Ah, aluminum. Crisp and responsive without being overly harsh. We feel aluminum is a fantastic material – lighter and stiffer than steel, it lends itself to performance, both for long days on gravel or for road racing. In short, aluminum is rad.
We hand-build each Darrell frame one at a time in our shop. Dedacciai Scandium tubing fro Italy, S-bend seat and chain stays attached to our own machined head tube and dropouts. Darrell comes standard with internal brake routing and either disc or caliper brakes. Di2, eTap, or cable? We do ’em all. And gorgeous paint to top it off. More info on what you can do with paint is here: Paint
Standard frame options include both disc brake or caliper brake. Disc brake bikes come standard with 142/100 x 12mm through axle dropouts, and rim brake bikes come standard with quick release dropouts. You can also choose between Di2 or standard cable routing.
