FARAN 2.0

The Faran is all about utility and versatility; road plus, commuting, gravel rides, audax, randonneuring with a small front rack, or touring with front panniers. It is the sort of bike that you will become very attached to as you rack up the miles together. As the seasons and years pass, racks and cages will be bolted on or taken off, wheels & tyre sizes will be experimented with; it’s form, capability and loading capacity will evolve to reflect your riding style. I think on some level every cyclist has the desire for self sufficiency and escape and it’s this idea which drives the utilitarian design ethos of the Faran.

The steel fork is a ‘commitment to utility’ and it has mounts for every rack and cage set-up you can imagine. Some folks just love the ride quality of a steel fork and rightly so. The low-mid trail geometry (see the Design Notes) means it handles well with a front load such as a rando bag and/or panniers, but ride it unloaded and it feels agile and precise [think Strael handling but with big tyres] so it’s perfect for a ‘road plus’ build.  The seat tube length is similar to the Strael, so less compact than the Secan; that means more room for frame bags and more of a classic flat..ish top tube aesthetic. The Faran benefits from all the tubing technology developed for the Secan, but the ‘non-heat treated’ Reynolds 631 material (vs. heat treated 853), combined with the steel fork results in a lower price. It is a fantastic product and the most versatile frameset we make.
