Longbikes Slipstream

Longbikes Slipstream

$2,795.00

Comfort: Standard "Hip Hinge" seat provides for independent adjustment of seat tilt and back recline.  Seat bottom rotates on the seat mount for tilt adjustment.  This allows you to set a posterior tilt to prevent you from sliding out without causing so much back recline that you strain your neck.  The four incremental adjustment positions allow a seat to back angle of 95-115 degrees in 5 degree increments to fine tune the back position as well.  A pair of adjustable struts provide support between the frame and the seat assembly.

Quality: No wimpy components. The dovetail seat rail and mating mount are examples of an attitude toward proper design.  No light duty parts which could slip and cause an accident. A lot more work on parts, like the nice little corner radii on our machined parts, but the Longbikes philosophy dictates that extra effort!

Flexibility of Design: Featuring the newly designed Bolt On Rear Triangle.  This design allows the owner to remove the rear triangle for travel or shipping.  It also gives Longbikes the ability to produce differently designed rear triangles in the future for different needs  (Different size wheels or suspension).  If you're worried that a Bolt On Rear Triangle might not be as sturdy, think about all the bikes out there with rear suspension.  Same principle.  This design works.  The bolt on drop-outs offer the advantage of interchangeable rear wheel sizes or perhaps Rohloff hubs.  You want to go faster, simply replace the standard 26" drop-outs with the 700c drop-outs shown in the options below and you have not changed the attitude of the bike, just the  performance!

No shortcuts: Slipstreams come standard with front and rear disc brakes.  To integrate them into the design, Longibkes ensured their rear triangle, front fork and dropouts are sized and built correctly.  No shortcuts with off the shelf products forced to fit could even be considered for this bike.  Disc brakes put a tremendous load into the fork blade, so the change to disc was not a simple bracket on a V-Brake fork, but a totally new fork with oversized blades.  You wouldn't want to attempt a panic stop without this fork.  Longbikes want their customers to be proud to confidently ride in style on their well engineered Slipstream!
