Although we are a bit late for Messenger Appreciation day (October 9th) it’s never a bad time to acknowledge and appreciate the work they do. Bike couriers around the world convert car and truck traffic to bike trips on a daily basis, relieving cities of congestion and smog. We could simply not be more proud of our heritage.
Apart from all the good that couriers are doing for the environment, we are continuously amazed by the incredible community. We have been extremely fortunate to have the support of the global bike courier community throughout the ten years of our existence. You don’t get enough credit!
Our limited run of anniversary frames is covered in logos from messenger companies from all across the globe, that use Omnium bikes in their daily work routines. As for the paintjob, we’ve drawn inspiration from a typical well-used messenger bike; the kind that’s seen thousands of kilometres in the streets, even more lockups, and course completely “sticker bombed”. The same goes for the matching Anniversary long sleeve shirt.
The frames will initially be up for grabs for the courier companies who are represented on the frames, while the shirts are available for all.
We are proud to have made it 10 years in this industry, but we know that we couldn’t have made it without the messenger community. Thank you!
The Cargo 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.
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.
