It arrived under a clear night sky and a blood moon. It’s a Framed Wolftrax!

The folks at Framed have lent us a brand spanking new Wolftrax to put through it’s paces over the next few weeks. We’ve had the Wolftrax for about a week and have already put over 90 good miles on it.

As the miles get tacked on, I’ll take notes, and report back to you about how the bike performs in a few weeks. So far, it has enjoyed a debauchery-filled weekend at Fat Camp as well as my usual (less debauched-filled) weekly rides. Now, the deets (after we break for this nice picture, of course):

The Wolftrax is being sold through independent bicycle retailers only; so if you want one, call up your local bike shop and ask if they sell Framed Bikes! Our test bike, came Bluto and Sram X1 1×11 equipped. Framed also offers the Wolftrax in several colors, as well as 1x, 2x, rigid alloy or carbon/RST/Bluto fork combinations. Thus, your build may be realized in several different ways.  And, of course, price of this steed varies on the spec. Stay tuned for the complete run-down of the Wolftrax’s undertakings; it’s got places to go and things to see.
