The Podsol from bc original - All-Mountain hardtail frame in 29" for your home-town trails


If you want to build a versatile, rugged and agile 29" MTB for all-mountain use, then you should opt for the bc original Podsol hardtail frame. With its direct and playful handling, it'll provide you with endless amounts of fun on your hometown trails. When riding uphill, the aluminium chassis transforms every pedal stroke into direct propulsion, and it goes without saying that it can take a lot downhill as well. The Podsol features a classic frame shape that meets the requirements of modern mountain bikers, and allows tyres up to 2.5" of clearance. Its minimalist high-end design with externally mounted cable routing and BSA bottom bracket offers reliability and uncomplicated maintenance.

Hold on: what does Podsol mean?
" The Aachen Forest sits atop a type of soil called 'podsol.' Since the frame was developed for our (and also your own) hometown trails, where the ground surface plays a decisive role, we decided to name it in honour of that." - Christoph, Product Manager.

Hi everyone, I purchased this frame almost a year ago and I have to say it is the best hardtail I have ever ridden. It is balanced, burly, light and agile. I rode it on the North Shore of Vancouver, British Columbia which is not particularly its' design or spec, but the bike could handle it. The pricing is super attractive and the attention to detail (and commitment from the designers) is very much appreciated. They have a review on Pinkbike, and I think the guys at Bikecomponents.de spent 2 or 3 years designing the perfect frame. Well done and a great contribution to the sport and industry.

Also die Rahmen ist einfach top, tolle Optik und fährt auch sehr gut. Sehr komfortabel und stabil. Habe aber zwei Überdenken, erstens, es wäre vielleicht besser in die Rahmen Gabel mit Offset 44 ausrüsten, habe 51 und denke dass mit Offset 44 wird ganzes Bike leichter und direkter zu steuern. Zweitens, im Beschreibung steht dass mit boost crankset und Chainline 52mm können Sie bis 36t Chainring einbauen, ich habe slx m7100 mit 32t und habe nur ca 2mm Luft, habe aber auch slx m7120 mit 55mm Chainline und passt 34t Chainring auch mit ca 2mm Luft, wenn jemand 36t Chainring eingebaut hat dann bitte um einen Kommentar und Foto.
Gruss

This is a very nice frame. Ridden it with both 130 and 140 mm travel. 140 feels like the way to go for me. The cable routing is indeed a bit puzzling but it is doable to get it very neat. Love the classic look, no cable rattling due to the cable clips. Spacers are needed for a water bottle cage if you don't want any cables to bend around it. Tektro olives for spacers will work great. Running it with 2.4 tires and medium weight wheels. Feels very nimble and capable. A lot of fun to work on. Much love for the BSA BB. I hate press fit.
