Our signature drop-bar bike packing frameset built with big miles and big plans in mind. A true go-anywhere, do-anything machine, if you can conceive it you can achieve it aboard the Dream Engine.
The Dream Engine is hand built in the USA and designed for the Tour Divide, back country exploration, fire roads and single track excursions. Of course it can also crush gravel and tour as well.
It fits a very large tire, has boatloads of mud clearance, and was built with all-day and multi-day comfort in mind.
You’ll find a full suite of features that include:
- Three pack mounts on top and bottom of the down tube, bottle mount on the seat tube, top tube bag mounts, rack and fender mounts.
- The frame is built around the Salsa Cutthroat fork which has three-pack mounts on each leg and internal dynamo and brake routing.
- For cable management, we’ve chosen to use Paragon’s modular system which allows the cleanest possible appearance and can be customized for AXS or 1X mountain setups. We use full-round cable guides on the stays as we find plastic zip ties on high-end bikes to be an inelegant compromise.
- Clearance for 29x2.6" tires.
Drop bar off-road geometry designed to be nimble in the tight stuff and carry a load with stability and confidence. The generous stack, and longer wheelbase provide comfort and stability when riding all day or descending on loose terrain.
