Tanglefoot Moonshiner Core Crafted SRAM GX 27.5+ Build

Frame Size:Extra Small
Handlebar :Ritchey Kyote

Category? We Don't Do Boxes: Sure, call it an ATB if you gotta, but that's like caging a grizzly in a hamster wheel. The Tanglefoot Moonshiner's the master of all it surveys, from Johnny Horton's whispering pines to gnar east coast rock gardens. It's as comfortable shredding singletrack as it is hauling gear across continents. This ain't a bike, it's a gall dang passport to the wild yonder. 

Wanna Tanglefoot Moonshiner but don't need to pick out every last detail?  We've put together a nice 'Semi-Stock' build that saves hundreds of dollars off a custom Moonshiner.  Every last bit of this bike is stuff we ride and like.  No filler, no fluff. 

Spec highlights include Bitex hubs laced to Velocity Blunt 35 rims, Paul Klamper brakes, a Discord stem and the best in class Nitto S92 seatpost.  Plenty of other stuff to love on there too.  More specs when you scroll down.

Core Crafted bikes allow you to customize the fit and look of the bike, but they are not custom bikes.  If you want say, White Industries hubs, or a Dynamo set up, or an E13 cassette instead the stock unit, that's a full custom bike, which we're happy to build for you.  Core Crafted bikes let you customize bar width, bar tape, pedals, bottle cages and stem set up.  

Dial your fit: 

  • Measure your pubic bone height.  THIS IS CRUCIAL.  Do the measurement 3 times, and take the highest of the 3 numbers.  Please put your PBH in the order comments!  Also put your desired bar height in: top of bars level with saddle (very aggressive fit), 1" higher (standard fit) or 2" higher (touring, relaxed fit).  Then use the size guide below to figure out your frame size. 
  • Measure your wingspan.  Just like your PBH number, you need a friend to help. Arms out straight so you are forming a T with your body.  Measure fingertip to fingertip across your shoulders.  Also put that number in the order comments.  That will help determine your stem length.  

Extra Small Frameset: 74- 77cm PBH, rider height 4'11" to 5'3.   We suggest Surly Moloko bars or cut down Ritchey Kyote bars, as the other bars can not be cut to a useable length for shorter riders.  

Small frameset:  77-80cm PBH, rider height 5'4" to 5'8".  We suggest Surly Moloko bars or cut down Ritchey Kyote bars, as the other bars can not be cut to a useable length for shorter riders.  

Medium Frameset:  80cm to 84cm PBH, rider height 5'8 to 5'11".  

Large Frameset: 84cm to 87cm PBH, rider height between 5'11 and 6'1.  

Extra Large:  88-98 PBH,  Riders between 6'2 and 6'8".  We suggest using the Crazy Bars, Seine bars or Kyote bars for bikes in this size.  

Once you've added your selection to the cart, you'll wanna snag pedals, bottle cages, bar tape (gel is included in the price of the base build here) and a saddle.  If you want the tires set up tubeless, we're happy to do that as well.  You can add that to your cart here.  If you would like use to install a dropper , you can add that here.  You don't have to get this stuff from us, we can ship the bike without any of it, but it would be cool if you did!  

The Moonshiner can take up to 5 bottle cages, so if you mix and match say 2 King Manything cages, a Widefoot Liter Cage and two simworks John Cages, let us know in the comments where you want them installed, IE on the fork, downtube, under the downtube, or seat tube.  

Once you've added it all to the cart and submitted your order, we'll get cracking on building it up.  This usually takes 30 days or less. 

Shipping is invoiced after we have boxed and weighed the bike.  We ship via bikeflights with full insurance. 

The bike will arrive having been test ridden, with cables pre bedded in.  You will have to install the pedals, bars (which will be preset up and wrapped, optimal tilt noted so it will be a snap to install), put the front wheel on and bolt on the rotors.  Slow poke mechanics will be at it for 45 minutes, reasonably fast folks could have the bike ready in 15 minutes.  All assembly and packing is done at Analog by Kat or Mark.   

*almost complete: you still have to pick out a saddle, bar tape, pedals, cages
