The mission of the Rhyme Comp Carbon 6Fattie/29 is pretty simple—give female riders the best performing trail bike out there. And to make sure of it, we gave it our proprietary trail shock tune for women, Women's Rx Tune, that's tailored to give you the best suspension performance possible.

To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine.

It features our FACT 9m carbon fibre for the bulk of the construction in order to provide an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff frame. The carbon moulding process also allowed us to revolutionize how you carry your trail essentials with the revolutionary SWAT™ Door found at the down tube. This compartment will fit a tube, a tool, and pump without rattling or compromising the structural integrity of the frame.

And when you factor in a build spec that has SRAM's 11-speed GX one-by shifting, powerful Guide R hydraulic disc brakes, a RockShox Revelation RC fork with 150mm of travel, and a whole host of women's-specific components, from the saddle to the custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT shock, you have a bike that will have you never looking back—unless it's to see the girls eating your dust.

FACT 9m carbon fibre Trail Chassis with Rhyme FSR M5 alloy rear end blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while fully enclosed cable routing and an integrated SWAT™ Door create exceptional handling and zero-hassle storage.

RockShox Revelation RC fork features a 15x110mm Maxle Ultimate thru-axle, a Solo Air™ spring, and 150mm of plush travel to take on big hits and bumpy terrain with supreme speed and efficiency.

SRAM's 11-speed GX groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.

      Finance is available on a large range of bikes, clothing and accessories in all our stores and via mail order (via email or telephone) with a minimum transaction value of £350bike finance. A minimum of a 10% deposit is required for all purchases on finance.

      0% Finance is available on all full priced items, as well as a hand picked selection of discounted models. If you are interested in a discounted bike, but are unsure whether or not it can be purchased with 0% finance, just ask. 

      For the remainder of the discounted models, we can still provide finance, but there will be an interest charged. For further details on our bike finance charges, see below.

      For full priced items, finance options are available in 6, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36 or 48 month payment periods.

      • 0% interest finance is available on terms up to 12 months.
      • 4.9% interest finance is available on terms of 18 or 24 months.
      • 9.9% interest finance is available on terms of 36 months.
      • 15.9% interest finance is available on terms of 48 months.

      You can include as many parts, accessories, clothing etc as you wish as part of the purchase. The finance application will simply be calculated on the total purchase price for all items. 

      Once the finance agreement has been accepted by V12 Retail Finance, we cannot modify the value of the loan without re-applying for finance.

      Cyclescheme is the UK's number one provider of tax-free bikes for the Government's Cycle to Work initiative. It's a brilliant programme where everyone wins - employees make big savings on new bikes, employers get a healthier workforce and save money too! Cyclescheme has a great track record in helping businesses of all sizes to set up and run successful Cycle to Work schemes.

      How Much Can I Save Via Cyclescheme

      Check out our personalised savings calculator!

      Cyclescheme Savings Calculator

      The cycle to work scheme is a government initiative which allows employees to hire bicycles tax free from their employers using salary sacrifice. As the payments into the scheme are made before tax and national insurance are calculated this leads to potential savings of up to 42%

      Typical example for an employee earning £18,000 pa

      Please Note: Savings will differ for each individual

      If your employer is a member of a cycle to work scheme (Cyclescheme, Bike2Work etc) all you need to do is visit one of our stores, or contact us to ask us for a quotation. Quotes can be provided for bicycles and bicycle accessories only. Once we have issued you a quotation, simply forward it to your employer for approval. Once you have been approved, you'll soon receive a certificate which can be redeemed for your new bike. The process usually takes between 2 - 3 weeks

      Cyclescheme is available for mail order however a delivery charge of £29 will apply. This charge cannot be include in your quotation and must be paid for prior delivery. 

      Please note: Unless your employer has a consumer credit licence the maximum spend limit for a bicycle & accessories is £1000. You can purchase bikes over £1000 and pay the difference, however legal ownership of the bike will remain the employers regardless of how much extra has been paid.

      For any questions regarding Cyclescheme please contact us

      For more detailed information regarding the scheme please visit www.cyclescheme.co.uk
