Inspired Hex Frame Kit

- Reintroduced by Inspired, the Hex Frame Kit!
- Building on the success of the proven first generation Inspired Hex frame, the frame kit features an updated version of the frame along with colour-matched Inspired Team fork and FSA Orbit Equipe sealed bearing headset.
- Butted 7005 aluminium tubing provides a good blend of strength to weight.
- Extensive testing with various riders including Ali C and Thomas Ohler ensures the Hex offers a level of quality and performance that cannot be found in any other 26 street frame.
- Externally butted 1 1/8" headtube is reinforced by using external top and downtube gussets.
- One-piece 68mm wide bottom bracket and chainstay yoke offers excellent clearance for both the tyre and the chainring. Fits standard 1.37" x 24tpi threaded bottom brackets.
- The one-piece design also increases stiffness and strength at this important area while carefully designed pockets help reduce the weight.
- Custom seat and chainstay tubing help improve crank and heel clearance.
- Compact CNC machined dropouts and custom gear hanger keep the frame looking clean and stylish.
- Weld angles and contact areas at the dropouts have also been improved to help maximise strength.
- Dedicated 4-Bolt brake mounts spaced at 89mm, centre to centre across the mounts (maximum rim width approx 38mm, unless Tensile Offset Mounts are used).
- Supplied with a pre-installed FSA Orbit Equipe sealed bearing headset - a proven model found on the majority of Inspired's complete bikes!
- Inspired's forks are renowned for being some of the toughest forks on the market.
- Ultra thick one-piece CNC machined aluminium steerer tube (6mm wall thickness - 205mm length), this fork overcomes many issues previously seen when using a bonded 2 piece steerer.
- Steerer is extra thick at the bottom, more so than other forks which appear to be the same, ensuring maximum stiffness and strength.
- The steerer tube has a radius at the bottom to prevent cracking, therefore some models of crown race may not appear to seat fully. This is normal and does not cause any problems.
- Custom designed and manufactured disc brake mount (at the International Standard position) is extra long to prevent cracking at the top where it joins the leg.
- Large diameter fork legs provide additional strength.
- Unique, smooth welded and machined dropouts look classy and maximise durability without adding excessive weight.
- Advanced one piece top-cap/nut replaces the standard press-fit star fangled nut, top-cap and bolt featured on other forks.
- Dropout size 9.5mm to fit all standard 9mm axles (Hope, Try-All, Shimano, Chris King, V!Z, Onza, etc.). Echo hubs use a 10mm axle and will need modification.
- Available in Gloss Bright Green with high quality graphics that are lacquered over.
- May not be supplied with hose clips.

- Frame, fork and headset: 3.080kg

Geometry (When measured with 410mm x 30mm fork, sold separately):
- Wheelbase: 1040mm
- Chainstay: 385mm
- BB Height: +20mm
- Head Angle: 73
- Seat Post Diameter: 27.2mm
- Seat Tube Length (centre to top): 270mm

This may be a stupid question but does this frame kit involve everything required for a working bike

Hey there, is there a disk brake compatible option?

Hi - Not in this model. Regards.


I'm confused....does this have a rear disc mount or Not?

Reply from TartyBikes on 12/10/2017

Hi Dan - This model of the Hex is 4-bolt only. Only the more recent model of Hex has a rear disc mount. Thanks, Mark


Hi there, I've just bought this frame kit and very happy with. Could you recommend a decent chain tensioner to this frame, please? I'm not really sure which one would be perfectly fit from ur webshop Cheers

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/11/2017

Hi Louis - The Trialtech Sport Single Sided Sprung Tensioner would be ideal. It's similar to the tensioner fitted to the complete bikes, and works well with it. Thanks, Mark


Hi Folks, Any idea when these may be landing? G

Hi Greg - This model has now been discontinued so unless Inspired happen to find more in their warehouse we don't see us receiving more, sorry. The updated Hex frame kit should be out in early 2018, although it will be more expensive than this kit. Thanks, Mark
