Product code: 12941


On order

Inspired Arcade 2018 Frame Kit

No stock due until April 2019.

1 upgrade available

Hope Pro 4 Hubs Upgrade - Can Be Added At Checkout

- The newest version of one of the most eagerly anticipated trials frames on the market is now available!
- As tested and developed by TartyBikes team rider Ali C!
- Slight tweaks and refinements improve the frame kit, building on the success of the previous generations!
- New for 2017, the Arcade features an integrated seat clamp enclosed within the seat stay. Important note: a metal 27.2mm seat post (no shim) of minimum insertion depth 100mm must be used with this frame to preserve the warranty.
- An additional change for late 2016/2017 is the switch to a 142mm long integrated head tube which simplifies assembly, reduces weight but doesn't sacrifice strength!
- Externally butted 'Euro' (threaded) bottom bracket shell saves weight and looks cool!
- International Standard disc brake mount on the fork, and +20mm on the frame means the same sized rotors can be used front and rear with the same caliper/adaptor.
- The top of the rear disc mount is positioned on top of a gusset to spread the braking force, and a reinforcing tube below supports the rear triangle yet further. Please Note: Using a rotor larger than 185mm will invalidate the frame's warranty.
- Very neat, purpose made micro chain tugs take care of chain tension (Please note: Tugs are supplied with the correct bolt length for use with 22:15 gear ratio. For use with 22:16, longer bolts may be required).
- Revised seat stay-to-seat tube joining method and added support bridge between the seatstays increases stiffness and strength of this high-stress area.
- The middle of the frame is further stiffened by a a revised chain stay-to-bottom bracket joint, featuring an extra support gusset.
- Threaded top cap design allows the hose to be routed through the steerer if required.
- Tapered fork dropouts and axle locate the front wheel in exactly the same place every time.
- 15mm through-axle is compatible with any 15mm through-axle front hub. The Hope Pro 2 or 4 can be adapted for this purpose with 15mm adaptors, or if you use a standard 10mm, 9mm or quick release axle hub, you can use the Inspired Arcade Fork Adaptors.
- Mirror Red finish is complimented by understated Inspired Arcade graphics.
- Available as a frame kit with headset, chain tugs, fork, fork top cap and 15mm through axle. Hope Hub Upgrade available at checkout.

Hi, Can you confirm if you can run a 16t cog on this model? Cheers James

Hi James - thanks for your question. Yes, the dropouts have been made slightly longer so you can use a 16t sprocket more easily than the previous model. You would just need to use 2mm longer bolts in your chain tugs! Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

About the Hubs

Hi Tarty :) Want to ask you about my hubs:) I have a Fourplay Pro 2013 with Trialtech hubs already. But now I want to change my old FP to this beauty - Arcade:) And the question - Can my Trialtech hubs works with Arcade frame or I must to change the hubs too because Arcade frame has an Axle bolts system? Thank,you:)

Hi there - thanks for your question. The rear hub would fit fine, but the front wouldn't work with the current system. Fortunately, Inspired make an adaptor for this exact purpose! If you use these with your current hub and not use the supplied axle at all, your current hub will work fine: http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/product.php?product_id=12292 Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

could I run this crank set on the arcade with a 22t sprocket? https://www.sram.com/truvativ/products/descendant-carbon-crankset

Reply from TartyBikes on 05/10/2016

Hi Jack - Unfortunately, we don't have any experience with this crankset and finding useful information is difficult, so we couldn't say for sure, sorry. Thanks, Mark

Peter Norman

I need to cut my steerer tube on the fork. What size tap will I need to add more threads for the screw on top cap?

Posted by Peter Norman on 06/11/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/11/2016

Hi Peter - The Arcade top cap is M25 x 1.5. Thanks, Mark


Rear dropout size? What is the smallest axle size possible?

Posted by brandon on 08/12/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 09/12/2016

Hi Brandon - The rear dropouts are 10mm, and spaced at 135mm. We recommend using a 10mm axle, but if you have a smaller axle size you could potentially create some spacers/adaptors for it to fit in the dropouts properly too. Thanks, Mark

Hello How is mirror red constructed? Nickel chrome plating? Hard Chrome Plating?

Posted by Hiroyuki KISHI on 23/02/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 23/02/2017

Hello - The frame is chrome plated, then sprayed with a translucent red lacquer. Thanks, Mark

Parker Jamison

I have the 2014 brakeless arcade frame and I was wondering if it would be possible to weld brakemounts to the rear end. Would this increase the possibilty of the frame breaking? Thanks.

Posted by Parker Jamison on 14/01/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/01/2018

Hi Parker - It might be possible to weld brake mounts to the frame, but ideally you'd also need to weld a brace to the frame too. If you look at the Arcade frames with mounts, there's a bracing tube inside the rear triangle and you'd need that at least to help support the frame otherwise it isn't likely to last long. Thanks, Mark

Franz Neumayr

Hello, Is it possible to install the parts of my Inspired Flow Plus in this frame?

Posted by Franz Neumayr on 13/05/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 14/05/2018

Hi Franz - Most parts should transfer over fine, but your front hub won't be compatible with the Arcade forks so you'd either need to change your front hub or use your Flow Plus forks in the Arcade frame. Thanks, Mark
