The Pass Hunter is an "all-road" frame. It's designed for spirited riding on pavement, gravel or dirt roads. It's like a randonneur, but with disc brakes and large tires.
The Pass Hunter has mid-trail geometry and shorter chainstays than our other frames for stable, yet sporty, handling. In addition to all road adventures, randonneuring and pass hunting, it makes would make a nice sportiff or a fast credit card tourer.

The particulars are:
Includes frame and fork. Headset not included.
