Foundry Cycles Broadaxe 29er Hardtail

5/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $5799.00


Product Description

The Broadaxe is Foundry’s 29er. Nimble but durable, its excellent handling is due in large part to a 12mm rear thru-axle hub connected to short 438mm chainstays, with chain- and seatstays directionally shaped to balance vertical flex while maintaining excellent power transfer. The combination provides a comfy ride, but stomp on the pedals and the rear end stiffens to launch you through whatever obstacles you encounter.Amazingly, the 17” Broadaxe frame weighs in at a, very respectable 1010g (2.2lbs). This is due to carbon fiber’s unique strength-to-weight properties. Like all Foundry bikes, the Broadaxe is not meant to impress with flashy graphics or boastful claims. It’s a tool, meant to be ridden and ridden hard, and to underline this, it’s backed by Foundry’s no-hassle 10 year warranty.

Strengths:    
Original styling and finish
Light weight, rigid and supple


Weaknesses:    What no carbon wheels?

Bottom Line:   
Fits the bill for cross country racer or rigid trail explorer. Easy 19 pound build. The narrow stays and 27.2 seatpost return a dampened ride. Beware the PF92 bottom bracket uses a GPX style crank. A BB 30 crankset will not work. the cool natural matt finish gives it a no nonsense look! Doesn't hurt to have a 10 year warranty on the carbon frame!

Foundry Broadaxe build... Top or bottom pull front derailleur?

I'm doing my first build and now I just need a front derailleur to start building up the bike! I just need to know whether to get a top or bottom pull for my Foundry Broadaxe frame. It has to be Sram due to my XO shifters. It'll be for my XX crank set. It'll be a 2x10 setup. Thanks y'all!Read More »
