Bird Forge – steel hardtail mountain bike.

Enduro // 29″ wheels // Hardtail // Steel

The Forge has been years in the making. Its roots can be traced to initial designs in 2013 and we’ve been beavering away on it ever since. The final bike is a trail-ready 29” wheeled beast, taking a 140-160mm fork and made from the perfect mix of 4130 steel and Reynolds 853 DZB.

A slack 64 degree head angle combined with short chainstays, sleek tubing and a slim tapered headtube means the Forge is aesthetically traditional with modern geometry and is ready to conquer the gnarliest trails you can find whilst looking beautiful.

  • 29 Inch Wheels
  • 140-160mm front travel

  • Investment cast chainstay yoke for maximum tyre clearance (2.6”)
  • ISCG05 mount
  • 2x Bottle cage mounts on the downtube
  • SRAM UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger)
  • External cable routing
  • Threaded bottom bracket

Tuscan Teal

A truly amazing colour that flips from teal to purple depending on the angle. Just like those old TVR’s.

Matt Stealth

The classic ‘goes with everything’ colour. Perfect for accessorising with anodized goodies.

We set out with one objective for the Forge; make this our most aggressive hardtail ever. The geometry is designed to rail and carve like no other hardtail, it just makes you want to ride aggressively. Combine this with the classic skinny-tubed aesthetic and I don’t see myself riding another hardtail again.
