    Handlebar

    • Sonder Aspect Riser 780mm

    • Sonder Aspect Riser [OEM]

      In general riser bars tend to be wider than flat bars and may have slightly more flex to give a more forgiving ride. As you go into descents and your arms drop below your knees the additional height gained on your front end will help you take control of the steep descents.

      That said you can get all bar types in a range of widths and stiffnesses and front end height can be adjusted with spacers like our Sonder Rings, so sometimes you just have to ignore the mumbojumbo and make your call on style and personal preference and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Saddle

    • Love Mud Abode / 138

    • Love Mud Abode [OEM]

      High density foam padding over a plastic base provides comfort and longevity. A v-shaped split at the rear of the saddle allows flex as you are riding, increasing shock absorbancy and reducing pressure on the spot between your sit bones.

      Scooped up at the back with a slight rise towards the nose the longitudinal profile provides a cupped, craddled seating position, a timeless, proven design for distance on and off the road or climbing in the mountains.

      Stainless steel rails give 50 mm of forward and back adjustment to help you find your sweet spot.

      All our Sonder bikes come with Abode fitted as standard.

    Seatpost

    • Sonder Seatpost 31.6mm / 400mm

    • Sonder Seatpost [OEM]

      A seat post that is reliable and offers adjustability to help you find your ultimate riding position.

      Membar is all about adjustability. With a twist of your allen key the micro adjustment rail clamp allows the saddle angle to be fine tuned to your ideal position.

      Your saddle can be fitted with minimal faff thanks to a quick release action that allows the upper rail clamp to be released without removing the retaining bolt. The lower rail clamp is secured to the seat post which means that it will not fall in the mud when you are trying to fit your saddle.

Every Broken Road Pinion is built to order. This means the geometry, the tube lengths, the specification, everything is chosen exactly for you and the journeys you'll take.

It takes six months from the first conversations we have with you to getting your Broken Road Pinion for your first ride. In this time we'll talk exactly about what you need and where you're going so that we can design and build your perfect bike. It's actually a joyful six months, filled with the involvement of having a bike built especially for you, knowing the care and complete obsession over the detail that's going into it. Neil and our team of designers and builders are in touch every step of the way. It's a truly special experience.

The slackened angle gives the perfect balance of comfortable uphill grinding and exciting downhill whooping. Longer wheelbase wonderfully balances precision and handling.

Wide, ovalised top tube gives vertical compliance but lateral stiffness -this also makes it easier to keep your luggage in place when riding over rough ground.

Broken Road’s titanium frame is designed for optimum use with 650b/650b+ wheels but can be swapped out for 29ers to help you tackle any journey that you thrust upon it. The bigger, fatter wheels go over obstacles better, hold momentum and give enhanced control due to the angling.

Why Pinion?

The pinion version of the Broken Road puts all the moving parts of the gear system out of harm’s way and gives an almost silent, well-balanced ride.

It’s a low maintenance dream - you can cover 10,000km before you need to think about an oil change. The range of gears is just enormous (600%) and because of the way the gearbox works you can dump all of them in one go if you get caught out at the bottom of a brutal climb. It’s an amazing experience.

All the weight of the gears are low and central with a pinion gearbox so handling of the Broken Road Pinion is beautifully balanced and assured.

Features

Elegant titanium tubing

Climb aboard and experience the famed resilience of titanium. No other material is as durable, lasts as long, or looks as good, and Broken Road’s aeronautical grade titanium tubing isolates the rider from shock, gives an efficient ride, and maximizes storage potential. Thanks to the low standover height and rider clearance, you won’t have to make any compromises when riding over rough terrain either.

650b+ ready

Designed for optimum use with 650b+ (semi-fat) wheels which help you to tackle any adventure. The plus-sized wheels cruise over obstacles, hold momentum, and give enhanced control thanks to a larger contact patch.

Trail bike geometry

The long wheelbase combines precision and control, giving you the flexibility to adjust riding position easily. The frame is designed with a relaxed head angle, creating the perfect set up for eating up the miles over any surface, and striking the balance between comfortable uphill grinding and hair-raising downhill whooping.

Adjustable sliding dropouts

Adjustable sliding dropouts let you lengthen your Broken Road for eating up the miles or shorten it for the technical, steep trails, and allow for either 650b+ or 29” wheels, and either singlespeed, derailleur, or internal hub gears.

Rear rack mount lugs

Rack mounts allow you to load up with panniers.

Geometry and Sizing

Sizing

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the top tube to your crotch this will give you enough seat post adjustment to find your optimum saddle height. Generally we recommend:
Small
Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in
Medium
Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
Large
Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
