SAM'S BOMBTRACK 'BEYOND PLUS' CUSTOM MTB
Sam raced last year's Gravity Enduro series on a Kona Explosif hardtail, and while it cemented a love for steel hardtails that had been a long time in the wings, there were a few things about the bike that he wanted to change. When Bombtrack added the Beyond Plus to their 2017 lineup, he just had to have one!
From a simple frameset this no-holds-barred rig was born, featuring a 12-speed Sram Eagle group, KS dropper and stem, RS Pike fork, Burgtec carbon bars and a beautiful set of Stans Flow MkIII rims to White Industries CLD hubs. Onza's Canis tyres blow out well past the 2.85" on the side when mounted on these wide rims, and he reckons it's the best bike he's ever ridden. Well, best mountain bike.
This Beyond will be pulling double duty over the next few months as Sam's go-to bikepacking rig, so keep an eye out for some photos of it in hauling mode!
