NOTE (FORK): This is the same frame used for the CHANGE 811 folding rugged hybrid (with carbon fork) and CHANGE 812 folding mountain bike (with shock fork). Fork purchased separately. Either type of fork is appropriate for this frame, as long as it is a tapered steerer, and a “mountain bike” style fork.

First, if you’re building a bike to go off the beaten path, you’ll want to start with something light, yet rugged. Unlike other folding bike frames, this light (5.5 lb) double-butted aluminum hardtail frame has passed the ISO 4210 destruction test suite for mountain bikes. And yet, unlike other MTBs, a bike built on the CHANGE 833 frame can travel everywhere in your car trunk, free from weather, road grit, and curious hands. After your day on the mountain, you can enjoy your dinner and trail stories in peace, knowing that it’s safely tucked away from view in your trunk.
