Why Cycles El Jefe Titanium Frame
FAST OR SLOW. JUST GO!
Introducing the Jefe, the latest bike in the Why Cycles lineup. The Jefe is the perfect combination of the Why builds you know and love: It’s as capable in the backcountry as the Wayward, but lighter and faster. It’s playful like the S7, but more serious and less swoopy. Take the Jefe bikepacking, over technical singletrack, and to the start line of your next XC race.
Frame Specs: Straight top tube, clearance for 29×2.6” tires with lots of mud clearance, sliding dropouts with 420-435mm chainstay adjustability. We did away with the belt drive split like our other bikes, but kept all the fender and bottle mounts. Load it up for adventure or keep it lightweight and fast.
The Jefe’s namesake is special, too. Jefe Branham is an ultra-endurance legend based in Gunnison, CO, and has been a friend and team rider for Why for two seasons. He told us what his dream bike would be for going fast in the backcountry, and turned it into a reality. Jefe’s personal mantra is “Fast or Slow Just Go,” so with his input we turned it into a sandblasted graphic on the raw titanium. The lily flower in the graphics is a nod to his two year old daughter, Lillian.
Taking inspiration from skate and snow culture, we decided to make this bike a pro-model. We are so grateful to Jefe for all he has done for Why and for helping us pin down this truly versatile and incredible bike, so a portion of each sale goes to him to support his racing career.
