Pine Cycles Launches with its Versatile Rasa Frame and 26″, 650b, and 700c Compatibilities

Pine Cycles – which we featured at the ENVE Open House this year – debut frame the RASA is designed to accommodate 700×35, 650×48, and 26×2.3 tires with disc or rim brakes. Custom dropouts, featuring 3 separate interchangeable inserts make the RASA the world’s most versatile bicycle…

26×2.3″ fixed/ss build

The Columbus Zona Steel Tubing welded in the USA delivers the exceptional ride quality renowned with high end butted steel frames. Pine Cycles resurrected the 1 ¼” headtube standard that has been dormant since the early years of mountain biking.This custom headtube allows for a slim, elegant, and remarkably lightweight headtube compared to the 44mm or larger headtubes traditionally found on Disc Brake Bikes.

650x48mm gravel build

The high quality tubing, ultra slim headtube, standard English BB and custom dropouts all contribute to an impressive frame weight of 4.09lbs / 1859g for a size 56, making it one of the lightest steel production frames available for road and gravel.

Geometry is designed for all day comfort with impressive acceleration. With slightly taller stack and shorter chainstays than are often found on many of today’s gravel bikes, the RASA offers exceptional comfort and ride feel, while being incredibly responsive when the power is put down.

700x35mm road build

The RASA is a true do everything bike. The frame can be built up with disc brakes and multiple wheels to utilize the versatility. Or assembled as a purpose built: all day road bike, gravel bike, tracklocross bike, light touring bike, commuter bike, dirt road bikepacking bike and so many more. No matter how the RASA is built up now, different configurations can be adapted if interests evolve down the road.
