Velo Orange Camargue Frameset
|Buy:||Please Contact Us|
The Camargue is a touring frame for thowe who ride mostly on gravel/un-paved, roads. It can carry a substantial load for long unsupported trips, yet handles very well even with no load at all. It can be ridden with traditional racks and panniers or bike packer style. Being a mid-trail design it works well with both front and rear loads.
Geometry is designed to handle like the much-praised Campeur, even with larger tires. This frame is not suspension corrected, allowing it to be better tuned for fine handling. These can also be built up as rugged city bikes or commuters.
In case you were wondering, it's named after an ancient breed of French horse reputed to be especially rugged and intelligent.
