We’ve been eagerly following the development of the new Stayer Groadinger OMG for some time now, and we’re excited to share some major updates from the UK-based bike manufacturer. The new Groadinger OMG is Stayer’s first fully custom mountain bike, complete with individual sizing at no extra cost, made-to-order production, and delivered directly from Stayer.
Here’s how Stayer describes the OMG: “The idea is that anything you can think to do with 3″ tyre clearance and a no-suss frame can be done with the Groadinger OMG. If you want a big rig for long distance off road touring then we can do that with the OMG. If you want a hardtail with a short wheel base for chopping down the local trail then we can do that with the OMG. So it’s your mountain bike, what are you gonna do? It comes in mullet or 26’er or dropbar with fenders or trail rider, or long distance monster, steel fork feels or carbon for the win, whippy and bouncy, sturdy and looooong with racks, bags and buckets and places to keep your boat or board and so on, and so on.”

Raoul’s custom short wheel base Groadinger OMG
Words by Stayer Cycles
This is Raoul’s third bike from us. What a legend. And what a bike. Here are some slightly out of context on tarmac shots from a last-minute setup before it rolled its way to Raoul and the slopes and steeps of Stroud in the shire. This is the first iteration of our OMG swb frame with 3” yoke designed by Hulsroy Cycles and machined by Bear Frame Supplies. Tapered Paragon Machine Works head tube and stainless Syntace dropouts and super tough powder by Aurum Finishing with Spray Bike splatter intended to wear and be reapplied throughout the life of the bike to create an accreted and textured surface of 90s fluro fabulousness.
Some classy component choices and a set of super STAYER 29er rims on DT 350s with reflective decals make for a stylish and smart dropper ready ridgid build that we are chuffed to have been able to deliver to Raoul as the first of the commissioned STAYER OMGs in the wild. Drop us an email if you think you could do something with 3” clearance on your STAYER. Currently accepting interest in long and short wheel base versions in any set up with some standard geo suggestions to follow on the STAYER interwebs.
