Cyclo-Cross / Gravel
Gravel and cyclo-cross frames have the ability to be 'the' bike for so many different riders. Being light, agile, and able to fit a range of tire widths makes them very versatile... Use them as road bikes, trail bikes, touring bikes, kick-ass city bikes and of course for gravel and CX events.
Itching to quench that wanderlust with an epic tour? Or do you just need to carry stuff on a regular basis?
The Buena Vista is a true mixte frame with the double top tube/stays. Obviously offers lots of standover height and style as well. You'll find the geometry is more sporty, than comfy. Though it can be built up to suit either demeanor. Drop bars? Sure. Moustache bars? Of course.
Steel hardtails have been enjoying a new popularity as of late. But we remember a time when hardly any folks would get a steel frame as their first mountain bike. It was those who've riding a while and had tried aluminum, carbon and full suspension -- who would come a knockin'. We have frames for 29" and 27.5" wheels, but both will fit up to 27.5 x 2.8" tires.
Before the big brands came up with the jargon like "plush road" or "endurance road", we gave you supple steel road frames designed to let you glide along the tarmac for hours or days in comfort. Why endure hours of energy-sapping road buzz to save a half pound of weight. Most of our frames take both fenders and racks, so they are practical as well as speedy.
Riding fixed gear is unlike any other cycling experience. It is fast and precise. It is exhilarating, but demanding. When you experience the spot-on geometry and carefully specced Tange Prestige CrMo tubes of the Rush, you'll understand how aptly named it is.
