I’ve fielded a lot of questions about porteurising bikes and finding frames that will take fatter rubber and guards/racks, so I’m linking to this preorder from Commuter for those that are chasing a frame.
New, not rusty or bent, designed for the rubber and guards, all mounts there, no kludges required.
- Tange Prestige CrMo tubes, non-oversized
- Threaded 1″ lugged fork with low rider pannier bosses, mini rack eyelets and double eyelets at the dropouts- Rear rack and fender eyelets
- Pump peg
- 3 sets of water bosses
- Designed for 650b wheels and cantilever brakes
- Max. tire fit: 650 x 42c slick tires w/fenders
Preorders also get frame prep (chase/face/steerer cut/etc) and BB/HS installed at no cost.
Personally, I don’t like quill stems, but if that’s not a deal breaker, the price is unbeatable at $650.
