Note: If an item cannot be added to cart, it is out of stock.  Please check back for further availability.

An adventure touring frame built around 650b/27.5" tires. Stable enough medium duty touring and bikepacking, but also offers an enjoyable ride unloaded as well. The bottom bracket height is higher than your average touring bike or road bike, but not as high as a hardtail mountain bike to give some advantage riding off-road while still feeling steady loaded up
