Frame: The Access GTC frame has everything you'd expect from a performance chassis. We've designed the GTC Twin Mould frame with a number of stiffness-enhancing characteristics to ensure maximum efficiency and steering precision: large tube diameters, a tapered head tube, PressFit bottom bracket shell and an X12 axle at the rear. The slender 27.2mm seatpost adds a dose of comfort and Direct Mount front and rear derailleurs, internally routed cables and integrated Post Mount disc mount are all state-of-the-art. Revised Agile Ride Geometry makes for superb, fun handling on technical singletrack and incredible efficiency for racking up the miles.
Agile Ride Geometry
We ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in our series of big wheel bikes. We also added the 27.5in wheel size to the very well received portfolio. Three important details lead to the very agile character. Increased fork offsets let us achieve the same trail as our 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly we shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. We invented a patented construction to mount the front derailleur to give us more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least we kept the BB height the same as on our 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
