PURE, UNDILUTED GOOD TIMES


The Starling Cycles Roost. The bike that Hardtail Party said “corners like a dream!“.

A handbuilt, zingy stainless steel frame makes light work of rough and rowdy descents whilst mullet wheels bring that perfect balance of flick-knife and magnum. With room for a 120mm to 160mm fork you’ve got plenty of options to custom-build your own perfect setup.

It’s not a spindly XC whippet, it’s not a sickly ‘ardcore ‘ardtail. It’s a ride-wherever, ride-whatever, tough-as-nails stainless do-it-all that’s built to take on whatever you can throw it at.

And, of course, it’s built with beautiful stainless steel for that super shiny, head-turning raw metal style.

The Roost is in stock and ready to ship straight-away. No need to wait for your frame to be manufactured.

Frame Sizing

  • If you're on the cusp between the recommended height range of two sizes, the absolute best thing is to try to ride them both. At a minimum, check the stack/reach measurements on your current bike and compare it to the new model you are looking at to get an idea of a fit you are already comfortable with. If riding the bike is not an option, consider the following:

Personal Preference

A larger size frame will be more stable, and will give you more room to move without upsetting the weight-balance of the bike. The larger size will put the front wheel further in front of you, which gives the feeling of security and conversely, it will require more significant body movements when you WANT to shift the weight-bias of the bike. Think hard about your riding style and how active/intuitive you want it to be vs stable and speedy. You'll need to work a bit harder to muscle the larger bike around.

Body Dimension

Not all bodies at a given height are the same. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso than the average person your height, that may push you towards the smaller of the recommended sizes. If you're all torso and arms, most likely you'll want to size up.
