The US-brand from Carter Holland, known for his Dirt Jump bikes, enters the long-travel segment with an all-new enduro bike: The Black Market Roam.
The frame works with a four-bar-linkage with 6 travel options and is compatible with all three wheelsizes by exchanging the drop-outs.
You can find the origin and the spirit of Blackmarket Bikes also in their enduro bike Roam with a very low standover (26.5“ in XS, 28“ in L) and a quite playful / nimble geometry.
With 26“-wheels you have 130-160mm of rear travel and a chainstay length of 17.00“- 17.5“. The 650B model offers 135-165mm of rear travel and 17.25“-17.75“ chainstays. The 29er has 140-170mm of rear travel (but is supposed to be only run with 140mm) and a chainstay length of 17.5“ – 18.00“. The increased amount of rear travel is due to the fact that with the longer drop-outs the travel path gets longer.
The frame is already available and costs 2.000 Dollars without shock.
