OLSEN BIKES PLUS-TYRE BIKEPACKING MACHINE
The Otepoti frame is our long distance Cross Country 29er plus frame, making it ideal for Bikepacking. This is ideal for long rides in the Brecon Beacons, Bear Bones or outer Mongolia. The OTEPOTI has a large cockpit and is perfect for tall riders. Fitting up to 29x2.8” tyres the OTEPOTI is a modern twist on an XC bike, for those who want high volume tyres for grip control and comfort. This frame is at home with a Rigid or 120mm suspension fork.

VERSATILITY OF OLSEN BIKES
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.

ROLHOFF SPEEDHUB COMPATBLE
If you're planning a long-distance bike packing tour, one of the best upgrades you can make to your bike is to switch to a Rohloff geared hub. A Rohloff Speedhub offers a number of benefits over a traditional derailleur system.
Overall, a Rohloff geared hub is an excellent investment for anyone planning a long-distance bike packing tour. Its durability, smooth shifting, and wide range of gears make it the perfect choice for touring on any terrain.
