The affordable Rose Bonero alloy hardtail brings back the fun of mountain biking

Posted on April 13, 2022 by Cory Benson

Rose’s new Bonero alloy hardtail could be the perfect kind of bike to get you back into mountain biking. This is a versatile, no-frills mountain bike with modern geometry and a mid-travel fork that sells complete for less than most of the fancy wheelsets we talk about these days.

Whether new riders exploring new singletrack or long-time mountain bikers looking to spice up their off-road riding with a bit of rugged adventure, the Bonero might just be the ticket….

OK, let’s get this sorted out first… Rose has made one of the funniest “new bike” story videos we’ve seen. The savior of pure riding is a story of misfortune and intrigue of the Old West, good versus evil, discovery of adventure in German, Spanish and some English (with captions that you can render with YouTube’s little CC logo).

Watch it now. We will wait for you here. And stick around for the credits to get the bike’s full specs.

OK, if you haven’t had the patience to sit through the credits, I’ll hit the highlights: Slack up front, steep in the seat tube, “LOOONG” reach and 140mm forks ready for the trail for 29 inches and 130 mm for the smaller 27.5 bikes. The new Rose Bonero promises off-road fun and anywhere-riding capability in an affordable aluminum hardtail mountain bike rig with prices ranging from $1500-$2200.

Technical details

The Rose Bonero is a simple TIG welded aluminum frame with 2.6 inch tire clearance and plenty of fine details.

It gets a 1.5″ tapered internal headset, internal cable routing that goes outward around the front of the BB, but fully internal 31.6mm stealth dropper routing, a BSA threaded bottom bracket, ISCG tabs, Boost thru-axles, universal derailleur hanger, integrated downtube and chainstay protectors, and an interesting mix of mounting points.

The hardtail only gets one set of bottle cage bosses on the downtube, but that’s a 3-pack Anything mount (nothing on the seat tube to allow for long droppers) but adds a set of bolts just below the top tube to mount a tool/rack accessory tube and rear rack/fender mounts.

A relaxed 65° head angle lets the Bonero hardtail descend with confidence, while the steep 76° seat angle will help you get back up the hill quickly.
