Kink Williams Frame Description

The Williams frame is Nathan Williams’ first signature frame from Kink and features modern street geometry while retaining a classic look. 

But still, the frame features several subtle details that should not be overlooked. The steeper 75.5° headtube is responsive, and the short 12.75” chainstay length makes the frame nimble without compromising on tire clearance; fitting up to 2.5” tires. 

The double butted toptube and downtube with gussets on both ensure plenty of strength in the front end while the chainstay and seatstay bridge designs allot for generous tyre clearance while adding as much stiffness as possible. 

Nathan’s frame of course comes standard with integrated seat post clamp, integrated chain tensioners to keep the wheel in place and removable brake mounts. 

Additional details like the custom seat stay bridge badge inlay and interior dropout knurling round out both the good looks and serious functionality of the Williams frame.

A: Top Tube Length: 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″, 21.25″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

There are size options for every size rider. Except a 20″, a really small riders need a 20″.

B: Chain Stay Length: 12.75″ – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a short chain stay. A short chain stay makes the bike feel really snappy and responsive.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.5.º – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.7″

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a tall standover. A tall standover will give the bike more control, and make bars and t-bog easier.

Conclusion

There is a reason that the Williams frame is selling out fast. This frame is designed for a rider who wants a snappy and responsive frame. If you ride a lot of street and like to spin, you’d love riding this frame. Even the headtube is set for responsiveness at a 75.5º angle.
