Introducing the Deviate Cycles Guide - A New Gearbox-Equipped Mountain Bike
UK-based Deviate Cycles is proud to unleash The Guide, a 160mm travel enduro bike built around the fully-sealed Pinion C-Line gearbox. The brand sings the praises of the gearbox and its 600% gear range, low and centralized mass, improved ground clearance, and less sprung weight for improved suspension performance. At under 33-pounds (15.0kg) this bike is among the lightest full-suspension gearbox bikes available. The frame uses a high pivot point for a rearward axle path and an idler for zero chain growth.
