Carolina Master Cyclocross Frame


The Connemara

MSRP $1799

Over the last few years as we continued to expand, we had a lot of demand for a soft tail racing option. Patiently, we weighed our options in terms of development and how we could create the best experience for the customer using the latest technology and the highest quality control. This meant a lot of time on the development table and many attempts that did not meet our high expectations. we played with 26, 27.5 and 29ers looking for what gave the best experience for the refined rider. Finally, after two years of work, we arrived on the Connemara. Our first entry into the world of dual suspension designed not only to give you speed and stability but also leverage all the design qualities of the 29er.

The Connemara was designed to not only be a trail bike, but also flexible enough to be a single platform answer to your cross country and endro needs. We paid close attention to maintaining an overall low weight to the frame while at the same time pressing forward with precision ride characteristis such as a response front end featuring a 72 degree head tube and a 73 degree seat tube.

A solid descender and trail bike, the Connemara is also a great climber. Use of the industry standard of 142 x 12 for rear spacing allowed us to create a solid climber while at the same time not lock down users into some sort of proprietary set up. Our rear end also allows for legacy 135 x 9 spacing for those who wish to upgrade over time and will feature a future 15mm standard as well which will be available as an options kit. We give you the option likewise of choosing your own rear suspension system or going with our stock Caen Crek DB Air solution. This allows you to decide whether to create a near hard tail ride feel, or take advantage of all 4" of travel.

The frame is available as a frame set or complete bike inclusive of build packages from Sram. All frames feature a 1.125 to 1.5 steer tube and BSA bottom bracket. Sizes available are 15", 17",19" and 21". When sizing, pay close attention to the top tube length and head tubes as they are the key factors in any frame. Do note the Connemara tends to size "larger" so add another half inch in terms of size when you interpret the numbers. To inquire on purchasing a frame or completely built package, contact us at info@irishcycles.com. We will direct you to a local shop that can provide you assistance or, if you're in the Carolinas, work to meet you in person. In those cases we cannot do either, we will work thru extensive phone consulatation to make sure your fit and requirements are met. Please note: all frame or complete bicycle purchases will require a phone consultation in order to ensure the right fit and specifications for you.
