The Tumbleweed Prospector is a rugged and adaptable mountain touring bike that is optimized for the Rohloff SPEEDHUB internally geared hub and derailleurs. It's the very first production bike designed and engineered to run (up to) four inch wide fat bike tires while maintaining the use of a 73mm threaded bottom bracket and eliminating the need for any proprietary fat bike specific hubs or cranksets and allowing a narrow Q factor pedaling stance. It's built with trail riding in mind, with a geometry that's suited to both challenging singletrack and the roughest of dirt roads this planet can offer!
Framesets are now available for preorder, see options below.
Here's your chance to preorder a Tumbleweed frameset or Frameset/Rohloff module. Complete bikes and rolling chassis with wheels are also available. Standard Rohloff hub included with the module is black, 32 hole, Quick Release with the OEM axleplate to fit the Tumbleweed dropout. Please email with questions to Daniel@Tumbleweed.cc
