Roll through 2021 (and beyond) in style with the new year Rodeo Labs Flaanimal 5.0 Titanium! Rodea Labs has announced pre-orders on their latest design, the 2021 Flaanimal 5.0 Titanium. Due to the ultra-long industry lead times, the team expects delivery of the bikes around mid-August 2021.
This is a very interesting development from the Colorado-based bike brand, as traditionally they have only built carbon and steel bikes. The new 100% proprietary design 5.0 Ti will be built in Taiwan with custom-butted 3/2.5 titanium tube sets.
Rodeo first prototyped the titanium Flaanimal in 2016 and the results were fantastic, but as a small company we chose to focus our energy on the more broadly attainable steel Flaanimal frameset while we iterated the design. Now, almost five years later we’ve returned to titanium in our quest to build the finest and most versatile adventure bicycle that we can.
The Rodeo Labs Titanium Flaanimal 5.0 frameset pre-order will set you back $3050. Several build and paint options are also available starting at $4995. Personally, we think this would be a killer build with SRAM Force AXS and an ENVE cockpit. Learn more at rodeo-labs.com.
Message from Rodeo Labs and availability
Our first production run of Flaanimal 5.0 Titanium has already been put into motion. Due to ultra long industry lead times we do not expect production to conclude before late July 2021. Framesets should be shipping to customers by mid August. Our first production run has a specific number of frames and will no doubt sell out before production concludes. For those who want to be among the first to adopt our the next evolution of the Flaanimal we encourage purchasing as soon as your circumstances allow.
We understand that many people will not be able to wait until August for a new bike. If that is the case we encourage you to check out the feature-identical steel+carbon Flaanimal 5.0 which will begin shipping to first customers in March 2021.
Framesets must be reserved at full cost. Builds can be reserved at full cost through this page, or you may contact us to arrange a 50% deposit on your desired build.
