Flaanimal is a multi use steel adventure frameset designed and built around the themes of versatility and adaptability. Now in its 4th iteration, Flaanimal has been the product of non stop refinement and iteration since the day it was first designed. In its current 4.0 state we believe it to be one of the most feature rich and enjoyable steel framesets available today.
Flaanimal is meant to be built and ridden any way that you like. Each of its primary design details are intended to leave key decisions about function up to the owner. With large tire clearances, interchangeable dropouts, and completely configurable shifting and braking routing the frameset is not locked into rigid categories. As each rider’s personal style and tastes evolve Flaanimal is designed to evolve along with them.
Flaanimal 4.0 ordering
For people wishing to purchase complete builds please order a frameset now and we will update the page later in the week with default build options. Frameset purchase price is 100% applicable to a full build cost so you will not lose the savings of ordering a complete build.
If a frameset sells out in your size and color we are allowing backorders and a second production run should arrive in April in time for spring and summer riding.

Our first production run of Flaanimal 4.0 framesets have been manufactured and are now in final painting. Estimated shipping from the factory to the USA is mid January 2018. By default shipping will be by ocean freight and take about a month, but for those wanting a Flaanimal as soon as possible we offer expedited air shipping from Taiwan to Denver (for USA shipping) for an additional $80 per frameset. The earliest expedited 4.0 deliveries will therefore begin showing up to customers mid to late January with ocean shipped frames delivering closer to the end of February 2018. No matter which option people choose frames should arrive well in time for spring riding. Delays are always possible but we work hard to keep customers updated about shipping through email and social media.
If you are looking at our 650b or 700c 2.0 carbon Rodeo Wheels for your new Flaanimal be advised that all Rodeo frameset owners qualify for a standing family discount of $300 per wheelset. Just add the wheels to your cart and use code familybusiness at checkout. We verify all uses of this coupon code.
We are happy to work with customers to create full builds around their Rodeo framesets. Each build that Rodeo delivers is tailored to its owner at no additional cost. In order to create a full bike build with us, simply purchase a frameset and send us an email. We apply 100% of the frameset purchase price towards your build and we work out your build details collaboratively via direct communication. We are able to source from a huge library of parts from across the bike industry to create the bike that matches your style and goals.
