Pass Hunter Frameset

$640.00

The Pass Hunter Disc is our "all-road" frame. It's designed for spirited riding on pavement, gravel, or dirt roads. It's like a randonneur, but with disc brakes and large tires.

The Pass Hunter has mid-trail geometry and shorter chainstays than our other frames for stable, yet sporty, handling. In addition to all road adventures, randonneuring and pass hunting, it makes would make a nice sportif, a fast credit card tourer, or even an all-weather commuter.

The term "pass hunter" refers to the sport of riding over multiple mountain passes. It's more popular in France and Japan than in the US. Rules are explained on this page.
