Description

The Mini V3 everybody! The same fast and light Omnium as you know it, now with adjustable rocker dropouts! With the big comfy tires and trusty thru axles of the WiFi, now combined with the new super functional dropouts, we once again we feel we’ve created the ultimate cargo bike where versatility is at the top of the list.

The adjustable rocker dropouts allow you to run a variety of drivetrain options (sorry not simultaneously), ranging from external gears with a derailleur to internal gears and belt drive! Heck you can even run it fixed if you’re that type of nut! The swappable inserts allow you to chose between thru axle and quick release depending on your rear hub spacing and gear component choice. Maybe even carry a spare set to easily replace a broken gear hanger if need be.

The Mini almost speaks for itself. It’s a normal bike with a front rack on steroids!

Its manageable size makes handling familiar, and multimodal transportation a breeze. The rack is ideal for getting around with a load too big for a backpack, and perfect for putting it out front where you can keep an eye on it.

Significant loads on the Mini are a non-issue as long as they are more or less kept within the rack‘s size. The weight of the load has very little influence on steering, giving you surprising amounts of confidence, as the rack‘s support is built directly into the frame.

We like to think this is the most playful cargo bike out there!

Design

The Mini V3 is designed around 55mm (2.15″) tires front and rear. The list of benefits tied to bigger tires like these is long, but here’s a few we find important. High volume tires run at lower tire pressure, creating a significant layer of suspension between you and the ground. This results in far more comfort and control while riding on all surfaces, making easy work of rough roads, gravel, and cobblestones. The fast semi-slick tire tread design results in a minor rolling speed penalty, but more importantly increases grip, stability, and also reduces the risk of punctures.

The frame and fork have also been updated to take 15 x 100mm front and 12 x 142mm rear thru axles. Although thru axles were first seen on downhill mountain bikes in the late 90’s, most disc brake bikes these days use them. They make perfect sense on our cargo bikes. The axle bolts through a closed hole in the frame and fork, then through the hub, and threads directly into the dropout on the other side. Most importantly, this system increases stiffness, rigidity under braking and load, and reduces the risk of incorrect installation and disk brake rub.

The adjustable rocker dropouts are available as a free replacement when buying a new frame kit, or available separately.

Choose between:

  • 10 x 135 QR with IS brake mount – for internal gear hubs or QR rear hubs.
  • 12 x 142 thru axle with IS brake mount – the standard choice for thru axle hubs like our Omnium Wheels.

Please note, all forks will be 15×100 thru axle regardless of dropout choice.
