The "Hard Time" Frame XL


9/28/22 - 2 Frames on the way that are available for pre-order. These usually sell out within a few days when they are in stock

The Hard Time XL is "stretched 3" longer then the standard HT. This frame was designed for riders 5' 11" and taller....

The Hard Time is set up to run 26" front and rear wheels up to 4" wide. We prefer to run a 29er up front. XL will also fit a 29 in rear
1.5" Tubing on the frame, 1 1/8" Head tube, American Bottom Bracket.

In 2009, when I built the "Hard Time" frame, I was looking to create something simple with clean flowing lines. However, I had one important requirement, the frame had to be as low to the ground as possible. The finished product was a hit with the public and more and more people became interested in purchasing the "Hard Time". Though we made a few small production runs, we were never able to keep up with the demand.

I have been building and selling Ruff Cycles products since I opened The Cruiser Shop, so I know firsthand how high the Ruff quality is. Pero and the Ruff crew have been awesome to work with, so it was an easy choice for me to have them manufacture my frame. I am proud to announce that The Cruiser Shop will be the exclusive source in the United States to purchase a "Hard Time" frame.
