Boulder Bicycle Lugged

July 17 Orange Lugged Fun

And lets not forget our lugged Boulder Bicycles. This one sports some fun lugs. Better of course is the geometry based on our top-of-the-line Rene Herse bicycles. And then there are the lively tubes including True Temper Plantinum OX. These oversize lightweight tubes make for a frame that has the liveliness of a classic Columbus SL race frame but with what we feel is a more "planted", stable feel. Of course, if people want, we can use skinny tubes as light as 7/4/7 for the ultimate in a lively ride, although there are downsides to that which we explore with each customer.

  1. Hi, I'm looking at getting a 650b, but don't know much about frame tubing. Can you talk about some of the downsides to the 7/4/7 tubing? I'm 5'11", 175pds. Would I have issues? How does that tubeset compare with the 650 Terrafirma that had the Bicycle Quarterly guys very excited?

    Also, are you offering the Boulder 650 with lugs? And how much extra is the orange paint job? Thank you.
