NS Bikes Decade Frame 2014

The Decade is a high end alloy hardtail that's proved itself in various applications. The frame was not only used by dirt jumpers who prefer the feel of alloy frames but also by 4X racers and pump track riders. The name is not a coincidence as it’s now 10 years since NS launched their first steel hardtail. We all know that steel is great, but many riders simply prefer the looks and feel of big rigid tubes. The frame shares many of the tubes and the same style as the NS Soda full suspension frames. It features a removable ISCG mount (included), removable derailleur hanger (included), headtube to fit semi integrated headset, and is designed to work with forks from 100 - 140mm of travel. The frame is incredibly strong yet still very light at just over 2.1kg. The Decade's geometry is based on the Majesty Dirt and just like their flagship steel hardtail, the Decade also features sweet arched seat stay bridges to give lots of tyre clearance.
