UK-based Brother Cycles introduced the Mehteh frameset to their lineup in 2019, positioned as a “fast and agile” gravel bike designed for tough terrain and built around a Reynolds 725 steel frame. The Mehteh has three sets of bottle mounts on all sizes, as well as rear rack and fender mounts. For 2021, the Mehteh is now paired with their updated Carbon Gravel Fork, which features a full-carbon construction, fender mounts, and triple cage mounts on each blade. The frame and fork have clearance for up to 27.5 x 2.1″ or 700c x 45mm tires. There’s also an option to purchase the frame with their Steel Gravel Fork upon request.
Besides the new “Ochre” paint job, updated fork, and a new CNC machined seatpost collar, the Mehteh remains unchanged for 2021. It’s still based around 12x142mm / 12x100mm thru-axles, has stealth dropper post routing, and a 68mm threaded bottom bracket. The frame is designed to accommodate triple, double, and 1x drivetrains, and can accommodate a chainring up to 48T on the latter. A medium Mehteh frame weighs 4.8 pounds (2.2kg) and the fork weighs 1.2 pounds (0.55kg).
The 2021 Brother Cycles Mehteh costs £849.00 including VAT or £707.50 for customers outside of the UK. Pre-orders go live this Wednesday at 12:01 AM GMT, and are expected to sell out quickly. Find all the details at BrotherCycles.com.
