Fade Frame & Manitou Circus

Check Availability
The Fade frame bundled with a Manitou Circus Expert fork.

The idea behind the Fade is for it to be a proper dirt jump bike. A bike that inspires you to push harder at the pump track, begs you to throw shapes at the skatepark and loves getting sideways at the trails. It's agile and easy to get on the back wheel without being twitchy. Geometry is tight & snappy but still long enough that you're comfortable coming off your 'big bike'.

With frames and forks being hard to get at the moment, we've put together a bundle enabling you to build a new bike around the Fade frame and Manitou Circus Expert fork. The Circus is a 100mm travel dirt-jump specific fork with a tapered steerer and a 20mm through-axle. Dropouts are 110mm. 

For this bundle the frame is raw with black decals, matched up to the black fork. The fork decals are silver chrome, but there are stealth black alternatives included in the box.

Please Note: The forks are genuine aftermarket items in retail packaging. The steerer tube will not be cut. Headsets are not included but can be purchased separately and we'll be happy to press the cups into the frame for you.

The Fade frame is available in one size only. It's designed as a compact dirt jump & pump-track bike but reach is a little bit longer than most, so it's perfect if you're a mountain biker accustomed to modern, long enduro bikes.
