Introducing the Deviate Cycles Guide - A New Gearbox-Equipped Mountain Bike 3

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.

    I’ll take it it really need the climb switch then and the chain stay is only there to acativate the shock?

    Nope 110% AS, nice.
