Bummed that you missed out on the turquoise Prospectors? Want to construct your very own 29+ dream machine? Ride a medium? We have got a deal for you!
This is the rolling chassis from BTN’s demo Prospector V1 - up for sale and ready to build into the all-terrain touring bike you’ve been imagining. The Prospector was painstakingly designed and engineered to be the best mountain touring bike available at any price. Designed around the 14-speed Rohloff Speedhub internal gear (but fully derailleur-compatible) this bike is built to carry you and your gear anywhere a bicycle can go. The combination of the top-quality heat treated Cr-Mo steel frame and bombproof drivetrain delivers a rock-solid, low maintenance setup for exploration far beyond the end of the beaten path. Maximized frame bag space (the large Revelate Ranger bag fits this medium frame) and plenty of rack and cage mounts offer plenty of ways to carry your gear.
What you see is what you get:
- Prospector V1 frameset, Medium. 61cm effective top tube. Fits most riders between 5'7" and 5'11. See the chart above for complete geo.
- Fork steerer tube cut to 207mm. 7cm of useable stack above tall cover headset.
- Rohloff in polished silver, 16t cog. Twist shifter and cable kit included - assembled and ready to mount.
- Hand-built wheelset with Surly SS front hub, WTB Scraper i40 rims, DT Competition spokes and brass nipples.
- Surly Knard 120tpi tires, running tubeless.
- Cane Creek 40 headset.
Full Warranty: 3 years on frameset. BTN-built wheels guaranteed for the life of the rim - WTB's rim warranty is 2 years.
Headset, BB eccentric insert, 16t cog and seatpost clamp are 100% new and unridden. Less than 400 miles on the rest.
A new Prospector module (Frameset with Rohloff hub kit) will set you back $2,700, so you're getting a complete hand-built wheelset, tires and headset for free! This setup would retail for over $3,500 brand new.
Frame has minor scuffs from frame bag abrasion, rack/cage attachment and cable rub. The left side of the fork crown (pictured) is by far the worst spot. Only cosmetic damage.
