Well this is a lovely looking bike isn’t it? Introducing the Tripster AT.

I’ve written before about the attraction of so-called adventure bikes, covering the Mason Bokeh which remains an object of lust to me. Now Kinesis have launched their take on the genre, the Tripster AT which comes in at a much more affordable price point.

It is based on their Tripster ATR Ti which has been out for a while, at least in terms of geometry. That means a 70.5° head angle and a long wheelbase of around 1038mm. It has bolt through axles at both ends, internal cable routing and clearance for 45mm tyres on 700c rims (40mm with full mudguards) or the option of 52mm tyres on 650b rims. So ride it wherever you want, on or off-road on anything that counts as cross country, in a configuration that suits your tastes.

Looking at the Seeon fluoro yellow, this is very likely to be my next commuter, or at least is near the top of my list. Mind you, the Arran blue looks pretty good too…

Lots more information about the Tripster AT can be found on the Kinesis website and on the Road Cycling UK website, among many other sites. I think the cycling press is going to really get behind this.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
