Set up in 2011 by two friends Burf and Tam, BTR Fabrications are a couple of guys that love riding bikes and making stuff. Specialists in handmade downhill bike frames, BTR don’t care about joining in with the latest ‘hype’ but love making bikes that are fun, fast and reliable.
The Belter has just been joined by the Ripper, and the Ranger in the BTR Fabrications lineup:
The Ranger is the ultimate Gravity Enduro or all-day shredding hardtail frame. Designed around Gravity Enduro racing; it’s low, stable and tough enough to smash the downhills, and it’s light and efficient enough to get you to the top of the next stage without breaking a sweat. Whether you’re looking for the ultimate in Gravity Enduro hardtails, or just a “do anything” fun ride, the Ranger is the bike for you.
The Ripper is designed for riders aged between 9 and 13. It gives the same ride characteristics as its big brother, the Belter, but uses 24″ wheels for a smaller, lighter and more nimble package. For the ultimate ripper or juvenile gravity hardtail, look no further than the Ripper!
Filmed by our friends at geebeebee media ‘From The Ground Up’ is a documentary of the BTR frame build process and the things that make us tick, shot over a weekend in the workshop.
