29″ / Mullet Ready / 160mm / 180mm

This is the most modifiable frame in our lineup. The frame can be built with a pure 29″ and 29″ setup or a “mullet” 27,5″ in the back and 29″ in the front. Business in the front and party in the back. A Stamina with snappier rear travel with no Enduro on it. Stamina 160 was designed for those, who prefer gravity-oriented party machine with Pole geometry. This bike is a 29er that can be built as mullet*.


  • Party: It’s not a race bike – it’s a Braaap! Stamina 160 is rad and well-fed mix of its siblings. Chainstay has the same length as in Stamina 140. The front triangle follows the same design as in Stamina 180. Rear travel: 160mm. This frame was designed to be built as 29er or a mullet bike.
  • Business: Our business is to make better products each year. Stamina 160 has more aluminium in the front than it used to be. This is a stiffer party Pole!
  • Drinks: You know it. With Stamina, you and your buddies won’t die in thirst while having your trail parties.
  • More is more: With a yoke swap, Stamina 160 can be turned into a Stamina 180 with a shorter rear. Our version of a frame modifier.
  • No riff-raff: Stamina 160 is sold as a frameset only. Why? Because that’s how a mullet should be done.
  • Made in the coolest place: Designed, CNC-machined, bonded and then finished by us here in Muurame, Finland.


If you ever get bored of your bike and want to try something else, Stamina 160 can be transformed between 29er and a mullet. With a yoke swap**, you are able to even change the rear travel from 160mm to 180mm.

*Mullet: Common name for a mountain bike with mixed wheel size. Usually 27,5″ wheel in the rear and 29″ wheel in the front.

** 160mm to 180mm conversion yoke sold separately.

Options for different builds

You can change the bike from MUllet to Pure 29″ or vice versa with some simple changes. The geometry of this frame is designed for the ultimate bike enthusiast who wants to experiment with the different wheel sizes and travel options.
