Traildonkey 2.1 is Rodeo Labs’ premiere adventure bike platform.

We’re winding up 2018 and the 2.1 frame spec with an Adopt A Donkey sale. 2019 will see the release of Traildonkey 3.0, and we aren’t disclosing details on the new bike until the very end of the year but TD 2.1 is an incredible bike with features that are perfect for about 95% of the general gravel riding community. If you’ve been eying a Traildonkey the timing couldn’t be better.

From the podium at Kanza to the climbs of Leadville to the cobbles of Belgium and France, Traildonkey has been on a relentless march towards adventure since 2014. Every time we think we’ve pushed this platform as hard as we think we can, we push it a little bit harder and it keeps on rewarding us with huge smiles and bigger memories. Traildonkey is an adaptable use frameset designed to go where you point it whether that be road, gravel, or even out onto the trails. We developed Traildonkey 100% from scratch and designed it to solve the challenges of mixed terrain riding.

We offer full builds of Traildonkey 2.1 and we also sell the frameset solo for people wanting to complete their own builds. Our full build templates are outlined below and any template can be modified for your unique needs or style. We offer a complementary build consultation for each full build. If you’d like to discuss details and spec out a bike for the way you ride just shoot us a note:

Start your build!

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.

Traildonkey 2.0 has evolved into 2.1 with a move to the T47 threaded bottom bracket standard, a 27.2 seatpost for more compliance, and Rodeo Spork 1.2 with internal dynamo routing features.

Description

Traildonkey 2.1 frameset includes:

  • Traildonkey 2.1 frame
  • Seatpost collar
  • FSA headset and expansion plug.
  • Rodeo Spork 1.2 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 four 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]

The Traildonkey 2.1 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 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 9-46 build? It’s your call. 1x? Yes we are happy to do that. Di2? Yes. Custom bar/stem/crank measurements? Sure! Change from carbon wheels to aluminum or vise versa? We’re 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.

Technical Specifications Rodeo 2.0 carbon wheels:

Many of our default build templates include our proprietary Rodeo 2.0 carbon wheels. We’ve found carbon rims to be significantly more robust compared to aluminum rims out in the field and we feel that the increase costs of carbon wheels pay dividends in performance and durability over the life of the bike.

Our 2.0 rims are a proprietary ground-up wheel design born from our own molds and tooling. 700c wheels feature a 30mm depth and a 23.5 mm inner width which serves as a wide platform for modern adventure tires. 650b wheels are often run with wider tires are feature a wider 24mm hookless rim bed and a hookless rim bed reinforced for surviving rock strikes. Both 700c and 650b rims feature a tubeless compatible elevated bead lock design that dramatically minimizes chances of burping.

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

Our standard wheel spec is 28 / 28 hole on Sapim Race spokes and Sapim brass nipples laced to Bitex Centerlock / Rodeo 2.0 disc hubs. 15mm front thru axle, and 12mm rear thru 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. Rim decals can be added and customized to match a bike build at an additional cost.

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. Traildonkey is rated for Road Plus sized tires such as the 650b x 47mm WTB Byway, Terrene Elwood, and others.
