The Starling Cycles Murmur Factory Edition is our 29” mountain bike frame, hand built in Reynolds 853 steel. It has 29” wheels with 140mm rear travel and room for disc rotors up to 200mm and 2.5” tyre clearance. It is built for metric rear shocks and 148 x 12mm Boost rear hub spacings.
The new ‘Factory’ frame has been designed at home in the UK and hand built in Taiwan by ORA, the world’s very best steel mountain bike frame manufacturing facility.
You probably know Leo Sandler already. He’s a Kiwi, living in the UK and is an absolute animal on two-wheels. If anyone can put the Murmur Factory through its paces… Leo is the man for the job!
We lent Leo the Murmur Factory and sent him to South Wales to give it a shred. The weather was up against him and a few the jumps at Black Mountains were closed (damn UK winter weather!) but he still managed to have a big day of shredding on the bike. Thanks Leo, we’re stoked to see you ride the Starling!
The Murmur Factory is available now. Click here for more details.
You can buy a Murmur Factory direct from Starling Cycles, with prices for a complete (but unassembled) bike from £3600. Frame and shock prices start at £1850.
