10/30/23 - We will be getting one last batch of these frames in and then that will be it, so if you want one its best to pre-order here or call/email us to secure one. Most of the incoming order has been selling so there will only be about 5-8 frames available.

The Hard Time XL is stretched 3" longer then the OG 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 and rear on an XL.
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.
