By using advanced molding technologies, bonded junctions are avoided and internal surfaces are kept smooth. Resulting in longer continuous carbon fibers and less unwanted material overlap. Creating a light, yet strong frame. The bottom bracket is a threaded BSA. Yes, it’s more expensive to make than press-fit bottom brackets and it may add a few grams. However, its durable and ease of maintenance make it worth it. At the rear the True Grit boasts a 142x12mm through axle and a flat-mount for disc-brakes. The headtube is tapered (1.125” to 1.5”). There are 3x bottle cage mounts, and a mount on the top tube for a bento box. Paired with a color matched Lauf Grit SL suspension fork. Grit SL has superb small bump performance and maintains traction and control like no other. Making the ride more comfortable, with zero maintenance.
