Pipedream's D.O.G. or, Drop Optimized Geometry, is their philosophy for bike design. Pipedream claim that when things get exciting, their bikes will keep riders on track due to their long, low, and slack geometry they've been utilizing for some time now. There is a 65-degree head angle, 77.5-degree seat angle, and 465mm of reach in a size Long.Steel
A custom tubeset is used to build the Sirius. The tubing is designed specifically for the frame so that the custom butt profiles are optimized for strength and performance, negating the need for external reinforcement, according to Pipedream. This delivers the clean aesthetic Pipedream are known for and enhances the properties of the tubing with no gussets.
There is also a rigid fork on the way, especially designed for the Sirius to turn it into an ultimate bikepacking and adventure bike. There are also flat-mount dropouts coming so riders can install drop bars, if they desire.
The bike is available in three sizes - longish, long, and longer. Colors available are Silver Fox, Starry Night, and Vintage Green.
The Sirius sells for £649.00 and more information can be found at pipedreamcycles.com
