Truvativ Howitzer Team Bottom Bracket Manuals

Many cyclists do not want to forego a comfortable, upright seating position, but still enjoy the advantages of the racing handlebar - the versatile grip positions and the ability to make yourself small against the wind. The Randonneur 853 Rohloff combines both with its special frame shape. The steeply sloping top tube allows a lot of leeway in the choice of size in order to optimally coordinate the elevation of saddle and handlebars; If you want, you can position the racing handlebar with a 17 ° stem well above the level of the saddle. The comparatively low bottom bracket ensures safety when getting on and off and improves road holding at high speeds with luggage. The adjustable dropouts ensure optimal chain tension over the long term and make it easier to switch between 650B and 700C wheels - slightly higher stability and more tire volume on the one hand, sportiness and lower rolling resistance on the other, depending on the intended use. Shift cables and brake lines are routed outside to make maintenance easier; however, the sensitive light cable is hidden in the frame. In addition to the high-quality lighting system from SON, the SON dynamo also feeds the rear light from Busch & Müller with its integrated brake light function and a USB port on the stem - a great thing in the era of smartphones and digital cameras.

The frame is made of air-hardened Reynolds 853 steel and is subjected to a cathodic electro-dip coating before painting, which makes the material extremely corrosion-resistant - both inside the tube and outside. The matching steel fork offers comfort through high vibration absorption and, like the frame, is approved for a load of up to 180 kilograms. The 44mm head tube ensures great stability at the front end; the proven BSA bottom bracket standard follows the requirement of simple spare parts procurement. The longitudinally adjustable dropout ensures optimal chain tension. The randonneur is completed with a Rohloff Speedhub gearshift and 180mm disc brakes with racing brake levers. The equipment also includes a "SON Edelux II" headlight plus a SON hub dynamo as well as a luggage rack and lowrider from Tubus and SKS Bluemels mudguards. In addition to the regular equipment with Syntace attachments, we offer a titanium package with falcon hunt and a tune package, which is available in different anodized colors. Please refer to the configurator for all variants.
