Roam Frame

The Roam in Black Market's first entry into the “real” mountain bike world and what better way to do it than with a machine designed around our proprietary Hammer Link Design. The Roam's HLD linkage system provides 6.3” of plush yet predictable bump eating travel combined with unmatched anti-squat characteristics that put every watt of power to the pedals while our low stand-over chassis keeps your Center Of Gravity (C.O.G.) low and fast.

The Roam is one of the only frames to give you the option of running 26", 650B & 29" wheels on one frame!!! This is achieved by swapping your stock 26" All Wheel Drop-Out System 26 (*"AWD Systems") for either 650B or 29" versions and using the supplied Shock Shuttle with an optional 6.5" stroke shock (* Not Included but you can swipe it from your Killswitch!!!). Of course, you will have to provide a 29" fork and front wheel to complete the conversion. There you have it... 26's, 650B's or 29's !!!
