Paying tribute to the early days of mountain biking, the new SimWorks Doppo High Plains Drifter is quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. It takes design cues from klunker-style mountain bikes and pairs them with a modern, Portland-made steel frame that’s clearly suitable for much more than bombing fire roads. It’s based around a TIG-welded and brazed Chromoly steel frame, Paragon Rocker dropouts, a unicrown Chromoly steel fork, thru-axles, and dropper post routing.
The Doppo High Plains Drifter has clearance for 29 x 2.3″ or 27.5 x 2.6″ tires, rack and fender mounts, external cable routing, and an interesting bolt-on truss assembly for the front fork. To fill up that unique twin top tube design, SimWorks has teamed up with Jack Supply to offer an optional custom frame bag. And to really complete the look, the frameset is available with a klunker-style riser bar from Doom Bars as an add-on.
