The Amazon is our Cyclocross/touring/upright road and Audax frame that can be configured in a multitude of variations to meet your performance and riding criteria. Complete rack and fender braze-ons, with ample tyre clearance allows you to use and attach anything that your riding requires. The frame is cantilever, V-brake, and disc brake compatible as well as having three sets of water bottle bosses.
