Pipedream Cycles are making just twenty-four of the new Titanium Moxie hardtail mountain bike. For 2020, the Ti Moxie is updated with MK3 geometry, and gets a custom-butted tube set with ovalised top tube and downtube. The steel Pipedream Moxie MK3 will set you back £649 but, as expected, this bare-metal beauty is an eye watering £1749. We have the details right here.

Pipedream’s 2020 Ti Moxie

It’s a looker, for sure. The Pipedream Moxie always has been a looker, but the new Titanium Moxie takes things up several gears. And it’s not just the classic bare-metal finish of the Ti frame that makes it stand out.

Along with its updated MK3 geometry, the tube set design is completely new too; butted and ovalised in key places, Pipedream say they’ve created “a simple and elegant hardtail that’s confident at Whistler and will happily take you deep into the wilderness for epic adventures”.

The Ti Moxie frame is fabricated from 3Al/2.5V Titanium Tubing in Taiwan, drawn and butted in-house. The top tube is quad butted and the downtube tripple-butted and bent for increased strength. Both tubes are ovalised in the horizontal plane. This lesser-spotted design feature is said to add stiffness at the BB-Downtube interface and strength at the top tube-downtube interface.

The seat tube has a 31.6 mm diameter, made to accommodate super long travel dropper posts. Riders can run up to a 185 mm dropper on the Long and Longer frames.

Available in Long and Longer, both sizes of Pipedream’s 2020 Titanium Moxie run a 420 mm seat tube, so riders will choose their size based on their desired reach figure. The Ti Moxie has MK3 geometry. That’s a nice and steep 77.5° seat angle paired with a slack 64° head angle and a reach measurement of 470 mm in Long and 510 mm in Longer.

Chainstay length is adjustable via the use of new sliding drop-outs. The 425 mm – 441 mm range will allow riders to spec a 27.5″ wheelset with up to 2.8″ tyres, or a 29″ wheelset with up to 2.5″ tyres.

The head tube has an internal diameter of 44 mm so will accommodate an angle set if 64° isn’t slack enough for you. The BB is 73 mm threaded.

  1. Beautiful. Nice to see hardcore hardtails becoming more of a thing in the bike industry. We need more of this. The Brits have been way ahead on this game for quite some time as well.

    Not only are these kind of bikes a hell of a lot of fun, but a good ones doesn’t have to cost a lot either. Getting one in Ti is getting a bike you’ll have for years too.
