KARAPOTI CROSS COUNTRY BIKES

KARAPOTI CROSS COUNTRY BIKES

KARAPOTI CROSS COUNTRY BIKES

The KARAPOTI is ideal for long fast days in the saddle. Ideal for the South Downs Way (SDW). It has loads of bottle points for luggage and bottles. Tyre clearance is 75mm so it will fit 29x2.25” tyres easily with clearance for mud. This is my bike of choice to Single speed the SDW. The Karapoti will also run drop bars for Monster Cross and can run Fixed for Tracklocross and with a 30.9mm seat tube this bike will fit a dropper post.
ALL OLSEN BIKES will run Single Speed or GATES CDX Carbondrive belts. We can do this with our RocknRollout Split Dropouts for derailleurs, single speed and belt-drive.

VERSATILITY OF OLSEN BIKES

ROCKNROLLOUTS

The RocknRollout Dropout is at the heart of the OLSEN frame design. We have focused our design around the rear derailleur dropout, but taken it further. Most bicycle frames have replaceable dropouts, but they do not allow for anything other than a derailleur. This idea came from the fact that UK riders often have a winter bike, which is often single-speed.
