DETAIL

Our beautiful Rachel step-through frame, named for the street where our flagship store is located, is back with a few improvements! Some people were using their original-run Rachels for full-on four-pannier international touring, and while the original spec was just fine for such endeavours, we decided to make some changes to make such adventures a bit easier: beefed-up tubing, more tire clearance, longer wheelbase and raised front-end for more comfort, and a few new eyelets here and there.

Step-throughs also make for great cargo haulers. Those extra tubes in the rear triangle reduce flex, and stepping through a frame will almost always look better than swinging a leg over a loaded diamond frame, which can be cumbersome and isn't always elegant.

The two smaller sizes are still designed around 26" wheels, while the two larger sizes use 700c wheels. Available in two magnificent new colours, Beaujolais and Asphalt.

  • Tube Type: 4130 CrMo steel (double butted top and down tubes/triple butted seat tube)
  • Bottom Bracket: 68mm wide, British Threaded
  • Seat Tube inner diameter: 27.2mm
  • Diagonal drop-outs
  • M5 eyelets on seat stays and drop-outs for rack and fenders
  • 5M eyelets on down tube for 2 bottle cages
  • 5M eyelets on fork for fenders, mini platform rack and lowrider rack
  • Forged diagonal rear drop-out, 132.5mm spacing to fit most current hubs
  • For V-brakes. Cantilevers aren't recommended and you probably won't find a way to set them up right.

Supplied with:

  • 1" threaded bent lugged fork with 26.4mm ø fork crown
  • Bottom Bracket shift cable guide
  • Rear hub positioning screws
  • Seat post bolt
