Cool crisp morning are perfect for a Dawn Patrol ride and pleasant temps call you out in the afternoons. So there really is no better time for a new frame to build up just the way you like. Here are some of the keys features of our 396 TR. Happy riding!
The GFGR Geometry of the 396 TR blends neutral handling with long front centers. Our seat tubes have lay back so you can run a dropper post and not need to get way back behind the saddle when the going gets rowdy! The 396 TR’sGFGR Geometry achieves your perfect riding position with one of the great dropper post offerings currently available with zero setback.
Evening riding with a 30.9 rigid post with zero set back has added benefit with the laid back seat tube design. The position allows the seat post to flex more and improve comfort when things get bumpy.
Combined with the rear triangle design of our frames, these features make for a more compliant ride that transcends the nature of the frame’s material. You will be immediately pleased by the quick acceleration and awesome tracking of our frame as you rip down your favorite single track. The rider first approach of the frames GFGR Geometry will place you in a comfortable ready for for fun position.

First up is Jay Clark Founder and Designer at Prescott Cyclery.
I love to ride bicycles. Cycling for me is a fantastic way to be outside, meet people and enjoy our world. My love for cycling began at an early age and I have been fortunate enough to turn my passion for all things bicycle related into a living designing bicycles and products for them.
I graduated from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1994. And followed my passion for riding, racing and all things bicycles to Syncros and the mountains of British Columbia. It was a magical time living by the ocean in Vancouver and riding high into the mountains that surround the city. On the road or on the dirt Vancouver has every kind of adventure one can imagine riding a bicycle on. Thus began my design career in the Cycling Industry.
Over the next 18 years I worked for great companies and learned the craft of bicycle design and engineering from the very best minds in the industry. I learned component design and the importance of product testing at Syncros. At Serotta I was immersed into the holistic approach to “the rider comes first” bicycle fitting and how it drives a frame’s design and geometry. I gained invaluable experience at Cannondale in advanced frame engineering, development and reinforced my strong belief in testing.
I set out on my own 4 years ago and have built a successful consulting business, continuing to build on my skills as a design engineer by working with companies inside and outside of the cycling industry. I have learned the industry best practices from leading design firms and automotive accessory companies. It has been my goal from the start to parley my development experience into product of my own design for my own company.
Starting Prescott Cyclery has been a career long dream. After realizing the product goals for many others over my career it is exciting to own my own brand. I am pouring all that I have learned into the creation of our products. Designing products for people to interact with is fun. As a bicycle designer you get to take interactive design to a new level, developing a product that is an extension of the end user. It is exciting to me that they interact with the product on a very direct level, and that it helps them to realize their goals and aspirations. This is why I do what I do. It is rewarding for me to create awesome product that helps people realize their own goals.
I know this is not very exciting. However as we sell more of our product the questions will come up. So for clarity and peace of mind when making your purchase here is our return policy.
