Stargazer frames are in stock now, lead time for builds is approximately 4 weeks. We will be receiving a restock on all sizes and colors at the end of January 2023.
The Stargazer is a nimble and balanced drop bar mountain touring bike designed for loaded trail riding. It's at home on trails, singletrack and gravel roads whether unladen or with racks and bags on an adventure. The Stargazer 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. Our standard build combines a 12 speed SRAM Eagle wide range 10-52 tooth cassette and derailleur with SRAM Rival road shifters via a Ratio Technology 1x12 Wide Upgrade Kit, and the left shifter is modified to control actuation of the dropper seatpost.
The Stargazer is built to be a fun, confidence inspiring bike that covers a wide range of terrain and is optimized for bikepacking and off road touring.
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 with clearance for 29x2.5” or 27.5x3.0” tires.

The Stargazer blends the drop bar and mountain bike experience and takes the best parts of both. It combines the comfortable riding position of a gravel bike with the tire clearance and gear range of a mountain bike. It is great for people who want a versatile off road bike that can swap 27.5+ and 29” wheels, ride single track or dirt roads and take on bikepacking trips.
Heat treated multi-butted Chromoly steel tubeset makes for a very strong and smooth riding frame. It is triple and quad butted oversized tubing and features internal gussets integrated at the headtube. All of this is done to create a strong frame at a reasonable weight.
