Reynolds 853 SS/Geared Hardtail


The Domahidy Designs Reynolds 853 steel hardtail is designed for one express purpose, putting a huge grin across your face. This bike’s playful spirit is intended to wisk you away on destinations near or far. With short chainstays, ample tire clearance, belt drive compatibility, and a myriad of set-up options, this is one fun machine. Due to full length external derailleur cable housing, a Velcro chainstay protector with built in cable housing sleeve, and the included SS drop out, this bike can go from full gears to single speed very quickly and easily. Simple, clean, and timeless, the Domahidy Designs Reynolds 853 steel hardtail fuses old school design with modern standards like 142/12 rear drop outs and a true tapered head tube, making that Niner taper fork look nearly seamless.
