Velo Orange Piolet Bikepacker
« on: May 25, 2016, 10:19:11 pm »
Posting up my Velo Orange Piolet bikepacking rig to see if there's interest.  It's a really cool frameset capable of fitting 29, 27.5+ and 29+ wheels comfortably in the front and back.

I currently have it setup as follows:

- Medium frame and fork
- Salsa Semi 29er rims laced to Chin Hauer hibs (same manufacturer as WTB Laserdisc hubs)
- XT 2x10 crankset with 170 mm arms and 38T/28T rings
- New XT rear derailleur (non-clutch)
- SLX front derailler
- Dura Ace barend shifters mated to Paul Thumbies
- Jones Loop H-bar (660mm)
- Velo Orange stem (80mm)
- BB7 disc brakes
- Ergon GC1 BioKork grips for sweptback bars
- Ahern bottle opener/headset spacer
- Cane Creek 40 headset
- Thomson setback seatpost
- Salsa Minimalist front rack
- XT cassette (can't remember if it is 11-34T or 11-36T)

Saddle and pedals are not included.  Picture shows Schwalbe Big Apple tires, but the bike will come with a newish set of WTB Nanos.

All in all, the bike is in fantastic to new condition and has seen few miles - bought to use as a townie bike, but my neck of the woods isn't great for road riding.  I prefer to stay on the trails. All components/accessories are silver which makes for a sweet and classy look.

Asking $1,150 OBO.
