Great versatility, movable axle mount at the rear wheel to change the wheelbase and tension the chain at singlespeed – check. A frame with top stiffness values that is perfectly adjusted to its field of use and a tapered head tube – check. An ISCG’05 mount at the crankset that provides the option to mount a chain guide – check. The possibility to customize your bike due to the ROSE custom-made system – check. THIS IS what our ideal dirt bike looks like – this is how THE BRUCE looks. Any other questions?
THE BRUCE – the sky is yours.
Hop on and enjoy your ride – this is what THE BRUCE 1 promises! It's the workhorse of ROSE's squad and can take a fair bit. The tubeset is extremely robust, yet not too heavy, the components are desinged for durability and robustness. During landing, cranks and bottom bracket are subject to heavy load. That is why we have given THE BRUCE 1 a Truvativ Hussefelt 1.1. This singlespeed chainring has 34 teeth. Its crank arms are hard to put in an embarrassing situation and the pedal thread inserts also set new standards with regards to durability. In dirt jumping, the wheels are subject to heavy loads, too, and this is where high quality should be a top priority. The rims are made by the company Sunringlé. The Inferno 25 stand out for a welded rim seam and excellent stability. The hubs all come from the company Halo: The front wheel is equipped with a high-quality Spin Doctor and the rear wheel with a solidly constructed and durable DJD Rear Bushed Singlespeed hub.
Our playmobile among dirt bikes, THE BRUCE 2: agile, nimble and sovereign. The frame is extremely stable and especially designed for highest loads, while only weighing almost 2000 grams. A Manitou Circus Expert with a sporty travel of 100 mm and a 20 mm thru axle can be found at the front. It is a welcome guest on many dirt bikes and impresses with a low weight, high torsional stiffness and many adjustment options. Moreover, it is easy to adjust - ranging from tight to soft, it offers the right suspension performance for everyone – and really good-looking. The wheels are smooth running, the rims come from the German company Spank. They are called Spoon and combine a good design with extremely high durability. Everything revolves around a Halo Spin Doctor – and Halo DJD Rear Bushed Singlespeed hubs. They are lightweight yet extremely durable and meet the high demands of dirt jumping.
Great deeds - great bike! Those are the moments we have developed the THE BRUCE 3 for. This bike comes with a really nice suspension fork: a Rock Shox Pike DJ Solo Air. It is surely one of the best dirt jump forks ever. It offers 100 mm of travel and the extremely stable 36 mm chassis only has a weary smile for high jumps. Yet the featherweight of only 1900 grams ensures quick response, which is no wonder taking into consideration that the lowers are made from magnesium. For improved performance, the lower tubes are also anodized for low friction. The charger damping is individually adjustable to your personal preferences. If you are using a break, it should be a really good one: The SRAM Guide R knows what really matters: Four pistons offer great braking power and control. One finger is enough to handle the concentrated power. The Guide R features a Centerline brake disc with a diameter of 160 mm and is lightweight, stable as well as very aggressive.
