What is the Hooky? It's whatever you want it to be!
The Hooky is an innovative, do it all and do it well aluminum frame for the person wanting flexibility when building up their own ride. The Hooky can accommodate a 27.5 inch tire up to 3 inches wide or a 29 inch mountain bike tire up to 2.4 inches wide. It is equipped with sliding rear dropouts so you can go with a traditional derailleur setup or quickly change it to a single speed. By selecting the corresponding drop out inserts you can use a 135, 142, or 148 mm axle.
