The definition of “mountain biking” covers a lot more terrain than it used to. Fortunately, the Horsethief is designed and built for most of that terrain. Our all-around 29” trail bike encourages you to tackle the technical features or roll the fun and flowy sections from dawn to dusk with the stability of trail geometry and 120mm of Split Pivot rear suspension with a 140mm fork. Horsethief features the ability to run 29” or 27.5 plus tires and a flip chip for fine-tuning headtube angle and bottom bracket height. The 12-speed SRAM SX drivetrain and 6066-T6 aluminum frame make for an efficient and trouble-free ride on just about any trail you put it up against.

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
