VO Campeur Frameset

"...were I forced to limit myself to a single bike, this may well be the leading candidate." Adventure Cyclist (July 2013 review)

The Campeur, as the name suggests, is a touring frame for paved, or unpaved, roads. It can carry a substantial load for long unsupported trips, yet handles beautifully even with no load. In fact it makes a nice gravel racer.

Here are some of the highlights and specs:

  • 4130 double butted chrome-moly frame and fork.
  • 1" threaded fork with lovely French-style bend. Compatible with our Threadless Stem Adaptor.
  • 700c wheel size for 51cm-63cm sizes. 26" wheel size for 47cm and 49cm.
  • 135mm rear spacing.
  • Clearance for 38mm tires with fenders.
  • Standard 68mm threaded bottom bracket.
  • Canti brake bosses. Seatstay cable stop with adjustor.
  • Vertical dropouts with double eyelets front and rear.
  • Fender bosses under fork crown, at seat stay bridge, and at chainstay bridge for easy fender mounting.
  • Three water bottle cage mounts.
  • Lowrider through bosses and seatstay rack eyelets.
  • Pump peg (on size 57-63cm). Rear dropouts on 51-55cm are designed slightly differently, but still have 2 eyelets.
  • Kickstand plate, because touring bikes should stand up.
  • Uses a 27.2mm seatpost and 28.6mm front derailleur clamp size.
  • Metal head badge.

Any components ordered at the same time as the frame will be discounted by 10%. (This discount will be added after you check out and when we process the order. It will be reflected in your final invoice/shipping notice.)

Note: this is an oversized item, so our free shipping promotion does not apply. But your shipping cost will never exceed $22 for orders to the contiguous US. Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, military addresses, and overseas will be quoted separately. Due to size restrictions, we can't send frames to certain countries (at least not at reasonable cost).
