Identiti P66 frame review£289.99

Abuse friendly chassis

BikeRadar score3/5

The P66 is the latest frame in a long line of bomb-proof bike park and freeride-ready hardtails from Identiti. The long, low geometry has evolved from the popular and successful 666 series.

The length adds stability and balance, making the P66 ideal for dirt jumping, freeride or playing about on, depending on the length of the fork (up to 130mm travel, or 5.1in) you fit.

The internally-butted 4130 steel TAF tubing takes the sting out of cased landings, and the inset headset head tube and low top tube keep the frame out of your way in the air.

Movable dropouts make singlespeeding simple, but there’s no ISCG mounts and only one size. Loads of colours and a DIY decal kit complete this dirt devil.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
