Stif Morf Steel Hardtail Bike XT Build – Meteorite
The Morf hardtail has been designed and developed in partnership with frame designer Brant Richards, and our wealth of experience gathered over the past 30 years. Made from bespoke 4130 chromoly tubing treated with electronically fused anti rust protection, and tuned to offer compliance in areas such as the flattened seat stays and top tube, without comprising stiffness, the Morf is the perfect do it all hardtail for any conditions.
With extensive testing over the past couple of years the Morf has lent itself to any situation from big mountain days out in the Lake District or Scotland right through to achieving podiums in the Welsh Gravity Enduro series and Red Kite Enduro series, and a fantastic win at the 2015 ‘Ard Rock Enduro Sport.
Featuring a 65 degree head angle and long top tube, and a steep 73.5 degree seat tube the Morf combines brilliant climbing characteristics with confidence inspiring descending capabilities, begging you ride it faster and harder than any hardtail before.
Designed in partnership with legendary frame designer Brant Richards

I’ve had the bike for nearly three weeks and I have to say it’s been
utterly brilliant. I’ve ridden it at trail centres, some “wilderness
“rides and also a few night time blasts after work. It climbs well and
seems to fly around tight switchbacks that I often found a struggle on
my full suspension bike, I’m sure some is incompetence on my part but
it does seem to forgive my technique! When it comes to descending the
short back end and slack front end gives plenty of confidence to pick
lines that I never use to on my Cove Stiffee. It is also very easy to
live with on longer rides out into the Dales as, although a hard tail,
my arse doesn’t take the pounding that it did on an aluminium frame.
I’ve always taken all the advertising and geometry tinkering that is
associated with bikes and new fads with a massive pinch of salt but I’m really enjoying this bike.
I have seen on some of the threads on singletrackworld a bit of
negativity but as usual it seems that few, if any, have seen one in
the flesh let alone ridden one. I’m sure they all know more than me
but I feel the frame looks great and the spec was an excellent deal
that clearly had a lot of thought put into it. Interestingly I have
been stopped on the trail and in the carparks with people quizzing me
about the bike and the feedback has been universally positive. I am
currently enjoying the exclusivity of owning a Morf, but I hope that
you do sell many more as I think in my humble opinion that it is a cracker.
