Magura MT7 with HC3 Blade Upgrade - Can Be Added At Checkout

  • The ultimate street trials bike!
  • Top spec, with optional upgrades.
  • The last edition of this iconic line!
- The last ever iteration of the Inspired Skye Team V3.5!
- The V3.5 framekit builds upon the success of the V3 kit, but with improved dropouts featuring an innovative teardrop/tapered insert, with captive bolt for the through axles.
- New for the latest bikes, the Skye is fitted with Inspired Team V2 rims and Hope Tech 3 Trial Zone Brakes as standard (Magura MT7 Brake Upgrade available at the Checkout).

Frame:
- New hydroformed front triangle is much stiffer and stronger than ever before, largely in part to the bigger square-profile down tube. This tube has a much larger junction to the top tube and head tube, making the front end - a crucial area on these bikes - as strong as possible.
- The rear face of the tapered head tube is machined square to give a nice flat area to weld on, improving the strength of the join.
- The frame still uses a 12mm through axle for the rear wheel, but revised dropouts use an evolution of their previous system. The axle now screws in to a tapered boss on the frame, so should you damage the threads it is simple to replace.
- Super chunky +20mm positioned IS disc mount is one piece with the non-drive side dropout, making the mount so strong no bracing bar is required!
- The BB yoke is a 2-piece design, with each half machined out internally to save as much weight as possible whilst making sure it is stiff and strong enough to cope with the demands of Danny's riding. The two are welded together along the centre-line of the yoke, a design not previously seen in trials frames before.
- The BB is a standard threaded design making it compatible with a wide range of cranks.
- The neat single-sided chain tensioner is mounted to the frame using a new, lower profile replaceable integrated mount.
- A completely new seat stay/seat tube/top tube junction has been proven through extensive testing to be stronger than ever before.

Forks:
- As with the frame, the V3 forks are a completely new model compared to the last generation.
- Chunky legs provide unparalleled strength and stiffness, but also maintain a low overall weight for the fork due to their tube thickness.
- A completely new steerer tube and crown design is more than up to the job of coping with the extreme forces Danny puts through the front end of his bike.
- The V3 forks retain the same tapered steerer tube as the previous generation of fork, again making the forks as strong as possible.
- New top cap design screws into the threaded steerer tube and allows the hose to be routed through the steerer if required. We can send the bikes with the hose through the steerer if you like, please also purchase the "Other Hydraulic Disc Brake" option of this Workshop Item if you would like the hose to be routed through the steerer. If you do not add this item, the bike will be sent with the hose not routed through the steerer as shown in the pictures.
- 20mm through axle CNC-machined dropouts are welded on to the lower of the fork legs in a unique way, and also use a similar tapered boss system to the rear through axle arrangement.

This bike is supplied with a 6 month warranty covering manufacturing and materials defects. The warranty does not cover mistreatment or poor maintenance. Please ensure all the details on the warranty sheet supplied with the bike are adhered to. Certain circumstances (such as stripped threads or rounded crank arm tapers) only occur due to a lack of correct maintenance and all manufacturers are aware of these situations, so any claims due to incorrect maintenance procedures are much less likely to be successful.

We build this bike to a 100% complete state in our workshop before dispatch to ensure all items are manufactured correctly and nothing is missing, but we do have to remove some parts to ensure there is no damage during transit. You will need some basic tools (usually 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 8mm allen keys and a 15mm spanner) for final assembly upon arrival. We have a video guide here to help, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any further assistance.

Questions

Thomas Molloy

Hi, I'm debating whether to change from the Fourplay Team to the Skye V3. Would that be possible given I ordered the Fourplay under the Earlybird and I assume you haven't started to build it up yet? If not, its not a problem at all. If I can change, I have a few questions first before making up my mind: 1. What are the major differences between the Fourplay Team and The Skye V3? What would they be best suited for in terms of riding style? 2. What effect does the geometry have on the handling of the bikes? I'm 5'11", with long legs and a short torso if that makes any difference to positioning on either of the bikes. 3. What benefits do you get from the through rear axel? Is it stiffer on the back wheel? Cheers

Hi Thomas!
Changing your order would be no problem. If you'd like to do so, either give us a call or an e-mail and we can get the ball rolling for you.
One way to think of it is that the Skye is an upgraded Fourplay Team. They share many similar characteristics (e.g. the tapered head tube, integrated chain tensioner, hollow dropouts, integrated disc mount and so on), but the Skye has a few choice upgrades.
For example, rather than the bolt-in 10mm rear hub and 15mm front through axle on the Fourplay, the Skye features a 12mm rear through axle and a 20mm front through axle. This gives improved stiffness and rigidity at both ends of the bike.
As well as these 'obvious' changes there are subtle ones too. The rear of the Skye head tube is flattened off rather than rounded - the benefit of this is that when the top tube is welded to it, there isn't the stress riser associated with where the very top end of the top tube would be welded to a round head tube. Not necessarily a huge detail, but it ensures the Skye has that extra bit of strength. It's these little details that help set it apart.
They're both designed for a very similar riding style, with the only real difference being the Skye is a little shorter so it will feel a little more compact and stiffer. This means that for some moves it's easier to move the bike around under you, and translates to quite a playful feel. Some riders might find the extra reach of the Fourplay more beneficial for trials-orientated moves though.
For your height, either the Fourplay or the Skye would be suitable. We know of riders way over 6ft riding the Skye, so the shorter reach shouldn't be an issue for you.

Hi, do you know when you have the red inspired skye frame kit in stock?

Posted by Jonas Nieberle

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jonas!
We don't have a re-stocking date from Inspired for this framekit, sorry!
They make a small batch of frames each time, and if all the frames are allocated to complete bikes then that means they aren't able to offer them as a frame kit. That has been the case with the latest shipment of red Skyes, unfortunately.

Hi, Unfortunately the Inspired Skye Frame Kit is sold out and the complete bike kit is available. Can I buy only the Inspired Skye Frame Kit?

Hi Jonas!
Unfortunately we aren't able to split the Skye Team bikes, sorry. The bikes arrive with us largely assembled, so the parts all have the usual marks associated with being fitted to a bike which mean we can't sell them on separately as new products.
