Red Sherpa 600L Frame And St Fork
28 Jul 2015
5 / 5
I recommend this product
In a word, delighted.

I had originally intended to rebuild my beloved but inexcusably abandoned late 80s mountain bike, lost the battle to rust, then in frustration searched for the best modern replacement.

I couldn't be happier. The frame and fork built into a brilliant, incredibly enjoyable bike. I was worried that the extra weight I'd accumulated over the years would become a factor, but with 26x2.0 tires the frame and fork seem to laugh off any such concerns (and are actively conspiring to eliminate that weight). I couldn't help choosing some 'retroish' parts, like canti brakes, as a tribute to my old bike. And if anyone's wondering, the red frame combines really well with silver coloured components!

I've been asking myself if, money no object, I could have bought something better. It's been almost a year now, and the answer is still 'NO'.
Sherpa Mk3 Frame With St1 Fork

Prosexcellent build quality
I ordered this frame and fork set as soon as they became available. They arrived quickly here in the USA and there was no damage during transit. The folks at SJS Cycles did a great job prepping it for shipment. I transferred all of the components off my old bike to this new frame, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Since my old frame was a hardtail alluminum mountain bike, it's not fair to compare handling, since the two frames are designed for different types of riding. I notice a big difference, however, in the way the Sherpa feels when speeding down a long hill. It is smooth and steady, not twitchy. The Sherpa's welds and finish are beautiful. Lots of attachment points for racks, fenders, etc. The only problem I've encountered so far is that with 26x2.0 tires, there is not enough clearance on the front fork to remove the wheel without first loosening and rotating the brake shoes so the calipers can swing out of the way. It's just a minor inconvenience. Other than that, I expect to enjoy this bike for many years and many miles to come.

Matching Frame And Fork For Red Sherpa
15 Jan 2015
If I purchase a red Sherpa frame, will the 46mm offset fork I order alongside it also be red to suit, or will it end up being black?

This is the frame only, the forks need to be purchased separately. The correct forks for the Sherpa frame are the ST26's which are available in either black or red.

What Is The Maximum Width Of Tyre That Will Fit Frame?
15 Jan 2015

You can fit up to 2" tyres with a smoother tread pattern with 55mm mudguards and obviously larger tyres without mudguards.
