An updated version of our longstanding favorite. The Kaffenback is back with a super clean disc specific frame set, revised tubing and geometry but with a heart of steel that still keeps you smiling with it's unique ride and durability.
With the advance in road disc brakes, and their advantages in gritty mucky weather and for loaded riding applications, the new Kaffenback is the ideal bike for long steady miles in all weather, year around, for commuting, for touring, or for just riding to the Caff, and back!
Our durable double butted Maxwall Chromoly steel tubing with tube sections from 0.9 to 0.6mm in places, disc mounts, clearance for 32c tires and rack/mudguard mounts mean total versatility too. For this model we've added an externally butted top tube to improve the strength and ride quality of the frame, an externally butted head tube, super clean cable routing, mudguard mounts and rack fittings. Two bottle mounts feature on all sizes.
The "stealth" version is anything but subtle. With reflective decals that beam back car headlights or camera flashes, it's the ultimate night time commuter.
Complete with a matching fork (with mudguard eye), taking a standard headset, and a 27.2mm post, this frame is all you need to build the ultimate workhorse long distance tourer.
