So what can be customised?
The JOURNEY V bespoke package offers a huge range of possible customisation, and we are happy to cater to your specific needs during the design process. But to help dial in what we are offering we've listed some of the geometry and specifications that we can fine tune for you during the design process.
As each JOURNEY V will be personal this is meant as a guide and we are happy to chat and discuss individual needs via email.
We can accommodate most cable routing positions on the frame, and we offer a mix-and-match routing service. There are three main types of cable routing options: full internal routing, part internal routing, and fully external routing.
Full internal routing runs entirely through the frame from the down tube and exits on the stays. However, this option is limited to frames with a T47 BB.
Part internal routing is a combination of internal and external routing, with gears and brakes routed internally but exiting externally on the seat stays. The dropper is fully internal in this case, and this option is compatible with any BB option.
Fully external routing involves running the gears and brake on the outside of the frame, secured with plastic C-Clips. The dropper can be either internal or external in this configuration.
The JOURNEY V has the possibility to specify the bottom bracket that suits your requirements. We recommend the T47 for those who plan to use full internal routing, but you may also opt for threaded BSA or PressFit, depending on your preference.
We provide a choice of two rear dropouts for the JOURNEY V. The first is a sliding dropout, which is ideal for single-speed applications or for those who need to adjust tire clearance regularly. The second, a simple yet effective rounded "Breezer" style dropout, which comes with a replaceable alloy hanger.
This is one of the key benefits of our JOURNEY V platform over other bike packing frames, we will add as many bolt on mounts (braze ons - old school) as you require. These can be multiple water bottle mounts, specific mounting for bags, racks or mudguards whatever takes your fancy. You can simple tell us want you want and where, and we will add them to your bespoke frame.
THE PERFECT GEOMETRY
Here we've included an overview of the adjustments we can make to the core geometry to make your frame fit perfectly. Starting with one of our four frame sizes; small, medium, large or XL:
Effective Top Tube, Head Tube Length, Seat Tube Length, Head Tube Angle, Seat Tube Angle, Chainstay Length (max tyre size), BB drop, Axle to Crown and Fork Offset.
These last three are created by the geometry but we can adjust them by altering the core geometry after we have made the inital drawing:
Reach, Stack and Wheelbase
Sometimes this world of numbers and options can seem incredibly complex, but we can help!
You can start by just telling us your height, and a few ride preferences and we can build the geometry and specification around these, then work out the fine tuning with you during the design and drawing process, or if you know what you are after you can simply send us your perfect geometry and we can take it from there.
ALL THE TRIMMINGS
The JOURNEY range of innovative bikepacking components now includes; Forks, Stems, High Riser bars and soon to be added front and rear Racks.
These components are the perfect additions to a JOURNEY V frame, and when ordered with the frame get a huge €399 discount over the normal RRP, giving your JOURNEY V the complete titanium look, and of course the forks can be customised with your frame.
