The Pass Hunter is the speediest of our offerings and is designed for light-packing adventures over mountain passes, Sport Touring, and even the weekend club ride!

While this may look like a traditional randonneur, don't let that elegant Cool Blue and nostalgic 80's Burgundy paint and metallic logos fool you. This frameset is packed with modern design and features.

The wishbone rear triangle is a Velo Orange custom arrangement. By simplifying the connection points, it makes the rear end light and springy for optimal power transfer.

The main triangle uses an oversized 35.0mm downtube and a standard 28.6 top tube. It makes the bike planted, comfortable, and with flex in all the right places.

Lastly, the front end. The headtube is tapered to allow the use of aftermarket carbon forks that are available such as Rodeo Labs and Whisky, along with many others that fit into the "utili-fork" genre. The steel fork offered with the frameset has an axle-crown of 393mm with 51mm of rake.

Something Special

I have now had the Pass Hunter for about 2000 miles now. I have done a couple of brevets on it as well. I can honestly say that this is a truly exceptional bicycle. There is something special about this bike and I have to say that it is capable of so much. I have ridden it in the hills around Orange County and the coast of California. It has also seen many the wineries in the Temecula Valley. Everywhere I go someone always has a comment or a complement about this bicycle. It handles everything that I throw at it. I am now even buying a new set of Velo Orange 650b wheels for it to see what else it is capable of. I do have to say I was a little worried about purchasing this frame as I was comparing it to multiple others including custom steel frames. I pulled the trigger on it and was certainly not let down. I would buy this frame again without even thinking about it. In fact there is something about this frame to me that stands out and it is wonderful.. I honestly can’t put my finger on it but it really separates itself out from the crowd. I have owned many of other frames from Colnago‘s to Pinarello‘s to Pegoretti and this frame is like no other. I have sold all of the other frames but I called this the heirloom frame and would never consider letting it go. No matter what I do in the future I will always keep this one, it is something special to me. If you are considering this frame just go ahead and purchase it. I know you will not be let down in any fashion. Thank you Velo Orange for creating such a wonderful frame.

Forever frame

I bought this frame almost on a whim, looking for a steel all around fast gravel bike that I could take bikepacking and was from a small company. I hadn’t seen or really heard of this bike until purchasing and man am I glad I did. As a bike mechanic I’ve ridden bike more expensive than cars, and this takes the cake. It rides with so much character, and pedals lighter than it really is. It looks unique, and is the perfect mix of godly geometry and springy steel to make you float on gravel and shoot forward on pavement. This is a bike I plan to upgrade and have for a long time, a rare commodity in the cycling industry.

Sweet Ride

I love my new bike! I built this Pass Hunter as a 1x11 flat-bar road bike with a tall stem, 35mm slicks, leather saddle, and a Magura front brake. In lieu of a rear brake, I routed my fully housed dérailleur cable through the downtube. I crammed the controls onto a narrow 500mm bar delimited by PDW cork handles. The VO randonneur rack works nicely for hauling French-toast leftovers home from breakfast at the bakery, once I acquired a long enough crown bolt for the Pass Hunter fork's enormous crown. The one part that I kept from my old French-made Motobécane is the bottle cage, because that's the one part that had nothing wrong with it. The chainring is oval, a first for me. So far I've put just 24 miles on this bike, but I'm super excited for the next 24.
