When Bombtrack approached us about doing a Houseblend build the Cale AL was the obvious choice. A contemporary hardtail that’s just as comfortable riding singletrack as it is loaded with bags.

For this build we took a BMX inspired approach to build a bike that was fun in all situations. A short and wide cockpit with our favourite Soma Dreamriser bars compliments the OneUp dropper post and encourages you to get sideways. The carbon WeAreOne wheels paired with Terravail Sparwood tyres not only looks good but also makes it feel like you’re riding on a cloud! The whole biuld is finished off with a rigid ENVE cabron fork and the partial bolt-on frame bag from Stealth bags.
