The Roadrat fits into your life, for work and play. It was born of a desire for something swift and rugged to take on the rapidly crumbling tarmac of the urban landscape, but also up for disappearing for a few days with nothing but your sleeping bag and mat for company. The Roadrat will take you to work, to the shops, on holiday, to the hills, on adventures, or just to that quiet place where you get some headspace.Faster than a mountain bike on the road, way more fun and versatile than a traditional road bike, the Roadrat is your perfect 'other' bike. A Life Bike. It's fun, versatile, simple and tough as old boots.
New for 2014, the Roadrat3 has the larger diameter down tube from the Escapade to improve stiffness under load when you've got your bike singlespeed, or loaded up with luggage.
Also new are a lovely clean disc only layout, and a new RB3 9mm bolt thru axle fork with matching wheelset. This gives great stiffness to the fork, and the additional safety of the closed loop dropout allows us to move the disc mount back to the traditional rear fitment.
The chart is a guide to frame size for the latest version of the ROADRAT: Ultra Compact Geometry - Road means that the frames are low and long. You'll probably need a 350mm seatpost due to the compact sizing, and as a guide, the top tube lengths are identical to our MTB frames if you're coming over from our mountain bikes. You lot are just too different to say for sure, so drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll be happy to discuss set up based on what you're riding at the moment.
