Sold out

  • Tough, agile, nimble steel street trials frame!
  • As ridden by Ben Travis and John Langlois.
- The newest version of one of the most eagerly anticipated trials frames on the market is now available!
- As ridden by TartyBikes team rider Ben Travis and Inspired pro team rider John Langlois!
- Slight tweaks and refinements improve the frame kit, building on the success of the previous generations!
- Neat, integrated seat clamp enclosed within the seat stay provides dependable positioning of your seat without a weight penalty. 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.
- 142mm long integrated head tube simplifies assembly and 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 lengths for use with 22:15 or 22:16 gear ratios).
- 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.
- Dark Chrome or Satin Bronze 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.

Questions

Matt

Can you explain the geometry difference between the arcade and fourplay frames? Is one better than the other for a certain style of riding, and is one better for smaller riders than the other? Thanks.

Hi Matt!
There are a few key difference between the Arcade and the Fourplay. The steeper head angle and higher BB of the Arcade mean that it's a little more at home doing BMX-style moves (if you watch Inspired team rider John Langlois you'll see what we mean!), but is still capable for doing trials moves (our own team rider Ben Travis would be a good example of this) as the short rear end helps make it fairly easy on the back wheel too. Overall it's a really responsive frame that's a fairly good all rounder.
The steeper head angle of the Arcade means that the front triangle of the bike feels a little longer, hence the reach of the Arcade being 682mm compared to 670mm for the Fourplay. This is slightly skewed though as the Arcade has a taller head tube which will impact that measurement by a few mm.
The Fourplay is a little more towards the trials end of things, with it also having a nice short rear triangle but a slightly slacker head angle. The Fourplay is still definitely capable of doing tricks though (as another example, Fabio Wibmer has ridden the Fourplay for some time and can do some great moves on his, as can Duncan Shaw), and the shorter front triangle and lower BB make it feel very much 'under' you when you ride it. This feeling means the bike feels nice and agile, so for doing more trick-based riding you can position the bike where you want it quite easily. The Fourplay being the lighter of the two framekits helps with this too.
This lightness is achieved through the Fourplay being aluminium rather than steel like the Arcade. It means the Fourplay is quite light and stiff, whereas the Arcade has the slightly more supple ride feel associated with steel tubing. The Arcade frame and fork are a little tougher than the Fourplay in terms of impacts/abuse, but both of them are nice and strong so strength needn't be a concern.
As the reach of the Fourplay is a little shorter it may suit smaller riders, but there isn't a huge amount in it so you shouldn't necessarily be put off the Arcade either. You can always dial in the feel of the front end of the bike through your bar, stem and spacer choice.
Hopefully this helps, but if you have any more questions please ask.

I'm looking to replace my green flow plus with this frame. Are the fork axle adaptors for this kind of upgrade included with the frame kit or do I have to buy them seperately? Cheers Sebastian

Hi Sebastian!
The fork adaptors are sold separately, as the kit is supplied with the 15mm through axle as standard.
You can find the adaptors here.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

Hello there! Im currently riding a red fourplay (2018) with hope evo 4 hubs and gx eagle cranks. Will i need to buy some adaptors or can i just fit them like that? What would i have to need to buy for everything to fit? Thanks in advance!

Hi Raphael!
You should hopefully be able to just transfer everything from your Fourplay across to the Arcade. The hub axle types are the between the two, the brake mounts are the same and the GX cranks fit the Arcade fine, so we can't see you having any issues.
If you have any more questions, please ask!

Hey Tarty, I currently ride an Ozonys Styl V3. Is it possible to transfer all the parts to the Arcade Frameset? (Especially wheels and crankset)

Posted by Flo

Hi Flo!
You'll need to use the Arcade Fork Axle Adaptors to fit your front wheel, but all the other parts of your bike should transfer over fine as far as we're aware.
If you have any more questions, please ask.

Hi, I plan to use Echo TR disc brake on the front and Magura MT5 on rear with this frame. Both on 180 mm discs. What kind of brake adapters would I need for that? Cheers! Maciej Maj

Hi Maciej!
As the Arcade frame uses a +20mm rear disc mount, you'll need to use the same size adaptor front and rear for your bike. If you're using 180mm rotors, you'll need to use a Front 180mm Adaptor for both brakes.
Either the QM12 Magura Adaptors or the Adaptor F Hope Adaptors would work perfectly.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
