Although RideFarr is better known for its interesting drop bars and aero extensions, we’ve been anticipating new bikes from the Perth, West Australian-based company for a while. With affordable price tags and loads of bikepacking-friendly features, the new ATB (All Terrain Bike) and GMX (Gravel Monster Cross) certainly look promising. For now, both the ATB and GMX are only available as frame kits, and being their first run of bikes, it doesn’t come as a surprise. Find details on both bikes below.
RideFarr ATB: All Terrain Bike
The RideFarr ATB is RideFarr’s take on a modern off-road bike. The ATB is designed around a custom Chromoly steel frame, sliding dropouts for different drivetrains, and geometry that RideFarr says is equally suitable for an evening mountain bike ride or multi-day bikepacking trip. It’s meant to be built up around a 120 or 130mm travel fork, 29 x 2.35″ tires, and has routing for a dropper post. The frame appears to have mounts under the downtube, multiple bottle mounts in the main triangle, and additional bosses on the top tube.
The Frame kit includes a FSA Orbit ITA Headset, SRAM Maxle, alloy top cap seat clamp, and frame hardware. It uses a 73mm threaded bottom bracket, 148mm Boost hub spacing, and comes in four different sizes: small, medium, large, x-large. The RideFarr ATB frame kit is $495 USD (not including shipping) and available now at RideFarr.com. See additional photos and the geometry chart below.
RideFarr GMX: Gravel Monster Cross
The RideFarr GMX is big-tired gravel bike, featuring a custom Alloy-6061 frame, clearance for 29 x 2.25″ tires, and a Chromoly steel fork with plenty of mounts. RideFarr says the GMX’s geometry was “purposely designed for use on gravel roads and smoother trails than what a modern MTB would be used for.” The included steel fork uses a 483mm axle-to-crown, which makes it perfect for 100mm travel suspension forks as well, or a carbon replacement fork.
Like the ATB, the GMX uses front and rear 110/148mm Boost hub spacing, thru-axles, and are only sold as a frame kit. The frame and fork kit, including axles, headset, and seat clamp is priced at $695 USD and available from RideFarr.com. See additional photos and the geometry chart below.
