The Beast is for riders who want to get off the beaten track.
Equipped with the BLB 650b wheelset and Big Ben 2.00 tyres (for grip and comfort in off-road conditions), a 1X groupset (to get up the steepest muddy climb), hydraulic disc brakes to ensure you come safely down the other side and a set of HOBO flat bars allowing great comfort and the ability to attach lights, phones, GPS systems – whatever you need! With braze-ons to attach front and rear racks, this is a bike for people who want to disappear either to get super muddy or get well away from society!
The Hitchhiker frameset was designed by our inhouse team for adventure - from smooth roads to single tracks, gravel paths to cityscapes and beyond, the BLB Hitchhiker does it all and more. Built from Columbus Cromor tubing, this is a super strong, beautifully built frameset.
If you chose a Hitchhiker build, it’ll be hand built in our workshop so the specification can be amended to fit your exact requirement, so once you make the order, one of our team will make contact to talk through all of the possible options.
