UK’s Stooge Cycles just announced the Scrambler, a trail shredding, 27.5+ “RADventure” bike with a bi-plane fork and tons of mounts. Find all the details here…

Oswestry, UK-based Stooge Cycles is best known for its 29+ Speedball and MK4 frames, both of which feature designer Andy Stevenson’s signature twin top tubes and plenty of bikepacking-friendly mounts. We featured both of them in our Rigid Steel Index last year. Over the weekend, the company announced its next project, the Scrambler, a trail shredding 27.5+ “RADventure” bike.

Stooge Scrambler

First and foremost, the Scrambler is a rigid trail bike, but it also comes with all manner of gear mounts: rack and cage mounts on the biplane fork, three-pack mounts on the fork blades and both sides of the downtube, a pair on the seat tube, rear rack mounts, and half rack mounts for saddlebag supports. Stooge’s pet name for for the bike is the RADventure bike, “an adventure bike you can still get rad on, still take around the old BMX track, but still ride into the sunset on in all-day-comfort with Knocking On Heaven’s Door playing in the background.” Like Stooge’s other bikes, it still has twin top tubes but there’s room for a bigger frame bag. And, according to Andy, Wizard Works will be making a framebag for it.

The Stooge Scrambler will be offered in 18 and a 20″ sizes with effective top tube lengths of 610 and 635mm, respectively. Compared to the MK4, the Scrambler has a slacker 67° head tube angle and is a little shorter overall, which puts the rider in a more upright riding position. As Andy puts it, “Coupled with the short chainstays this will feel really poppy and light on its feet.”

He also added, “I see the Scrambler being built up with a superfat front tyre, a set of Junker bars and BMX stem, old canvas panniers hanging off the back full of clinking bottles and good times, and then being a dear friend when you’re all on your lonesome pedaling across some barren moorland with a head full of adventure. In short, I think it’s going to be the best RADventure bike in the world and I can’t wait to get my sweaty mitts on it.”

Although the final price of the Scrambler is yet to be finalized, you can reserve one now for £50 and Stooge is estimating the price to be £600 for the frameset, depending on the exchange rate. However, Stooge states that it won’t be more than £625. The Scrambler is set for delivery at the end of September. Find out more over at
