Flaanimal is about adaptability. Flaanimals core design and nuanced details all revolve around giving each owner a stable platform from with to build out their own cycling vision. Flaanimal is a generalist. It plays well in dirt and it plays well on tarmac.

- Sliding dropouts allowing for a wide range of build configurations. he included 12mm through axle sliding dropouts feature a proprietary flat mount brake mount, an industry first for sliding dropouts. This mount is compatible with hydraulic flat mount brakes only, as mechanical flat mount brakes feature significantly larger calipers. We also offer a secondary flat mount slider that moves the caliper behind the seat stays and accepts any flat mount caliper. Many third party open standard dropouts will also fit our frame’s dropout design for even more brake, axle, and gearing options. T

Flaanimal features a stable, neutral geometry tuned for road, trail, and pretty much anything in between. We’ve ridden and tested this geometry exhaustively and are very pleased with the results. Much of our core geometry is shared with our Trialdonkey 2.0, which has victories in podiums in almost every major cycling discipline such as road, cyclocross, gravel racing, and mountain biking.
We worked very hard to minimize toe interference across all Flaanimal frame sizes, maintaining at least 5mm of clearance with average shoe sizes when a 45mm tire is used.
