The Flint 28" gravel frame from bc original - the perfect basis for customised gravel bike builds


The bc original Flint, already known as a versatile gravel bike frame with generous tyre clearance, offers you a state-of-the-art basis for gravel road adventures. Thanks to a 70° head tube angle, even more difficult descents are manageable. Toe-overlap, i.e. contact between the toe and the front wheel when turning in, does not occur even with thick 28" tyres and fenders. Speaking of tyre clearance: It is up to 45 mm at the rear. In addition, the compact design of the frame with a bottom bracket drop of 55 mm prevents you from pedalling in narrow, gnarly terrain. This way, your bike always retains its agility and you benefit from the direct propulsion of the high-quality aluminium chassis on both short and long distances. This makes for more riding fun and comfort!
In the second generation, the Flint frame features a third bottle cage mount, a revised head tube and improved brake hose routing. The fender and pannier rack eyelets are tried and tested, making this frame suitable for commuting and bikepacking. As you probably know, the name " Flint" is an allusion to the flint that used to be mined from the Lousberg in Aachen, Germany.

Einmal einen Komplettaufbau damit gemacht und raus kam ein super Gravel Bike. Mit den richtigen Komponenten, hierbei sind es quasi Gravel Standards, passt alles optisch sehr gut. Platz für Getränkehalter, Schutzbleche und Gepäckträger sind da. Die Farbe ist in echt nochmal ein ticken eleganter!
Verbaute Komponenten :
-Tapered Carbon Gravel Gabel von Bike Bude
-Axis Sport Disc Laufradsatz aus Restbestand
-Steuersatz von Cane Creek von Bike Components
-Tretlager BSA Praxis Works aus Restbestand
-Kurbelsatz von Praxis Works Alba aus Restbestand
-Lenker von Specialized + Vorbau aus Restbestand
-Shimano 105er Antrieb aus Restbestand
-Shimano GRX Gravel Hydraulische Hebel + Schalten aus Restbestand

Aufbau hat Spaß gemacht und war ein cooles Projekt! Nur zum empfehlen wenn du dein Custom Bike aufbauen magst.
