Frame Geometry Notes

Toe overlap:  Because the Packmule often has large tires and sometimes fenders, many of the sizes will have some toe overlap.  Make sure you are comfortable with this before ordering.  Questions?  Contact the Beekeepers.

Bike size: Top tube length combined with head tube length are better indicators of bike fit than the classic “seat tube length.”

*** Standover clearance:  We measure standover height from the ground to the midpoint of the top tube.

General Geometry Notes

  • All specifications are in inches unless otherwise indicated.
  • Specifications subject to change as components and technology improve.  If you have any critical measurements for your cycling enjoyment, let the Beekeepers know before placing your order.
