Polyvalent - Low KickerThe Polyvalent is Velo Orange’s “do-it-all” frameset. It is the ideal platform to build a sturdy tourer, practical commuter, comfortable all-day randonneur, or a rugged gravel bike. Tire clearance is generous. With fenders: 650b x 48 or 26 x 2.3” (smooth). Forgoing fenders, the Polyvalent can gobble up 650b x 2.1” or 26x2.3 (knobby). There are star reinforcements on nearly every braze-on on the frame and fork. The rear brake routing is internal and features super easy installation via a brazed in tube - no more fishing for the housing. The rear end of the bike features dedicated rack and fender mounts. The fork has an elegant French-style bend that features braze-ons for a multitude of mounting options including: Rando-style front racks, side-mounted cargo cages, and low-rider pannier racks. The seatstays wrap elegantly around the integrated seat collar and nearly meet at a point. Of course, it wouldn't be a Velo Orange frame without proper fender mounts that face the tire to create a perfect fender installation every time. Here are the specs: Frameset material: 4130 double butted chromoly steel Fork: 1 1/8" threadless, 4130 chromoly steel with elegant bend Wheel Size: 650B or 26" Tire Clearance: 650B x 48mm, 26 x 2.3" (either with fenders) / 650b x 2.1 or 26 x 2.3 knobby (without fenders) Rear Spacing: 12 x 142mm, thru-axle with replaceable hanger (included) Fork Spacing: 12 x 100mm, thru-axle (included) BB: English threaded 68mm Brakes: IS mount disc, 160mm or 180mm rotors suggested Seatpost: 27.2mm Front Derailleur Size: 28.6mm Water bottle mounts: Triple on top of downtube, one set on the seattube, one set on underside of downtube Fender bosses: seat stay bridge, chainstay bridge, under fork crown Frame Eyelets: Double eyelets on rear dropouts for racks and fenders.
