What are the differences (and applications) between the Flananimal and the Trail Donkey?
The Traildonkey is a carbon fiber frameset. It is lighter than the Flaanimal, and perhaps a bit more racey.
The Flaanimal is similar in geometry to the TD but is heavier due to steel main construction. The Flaanimal does offer more tire clearance and better native singlespeed compatibility due to the sliding dropouts.
The bikes overlap 80-90% on a venn diagram.
