Velo Orange Polyvalent
Gravel! Disc Brakes! Steel! Retro! 650b!
Oh my god, there are so many bicycle buzzwords today. If you’d like a bike that has them all (except “electric”), consider this Velo Orange Polyvalent.
It rides beautifully loaded down with stuff as well as bare bones like you see it in our photo. The bike is actually cool (sorry Rivendell, no matter how hard you try nobody will ever consider your bikes or tan corduroy pants cool), and the attention to detail is fantastic.
Velo Orange has all of the attachment points and frame angles figured out to make touring a breeze. The tubing is nice quality, so the bike ends up a bit lighter than a Surly (and the finish is better looking and more durable as well).
Available as a frameset or a complete bike.
