Alchemy Bicycles Introduces Mixed Wheel Model nine7five

Mixed Wheels Go Mainstream

July 19, 2019 -Denver, Colorado — 

Alchemy Bicycles introduces today one of the first production mixed-wheel full-suspension bikes, the Alchemynine7five.“

Racers have been winning World Cups and Enduro World Series event on mixed wheel-size bikes, so there is no doubt there are performance advantages,” says Alchemy engineer Matt Maczuzak. “And it’s not just the quicker handling of the smaller rear wheel. The acceleration out of corners was the most noticeable feature.”

Alchemy will have four different price-point completes, with the GX Eagle-equipped models starting at $5399. All models will use Industry 9Enduro S wheels and feature a specially designed link to accommodate the smaller rear wheel.“We knew this was going to be a purpose-build race bike for Cody Kelley,” continues Maczuzak, referencing Alchemy EWS racer Cody Kelley.” And he proved we hit the target by winning his first event on the bike. The nine7fivehas a degree slacker head angle than our normal 29er model and with the smaller rear wheel positions the rider’s body further back on the bike. It’s perfect for hitting tracks at speed and feeling comfortable doing it.”
