Best known for their lineup of fat bikes, UK-based Smokestone Bikes has released their first gravel bike, and it appears to have a lot going for it. Mr Harry is Smokestone Bikes’ take on the adventure bike, and their first attempt at designing a bike that is more ride specific (outside of fat bikes, that is). Mr Harry is a drop bar gravel bike based around 29″ wheels, with clearance for up to 29 x 3.0″ tires. The frame features three bottle cage mounts, rear rack mounts, a large main triangle for running a frame bag, internal dropper post routing, boost rear axle spacing, and is suspension corrected for running 100mm front suspension like the Fox AX Fork or MRP Baxter. Scroll down for photos, frame specs, and geometry charts.
