Tumbleweed Bicycle Co. announces its second bicycle model, the Stargazer, a nimble and balanced drop bar mountain touring bike designed for loaded trail riding.
The Stargazer is at home on trails, singletrack and gravel roads whether unladen or with racks and bags on an adventure. It is a direct descendant of Tumbleweed’s first bike model, the Prospector, and shares much of the same tubing and mountain bike geometry, with a shorter reach to accommodate drop handlebars, and a lighter weight overall package.
The Stargazer redefines expectations of what a drop bar mountain bike can be. “At Tumbleweed, we produce best in class off road touring products. We designed the Stargazer to be a really fun, confidence inspiring bike that covers a wide range of terrain and is optimized for bikepacking and off road touring,” shared Daniel Molloy, founder of Tumbleweed and designer of the Stargazer.
The Stargazer is available in two colors: starry night and bone. Frameset including frame, fork, seat clamp, and front/rear thru-axles will retail for $1350 and complete bikes featuring DT 350 hubs, SRAM Rival road shifters mated to a GX Eagle drivetrain and a 125mm PNW dropper post start at $3875 with upgrade options available. A very limited number of complete bike builds will be offered for the first run of Stargazers. The presale for the Stargazer begins Tuesday, August 17, 2021, at 9am MT at www.tumbleweed.cc. Delivery of frames is anticipated December 2021, with complete bikes built to order and delivered in the order that deposits are placed.
- The Stargazer features a high-end fully heat treated multi-butted Chromoly steel tubeset with integrated gussets at the headtube, and a CNC machined chainstay yoke
- Clearance for 29x2.5” or 27.5x3.0” tires
- Front and rear rack mounts, triple bottle/cage bosses and fender mounts on the frame and fork
- Internal dropper post and dynamo wire routing
- 148/110mm boost thru axle spacing with replaceable derailleur hanger

About Tumbleweed Bicycle Co.
Tumbleweed Bicycle Company is a specialty bicycle company started by Daniel Molloy, a long-time bicycle mechanic who loves to explore remote places on the dirt with his bikes. Tumbleweed offers best in class bicycles and parts optimized for bikepacking and mountain bike touring. Our products have been ridden hard for thousands of miles in harsh conditions to continuously improve them and ensure that our customers can ride with full confidence anywhere in the world. Our initial bike, the Prospector, was born out of a frustration with off-the-shelf bikes that compromise function to follow industry trends or hit a price point. Since then, our portfolio of products has grown but the quality and attention to detail has stayed the same, resulting in a line of products that are of the highest quality and built to explore.
