VO Campeur Frameset

"...were I forced to limit myself to a single bike, this may well be the leading candidate." Adventure Cyclist (July 2013 review)

The Campeur, as the name suggests, is a touring frame for paved, or unpaved, roads. It can carry a substantial load for long unsupported trips, yet handles beautifully even with no load. In fact it makes a nice gravel racer.

Here are some of the highlights and specs:

  • 4130 double butted chrome-moly frame and fork.
  • 1" fork with lovely French-style bend. Uses a traditional quill stem (or adapter and threadless-style stem)
  • 700c wheel size for 51cm-63cm sizes. 26" wheel size for 47cm and 49cm.
  • 135mm rear spacing.
  • Clearance for 38mm tires with fenders.
  • Canti brake bosses. Seatstay cable stop with adjuster.
  • Vertical dropouts with double eyelets front and rear.
  • Fender bosses under fork crown, at seat stay bridge, and at chainstay bridge for easy fender mounting.
  • Three water bottle cage mounts.
  • Lowrider through bosses and seatstay rack eyelets.
  • Pump peg (on size 57-63cm). Rear dropouts on 51-55cm are designed slightly differently, but still have 2 eyelets.
  • Kickstand plate, because touring bikes should stand up.
  • Metal head badge.

The frame geometry chart can be found at this link.
