A great bike if especially you’re thinking of bike camping or you’re someone who brings everything with them everywhere you go.

I haven’t ridden in some time so it’s time for it go. I’ll post some pictures later and will hunt for the parts list. All/most parts sourced from Velo Orange. Needs fresh tire sealant. Will post pic later but message for details.

The Piolet is our bikepacking and rough-road riding frame. It's designed for off-road touring, including dirt and gravel roads, double track, and single track. We built it to be sturdy, simple, and very capable. As with our other frames it's double butted chromoly steel. The fork is triple butted for reduced weight and extra strength. The seatstays come together in a cool mono-stay wishbone and compliment the segmented fork. The frameset is covered in bosses for easily mounting any racks, water-bottles, gear cages, and even fenders. It's happily set up in bikepacking fashion or as a traditional rack and bag tourer!
The Piolet handles similarly to a XC mountain bike, but slightly more in the touring direction. Feels natural with drop bars or flat bars. Non-suspension corrected fork handles predictably with or without a load!

Size Small is designed around 26 x 2.4" tires. (https://velo-orange.com/products/vo-piolet-frameset)
