Traildonkey 2.0 is Rodeo Labs’ premiere adventure bike platform.

We didn’t look to the left or the right for inspiration when developing Traildonkey, we looked to the mountains of Colorado, the Slickrock Trail and White Rim in Moab, the cobbles of Belgium and France, and the Flint Hills of Kansas. Our goal has been to prove the bike’s capabilities in real life, not just write them down as words and numbers on a page. We took two years to create and finish this bike because we had to not only design and manufacture a bike, we also had to learn how to design and manufacture a bike. We’ve grown a lot in two and a half years and we are very proud of the capability and versatility of this frameset.

Features FAQs

Traildonkey is produced by hand in low volumes. Framesets are available for those seeking to complete their own builds and we offer completely customizable full builds for those seeking assistance in tailoring the bike to their styles and goals.

Every full Traildonkey build is a custom build experience. We dial in key measurements such as stem length, bar width, crank length, and saddle size for optimal fit, and we allow buyers to bring their own favorite parts to the build if they would like to use items that they already have.

To initiate a full build please shoot us an email so that we can tailor a specification exactly to you.

Description

Traildonkey 2.0 frameset includes:

  • Traildonkey 2.0 frame
  • Seatpost collar
  • FSA headset and expansion plug.
  • Rodeo Spork 1.1 with 15mm through axle
  • 135 rear dropouts and QR
  • 142 rear dropouts and 12mm through axle
  • Routing endcaps for 1x, 2x, mechanical, hydraulic, or electronic shifting
  • Endcaps for dropper post or dropperless build configurations.

Geometry:

The Traildonkey fits true to size. That means if you order a 56 the frame will fit like a 56 typically does. The frame does have a generous slope to its top tube which lowers stand over height and makes the bike much more fun on trails. It also makes the frame adapted for dropper posts when built as a trail bike. The top tube slope can make the frame appear smaller, but the effective top tube height, reach, and other key measurements remain true to what you’d expect for each size.

Warranty:

The Traildonkey frame and fork is warranted against defects in design and construction for the life of the bike. If we designed or manufactured something incorrectly then you aren’t responsible if the bike somehow fails. The Traildonkey is not warranted against abuse, crashes, or when used outside of the reasonable intent for a bike of this type. If you do crash and damage your Traildonkey we will offer you a deeply discounted crash replacement. We don’t want to profit off of your misfortune. Having submitted the bike to ISO testing and further tested it for two years and many thousands of miles over almost every terrain imaginable, we are very confident that the bike we’ve created is durable and dependable. We expect Traildonkey to deliver years after years of satisfying use to any owner who properly cares for and maintains it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Pricing: Complete Builds

The Traildonkey 2.0 is an extremely versatile frameset and we are very excited to see people get creative with their builds. Some people may tailor the bike to trail use, some to gravel, and some to road riding. With simple gearing and tire changes the bike can be adapted to completely different riding styles.

On complete builds we will offer the ability for buyers to start with our standard build options but then dig into their specifications as they tailor their steed to their style. Have you always dreamed of a full carbon cockpit? We can help you add that to your build. Do you prefer a more road oriented gearing like 11-28 or do you want a wide range 11-42 build? It’s your call. 1x? Yes we are happy to do that. Di2? Yes. Custom bar/stem/crank measurements? Sure! If customers want to change from carbon wheels to aluminum or vise versa we are also happy to accommodate.

If you do not see your preferred build listed feel free to get in touch. This is YOUR bike and we are here to tailor it to you.

Custom Builds

Traildonkey is a very versatile frameset that can be built up for a number of different riding styles and terrain types. For people who want to really dig into their builds we offer full customization as an option.

Here are some examples of ways you can customize your steed:

  • Shimano Di2 builds
  • SRAM eTap builds
  • Campagnolo builds
  • Wolf Tooth Components drivetrain customizations.
  • Carbon cockpits from ENVE, Easton, Ritchey, and others.
  • Full custom paint
  • Bike builds with no wheels. Use your own.
  • Fully custom wheel builds.
  • Power meters, gadgets, and blinkey bits.

For the time being we will quote customizations at the time of request.

Technical Specifications FRAME:

  • Frame Material: 3k and unidirectional carbon fiber. Aluminum dropout hardware, cable routing guides, and bottom bracket shell. Aluminum lower headset bearing seat and carbon upper bearing seat.
  • Bottom Bracket: PF30
  • Rear Dropouts: Carbon with swappable aluminum hardware for both 142 x 12mm through axle or 135 Quick Release both included with each frame. 135mm QR threads directly into frame hardware instead of a separate end cap creating a more integrated connection with the frame.
  • Rack Mounts: Front and rear, full length ready.
  • Fender Mounts: Front and Rear
  • Cable Guides: Interchangeable mechanical or Di2. Can be capped to seal frame when not in use. Removable housing cover at lower bottom bracket shell for easy access to rear brake and derailleurs.
  • Dropper Post: Dropper post internal routing along top tube with exit point at upper seatpost. Can be capped with flush hardware when not in use.
  • Seatpost: 31.6mm
  • 1x Compatibility: Removable front derailleur mount for clean 1x installations.
  • Single Speed Compatibility: Planned with future dropout hardware
  • Belt Drive Compatibility: Not currently planned.
  • Bottle mounts: 3. Seat Tube, Down Tube, and beneath Down Tube.
  • Tire Clearance: 56mm front and 52mm rear rear at 700c. Traildonkey is optimized for 700c. Any tire between 23c and 45c will fit with room for the elements. Traildonkey will also accept 650b wheels and tires but tire clearance does not increase significantly on the frame at 650b. Traildonkey will easily fit WTB Horizon 47c slicks.
  • Weight: Final exact weights pending, but approx 1250 for the raw 54cm and 1450 for the raw 58cm. 52cm and 56cm weights will be in-kind. Weights vary depending on graphics and paint.

 

Technical Specifications Rodeo 2.0 carbon wheels:

All Force / Ultregra, and higher Traildonkey builds feature the Rodeo 2.0 carbon wheelset. We’ve spent three years and untold thousands of miles pounding these wheels to make sure that they stand up to the rigors of Donkey life. We’ve raced road, CX, gravel, and MTB on these wheels. We’ve ridden slickrock, gravel, cobbles, rock gardens, snow, stairs, drops, and pretty much anything else we can imagine on these wheels and they’ve been a fantastic combination of light weight and incredible strength.

Our 2.0 rims are a proprietary ground-up wheel design born from our own molds and tooling. The wheels feature a 30mm depth and a 23mm inner width which serves as a wide platform for modern adventure tires. They feature a tubeless compatible elevated bead lock design that virtually eliminates burps.

Every one of our wheels whether standard offering or custom are hand built in Portland, Oregon by Steve Pamlenyi of Magnetic Wheel Co. Steve has built every one of our wheels since 2014 and has over 20 years of hand building experience.

Our standard builds are 28 / 28 hole on Sapim Race spokes and Sapim nipples laced up to Bitex Centerlock / Rodeo 2.0 disc hubs in 15mm front through axle and 12mm rear through axle.

Riders who would prefer to customize hubs, spokes, nipples, and spoke count can order their Rodeo 2.0 wheels any way they want with applicable associated costs. Get in touch if you want to customize.

650b:

The Traildonkey frame and Rodeo Spork both play nicely with 650b wheels allowing for an expanding range of tire choices. If you would like to spec 650b wheels on your Traildonkey instead of 700c, just let us know and we can work up your specific build.
