THE N-2PL PINION-LATER bike builder


The N-2 takes design elements from the N-1 and pushes the great british weather concept further. A low chainstay and Salsa Alternator dropouts take the N-2 into areas of Singlespeed, Sturmey Archer, Alfine, Kindernay and Rohloff hubs before even thinking about derailleurs. The N-2 has also been designed around 2 tyre sizes. Both 29 x 2.4" and 27.5 x 3.0" (plus sized) tyres without affecting the handling. This design uses the benefits of carbon monocoque construction, sharing the same geometry as the N-1. There is also a Pinion option and the dropouts are split to accommodate Gates Carbon Drive belts.
