Faran

Overview

|Faran – Noun – Old English – to go, to travel, to journey

The Faran is a humble and versatile workhorse; it will become your trusty companion and will encourage you to experience the landscape both near and far from home.

The Faran frame and fork are handmade in Europe from custom formed Reynolds 631 steel. The tubing design and modern geometry are grounded solely in function to deliver a bike that is comfortable, lightweight and durable. Much of the tube shaping was inspired by our Strael road bike meaning that when unloaded this bike will make an excellent winter trainer as well as a fast daily commuter.

Take into account the generous tyre clearance (up to 42c) plus the full array of mudguard and rack mounts and it adapts easily to become a loaded tourer for much dreamed about expeditions or an agile cross bike for exploring local bridleways.

CUSTOM STEEL FORK

CRAFTED FROM 4130 CHROMOLY

We created our own fork from custom shaped 4130 chromoly to be the perfect companion to the Faran frame. It clears a 42c tyre with ease and you can fit a 35c with full-length guards. Low-rider mounts make fitting a front rack simple while the hole in the crown means a dynamo lamp can be installed easily. Forward facing dropouts ensure the wheel is held securely in place under hard braking with heavy loads.

Quick specs:

  • 398mm axle to crown length.
  • 45mm offset.
  • 42mm tyre clearance, 35c with guards.
  • Mudguard and low rider mounts.
  • 1.1/8 steerer tube

EVERYBODY IS DIFFERENT

Everybody is different; our bikes are designed to account for differences in body proportions not just overall height. We call this ‘proportional geometry’. We offer all of our frame sizes in regular and tall versions so that you can find your perfect fit.

If you are in the middle ground then you can use the Regular (R) or Tall (T) versions depending on your preferred riding style. R for fast commutes or road rides, T for upright leisurely touring.
