Privateer officially launched the 141 late very last year, whilst, like anything at all produced through the pandemic, the products has slowly but surely been trickling from manufacturing warehouses onto the filth. Our examination sample was 1 of the very first in the US and Privateer has, like most other brand names, been promoting them as quickly as they can make them.
The 141 is the British isles brand’s 2nd design, right after the 161. The trail bike follows the enduro bike’s footsteps: a muscular frame, with significant-obligation hardware and componentry that ought to keep up through just about anything. Eyeing above the “trail” bike, it is tough to inform what the difference is involving this and a spherical peg in a spherical hole enduro bicycle, apart from purely the vacation figures.
The 141 has a 150mm fork, and the aluminum body receives big ol’ bearings, a threaded bottom bracket, a trunnion-mounted shock, and both equally internal and external cable where by it helps make perception. All of this must make wrenching less complicated on the un-sponsored rider the bikes are produced for.
Geo is pretty lengthy on this 1, but which is the name of the recreation with Privateer. On our P2 exam sample, the achieve is 465mm, the STA is 78.76°, the HTA is 64.5°, the chainstays are 440mm (sizing-unique), and the wheelbase is 1,235.68mm.
Our Shimano SLX-equipped make rings in at $3,949 and framesets start off at $1,759. Seem for the total assessment before long.
