Safari V3 Frame
This is the latest version of Reed Stark's signature Safari frame, updated with a shorter 12.8-13.2" rear end, which is a halflink shorter than the old version. It also utilizes our Superscoop chainstay tubing for extra tire clearance when your wheel is slammed.
The Safari frame is designed to Reed's specification with a super long front end combined with a short back end and regular head angle. Simple yet effective!

Our new Superscoop chainstay provides more tire clearance for when your wheel is slammed. The tubing is press formed post bending to create extra room where it's needed most without the need for an invest cast yoke.
Invest Cast Dropouts
Because the dropout is cast as one piece it's much stronger than a plate welded to a tube. 7mm thick to provide good support for your axle, and the small shape has been designed for grinding meaning there's no overhang to catch on ledges or rails, also the dropout is heat treated before welding making it extra tough. And finally there;s an integrated chain tensioner bolts inside.
On a frame the highest concentration of stress is at the junctions between the headtube/toptube and headtube/downtube. To handle the pressures of modern riding, the required strength is achieved by beefing this area up using a combination of butted tubing and external gussets.
