Why you'll love it
The perfect gateway to trail riding, our mountain bike frame is ideal for new riders who want a mountain bike with knobby tyres that can also double as a rugged commuter. We originally designed and created the frame to support the Lea Valley Velopark, and is used on bikes that are available to Velopark visitors, home of the 2012 Olympic village, to ride around and explore the gentle trails and tarmac road courses. The frame is made by hand from Columbus 7005 aluminium, and will build into a machine for young riders, trail riders, and commuters alike.
Please note junior frameset will fit a 24" wheel only.
Bottom bracket: BSA
Seat tube (internal): 27.2mm
Seat tube (external): 31.8mm
Front derailleur attachment: band-on
Quick release axles (not included)
Disc brake mounts: post mount
The charts shows our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. Please contact us if you need advise and support before purchasing.
If you would like to visit us in the store, here is how the process works.
1. Choose your model
We make a wide range to suit all styles and disciplines. Our full range is available to view online and in-store, but don't worry if you're not sure what's right for you — we're here to help!
2. Have a fitting
We'll ensure that you'll ride in complete comfort and get the best performance from your bike. If you can't visit us in store, we can help with the fit by phone or email.
3. Make it your own
We'll work with you to choose components that suit your requirements, right down to details such as handlebar tape colour. We are here to advise on everything.
4. We build it
We'll assemble your bike in London. Once built, we'll arrange a time and date with you for the handover, where we'll run through everything and help with anything else you may need.

Wheel size & tyre clearance
The frame is made for any adventure and is compatible with 24" wheels for the smaller junior frame size and 26" wheels for frame sizes from X-Small and upwards. The maximum tyre clearance is 2.1", enabling you to fit a knobbly mud-beater or a smoother, firetrap-focused tyre.
Handmade in Italy
The frames are built by hand from lightweight aluminium. On rough and beaten surfaces, the high quality material absorbs the buzz rather than translating the harshness of the surface to the rider.
BSA bottom bracket
Condor frames feature a BSA bottom bracket shell. It's an overlooked part of the frame, but a very important one. The lowly bottom bracket doesn’t get much attention, and if it's working properly, that's the way it should be — smooth and silent. The BSA bottom bracket gives you the option to fit any chainset from Shimano, SRAM, Truvativ, and many more.
