HTech Bikes (Australia) – Press Release: The Juncture range of 5 models starts from only $980AUD. This makes the Juncture the lowest priced performance wooden bike frame/complete bike on the market. Bringing unparalleled comfort and ride quality to the masses.
HTech Bikes – a brand known for innovation and pushing the boundaries of wooden bike frame design have made further advancement. The new Juncture range comes from the want for a more affordable performance wooden bike frame. The Juncture is revolutionary not just for the niche market of wood bikes but also entry level road bikes. Bringing the comfort and performance advantages of a timber frame to more riders around the world at a lower cost.
Designed and built by HTech Bikes, a lower price doesn't mean lower quality, the HTech Juncture comes with the same level of build quality and craftsmanship as HTech Bikes premium frames without sacrificing HTech's signature smooth performance ride characteristics. The Juncture range is designed to be built as efficiently as possible while still allowing the levels of customisation expected from a small manufacturer. Built as the little brother of the HTech Aeriform the Juncture shares its base geometry and some design and construction features with the Aeriform. It’s compact frame and short wheelbase leads to exceptional handling capabilities. As with every HTech since 2016 the new Juncture frame uses HTech Bikes leading SCR (Selective Carbon Reinforcement) technology creating a lighter yet stiffer frame unparalleled in its price bracket.
The Juncture J and JX top out the Juncture range with their full jarrah construction. With the P1 made of plywood and the P2, P3 from combination of plywood and jarrah. Each leading to addition levels of frame stiffness and ride handling. The P1 is the lightest in the range with exceptional levels of comfort and compliance. While the JX is stiffest, best handling of the range bridging the gap, but not outdoing the race ready, premium Aeriform. Fitted with a standard 68mm BSA Bottom bracket, traditional headset and clamp-on front derailleur, the Juncture is simplicity at it’s finest. Each frame can be fitted with standard road bike parts.
