Cielo MTB 29R Frame


So we turned to Chris King and Jay SyCip for their design and creative direction in building an agile handling cross-country steel hardtail. Chris is a Mountain Bike Hall of Fame inductee with mountain bike designs dating back to the origins of the sport while Jay has a decade of 29er fabrication to his credit. The result of their collaboration is once again, classically modern.

With decades of trail riding under our belts, mountain biking has always been near and dear to the Cielo team.

We love mountain biking and we really enjoy the ride quality of a well-made 29er.

We wanted to create a capable modern cross-country bike that will climb with verve and descend with aplomb.

The Cielo Mountain Bike is a definitive mix of form and function, the visual appeal of a classic tig-welded steel frame blended with contemporary design features. Built upon 29er tires, 650b on the XS, to increase rolling speed and braking ability. We include S-bend seatstays for additional tire and heel clearance, a 44mm taper compatible headtube for added handling stability, and Paragon Machine Works™ stainless rocker rear dropouts to provide the option of either an externally geared, internally geared, or single speed drive train.

The Cielo Mountain Bike is the perfect companion for your mountain adventures.

Each Cielo 29er frame is hand made in Portland, Oregon of True Temper OX Platinum and shares many of the custom-quality features found on our Sportif and Cross framesets. Details such as our stainless steel engraved seatstay caps and head tube reinforcement rings come from Chris King Precision Components. Also included with each frame is a Chris King sealed bearing InSet headset.

Frame includes InSet™ headset, factory installed.
