Tonic Fab is a small bike company from Portland, Oregon that specialize in dialed bikes. Recently I got my hands on a Howie frame, however, Landon sent through some new information on the Howie to stoke you guys out even more. Now this is dialed folks!Click here for info on the new Howie...The New Howie
The new Howie looks nearly identical to the old model. So what’s different? Changes
The new Howie with our Deep Coat finish weighs 4.8lbs / 2.18 kg.
14.56” / 370mm
$625 USD including bottom bracket.
Tonic Mid 90 bottom bracket.
The Mid 90 is simply a BMX mid bottom bracket scaled-up for use with a mountain bike chain line. Frames will ship with this BB installed.
The Mid 90 has some real advantages:
•Ease of setting up the bike with 3 piece cranks for a mountain bike chain line. The only spacer is the non-drive side bearing cap. The sprocket adapter sits right against the drive side bearing.
•Uses the same common and durable bearings as a regular Mid BB.
•90 is a very high number, so you know it’s good.
