Introducing the Space Horse Disc

Folks,
Today we are beyond stoked to bring you a project over three years in the making, the Space Horse Disc!

Yep, it's finally a reality.

We've taken our beloved Space Horse platform and improved the heck out of it with the addition of the all-weather stopping power of disc brakes, a new parts spec, an expanded size run, and 650b wheel sizes in the 46cm and new 43cm size.

While we are over the moon about them all, it's the 43 and 46 versions that have truly captured our hearts. Let us explain.

We are lucky enough to have developed a strong following among smaller riders, our 46cm sizes have a tendency to fly off dealers floors, but we knew we could do better. The top tube length was not as short as we would like, as it was constrained by the use of 700c wheels. With the brand's growth has come additional capacities and capabilites and we were eager to put those to use in developing the follow up to our flagship model.

We are proud to announce that there are now seven sizes available, 43cm, 46cm, 49cm, 52cm, 55cm, 58cm, 61cm. The 49-61cm fit a 700c x 42 tire, while the 43 and 46cm bikes will take a 650b x 45. Most exciting of all the 43cm bike has a 495mm top tube length to fit riders in the five foot range and the 46cm has a top tube length of 515mm, which is a half centimeter shorter than the canti version. Other updates include a new vertical dropout with a replaceable derailleur hanger, and a Shimano 105 parts spec.

As often happens, the parts spec in the photos is mostly, though not totally accurate. Noticeably the wheels on the production bikes are upgraded, please check out the bike page for complete spec of the production models.

You just HAD to release a disc space horse with 105 after I just purchased a traditional SH in May. Arghhhhh!!!!! I love it though…

Looks like a great candidate for a 650b conversion. How wide of 650b tires could this frame fit with fenders?

My Space Horse is heavy enough, thank you very much. But, good to see braking addressed, which was an issue until I upgraded to Shorty Ultimates.

Why We Discontinue Models…

This is a topic that's been on our mind lately as we've recently heard from a number of Space Horse and Nature Boy rim brake owners who are bummed to see their beloved model leave our lineup.
