It’s been two years since I reviewed the original Hudski Doggler, which ended with me purchasing one for myself, and it remains one of my favourite bikes. For gravel, commuting, and general all-terrain rides, I appreciate its sport utility vibes, lightweight aluminum frame, and carbon fork. Having the ability to switch between 27.5 x 2.6″ and 29 x 2.1″ wheels/tires makes it one of the most versatile bikes I own.
Last year, Hudski tweaked the Doggler with a lower bottom bracket and they slackened the head tube angle to 67.5° on all sizes, a change of nearly 2°, which is significant. They’ve also added an equipment section on their website, where you can purchase their Longhorn handlebar and different wheelsets depending on what kind of terrain you’re after. You can also pick up some snazzy Road Runner bags and their large platform front rack, which they call Itzarack.
For 2023, Hudski has introduced two new color options for the Doggler: Metallic Salmon and Cherry Bronze. Frameset preorders (frame + fork) just opened, and they are expected to ship by mid-April. Each frameset includes a front thru-axle by Paragon Machine Works and a Wolf Tooth rear axle and seatpost collar. They are priced at $1,100 USD (plus tax + shipping), and you can reach out to Hudski directly to chat about complete build options.
