I recommend this product
ProsFrame ready for equipment to be bolted on, all bolts the right size and right type
Such a good service to have on a new frame. All the bolts I needed were there, all the threads were ready, even the bottom bracket went into place easily and well.
Gave me huge confidence for building up a bike (my first time).

It was good to have all the threads tapped but I did not realise the stainless bolts were not Allen key bolts.
Questions & Answers (3)
could you set the thorn audax frame from 132.5 OLD to 130 permanently ??
01 Dec 2017

If you are planning on using a 130mm OLD rear wheel permanently there are no implications and will be absolutely fine.

Does This Include Bb Cable Guide?
10 Nov 2016
Does this include mountain of a cable guide on the underside of the BB or is that already supplied with the frame? If not, what type of cable guide is required for a Sherpa frame? And is there any reason why you supply hex bolts for this frame, allens for others?

The BB cable guide should already be supplied with the frame. We normally fit hex head bolts on the more robust touring bikes as they tend to get used in muddier conditions and the allen key bolts can fill with mud. If you email us after you have placed your ordering specifically asking for allen key bolts instead then we can fit these instead for you.

Can Hex Bolts Be Changed To Allen Key Bolts?

When ordering for a Sherpa frame.

It is possible to specify allen key bolts if you wish, all you'll need to do is email us after you have placed the order with your order number and just state that you'd like to change to allen key bolts and we'll make sure that happens for you.
