Flaanimal is a multi use steel adventure frameset designed and built around the themes of versatility and adaptability by Rodeo Adventure Labs out of Denver, CO. Flaanimal is one of the most feature rich and enjoyable steel framesets out there.

This is an awesome gravel, cyclocross, road, do-it-all drop bar bike I had built up by Bicycles Plus in Dallas and is in nearly new condition. The 3.0 is no longer available while they transition to 4.0 which is also a limited run. This is a great price for a complete build on this very hard to find bike!

$2,350 does not include wheels, pedals or bottle cages but I have 2 wheelsets available as optional (listed below). Local pickup (Dallas) or buyer pays shipping. Paypal or Venmo accepted. No trades. I'd rather not disassemble but PM me if you want to negotiate frame only or frame + wheels combo.

Build list as follows:

Reynolds 725 custom butted CroMoly Frame - 56cm
Rodeo Spork 1.1 carbon fork
Chris King Inset 7 headset (red)
Ritchey WCS Logic II 42mm alloy bars
Ritchey Comp alloy stem
Ritchey WCS Carbon seatpost 25mm offset
Fabric Scoop Race shallow saddle (Ti rails)
SRAM Force 1 HRD brakes
SRAM Force 1 Crankset 172.5
Wolftooth 40T drop stop chainring (direct mount)
SRAM Force 1 long cage rear derailleur
SRAM PG-1170 11-36T cassette
Cinelli Space Tape (limited edition bar tape--you can't find this stuff anywhere)

Frame will clear a 700c/45c or 650b/47c tire but also looks great as a 25-28c roadie setup

HED Belgium+/Industry Nine red hubs (match the headset!) wheelset hand built by Transit Bikes on Lower Greenville and setup tubeless ready (stems/tape). No tires. Shown in the first 2 pics. +$750

Rodeo Labs 2.0 carbon wheels - 30mm deep, 24mm wide internal, handbuilt with Rodeo branded (Bitex) hubs. Also setup tubeless with 38c Maxxis Rambler 120TPI tires. Shown in the 3-4th pics. +$1200 (Available with bike only)

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 features at a glance:

Flat mount brake mounts front and rear
12mm through axle rear 15mm through axle front
Sliding dropouts for geared, flat mount brake, 12mm axle builds (included)
68mm BSA English threaded bottom bracket
EC44 tapered headset spec.
Frame pump mounting peg
Integrated rack mounts and fender mounts front and rear
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

Similar to Mosaic, Seven, Specialized Sequoia, Niner RLT Steel, Salsa (multiple models), OPEN (except steel!)

Single speed through axle dropout available separately
Off the back large profile flat mount brake mount available separately
Alfine / Rohloff QR dropouts available separately
12mm front fork axle conversion available separately
160mm rear flat mount adapter available separately
160mm post mount brake adapters available separately

I've since stripped down to frame only if anyone's interested.  $700 buyer pays shipping.

Still have HED Belgium+ wheels, CK Red headset and Force1 groupset available as add-ons.

What would you be looking to get for the HED wheels and Force 1 separately?  Thanks
