Just a perfectly designed, simple, steel frame Mountain bike, the perfect bike packing bike, but without sacrificing fun on the trail. We have ridden this bike down Black alpine Downhill runs, bikepacked in the New Forest, and used everyday as a comfortable offload cruiser. The Big Bro is a classic, and the 2019 bike is dialled, with Sram level Hydro brakes, thru axles front and rear and bosses everywhere for all you bike packing needs. 29er wheels make it more versatile for everyday use, but if you want more cushion, pop in some 275x 3 inch and take on the really rough stuff!
Our all purpose, tough as nails, 29er adventure bike – built to take you well off the beaten track and beyond. Whether you’re running a lightweight bikepacking setup, front and rear panniers for a ’round-the-world’ tour or stripped back to thrash some forest trails the Big Bro can handle it.
The frame is made out of tough 4130 double butted cr-mo tubing with a 100mm suspension corrected fork, both with corrosion resistant ED coating applied. It comes equipped with the latest Sram NX Eagle 1×12 groupset – providing reliable shifting in the toughest of conditions. WTB Ranger 2.25″ tyres on WTB ST i25 29″ rims are a trail ready “bikepacker approved” wheelset that excels on longer rides. Last but not least the SRAM Level T hydro disc brakes give you confidence-boosting stopping power all day long.
Like all Brother products the Big Bro has been rigorously tested. We’ve taken prototypes to Snowdonia National Park, up to the Scottish Highlands, bikepacking through the Bavarian Alps and the entire 2,700 mile length of the Tour Divide route.
