4.0

Rodeo Adventure Labs is proud to announce the fourth and finest iteration of its supremely versatile steel adventure frameset. The Flaanimal.

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

Flaanimal 4.0 has been a massive success. Thank you! Unfortunately that means we ran out of quite a few frame sizes / colors very quickly. We started a much larger 2nd production run in late February and frames are expected mid May. If your desired frame is no longer in stock you may back order it below towards the May frames or you can of course wait until frames show as back in stock when the frames arrive in Denver, CO. 

If you would like to order a full Flaanimal build towards the May frames please send us an email at orders@rodeo-labs.com so we can help work up a build sheet and get your details dialed while we wait for frames.

We’ve had a fair number of people ask how much it would cost to build a bike identical to the Pine Cone build that we feature in our photos. This built is pretty top of the line across the board and it adds a power meter to the mix as well. Here is the breakdown on spec and cost.

Flaanimal 4.0 Features

Reynolds 725 custom butted steel frame

Flaanimal 4.0 features a Reynolds 725 custom butted heat treated chromoly steel frame. Each tube profile is uniquely designed and balanced for weight and the strength requirements of an adventure frameset. The EC44 head tube, bottom bracket shell, and rear dropouts are machined to remove every ounce of un necessary material while leaving robust joining surfaces for strength. The rear triangle is optimized for drive side and non drive side loads and for the specific needs of the stainless steel Gates Carbon Drive frame coupler hardware.

With frame weights in the 2000gr range for size 48 up to 2500 gr for size 61 we’ve been able to carefully create an incredibly strong frameset that can stand up to the rigors of road and off road riding. Our frameset weights are on par with the best in the industry while at the same time offering a more broad and adaptable feature set than any other frameset in this category.

The Flaanimal 4.0 frameset is on average 800 grams lighter than the Flaanimal 3.0 frameset.

Rodeo Spork 1.2

Flaanimal 4.0 was the motivator for developing the 1.2 iteration of the Rodeo Spork, our full carbon adventure fork. Just like Flaanimal, Spork is unique in the market in its feature set.

  • Fully internal dynamo hub and USB stem cap routing
  • Tire clearances for 700 x 45 and 650b x 47
  • Dual reinforced mid leg mounting options for racks and cages
  • 15mm and 12mm through axle compatibility
  • Rack and fender eyelets on the lower fork leg and crown
  • Flat mount brake and post mount brake compatibility
  • Internal brake routing
  • Full carbon steer tube and fork construction
  • 12.5kg load carrying capacity on eyelets

Interchangable sliding dropouts

Interchangable sliding dropouts allow the Flaanimal frameset to be customized for a huge range of gearing, axle, drive types, and braking options. The frameset comes standard with sliders for the most common build configurations.

  • Standard 9 – 10 – 11 speed road and MTB derailleurs
  • 12mm through axles
  • Flat mount disc brakes

Flaanimal is the only frameset on the market that accomodates and features sliding dropouts for flat mount brakes.

Rodeo Labs and third party vendors also offer sliders for the following build configurations:

  • Single speed chain driven drivetrains
  • Gates Carbon Drive belt drive drivetrains
  • Post mount disc brakes
  • Alfine and Rohloff internally geared hubs
  • Quick release or through axle options

Internal routing options

New to Flaanimal 4.0 is a system of internal routing options and interchangable frame plugs that allow for a clean, uncluttered appearance combined with a huge range of build types.

The downtube features four reinforced internal routing ports that are brazed onto the frame. Interchangable frame plugs allow each port to be used as an entry or exit point for brake routing, derailleur routing, di2 wiring, and even dynamo light routing.

Routing exits near the bottom bracket and runs externally along the chain stays for mechanical and hydaulic builds. Di2 wires also have the option to be run fully internally on the frame to further streamline the appearance of the complete bike and to protect Di2 wires from the elements.

EC44 Head Tube

Flaanimal features a custom offset machined EC44 spec head tube that keeps the weight low and allows for press-in tapered headset cups from

FSA

White Industries

and other manufacturers.

Additional specifications and features

Flaanimal features thoughtful design decisions in its smaller but equally important details:

  • Integrated rack mounts and fender mounts front and rear
  • Integrated full frame peg mount
  • BSA 68mm English threaded bottom bracket
  • Triple water bottle cage mounts on frame and dual mounts on fork
  • 27.2 seatpost diameter for compliance and ride quality
  • Full electro dipped anti rust coating on inside and outside of frame before painting

Flaanimal 4.0 geometry

Flaanimal geometry is unchanged from 3.0 to 4.0. Rodeo Labs does not design its bikes as gravel specific, we design bikes to be as widely adaptable to a broad range of riding conditions as possible from road, to gravel, to trail. Our geometry prioritizes the elimination of toe clearance across all sizes. Our geometry prioritizes high speed stability. Our geometry prioritizes bottom bracket clearance in rough, rocky terrain.

Flaanimal 4.0 COLORS

We are offering three new color options for Flaanimal 4.0. We loved the paint colors that we offered on 3.0 but we feel like that as a brand Rodeo needed to keep exploring with color no matter how good the 3.0 colors looked.

For 4.0 we now offer the following colors:

Pine Cone

Inspired by the palettes of 1970s camping gear, Pine Cone combines a deep chocolate / merlot main frame color with celeste rear seat stays and accents inside of the front fork. Orange type and cream accents round out the look for a truly distinctive frameset that will never, ever be mistaken for anything but a Rodeo Labs Flaanimal.

Bleaux Deaux

Blue is the single most popular color on planet earth and the 3.0 Bleaux was the most popular Flaanimal color. It’s pretty safe to say we wanted to offer blue again, but we wanted to do it differently this time. For the main frame color we went with a deep navy color that keeps things classy and classic. For the accent color we went with a brighter complementary shade of blue. The combined effect is the most reserved 4.0 color offering, but one that is still distinctive in a crowded market of otherwise similar looking bikes.

Chocolate creamsicle

We love the pop of an orange frame, but there is no way that we were going to make a frame that was all the way orange. It needed some contrast, so we combined a dark chocolate brown with the orange to make a color option that was both vibrant but also once again unique. On this frame the Flaanimal 4.0 lettering on the top tube is also a vibrant electric blue.

 

Fair warning

This production run of Flaanimals is not high volume. The most frames have been made in the middle sizes such as 54 and 56cm. The least frames were made in the outlier sizes such as 52 and 61cm. Bleaux Deaux will be the most plentiful color with Pine Cone and Chocolate Creamsicle being fewer. If you are considering a Flaanimal 4.0 and are seeking one of the sizes and colors that will be more rare we do encourage you to act quickly on those framesets as there are only one or two of certain combinations being manufactured in this production run. We’ll follow this production run with further production runs in 2018, but probably not for delivery before April / May
