"Easily the most versatile bike out of dozens tested, the chromoly Polyvalent handles like a dream on long city voyages with as much as 40 pounds on the front rack"
Unfortunately we are currently out of the very popular Polyvalents. Our work on the redesigned fork delayed production by almost 4 months and we ran out of frames. I'm pressing the factory for an accurate delivery date and will post it as soon as we know. We are also looking into a pre-ordering system, but I'm not sure this is a good idea since frames seem never to arrive on schedule. We'll offer the mini-build kits again when the new frames arrive, but we are also considering offering full-build kits, maybe even complete bikes.
Here' a summery of the changes for the next batch:
- Larger diameter down tube to make the frame a little stiffer because lots of folks are carrying really big loads on Polyvalents.
- Down tube shifter bosses.
- Nicer fork bend.
- Added low-rider bosses.
- Shiny dark green paint.
