'Ragley' titanium utilises some unusual features - for example, asymmetric chainstays

‘Shedfire’ announces first frame

Former On One mastermind, Brant Richards has leaked shots of the first product prototype to be developed under the tentative ‘Shedfire’ label.

The titanium ‘Ragley’ is a highly versatile hardtail, with a few unique ideas built in. Take for example the asymmetric chainstays, designed to give greater tyre clearance even with a larger tyre.

Then there’s the removable cable guides which thread into replaceable alloy rivnuts.

The frame is made by Lynskey in the USA from 3/2.5 grade titanium. Steel and aluminium frames of the same geometry will also be available.
