The Pinner is a single pivot, linkage actuated, steel full-suspension chassis with 130.42mm (650B) or 134.40mm (26″) of travel for riding hard and having fun.
For 2017, it has a redesigned suspension system, along with a more progressive geometry, numerous increases in frame stiffness and strength, and reduced weight. Don’t let the short travel fool you – this frame is ready to take on any challenge, from DH uplift days to trail centre miles. The Pinner is compatible with 140 – 160mm travel forks, allowing you to further tailor the ride to your needs.
The Pinner’s rear suspension uses a linkage system to actuate the shock, which allows us to fine-tune the leverage ratio for aggressive riding with a coil shock. BTR supply a choice of 2 shocks:
- The Cane Creek DBcoil shock is an ideal fit for any rider looking for a reliable and hassle-free shock with excellent performance.
- The Extreme Racing Storia LOK is a high performance shock featuring technology derived from Extreme’s extensive WRC experience. The Storia features rebound and high- & low-speed compression adjustments, as well as a hydraulic lockout.
We’ll help you through the initial setup of either shock if needed, so you can just get on with riding your bike.
If you choose to fit your own shock, you should note that the Pinner is intended to work with a coil-sprung shock; this will give the best performance in every situation. If you must fit an air shock you should choose a relatively large volume air spring to avoid excessive spring rate progression. The Pinner needs a 190 x 50mm shock, with M8 x 25.4mm hardware at both ends. Note that some shocks may have clearance issues on the frame – if you’re not sure on fitment, get in touch and we’ll help you out.
