The Riff is our hardtail frame for 27.5″/650b wheels. It replaces the B-Side model. While the B-Side showed our tendency of keeping things old school, the Riff is modern without being trendy with the geometry and features. Tough Broski Sliding Dropouts allow you to go single-speed or geared or even run hub gears. Compatible with 12x142mm thru-axle hubs . A modified chainstay allows fitting even some double cranks with “plus size” 2.8″ wide tires without needing to invest in Boost parts. We even offer a belt-drive ready version.
