Taking its name from the legendary Pamir Highway, the new Stanforth Pamira is an expedition-ready bike built to take on loaded tours and bikepacking trips well off the beaten path. See complete details and photos here…

Posted by Lucas Winzenburg

Inspired by the Pamir Highway – traversing Central Asia’s Pamir Mountains – the new Pamira from UK-based Stanforth Bikes is built for loaded riding off the beaten path. And like all of Stanforth’s bikes, the Pamira is handmade to order in the UK and can be tailored to your measurements at no extra cost.

The frame features bosses for front and rear racks, four bottle cage mounts, fender mounts, as well as three-pack bosses on the fork. It has routing for both Rohloff and derailleur gearing with dropout inserts for easily switching between the two. The Pamira is built from a mix of heat treated Reynolds 853 and 725 steel in the main triangle and air hardened 631 in the rear triangle. It’ll clear up to a 27.5” x 2.4” or 700c x 2.2″ tire.
