With the Linkin, Bold Cycles have created a blazingly-fast mountain bike that makes the competition look old, especially concerning shock integration. The rear linkage is designed so that the shock is tucked away in the frame, giving the Linkin its striking minimalist look. Inside the frame, the shock is protected from dirt, but surprisingly enough adjusting it remains easy thanks to clever details such as the magnetic sag indicator. The rear end can be adjusted in three stages via the TracLoc remote, allowing you to transform the Linkin from a hard-hitting trail bike into an efficient climber or relaxed tourer, all in the blink of an eye. With its one-piece Syncros cockpit, cables neatly routed through the headset and stylish paint job on the clear-coated carbon fibre, the Linkin impresses with its elegance quite unlike any other bike in the industry. The compartment in the down tube is another integration highlight, equipped with Bold’s “Save the Day” toolkit and enough space for the essentials of your choice. The universal frame platform is available with either 135 mm or 150 mm travel at the rear and features adjustable geometry.
