New Prototype Morpheus Carbon Downhill Bike

New Morpheus Carbon Downhill Bike

Morpheus bikes is hopping on the carbon DH bike trend. Pictured above is a very close to production frame which will be released towards the end of this year. The complete build pictured shown weighs 32.8 lbs. Retail is expected to be $3300 for a frame with a Cane Creek Double Barrel Shock or $4,900 complete.

The frame itself is extremely adjustable. It features the company’s patented telescopic rear dropout system which allows for chainstay adjustments between 16.5 and 18″. Travel is adjustable via extendable shock mounts anywhere from 180 to 225mm. The BB can also be adjusted anywhere from 13.6 to 14.6″ and the head angle is also  adjustable from 62.8 to 65.5 and any angle in between. Stand over is 27.5.”

There is zero chain growth due to the concentric BB pivot, so if you’re hard on derailleurs, you can run this bike single speed without a chain tensioner.

Head past the break for the bullet points.

  1. I’d pay at least $ 0.25 to see the results of the ol’ one hand on the setpost-one hand on the rear tire flex test.

  2. Concentric single pivot… bound to pedal like a champ, not to mention the predominantly forward wheel path.
