Velo Orange just released some preliminary photos and information about their new off-road touring gravel and all-around rough-stuff frame: the Camargue (probably so called).
Assuming the geometry fits me, I think I may have just found my next gravel bike. The right clearances (2.1″ with a fender) and the right dropouts (semi-horizontal for singlespeed and IGH as well as regular gears) with a threadless fork and no disc brakes. Great color too.
Sounds just about perfect to me. Let’s just hope it fits.
Edit: The Camargue would also make a pretty good candidate for the Crossover.
Update: I checked with VO about the Camargue’s geometry and availability. They’ve told me that it will be available in late Spring of 2014 and the geometry will remain top-secret until it goes on sale. This is a bit of a disappointment for me, as the Camargue was my top choice for my Trans Iowa v10 rig.
