The Bike You've Been Asking For - Privateer's 141 16

The Privateer 161 made waves with its geometry, features, and price tag. The 141 seeks to do the same in a shorter travel package. Yeow!

The Bike You've Been Asking For - Privateer's 141

When we launched the 161, many riders loved the Enduro World Series race-focused concept, but we know not everyone has access to world-class steep and technical alpine trails. We listened, and here it is, the 141.

Built to handle everything from your local trail loop to park laps, or even a local Enduro race or two. Taking our proven platform and stretching out the seated position slightly gives riders more room to enjoy those undulating sections of trail.

With 141 mm of travel, the 141 is ready to ease you to the top with its steep climbing position, whilst its progressive geo will let you focus on the next chute, tight switch back or fun side hit on the way back down.

Who said versatility has to be boring?

Progressive focus, rider driven frame : 6066-T6 frame fabricated by industry-renowned Taiwanese welders.

Headtube Guides : Keeping annoying cattle rub and rattle to a minimum
Three Bearings in Main Pivot : Bearings are always offset due to the chainring, so having two bearings on the drive side helps spread the load

Threaded BB and ISCG 05 Mounts : With a focus on serviceability, threads make the most sense. And when every second counts, the security of a chain guide lets you focus on the stage ahead.

One-Piece Rocker Link : A one-piece rocker keeps alignment high for longer bearing life whilst increasing stiffness and strength

Im actually asking for a 161, but this is nice as well. These guys make sick bikes.

I love it. But what I'm reeeeeeally asking for is a P5 fit for the 161 for us tall guys. Finally companies like Privateer are building bikes with geometry that actually suits taller riders, just not the actual bikes.

How tall are you. I’m between 6’3” and 6’4” and ridding an XXL sentinel alloy. Transition sizing suggests I’m squarely on XL. I’d be curious to ride an XL, I know a guy my height who rides a large sentinel so go figure. This bike is only 5mm shorter than my bike so I think I could live with it for the things is has that I want. Longer chainstays, steeper seat tube, more progressive leverage curve. But I’m afraid that the full 27mm shorter top tube would feel cramped climbing. The last time I owned bikes that short in the top tube they had 60 and even 70mm. Stems.

Looks like a great all around bike. I Defo don’t need the 161 for where I ride! Hope Raaw follows and gives us a mini Madonna. Love these 2 brands

I think US pricing is off, the 161 is $3075 when you subtract the VAT for non-UK/EU. Looks like UK and EU pricing is consistent with the 161.

For us that failed analytic geometry class. Is it no go for running 27.5 wheels? i still think 27.5 is better for short legged folks like me.

That information was not given prior to launch. Now that the bike is public, we went to the Privateer site, looked up the information you are asking about, and added it to the release.
