A Clean and Sleek Nod to Moto
This bike is a nod to Tony and Ira’s interest in vintage motorcycles and moto style. The new downtube graphics were something we riffed on from old Ducati motorcycles, with graphic work created by our friend Mary Lytle.
This bike looks oh-so-good with a coat of gloss black and gloss gold to pop against the new Chris King Matte Black and Matte Gold colors.
We added our optional internal routing for the 175mm Reverb dropper post and rear brake line for a pristine, clean design.
The Modern Tweaks
Stretched-Out Slack to Do It All
We like to earn our turns in the woods, so we wanted to add some modernized tweaks to help the Bad Otis do it all.
More slack in the head tube (now 65 degrees) and a steeper seat tube (now 76 degrees) means the Bad Otis is better for ripping down steeper trails, but gets your weight in the right spot for climbing up. We love the Fox 38 fork with 160mm of travel to tackle the steeps and rocks.
As custom bike builders we can always tweak this layout just for you; these are just starting points toward creating your ultimate dream bike.
Tight, Nimble and Fun
This bike has plenty of front end stability with an agile back end.
The short 415mm chainstays keep things tight, nimble and make it fun to rip around and quickly switch direction on technical trails.
