You asked and we delivered. The Starling Cycles Roost.

Starling’s very first hardtail had to be something special, so we went all out to make a bike built for pure, undiluted fun. Made to go anywhere and do anything, it’s as suited to back-country epics as it is bike park blasts.

A handbuilt, zingy steel frame makes light work of rough and rowdy descents whilst mullet wheels bring that perfect balance of flick-knife and magnum. With room for a 120mm to 160mm fork you’ve got plenty of options to custom build your own perfect setup.

It’s not a spindly XC whippet, it’s not a sickly ‘ardcore ‘ardtail. It’s a ride-wherever, ride-whatever, tough-as-nails stainless do-it-all that’s built to take on whatever you can throw it at.

And, of course, it’s built with beautiful stainless steel for that shiny shiny, rust-free raw style.

      "Proved itself to be a solid choice for all-around trail riding, a realistic option for those who want a 140mm bike that can double as an enduro machine, and a truly enjoyable bike to ride.."

    • Starling Roost Hardtail review by The Loam Wolf

      "The Roost isn’t a sickly slack ‘ardcore hardtail. Neither is it a spindly and steep trail whippet. It’s a proper go-anywhere, do-anything all-rounder that we’ve built for local laps and adventures further afield. It’s as home on a big mountain epic as it is your after-work power lap or the hardtail category at your next enduro."
