The Stride SE fits more into the light sport category, so more pathways and dirt roads than hardcore MTB trails.
No you can not. You can however fit up to a 120mm fork on your Stride. 140mm would put too much stress on the headtube. This could lead to frame failure, and voids your warranty.
The Stride is designed as an enthusiast sport MTB platform. Not designed for dirt jumping.
The fork and frame are disc brake ready - you would have to get wheels that are disc brake compatible, as the wheels that comes with the SE are for rim brakes only.
Can I fit a 2.5" rear tyre on my bike?
The maximum tyre size on the Stride range is 2.35" on the rear tyre.
Position of Power -Geometry designed to engage bigger muscle groups in pedalling, producing more power output for the same amount of input. Longer frame places the rider forward, in a more balanced position, improving grip on the rear wheel on climbs and on the front wheel on descents. A longer wheelbase and slacker head angle means more control at speed. Stride's Pop geometry is adapted to suit the nature of the platform.
Hydro-formed 6061 Alloy frameThe Stride SE features a class leading frame. Trickle-down technology means that the new frame benefits from our leading platforms. The frame tubes are hydro-formed into complex shapes to increase strength and stiffness, minimizing weight and excess material use. The SE is external cable routed and has a tapered headtube.
Stride SE is fitted with a purpose chosen 100mm VAXA suspension fork. A suspension fork improves comfort and traction on a hardtail mountain bike.
All Stride bicycles are fitted with quality alloy control parts. This means less weight, and more durability - for many happy trails. Similarly brand name components are chosen for durability and function, meaning that your Stride offers worry free ownership.
Stride SE features full length externally routed cable housings. These are easier to maintain than internal cables. Also, since the housing is full length, cables are less prone to dirt ingress in the system, meaning less maintenance and smoother gears and better functioning brakes for longer periods.
Surface Wheels on the Stride SE are constructed from double wall alloy extrusion. This makes for a durable, lightweight wheel with a good braking surface.
Stride SE comes with alloy V - rim brakes. V-brakes are easy to set up, easy to maintain and offer decent power and modulation.
Stride frames are rack and fender compatible. Easily set it up for what you need!
The Surface saddle that is used on the SE, is comfort focused for longer rides.
Short chainstays coupled with Pop geometry means that the Stride is more nimble through corners, yet retains overall stability.
