PINE CYCLES Rasa Frameset
RASA was named after the term Tabula Rasa, which is the theory that the human mind starts with a blank slate. This bike can be anything you want it to be. It can be built into an all day road bike, gravel bike, tracklocross bike, light touring bike, commuter bike, dirt road bikepacking bike and so much more. The frame is compatible with 4 forks, 3 tire sizes, and can be used with either rim or disc brakes no matter what tire you chose. No matter the road you seek, the RASA was made for it.
Three tire sizes, one frame. 700x35, 650x48 and 26x2.3 tires are all compatible allowing you to change the personality of your bike by simply swapping wheels. All these tire sizes have relatively the same outer diameter, allowing the balanced and stable all road geometry to be maintained no matter the wheel size you chose.
We’ve resurrected the 1 1/4” headtube from the 90’s mountain bike era, and collaborated with White Industries to offer a premium headset to pair. Doing this allows for a slim, elegant, and lightweight headtube that maintains a clean aesthetic with our traditional steel fork, but still allows us to use a tapered carbon fork as well.
All the customization and capabilities of the bike come from the amazing RASA dropouts. Designed in collaboration with Lichen Precision. We offer 12x142 flat mount for disc brake,130x10 Quick Release inserts for road rim brake and 135x10 Horizontal Track inserts. Allowing you to make the bike anything you want it to be!
