Tapered Head Tube


Bamboo Bicycle Club Team

“Our tapered headtube has taken many years of development. Difficult to manufacture as it requires a large diameter tube to be machined down. We are the only company producing this with a knurled finish essential for bonding. Perfect for disc forks and suited to GX and MTB frames bottom bearing fitting with a bearing cup required for the top.”
