The 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"

  • Fork Spacing: 12 x 100mm, thru-axle (included)
  • BB: English threaded 68mm
  • Brakes: IS mount disc, 160mm or 180mm rotors suggested

Love These

I have built two of these and I just bought a third frame.

Versatile, attractive and smooth riding.

Beautiful out of the Box

Frame and fork arrived sooner than expected (always a plus). Tore into the box like a kid on Christmas day. The attention to detail on the brazing, welds and finish is top notch. The frame is still wrapped up, on the hooks, until later this spring when I have time to complete the build. Then, it'll be road tested. Can hardly wait.

Very nice bike

Great bike

The polyvalent is a great do everything frame. Despite being flexible, it still feels reasonable quick and fast to ride. Love the addition of thru-axle & threadless 9/8” head tube.

Another Beauty!

Received my order within 24 hours (WOW--I know, right?!). I placed it the morning these became available again in June.

A cold hard examination of the problem "How many bicycles (N) does one need?" produces the scientific formula "N + 1"...but it's only theory. It's my third Velo Orange in the past 8 years, yet could the Polyvalent truly be that mythical "One Bike"?

A quick, and then in-depth second inspection after receipt revealed another beauty of a frame, built well to a standard & seemingly as advertised: that's important to me, Joe Internet Consumer, as I'm sure it should be to every Joe or Jane. It says a lot about both the product AND the company behind it, when "consistency" "quality" and "satisfaction" become by-words; just so, for Velo Orange.

I'm putting together a parts package for the build and first indications are I'll remain satisfied (happy even ;). The VO headset & an appropriate IRD Quad bottom bracket installed easily; a quick check of the many starred-thread inserts also continued the good vibes. I'm stoked for the future aboard my Polyvalent!
