San Francisco’s Mission Bikes is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to launch the all-new Stinson, which they’re calling their most versatile bike to date. The Stinson is designed around a double-butted 4130 chromoly frame, and backed by a 50 year warranty. Although it is track-inspired, Mission Bikes claims it’s an “adventure bike that’s compact enough for city commuting, yet loose enough for longer rides and off-road adventures.” Check out the Kickstarter video below and scroll down to find more specs and photos…
Horizontal sliding dropouts paired with a rear stay coupling means the frame is compatible with virtually any drivetrain setup. More specifically, it’s compatible with single speed, 1×11, 2×10/11, internally geared hubs, and a belt drive. The Stinson can accommodate tires up to 700c x 42mm or 650b x 50mm with room for fenders. It appears to have two pairs of water bottle mounts in the triangle, and braze-ons for fenders and racks. The cherry on top? The Stinson is available in hundreds of custom colors.
Frames and complete builds are slated to ship this October. Just a $400 pledge will get you a custom painted frameset, and complete builds will cost you anywhere from $1,600 to $3,500. To learn more, or to become a backer, head over to the Kickstarter campaign.
