Custom geometry hardtail mountain bike for tyre sizes up to 29*2.4 using a boost drivetrain or 650b+ tyres with more limited chainring size options.

Tara is an Old Irish name meaning hill and referring to the ancient archaeological site "The Hill of Tara" in Meath, Ireland. In Irish mythology the hill of Tara is believed to be an entrance to the otherworld. Much of Irish mythology is connected to the landscape and sacred places -  We like to celebrate Tom’s Irish ancestry whenever possible and what better connection than a bike designed for exploring the great outdoors. 

Tara is the Sturdy answer to a versatile short travel hardtail. With a fully custom geometry set this bike can be tuned to your specific riding scenario. This bike could be the perfect adventure hardtail for any off-road endurance race, it could be an ideal cross country racing machine or even your weekend bike for taking to the local trail centre. We believe short travel hardtails are the ideal way to preserve the handling characteristics of a frame so we recommend maximum 130mm travel forks.
