Air Land Sea

limited edition all-road/off-road rambler

 

The ‘AirLandSea’ Cascadian Rambler is a limited edition all-road/off-road bicycle made to carry you and your stuff over rough tarmac, gravel, dirt roads, and trails typical to the PNW. With custom graphics illustrated by Kyler Martz and a PNW inspired, 3-color fade paint scheme, the ‘AirLandSea’ is designed to get you there and back with lots of features included in the design and build configurations. Choose from one of 7 stock sizes (refer to 'geometry' drawings below) made to fit riders ranging from 5’ - 6’5” with some overlap between all of the seven stock sizes w sloping top tubes to ensure a close to custom fit and proper handling in all sizes. Each individual size has its own, size specific, tubeset w varying tube diameters and progressive geometry specific to each size.

The concept for the ‘AirLandSea’ came from my experience and desire to create a go anywhere bike that can do many things in comfort and style. It’s spec’d to be able to switch from a front loaded all-road/off-road set-up with a low-trail, steel, touring style fork to a carbon all-road/gravel racer with a simple fork swap. The steel fork has plenty of room for 65mm fenders which work with tires up to 27.5”/650b x 2.25” but works great with a 27.5”/650b x 1.75”/42mm as well as the ability to run 700c x 25-45mm tires as well. In trying to keep the bike as simple as possible, I chose to spec it with a 1x chainring set-up (2x setup w Di2 also available-please inquire) with a clutched rear derailleur since there are some great wide range cassettes available that help to keep shifting simple, keep good chainring/tire clearance, and allow for easy single-speeding should the rear derailleur get smashed far from a shop, it happens.

All in all, the ‘AirLandSea’ is perhaps the one-bike-do-it-all quiver killer. Take it exploring, touring, shredding, randonneuring, cx or gravel racing, or just ride it to work and back home. I hope you like it.

Bags

'AirLandSea' Ozette and Paloma bags

by Swift Industries

 

Along with the frameset and complete complete bike options are 2 custom designed ‘Ozette’ and 'Paloma' handlebar bags made by my friends at Swift Industries here in Seattle, WA. Available in 3 sizes (S, M, L) the ‘AirLandSea’ Ozette includes some special features such as ‘molle’ webbing on the back of the bag for a pocket, feed bag, and a stitched on tab for a Boombot ‘Rex’ bluetooth speaker. The Paloma also uses the same fabric and color scheme but works without a front rack. With a nod to hunting jackets of yore, the Buffalo plaid w blaze orange pocket accents, adds to the overall customness of this special project and also includes very a special ‘Clarence the Creature’ patch sewn on front. Complementing the 'Ozette' model is a newly designed,  fully adjustable decaleur (bag stabilizer) that works to keep your fancy new bag in check over the rough stuff.
