q-factor out of any other “fatbike” on the market because of its PF107BB spec, paired with a RaceFace Cinch crank and RF149 spindle, bringing the width to 183mm, the Voytek is designed to handle like a modern mountain bike. That’s because, with its unique Tuning Chip™ dropout system and 177×12 rear hub spacing, you can convert it to a hardtail with a dropper easily or run it as a fat bike. The options are endless.
Whether you’re a 26″ fat, 27.5″ plus or 29″ chunky rider, the Otso Cycles Voytek hardtail has the geometry for you. These wheel and tire options are made possible by the patent pending Tuning Chip™ system, designed by the team at Wolf Tooth Components, it allows you to modify the chainstay length. The Voytek’s chainstays are adjustable from between 430mm for responsiveness or 450mm for stability in loose ground. All built with many options, starting at $3,899 and in stock now at Otso Cycles.
If there is one company that has made our lives easier in terms of gearing options, it’s Wolf Tooth Components. Everything they’ve introduced to the market has been smart, innovative and has opened the door to new, affordable drivetrain systems. It should come as no surprise that the guys behind Wolf Tooth have a few opinions as to how bicycles should be designed, which was the motivation for launching Otso Cycles.
Their introductory framesets are the Voytek, a carbon hardtail and the Warakin, a stainless steel all-road. See more details below and be sure to check out Otso Cycles!
