ABOUT THE RIFLE

The Rifle weighs in at 23.6 lbs. with pedals, when set up with American Classic Sprint 350 wheels, Shimano 105 crank, and X9 rear DR, and bar end shifting. It can possibly go lighter, but the goal was a frame at or below 4 pounds. We make that on the small frame and the large bumps to 4.3 pounds. This is a very sturdy frame; the oval is big, and as close to round as possible to keep the torsion. The oval tube added to the beam stiffness to allow the use of a non-track seat clamp. We saved .25 pounds on the seat clamp modification alone! The boom is short and stiff, and the ride is smooth due to the really large joint where the chain stays meet the main tube. Having such a large joint makes the frame respond as a unit, rather that as a large tube with two other tubes attached, the loads flow through the frames as if it was one monolithic beam, aside from having a set of stays to hold on a rear wheel.

 

Experienced riders have reported the Rifle to have very fine handling, this is due to careful attention to the frame design, wheel base, which changes with sizing, and custom designed forks. These features enhance the low and high speed handling bringing about a smooth, confident feel. Acceleration is reported quick, the overall light bike and large section oval tube is why. With 700 wheels standard and a low seat, the Rifle brings a plethora of choices in wheels and running gear to the recumbent world.
