This Schlick Cycles Tashunka frame and fork were hand-built in the US by Tom Teesdale from a selection of True Temper Tubes and custom bent 4130 steel.
The Tashunka was designed specifically for 29-plus tires and addresses some of the deficiencies inherent in a traditional 135/100 hubset when used with the big hoops that 29’ers ride on. To address the wheel strength issue, the Tashunka uses a 135mm front hub on the stock fork and a 170mm rear hub. Both of these wider hubs contribute to better triangulation for the wheel build and make for a stronger, less flimsy wheelset. Additionally, the Tashunka uses a 100mm bottom bracket.
• The curved seat tube and short 17.5-inch seatstays tuck the rear wheel under the rider for really suckable handling.
• Optimized geometry for 47-50mm rims and 29 x 2.8 to 3.0 tires.
