New budget mountain bike frame from Engage Bikes

Cross-country chassis for just £140

New Bristol-based company Engage Bikes have released details of their first mountain bike frame – a 6061 aluminium cross-country hardtail dubbed the Soul Brother.


Retailing at £99.99, it has a semi-integrated headset, IS disc mounts, will take forks with up to 100mm of travel and is available in 17in and 19in sizes, with extra sizes available soon.

Engage Bikes main man Alex Mullholland told BikeRadar his aim was to offer mountain bike products at an “accessible pricepoint without the dull colours and graphics normally associated with this price band”.


As well as the Soul Brother, Engage also have a BMX frame, and there are more products in the pipeline. For more details, visit
