Privateer DJ101 Frameset

The fun doesn't end with the trail

At the heart of every Privateer is a well-thought-out and feature packed frameset, developed and built to offer the rider confidence and performance on every trail they ride. For the Privateer DJ101, we baked in these traits to ensure that our dirt jump bike is fun from the first pedal stroke and that riders of all abilities can confidently try out bigger jumps or more gnarly tricks.

Highlights:
 

  • Hydroformed 6061-T6 alloy frame.
  • Confidence-inspiring geometry.
  • Chunky horizontal dropouts with 10mm of adjustment.
  • Gyro tabs mounts for infinite bar spins.
  • Ability to build as a single-speed or with gears.
  • Clean and rattle-free external cable routing.
  • Compatible with common MTB forks.
  • Threaded BB.
  • Frameset comes with headset, chain tugs, mech hanger, seat clamp and bolt-on cable mounts.

Dialled Frame & Geometry

It all starts with a custom hydroformed 6061-T6 aluminium frameset that gives the rider the best balance of high strength and durability while remaining low in weight and offering an extremely agile geometry. A 410mm reach provides stability on high-speed flow trails while giving plenty of room to still be playful when throwing whips and tricks, and the 69-degree head angle provides the perfect balance of quick steering response and confidence at speed.

Chunky, Adjustable Dropouts

When trying out new tricks and new lines, it's a given that sometimes even the best riders will come up short. This is why we've paid close attention to the dropouts on the DJ101 and provided that they can handle the strain of repeated big hits and harsh landings. Our chunky alloy 6061-T6 horizontal dropouts also offer the rider up to 10mm of adjustment so you can dial in the chainstay and wheelbase based on your riding style or the type of trails you're tackling that day. To keep your wheel where it needs to stay and to ensure consistent chain tension, the DJ101 ships with heavy-duty chain tugs that offer simple and secure adjustment.

Gears or Singlespeed

While we expect most riders to run the DJ101 as a single-speed, we've included a chunky replaceable mech hanger as part of the frameset giving you the flexibility to ride as a simple DJ bike or add gears for some weekend 4X action.

Bar Spin Ready Design and Secure Cable Routing

The DJ101 features a tapered headtube with bosses that allow riders to run a gyro for those who want to perform more than one barspin at a time. These bosses are designed to work with the most popular cable or hydraulic gyros on the market though additional mounting hardware may be necessary (not included).

No New Standards

We love that dirt jump bikes are fun and simple to build, ride and look after and to keep with this ethos of simplicity, we've designed the DJ101 to accept standard mountain bike parts. The headset is an easy-to-source ZS44/56 standard, and like all of our bikes, the DJ101 uses a threaded BB.

Everything in the Box to Build

Every Privateer DJ101 frameset ships with the following parts: Seat clamp, FSA ZS44/56 headset, heavy-duty chain tugs, replaceable mech hanger and bolt-on cable/hose clamps.

Geometry

Privateer E161 seat stay in raw

Working with our sponsored riders, our engineers worked hard to bring the same level of confidence and responsiveness we all know and love from the 161 over to the Privateer E161. For the E161, we've slackened the seat angle to 78.7 degrees to place the rider over the rear wheel to get the traction down when tackling loose, steep climbs where the torque from the Shimano EP8 really comes into its own while retaining a 64-degree head angle that keeps the front wheel nicely planted for immense levels of grip.


The Privateer E161's forward-thinking geometry includes size specific chainstay lengths, which increase from 446mm in the P1-P2 sizes to 456mm on the P3 and 466mm on the P4. This increase in chainstay length is proportional to the increase in reach and grows as we size up. By keeping the front centre to the rear centre weight bias ratio as close as possible, we can ensure that each size of Privateer E161 shares the same agile handling and confidence-inspiring stability so all sizes of riders can enjoy a high-performance riding experience.
