Our all purpose, tough as nails, 29er adventure bike – built to take you well off the beaten track and beyond. Whether you’re running a lightweight bikepacking setup, front and rear panniers for a ’round-the-world’ tour or stripped back to thrash some forest trails the Big Bro can handle it.

The frame is made out of tough 4130 double butted cr-mo tubing with a 100mm suspension corrected fork, both with corrosion resistant ED coating applied. It comes equipped with the latest Sram NX Eagle 1×12 groupset – providing reliable shifting in the toughest of conditions. WTB Ranger 2.25″ tyres on WTB ST i25 29″ rims are a trail ready “bikepacker approved” wheelset that excels on longer rides. Last but not least the SRAM Level T hydro disc brakes give you confidence-boosting stopping power all day long.

Like all Brother products the Big Bro has been rigorously tested out in the real world – we took prototypes across the South Downs, through Snowdonia National Park and up to the Scottish Highlands. The Big Bro has since completed two of the worlds toughest bikepacking endurance races – the 4,418km Tour Divide from Canada to Mexico and the 1,710km Silk Road Mountain Race in Kyrgyzstan.

Please note: Your bike will arrive 90% assembled. You will need to attach the pedals, front brake, front wheel, handlebars, seat and a few other minor parts as well as adjust, tighten and tune. It is possible to build with moderate bicycle knowledge, however we highly recommend that you have your bike put together and checked by a professional bike mechanic for safety and proper functioning. Shipping direct to your local bike store for assembly is possible.
