By Stephen Frothingham

COLOGNE, Germany (BRAIN) — Bombtrack’s new Hook ADV bike model was inspired by 1990s-era cross-country mountain bikes, but with gravel bike handling, a 40-millimeter travel suspension fork and a dropper post.

The company said it will offer the Hook ADV in limited quantities this fall.

The bike is designed for 27.5-inch wheels. The frame is made of Columbus double-butted chromoly tubing with thru-axle dropouts, replaceable derailleur hanger and rack and fender mounts.

The fork is an MRP Baxter with a tapered steerer.

It is spec’d with Ritchey WCS Venturemax handlebars, SRAM Rival 1×11 drivetrain with hydraulic disc brakes, FSA Gossamer crank, Bombtrack hubs with WTB rims, Brooks Cambium saddle and KS E301 dropper post. Tires are WTB Ranger TCS Light, in 2.25-inch front, 2.0-inch rear.

Retail is $3,389.99 in the U.S.

Bombtrack’s U.S. distributor is NA Cycles, which can be reached at
