We’ve been big fans of Rodeo (Adventure) Labs for years now and are so excited to be a brand partner. Rodeo Labs is one of those brands that just gets it! The new Flaanimal 5.0 is the culmination years of constant innovation and it boasts some amazing specs and achievements. New for this iteration there's tons of updated features including: Increased tire clearance (700c x 50mm, 27.5 x 2.4") while maintaining road crank compatibility, a woven carbon headtube and seatube, more adjustment from the rear dropout, and, with the introduction of the updated Spork 3.0, a significantly lighter carbon fork. Speaking of the Spork 3.0, it is compatible with lower rider AND over-the-tire front racks and can handle 12.5Kg! (27.5 lbs)

The Rodeo Labs Flaanimal 5.0 is clearly one of the greatest gravel bikes on the market today, and with it's proven history, (2021 Tour Divide was won on the Flaanimal 5.0,) beautiful design, and with a fantastic brand at it's back, there's really no better choice out there! 

*Flaanimal 5.0 comes in a 'naked' finished with coloured decals. What that means is, the bike is ED coated (electrophoretic deposition) to prevent corrosion but is actually not painted. The ED coating provides a satin finish (satin is the lustre between matte and gloss,) that is both durable and quite nice to look at. Decals can be removed and new colours added without too much difficulty. There are optional Cerakote finishes as well for an additional $700 CAD.
