New! Fleetvelo Joust 135
At the 2010 InterBike show in Vegas, we unleashed the new Joust 135mm HS Coup. This custom bike was built complete with S & S couplers for travel and ISCG tabs for using a Hammerschmidt 2 spd crank that will be available options. The fork also featured a 135mm spaced proto fork with V-Brake Tabs. This new frame can also take a 26 x 2.1 nobby tire with a true wheel, we still suggest between a 1.5-1.95 slick for better performance, how ever in Chicago we've seen some nobbies for grass polo.
The Joust 135mm is now available
-True Temper OX Platinum Tubing
-V Brake Mountes
-Spacing: 100 front, 135mm rear
-Joust Geometry (featured on www.fleetvelo.com) quick and comfortable like a sofa on wheels
-Accommodates 26 x 1.35-2.1" slick tires up to 2" knobby
-53cm, 56cm, and 59cm (43mm and 62mm upon request)
-73mm English thread bottom bracket
-Rack mounts on fork and rear dropouts
-$750 Frame and Fork made in Waterford, Wisconsin
-ISCG tabs: $100
-S & S Couplers: $600 Totally worth it for the jet setting polo player.
